BizTalk Server Tracking User Interface

BizTalk Server 2000 will be released with a user interface (UI) used for tracking all of the documents that move through BizTalk Server 2000. This UI can be used by both business analysts and system administrators. The business analyst can monitor and analyze the documents that come through BizTalk Server 2000 to create new business strategies for the corporation. For example, by analyzing the customer data in the BizTalk documents, business analysts can determine customers' buying patterns, customer types, and so on. You can perform these tasks by creating custom fields that are used to analyze the information. System administrators can set up what is being tracked, establish activity-logging settings, purge settings, and perform troubleshooting analysis.

Both source documents and destination documents can be tracked as they move through BizTalk Server 2000. You can choose to track a single document or batches of documents and then log the processing activity related to the tracked document. The tracking UI also enables you to locate a document's exact location and capture information about the source and destination document's name and type, user-defined fields, and date and time parameters. In addition, you can use the tracking UI to save the data in either XML format or a native format and view the details of the document activity information.

Summary

BizTalk Server 2000 provides a set of tools that enable you to share documents among different corporations and within a corporation and edit specifications on which those documents are based. Although BizTalk Server 2000 works with a wide range of document formats, the native format for BizTalk is XML documents that are defined in schemas. BizTalk Server will help make it possible for XML to become the standard format used for moving information through corporations. Because BizTalk Server 2000 works with different formats, it is capable of working with existing systems while still being capable of integrating with systems that will be built over the next several years.
