The company I am working at is creating a common project with another company. There will be an intermediate server (most probably SQL server 2005) where the data between us is communicated. The other company mentioned that they will be implementing BizTalk as a messaging system to know when the data we send is available so that they copy it to their own server. The interfaces are done in ASP.NET. My questions are:
1. To what extent is BizTalk facilitating the communication process?
2. CanÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚Â™t this be done using flags (database fields) instead of BizTalk?
3. What are the benefits in using BizTalk?
