Instead of trying to archive everything I want at once, what will probably take me long time, I decided to publish another version of my Microsoft Integration Stencils Pack with an additional of 80 new shapes and some reorganization. With these new additions, this package now contains an astounding total of ~911 shapes (symbols/icons) that will help you visually represent Integration architectures (On-premise, Cloud or Hybrid scenarios) and solutions diagrams in Visio 2016/2013. It will provide symbols/icons to visually represent features, systems, processes and architectures that use BizTalk Server, Microsoft Azure and related technologies.

The Microsoft Integration Stencils Pack v2.3 is composed by 8 files:

  • Microsoft Integration Stencils v2.3 (406 Shapes)
  • MIS Apps and Systems Logo Stencils v2.3 (109 shapes)
  • MIS IoT Devices Stencils v2.3 (131 shapes)
  • MIS Support Stencils v2.3 (108 shapes)
  • MIS Servers and Hardware v2.3 (45 shapes)
  • MIS Originals v2.3 (42 shapes)
  • MIS Users v2.3 (40 shapes)
  • MIS Devices v2.3 (30 shapes)

If you are wonder where is v2.2? yes I skipped one version, version 2.2 was a private version Smile.

These are some of the new shapes you can find in this new version:

Because yesterday Portugal was European Champion I decide today to give a gift to the community by making an earlier release of my Microsoft Integration Stencils Pack.

After the major release in June 16, I started to realize that with so many stencils it was becoming a little hard to find, or rather, I was spending too much time to find some representations that I wanted to use in my diagrams. Don’t get me wrong, I will continue to add new stencils and I already did in this release, however, the major improvement that I’m trying to make is to divide the Stencils in different files for a better organization.

With these new additions, this package now contains an astounding total of ~831 (~100 additions) (symbols/icons) that will help you visually represent Integration architectures (On-premise, Cloud or Hybrid scenarios) and solutions diagrams in Visio 2016/2013. It will provide symbols/icons to visually represent features, systems, processes and architectures that use BizTalk Server, Microsoft Azure and related technologies.

    • Machine Learning, Stream Analytics, Data Factory, Data Pipelines
    • and so on
  • PowerBI
  • PowerShell
  • And many more…

Divided in 8 files to be easier to maintain and find the right shapes:

  • Microsoft Integration Stencils v2.0 (420 shapes)
  • MIS Apps and Systems Logo Stencils (69 shapes)
  • MIS IoT Devices Stencils (123 shapes)
  • MIS Support Stencils (101 shapes)
  • MIS Servers and Hardware v2.1 (39 shapes)
  • MIS Originals v2.1 (22 shapes)
  • MIS Users (27 shapes)

Finally, I found some extra minutes to be able to write and after spending all my available free time over the last few weeks, mainly in researching but also in creating several ones… I’m happy to say that a major version, 360 new shapes – that is the double of the previous version, of Microsoft Integration Stencils Pack for Visio 2016/2013 is now available for you to download.

With these new additions, this package now contains an astounding total of 721 shapes (symbols/icons) that will help you visually represent Integration architectures (On-premise, Cloud or Hybrid scenarios) and solutions diagrams in Visio 2016/2013. It will provide symbols/icons to visually represent features, systems, processes and architectures that use BizTalk Server, Microsoft Azure and related technologies.

With so many new shapes, I decide to divide the package in 4 files to be easier to maintain and find the right shapes:

  • Microsoft Integration Stencils v2.0 (416 shapes)
  • MIS Apps and Systems Logo Stencils (60 shapes)
  • MIS IoT Devices Stencils (123 shapes)
  • MIS Support Stencils (122 shapes)

Requested by several community member I added two special shapes:

  • The infamous T-Rex
  • and “The Chicken Way”

That you can use and resize without losing quality.

Again, I didn’t create all of this shapes, maybe half of them, the other half was the work of gathering all the available resources and combine them together, for example, if you’re looking for more or official Azure Visio stencils, then you can find them here: Microsoft Azure, Cloud and Enterprise Symbol / Icon Set – Visio stencil, PowerPoint, PNG.

There are still many points that could be improved as well as adding new stencils but I hope you like the final result.

Last Monday I presented a session about “Microsoft Azure Logic Apps” at Microsoft WebCamp Lisbon event and I’m happy to announce that the webcast of my session is now available online in Channel 9!

Microsoft-Azure-Logic-Apps-channel9-webcast

This session was an introduction to the new Azure Integration features: Logic Apps and also a glimpse about API Apps. They are still in preview but this session attempts to address how can we get start using these new features, explain how you can use Azure Logic Apps to automate business processes without using code, demonstrating the new graphical designer and how to take advantage of different Logic App capabilities for your scenarios.

I will also explain how you can take advantages of different Azure features like Event Hub and Stream Analytics to add Insights and Telemetry to your Logic Apps through Power BI.

After some requests from the community, I decided to update my Microsoft Integration Stencils for Visio 2013 stencils with an additional of 60 new shapes, making ate the moment a total of 361 shapes that will help you to visually represent Integration architectures and solutions diagrams in a simple and beautiful way.

Some of the shapes added in this release:

That you can use and resize without losing quality, in particular the new shapes.

Again, I didn’t create all of this shapes, only a few of them, the rest it was one the work of gathering some resources and combine them together. There are still many points that could be improved as well as adding new stencils.

I realized that I forgot to add some shapes, or I hadn’t addressed certain features/functionalities, so I decided to make an upgrade to my Microsoft Integration Stencils for Visio 2013 resource, that I published 10 days ago, adding this time 43 new shapes – in a total of 301 symbols/icons that will help you to visually represent Integration architectures and solutions diagrams.

Last shapes added:

  • Transformation patterns (Direct Translation Pattern, Data Translation Pattern, Content Enricher Pattern, Aggregator Pattern, Content Filter Pattern, Splitter Pattern, Grouping Pattern, Sorting Pattern, Conditional Pattern, Looping Pattern, Canonical Data Model Pattern, Name-Value Transformation Pattern, …)

In my two previous editions (here and here) I published some shapes to represent BizTalk Server physical architectures, Integration architectures (Cloud or Hybrid scenarios) or solutions.

In this resource I change the name of my Visio 2013 Stencils resource, now is called “Microsoft Integration Stencils for Visio 2013”, to include almost the Microsoft Integration Stack.

This package contains a set of symbols/icons (258 shapes) to that will help you visually represent Integration architectures (On-premise, Cloud or Hybrid scenarios) and solutions diagrams in Visio 2013. It will provide symbols/icons to visually represent features, systems, processes and architectures that use BizTalk Server, Microsoft Azure and related technologies.

For the BizTalk Server and Microsoft Azure Portuguese Community, will be held on April 25, 2015 – tomorrow – between 9:00 AM – 7:30 PM the Global Azure Bootcamp 2015 – Lisboa at Microsoft Portugal in Lisbon.

In April of 2014 DevScope participated on the second Global Windows Azure Bootcamp, an event held in 138 locations around the globe. This allowed all participants to have a one day deep dive class and get up to speed on developing Cloud Computing Applications for Windows Azure. We were invited as speakers for two sessions in the Lisbon event. In addition to this great learning opportunity, the hands on labs featured launching a huge global compute farm to perform diabetes research using the contributions (processing time) from all participants all over the globe.

During the event our team dedicated a total of 159 of our virtual machines, spread over 5 Azure Datacenters worldwide. The final statistics were recently published and, although not all processing was leveraged, our overall effort is still 38% of all Portuguese contribution.

Overall Statistics for DevScope, Portugal

Total worker role instances: 140
Total targets processed: 1441
Total processing time: 5 days 14 hours 8 minutes.
