Microsoft

BizTalk is well suited as middleware. Where you wish to translate an input file into an output file and send it to some endpoint. In our case, we used it to convert and send files to SAP. In many ways, it very flexible, and you can do almost anything you want with it. In many ways, it's a better solution than your SAP XI or PI as middleware, since it's much less expensive, and allows you do interface with non-SAP systems.

Recommended for:
  1. Multiple systems to interface for a task in the company (example: to sell an item your POS must communicate with the inventory software, then to accounting, then to service, etc).
  2. When a task must bring information from several external services.
  3. When you have to deal with multiple APIs.
Not recommended for:
  1. Data transformation (although Talend has a software for that that works with Talend ESB)

Pros

Microsoft

  • It is very user friendly. Users can change rules during run time and change workflow.
  • Huge capacity for queueing messages. It supports all types of adapters like Oracle, Salesforce, SMTP, FTP, etc. Also users can built custom adaptors.
  • If users want to dynamically deploy their solution without any downtime, this is a perfect solution. BizTalk will be a good fit, especially for public-facing websites.
  • Well-proven in the market. I used it when developing a website for Virgin Trains, catering more than 800K user requests per day.
  • Helps in load balancing.

Microsoft

  • Microsoft BizTalk is over engineered for some situtations

Talend

  • You have to log in to each module separately
  • 900 connectors is a lot, but if you have a custom app to interface, you have to develop your connector

      Usability

      Microsoft

      I gave a 7 because this product BizTalk does need time and training to get familiar with the usability and features, it is not that easy to use.

      Alternatives Considered

      Microsoft

      BizTalk was selected here mainly because it is easy to integrate to a .NET application (most of them are Web Service, WCF SOAP, WCF REST and Web API) and many backend databases are Microsoft SQL Server. Another benefit is that the monitoring job is easy to set up and centralize with other .NET application monitoring jobs.

      Talend

      • First, it is a lot of cheaper than the closest competitor.
      • Second, Talend ESB is in the same league as other stronger brands.
      • Third, the functions and modules are a 360 solution to implement an ESB.
      Talend has a different approach to license since it is based on programmers and run times, not to users of cores.

      Return on Investment

      Microsoft

      • A positive impact has been the quicker turnaround time of a part request and that part showing up in SAP using Biztalk as middleware.
      • A somewhat negative impact has been the somewhat insufficient error logging/message capture settings that Biztalk provide. This has caused occasional delays when attempted to create parts for the business.
      • A somewhat negative impact has been the need to have a specialized developer who understands Biztalk to troubleshoot issues with the Biztalk and SAP interaction when creating parts, and when adding new fields to the parts.

      • Considerably cheaper than oracle service bus
      • As I said before, you can run a POC using the community version of Talend Studio.
      • Built from Open Source/ well-proven technologies, and a big community to support those technologies.
