      Microsoft engaged Crimson Consulting Company, a leading provider of consulting services to the high technology industry, to conduct a comparative study of developer productivity with integration servers Microsoft® BizTalk® Server 2006 and SAP XI 3.0, using mySAP™ ERP in heterogeneous environments. A third-party lab specializing in professional services practices for Microsoft BizTalk Server and SAP XI executed the study per Crimson’s direction.

      To compare the savings achieved by Microsoft BizTalk Server and SAP XI, Crimson created three testing scenarios that replicate the flow of synchronous and asynchronous messages in typical heterogeneous business integration situations in IT environments:

      1. Emulation of an order placement on a retail online marketplace
      2. Shipment tracking for a placed order
      3. Messaging between mySAP ERP and a retail online marketplace

      These whitepapers present the results of this study and discuss the value proposition of BizTalk Server.
