The BizTalk Migrator/Azure Integration Migrator is designed to analyse your BizTalk artefacts and convert these to Azure artefacts i.e., Logic Apps, API Management, Functions etc.
With the growing functionality that Azure Integration Services provides us with and with more companies adopting a cloud-first approach to their IT Architecture, this leaves the question: How do companies who have invested millions in their integration systems built on BizTalk move to the cloud?

A look into Azure Integration Services compared to BizTalk Server and Ballard Chalmers' Data Integration Hub - Framework and its use.
