Organizations using complex Azure/hybrid integration solutions often face challenges in visualizing the flow of messages across distributed resources. Some attempt to address this by utilizing different native monitoring tools available, such as Log Analytics, App Insights, etc.

However, this approach can get problematic as it requires expertise in each of these tools, which may be lacking in non-technical Azure operations teams. In addition, they would also not support on-premises services like BizTalk Server or SAP.

In this webinar, Michael Stephenson will present real-world examples with similar Azure/hybrid scenarios, along with a solution enabling end-to-end message flow tracking with significantly reduced effort.

Key Takeaways

  • Several advantages in terms of functionality and ease of use
  • Real-world examples that showcased the concept of employee self-service
  • Integrating with SAP SuccessFactors using Logic Apps and API Management
  • Events hold business value and help to track the progress of critical operations
