Microsoft communicated in the keynote of the BizTalk Summit today that BizTalk Server will stay in the center of the Microsoft application stack for years with a stronger roadmap than ever.

  • Release cadence for BizTalk Server major releases will be every two years.
  • An BizTalk R2 release will be published every second year in between the major releases, so BizTalk 2013 R2 will be available in H2/2014.
  • BizTalk CU updates will be published every quarter.

These are really good news to the complete BizTalk community and all customers looking forward to an interesting integration future with Microsoft.
