SOME OF OUR BizTalk Server Consultancy Service ENGAGEMENTS


Ballard Chalmers provides consultancy on the full range of BizTalk Server integration solutions including Enterprise Application Integration (EAI), Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), and e-Procurement development and integration with SAP, CRM, EDI, Salesforce, Dynamics AX and other line-of-business systems.

Here at Ballard Chalmers, we provide wide range of BizTalk Server consultancy services, including Enterprise Application Integration (EAI), Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), and e-Procurement development and integration with SAP, CRM, EDI, Salesforce, Dynamics AX and other line-of-business systems.

Like an icing on a cake, we also provide expert consultancy services in the design, software development, deployment and monitoring of BizTalk Server artifacts:

  • Schemas & Maps – BizTalk Server uses XML Schema Definition (XSD) to define the structure of the messages.
  • Orchestrations – manages workflow and message flow between systems.
  • Pipelines – custom message handling services, including managing non-standard message formats and encryption-decryption.
  • Send and Receive Ports – endpoints through which data is exchanged.
  • Adapters – used to connect directly to line-of-business systems such as SAP or from underlying data sources such as SQL Server or FTP. Custom adaptors are developed to support proprietary systems.
  • Business Rules Engine (BRE) – provides a version generic rules engine to support business rules that business users can update.
  • Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) – all transactions can be monitored, and BAM acts as a miniature real-time Business Intelligence model to provide real-time monitoring.
  • Continuous Integration & Continuous Deployment – Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) and BizTalk Deployment Framework (BTDF) provide for automated deployment.

Other components/frameworks we provide consultancy services in include:

  • BizUnit – a unit testing tool for BizTalk, offers a flexible and extensible declarative test framework.
  • BizTalk 360 – web-based support/monitoring tool for BizTalk Server environments that we can configure to monitor the service status.
  • BizTalk Server Training – to assist companies that wish to maintain their existing or new BizTalk systems, our expert Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) can provide help on-site with BizTalk Development and BizTalk System Administration.

Ballard Chalmers did an excellent job of knitting together the front end and back engines of our website. They worked well with our external consultants and I would thoroughly recommend them. We continue to work with Ballard Chalmers due to their huge effort – they are supportive and loyal.

Head of Policy and Public Affairs – Royal Geographical Society

Ballard Chalmers did an excellent job of delivering exactly what we required, when we required it. I was impressed by how quickly they understood the legal process and were able to deliver a flexible, yet scalable solution that can keep pace as our business grows.

Business Systems Manager – Shoosmiths

We’ve used Ballard Chalmers for integration using BizTalk in a number of applications. They are refreshingly straightforward and practical and we are very pleased with the work they have done for us.

Head of IT – Exterion Media

The integration with HMCTS is critical to our business. In the short time available, the easy option would’ve been to develop a specific point solution, adding yet more complexity to our systems landscape. Instead, the use of BizTalk provides us with flexibility to enhance the solution as the integration with HMCTS evolves, whilst being able to extend its use, if required.

Business Systems Manager – Shoosmiths

Very pragmatic, down to earth organisation who have given excellent support in the development and implementation of our new Biztalk infrastructure. We started using them in 2014 and have just engaged on a further Biztalk project. Refreshing to find an IT organisation that has real technical excellence and delivers without fuss.

BizTalk Integration

Why Ballard Chalmers BizTalk Consultancy Services

Let’s discuss the REASON FOR BizTalk consulting services. Why exactly is it necessary for the development of your business?

BizTalk Server was established two decades ago with a glimpse of the future that many machines and software will need interaction between different machines to keep track of productivity and achieve a particular goal.

This integrity started surfacing and paved the way for more than 500 companies and organizations around the world to use the BizTalk server with the foundation of systems integration for the Microsoft Platform to manage workflows and exchange data.

However, the future of systems integration, as with software development, also clearly lies in the cloud.

And BizTalk Server will eventually be replaced by Azure Integration Services, which contains all the same features in a modern cloud environment.

It is worthy to note that the demand will grow in subsequent years, which is a need to invest in Ballard Chalmers to provide professional BizTalk consulting services to grow your business.

We strongly recommend using Azure Integration Services for all new systems integration projects. As a Microsoft Partner, our consultants are industry veterans and experts in the features and technology of Microsoft technology.

Our team of professional consultants are experienced, highly trained and certified through Microsoft in their respective areas. We provide full consultancy services on migrating applications from BizTalk Server to Azure Integration Services. We are also available for BizTalk outsourcing, resourcing or support.
