The Biztalk 2006 Beta Program is now available for sign-up. 


Biztalk 2006 simplifies the administration and deployment process.  Some of the other major enhancements are improved BAM, executing pipelines inside an Orchestration, a flat file schema wizard, and suspended message routing, just to name a few.


To sign-up for the program follow these steps:

1.  Go to

2.  Sign in with your passport

3.  At the top of the page it should say something like “if you have a Guest Id click here”. 

4.  Enter: BizTalkBetaTeam (case sensitive) as your guest id.

5.  Fill out the survey.  I think the link is located on the left side of the screen.  Make sure you do not use a PO Box.

6.  You should get a welcome email once you are processed.  I do not know how long this will take.  Mine took several days.


I recommend anyone interested in Biztalk to take advantage to this beta program.  It will give you a great opportunity to see the new features of the upcoming release and to have access to the beta news group.  Just a note, Visual Studios 2005 Beta 2 is also required.


Once you have installed Biztalk 2006, do not forget to check out for samples and videos covering the new features of Biztalk Server 2006.
