Kudos' to the Mary Kay Integration Team for hitting a significant milestone today! They have finished successfully migrating a large BizTalk 2002 implementation to BizTalk 2004.
As most of you know, the upgrade path from version of BizTalk prior to BizTalk 2004 posed some significant challenges. For various reasons, there were many BizTalk 'applications' that were left behind as the rest of the business moved forward to take advantage of new BizTalk versions.
Now that those 'legacy' bits have been upgraded that leaves us a clean upgrade path to BizTalk 2006, and a single BizTalk environment globally, for the time being anyway!
Way to go guys!
