BCC can be used for BizTalk administration and management


In my years of experience with BizTalk, I have found that BizTalk developers tend to get sloppy during deployment, administration and monitoring. BCC will help to manage, monitor and administer BizTalk artifacts in any large BizTalk integration project.

Top Five Reasons to Use BizTalk Control Center (BCC)

  • BizTalk artifacts can be monitored, administered and managed remotely.
  • Tracking system enabled the admin to keep track of changes to BizTalk artifacts.
  • Easily manage BizTalk artifact deployment and use the verification system to check successful deployment.
  • SSO module helps the BizTalk admin to edit/create SSO settings on the fly and enables to keep all the configuration information at one location.
  • Create new hosts and host instances with ease.
  • Bonus: You don't have to pay a dime.

Speedcode Navigation system (Wow!)

A speedcode is a numeric value given to any module. A speedcode can be specified to directly navigate to a specific module.

I have done a lot of research and finally decided on this one for the following reasons

1. Suppose there are two biztalk development groups and both the groups use the same BizTalkControlCenter (since its installed on the server.)
In this scenario, the two dev groups have different BizTalk Applications and therefore they will have two different profiles.
Both the groups will have different views since they use different BizTalk Application groups.

2. Note that the profile once created will not be changed, (unless u drop and re-create user). So this enables two users to view two different biztalk applications, hence avoid conflicts to biztalk artifacts (accidentally starting/stopping others artifacts.)
Aslo u may be interested in only some BizTalk Applications and not all of them.

3. Default BizTalk Application is what u choose as default while creating a new BizTalk Application. When you create a new BizTalk Application using Admin console, it asks whether you want to make it as the default application, thats the default application, BCC only shows it.

Does this make sense?

4. The speedcode 603 is under-development and I asking users to donate to develop that module, until then u have to do it manually. Wink | ;)
