Teched Australia 2006 Recap – BizTalk Server 2006 and Office Business Scorecard Manager 2005


I thought I’d take some time to capture some of my thoughts for each of the sessions I was lucky enough to be involved in this year.

This was my second session at Teched and was lucky enough to have Nick Ward by my side who is our national SQL specialist. Through dialog with most of the customers I deal with in the BizTalk world, BAM is often under utilized  – if at all - so I thought that trying to do a session on using BAM and then also surfacing aggregated data through BSM would be valuable to the audience. We had about 50 people in this session, and 10 of you posted final evaluations.

Generally, most of you who responded found the information somewhat useful although some of you felt I could have done a better job. Thanks for your feedback. I questioned in my preparation whether it would be useful to actually do a demo and then show how the demo was pieced together v actually build an entire BAM scenario from scratch. I chose the 1st, but it may have been more valuable to do the 2nd in hindsight. We did position this as a level 200 (i.e. basic technical) but it appears as though people would have liked some more detail in the session as 3 of the 10 said it was not technical enough.

One of you found the presentation completely ineffective, which is OK, but I would appreciate some face to face time if you felt so strongly compelled to write that. Others found the session very useful and relevant. Either way, thanks again for your feedback. The overall scores were;
