Three in a row, thats what they say! Today, November 7, 2005, the world would see the release of three great products in the evolution of Software and IT Industry.
- Visual Studio 2005
- SQL Server 2005
- BizTalk 2006
Visual Studio 2005 is the next generation of development tool for developing high-end Enteprise Web/Windows/Smart Client Applications targetting .NET Framework 2.0.
SQL Server 2005 is one of the best Database platforms in the history of Databases. SQL Server 2005 is tightly integrated with CLR 2.0 and interoperability between them is simply mind boggling. With Business Intelligence, Reporting and Analysis Services, SQL Server 2005 will rule the DB World for long time to come.
I will write more about BizTalk 2006 after exploring the major changes. But for now, please check http://www.microsoft.com/biztalk/2006/prodinfo/what-is-biztalk-server.mspx
The Launch is going to happen parallelly across many locations in the United States of America, complemented by subsequent events in different parts of the world in the coming months.
The Agenda and loads of useful information is available at http://www.microsoft.com/events/2005launchevents/agenda.mspx. There are a wealth of Webcasts by well-known MSDN Speakers and in short, this will be an eventful month for the IT Industry.
For now, I am keeping my fingers crossed for today's Lauch though I cannot participate in person for the same.
Cheers and Happy Programming !!!
