Managing Business Activity Monitoring
Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) empowers business users by providing real-time access to critical business performance indicators. Business users can use this information to improve the speed and effectiveness of business operations. BAM collects the business activity information in a real-time, transaction-consistent way regardless of the complexity of a heterogeneous environment.
Important Information about using the BAM Excel templates and Business Activity Services Microsoft® Windows® SharePoint® Services collaboration site is included in a separate Help file for end users. You can access the help file on the BizTalk Server 2004 CD at \Msi\Common Files\STSDIR\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\Msi\Common Files\STSDIR\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\1033\BAS\Documentation\KW_User_Guide.chm.
