Moving to the Azure Service Bus - Some questions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We currently use BizTalk for integrating a number of systems.

    We are looking to move away from BizTalk due to licence costs and training costs and a steep learning curve.

    In addition to this our BizTalk solution is largely used as an ETL with some workflow.

    The options we have are:

    1. Rebuild current solution using SSIS with Windows Workflow Foundation.

    2. Move to an Enterprise Service Bus Model.

    If we go with option 1 we have the skillset and we will make huge savings on licences(no longer require BizTalk). However, if we have a new requirement to integrate with another application we have to extend the SSIS Package every time and given that we are using SSIS there are only certain applications we can integrate with.

    Regarding option 2, how easy is it to extend and why should we use this over option 1? What else does it give us?

    Any advice appreciated.
