Microsoft BizTalk Migrator - 2020 Migration Tool

Tool Released
27th October 2020

Microsoft’s BizTalk Migrator has finally landed – the migration tool that takes your on-premises BizTalk applications and converts them into a solution running natively on Azure Integration Services.  At 345 we have been working with the tool since the start of the private preview and we feel we know it better than just about anyone.  If you have BizTalk applications to migrate – or your customers do – we are the best placed to help you achieve success with your migrations so you can start to benefit from the lower operating costs of integrating via Azure!
