Currently he is working as a Senior Azure Solution Architect with VNB Consulting, Inc. He is specialized in Healthcare and Life Sciences Integration using BizTalk Server and Azure.

He is certified as Microsoft Certified Technical Specialist (MCTS) in BizTalk Server 2010 and is also a Gold Member of the HL7 Organization. He is a Microsoft Virtual Technical Specialist (BizTalk, Azure) for Healthcare (P-TSP) and a member of the Azure Advisory Group.

He is considered the “go to” person for HL7 Integration. Howard is working with Microsoft Healthcare and Life Sciences on the integration of HL7 FHIR with Azure. He was the first to implement FHIR using Microsoft BizTalk Server.

Howard has co-authored three books on BizTalk Server. He also maintains a blog, The Azure DocumentDB  and publishes a Daily newspaper Healthcare Integration

He has also spoke few times in Integration User Group – Integration Monday.

It’s really great to have him as one of the reviewer of our book– Robust Cloud Integration with Azure. Now that he is in the reviewer team of our book, I asked him to share his thoughts on the following couple of questions about the book.

1. What do you think about the outline of the book?

The outline is very thorough.  The biggest issue is trying to keep up with the constant updates and new functionality on Azure.Many of the products and service available in Azure today are in preview.

2. What is your expectation from the book or how do you think this book would be valuable for its reader’s time and money?

The most difficult task is to provide content that is not publicly available on the Azure site or a blog.  Every topic requires at least one good tutorial.

Glenn Colpaert is an Integration Consultant and Microsoft Azure MVP at Codit.

He believes its shame to let his learning, experiences, POCs / demos, sit there with no purpose. So he often share his learning and experience with the community by writing a blog post or giving a talk on that subject.

Glenn is also part of the Microsoft Azure Insider program as well as the BizTalk Advisors group.

He became a board member of BTUG.be, the Belgian BizTalk User Group and is an active blogger on the Codit Blog.

He has also spoke couple of times in Integration User Group – Integration Monday.

He has also created a video for Microsoft Channel 9 about Microsoft Cloud Integration and SAP.

He was the first who showed keen interest for reviewing the book after reading the blog post. Here is his thought on the following couple of questions about the book.

1. What do you think about the outline of the book?

After reading the announcement blog post about the robust integration book I reached out to the team behind it and asked if they could use some help with the review of the book. The outline of the book immediately triggered my interest as it tried the cover the broad spectrum of the current integration landscape without losing sight of what’s coming next within the integration space..

2. What is your expectation from the book or how do you think this book would be valuable for its reader’s time and money?

The team behind robust integration is setting some high expectations as they try to cover all important areas of modern/hybrid Integration. Covering the broad spectrum from Logic Apps over API Management to Hybrid Integration with BizTalk Server 2016, this book will definitely will be a must read for all people involved or interested in the current and to be integration landscape.

 

I welcome both Howard and Glenn to our book reviewer team.
