    Server Orchestration Designer for Business Analysts


The
Orchestration Designer for business analysts is a
Visio
based tool that may be installed independently from BizTalk Server.  Business
analysts can draw abstract business process in this tool and hand-off those business
processes to the developer for implementation.  This tool also allows business
analysts to import orchestration diagrams into
Visio
for documentation and viewing.  This tool requires the
.NET
framework and a pre-existing copy of either
Visio
XP or
Visio
2003.
