Now that COVID-19 has completely derailed any strategy and subsequent plan to achieve Q1 goals and we are all continuing to adjust to the ‘new normal,’ we’re thrilled to present our curated list of Tallan’s top viewed blog posts of 2019.
It’s no surprise that the top two posts are both about developing in an Azure environment. Microsoft Azure was awarded a highly sought after contract from the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) in October of last year. You can read the statement published by the DOD here.
Importantly noted in the statement, is that the DOD has not aligned with any one vendor or provider for their cloud strategy efforts, “Today the Department of Defense has taken another step forward in the implementation of our Cloud Strategy with the award of an enterprise general-purpose cloud contract to Microsoft. This continues our strategy of a multi-vendor, multi-cloud environment as the department’s needs are diverse and cannot be met by any single supplier.”
The second two posts are, ironically, much more niche in nature. Tutorials, or lists are easily consumed and thus highly read, but topics like custom development and coding languages, or specifically BizTalk aren’t as widely discussed as larger technical platforms or services. Numbers 3 and 4 of 2019’s top viewed posts are:
- Getting Started Processing and Converting the Quill JS Delta Format
- Use BizTalk XML Polling to Pull SQL Server Generated XML
The final most viewed blog post published on blog.tallan.com in 2019 was industry focused, mortgage lending to be specific. This piece was written based on a project we’d completed for a mortgage lending bank, who had made the leap to the cloud. Thanks to the innovative minds driving their business forward, this company ended up running their business at a significantly leaner capacity, while ultimately closing the same amount of business. The fifth most viewed post from Tallan’s 2019 archive is:
