How It Works
Forrest T. Jones & Company (FTJ) needed to migrate applications from Microsoft BizTalk 2010 to BizTalk 2016, including identifying gaps and determining how to deal with ongoing production issues.
As part of its BSAM solution, TwoConnect provided FTJ with services for migrating to BizTalk 2016 and support its existing production environment.
BSAM focuses on supporting, maintaining, and adapting FTJ’s integration solutions to ensure the seamless continuity of business operations.
Established in 1953, FTJ provides insurance programs to more than 80 national associations and employer groups with more than 1.5 million
members. FTJ strives to meet customer needs by applying the latest technology and marketing expertise in a dynamic environment that produces the best results for members.
TwoConnect simplifies software development through its team of Microsoft MVPs, Azure developers, development managers, trainers, and a worldwide community of
integration experts. The company has led hundreds of integration implementations covering all major industry sectors.
FTJ brought in TwoConnect to assist with its migration from BizTalk Server 2010 to BizTalk Server 2016. FTJ needed to identify gaps, develop the migration roadmap, and migrate BizTalk applications while determining the best ways to deal with ongoing production issues and manage future challenges.
As part of its BSAM solution, TwoConnect provided strategies to improve performance in the BizTalk 2016 production environment. FTJ received recommendations for the Runtime Groupings; usage of BizTalk Health Monitor; and how to improve availability, database backup strategy, environment configuration, and business activity reporting. TwoConnect structured the managed services to address FTJ’s unique needs and allow greater flexibility in the workplace—all within FTJ’s budget and to the required service level agreement.
TwoConnect BSAM let FTJ concentrate on its core business while TwoConnect focused on BizTalk, providing FTJ with increased performance in the new BizTalk 2016 production environment and better results from BizTalk Health Monitor. BSAM focuses exclusively on supporting, maintaining, and adapting FTJ’s integration solutions to ensure the seamless continuity of business operations. The BSAM solution utilizes BizTalk Server 2016 Enterprise Edition including BizTalk EDI Runtime, SQL Server 2016 Enterprise Edition, BizTalk Server 2010 Enterprise Edition including BizTalk EDI Runtime, and SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition.
“TwoConnect’s BizTalk Server Application Management solution and its award-winning BizTalk Managed Services team focused exclusively on building solutions to complete FTJ’s migration to BizTalk 2016 and bring it up to full speed. It also implemented guidelines for supporting, maintaining, and adapting all their integration solutions to ensure the seamless continuity of business operations going forward. The BSAM solution targets problems and presents solutions that empower companies to focus on what’s important and remain leaders in their industry," TwoConnect President Javier Mariscal said.
