We had to use it for a project that had a high volume of data moving around. We looked into doing it ourselves and found it way too complicated to learn in a short amount of time. We hired a consultant and he was not cheap. If you can become very good at BizTalk then you'll likely have a very well paying job for a long time to come.
On other smaller projects we used other products that allow you to point to 2 systems and drag and drop field relationships and were quite easy to use. As I recall, this was years ago, BizTalk was a lot of code just to do the small things because it gives you so much fine control over the process.
There are only 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don't.
It certainly looks like there have been a fair few changes in the 2010 and 2013 versions but whether or not they change the general experience, I don't know.
I suppose ease of use and fine-tuneability are always going to be the big trade-off with this kind of package and what may be a godsend for one task might well be a complete burden for the next. I would hope that the tools would have undergone a fair bit of improvement (not that I know for sure that the supplier isn't still using 2006).
Because this thing on facebook was reported by The Daily Fail (LOL, see what I did there?) that means it is automatically untrue, so the post must have been fabricated by The Daily Fail in some way, and so must have been all of the replies. It's the only possible explanation because everything in The Daily Fail is untrue. I'm going to wait until the BBC writes about the exact same thing because that will instantly make it credible and true. Yes I know I haven't actually said anything about the quiz itself, but being a lefty liberal puppet allows me to apply ad hominem fallacies to things I disagree with and instantly dismiss the article and instead criticise your failings as a human being for posting a Daily Fail link (lol, see what I did there!)
So when changing colors of a bar or chart or whatever in SSRS, when you set the „Transparency“ of the color in the dialog, you’re really setting the OPACITY. I just spent a half hour wondering why every time I set a color in my report the damn element disappeared. And I hate working with reports, so that’s a half hour I want back, dammit…

Could be worse...one of my active projects uses the CR web viewer. It worked great three weeks ago, then mysteriously didn't work a few days ago. It took 4-5 hours to get it going again. I know how you feel!
There's no intemperance needed Intemperance: "lack of moderation or restraint", so use it's inverse.
when you sound like all the landmasses CONTINENTS becomes CONTINENCE: "Sexual abstinence as a state of life"
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
So here I am, drinking and remembering my dead sister who was smashed by Melanoma 18 years ago pretty much to the minute. I got to donate Bone Marrow in what at the time was an experimental procedure for the particular type of cancer. The wankers involved pissed about for too many weeks before chemotheraping her Immune System to death as they were excited about the fact my Mother had died from Melanoma 7 years 7.5 months earlier.
Thanks for all the well wishers on CP 16.5 hours ago, but I won't see her again. Heaven, Jesus, Jehova Mohammed, Allah, Joseph Smith and all the rest are fictional characters to help the weak minded get through life.
The Multi-Armed Elephant God best referenced in a Simpsons episode is more real.
Hope to see a God or Cancer at some time, they won't survive the next 50 years of hate I have waiting for either of them.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
