  • Design changes and feature requests cannot be made

Why Xavor

Xavor’s BizTalk team has performed dozens of BizTalk upgrades over the years by virtue of which we have developed a set of repeatable frameworks, or accelerators, that allow us to upgrade your BizTalk Server in no time.

Before the upgrade, we perform the following activities to create your very own implementation and deployment roadmap:

  • Evaluation of Enterprise-level strategy: We start by analyzing the specific needs of your organization to determine whether you should opt for an on premises, cloud, or hybrid solution.
  • Existing IT Systems Evaluation: We also evaluate the existing systems and hardware to determine whether a direct upgrade is possible. If not, we will recommend the additional software/hardware that needs to be procured based on your organizational requirements.
  • Implementation: Based on the findings of the initial two steps we will create a custom implementation and deployment plan to upgrade your BizTalk server and migrate existing systems to the new version in a seamless manner
