Microsoft Hedging on BizTalk Server 2004 Due Date
But the company is talking about packaging and pricing for its integration server.Microsoft Corp. on Wednesday released pricing and packaging details for its BizTalk Server 2004 integration server. But the company is remaining mum on when the product will launch. Earlier this year, Microsoft execs said they were planning on shipping BizTalk Server 2004, code-named "Voyager," by the end of calendar 2003. But with the year winding down, it is looking less and less likely that Microsoft will make good on its goal. As a result, its looking like the product will live up to its name and be released some time next year. Microsoft officials said on Wednesday that the company is planning to offer four versions of BizTalk Server 2004the same ones it offers for the 2002 BizTalk release. These are the Enterprise, Standard, Partner and Developer editions.
