BizTalk 2016 Administrator Immersion

This course teaches everything a new BizTalk Server Administrator needs to know to "hit the ground running": installation and configuration, disaster recovery, tracking, troubleshooting, deployment, scripting, a variety of community tools, and, of course, best practices. If it concerns a BizTalk Server administrator, we cover it. All students work with their own multi-server BizTalk Server group. If you're a Systems Administrator who deploys and manages BizTalk Server environments, or a Systems Engineer who designs and manages enterprise infrastructure, or even a BizTalk Developer who wants to see (and support) how the other half lives, this course will equip you with the skills and knowledge you need.
