MSDN Webcast: BizTalk Server Adapters for DB2 and Host Files (Level 200)

Organizations are using Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 to integrate and orchestrate composite solutions that span multiple systems and applications. Key assets in most enterprise solutions are the line-of-business (LOB) data stores on heritage IBM host systems. These data stores include IBM mainframe zSeries Sequential Access Method (SAM), Virtual Sequential Access Method (VSAM), and Partitioned Data Set (PDS) data sets, in addition to IBM midrange iSeries or i5 (AS/400) physical files and members. Records within these files are often program-described, redefined, or recurring, making it difficult to read and write without complex data mapping and conversion. In this webcast, learn how to apply the tools and capabilities of the BizTalk Adapters for Host Systems (including BizTalk Adapter for DB2 and BizTalk Adapter for Host Files) to efficiently access existing LOB information. Based on underlying Microsoft .NET data providers for DB2 and host files, these adapters offer flexible configuration tools, send and receive port capability, and a solution that requires no programming for integrating BizTalk Server with existing heritage data stores.
