Sequoia XML Portal Server Supports Biztalk

Sequoia Software Corporation announced its support for Microsoft’s BizTalk Framework, and that its application for deploying interactive EIPs, Sequoia XML Portal Server (XPS), is compliant with the BizTalk 1.0 specification. BizTalk compliance provides benefits to systems administrators integrating Sequoia’s XPS with their legacy systems by reducing the effort required to transport information between disparate systems. With the BizTalk framework in place, administrators are able to more easily connect their various applications within XPS. BizTalk speeds data exchange by aiding in the transportation of data from legacy systems to XPS. At the same time, it reduces the time and complexity involved in building software connectors linking legacy systems and XPS. Sequoia XPS 2.0 with BizTalk 1.0 compliance is available immediately. www.sequoiasoftware.com
