      Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004 supports the goal of creating business processes that unite separate applications into a coherent whole. This release enables you to connect diverse applications, and then to graphically construct and modify business processes that use the services those applications provide. Additionally, this release brings more to the core BizTalk Server 2004 engine, including a mechanism for specifying business rules, better ways to manage and monitor applications, and support for single sign-on for those applications.
      BizTalk Server 2004 also adds new services for information workers. These services include a group of Business Activity Services, such as Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) for analyzing running business processes; support for business process provisioning and configuration; and services that enable information workers to set up and manage interactions with trading partners. BizTalk Server 2004 also adds technology for creating human workflow services, enabling people to interact with business processes using familiar tools, such as Microsoft Outlook.
