ePartners partners with 5by5 for BizTalk Integration

I’m hanging out at Microsoft for another day during their PAC conference so it was pleasant to see a release from ePartners that they are partnering with 5by5 to use 5by5’s Bridgewerx product as part of ePartners’ Microsoft BizTalk integration services.  Microsoft continues to blow me away in how they work with and manage their partner relationships across all lines of business and – at this meeting – I’m seeing a very clear focus from them on expanding and embracing their partners even further.  One of my other companies – Oxlo – is also a deep BizTalk partner (it’s a key part of their product) – BizTalk and Sharepoint are definitely getting a lot of play as the next wave of Microsoft server-related products.
