BizTalk pain points turned into a successful commercial product
We started in 2010 as a one-man-shop and have been growing organically ever since. BizTalk360 was born purely out of frustration faced by Saravana Kumar, a credible professional in the BizTalk Server community. He has been a Microsoft Integration MVP since 2007 and was awarded “Integration MVP of the year 2013” by Microsoft.
Saravana has worked with medium to large enterprise customers using BizTalk servers since 2002. Time and time again, he came across the same problem each customer was having administering, operating, and monitoring their BizTalk environments.
The default tooling (like BizTalk Admin Console) lacked some enterprise qualities like security, auditing, analytics, monitoring capabilities, and so on. It also demanded a high level of BizTalk knowledge to do the very basic things.
Majority of the customers ended up building their own custom management and monitoring solutions. That’s what triggered Saravana Kumar to build a generic management, monitoring, and analytics solution for BizTalk Server and make it affordable to BizTalk Server customer.
“My mission is to make Kovai.co a product company that launches multiple successful products at scale.”Saravana Kumar, Founder CEO – Kovai.co
Having worked as a consultant for Microsoft BizTalk Server for over a decade in London, I realized there was a desperate need of a better product to manage and monitor BizTalk Server.
I started building BizTalk360 out of sheer passion which was well received by professionals in BizTalk. We acquired our first customer from Hong Kong in 2011 and in the following years have built an exceptional product company in Coimbatore, India and UK. Today, we have more than 650+ enterprise customers across the globe.
Our team keeps innovating with new products like Serverless360 and a SaaS product in the Knowledge Management space – Document360.
