BizTalk Server Intelligence pack
Create an Intelligence pack for BizTalk Server, something similar to BizTalk Server 2013 Monitoring Management Pack:
- Application Views
- Application Artifacts Views
- Deployment Views
- BAM Component Views
- BAM Alerts
As a MS partner company we have several customers very interested in this feature!!
No current plans for BizTalk Support, however this is something in our teams backlog and will revisit it in the future. Thank you

I think IaaS Biztalk within Azure and on-premise would be ideal. Something which can mimic the SCOM pack and possibly looking at working with Biztalk360 or other monitoring solution packs which are as fully featured.
The BizTalk community whilst small is very passionate and the suggestion has most likely resonated with various MS partners, BizTalk MVPs and developers around the world who follow BizTalk blogs and Tweets.
The intelligence pack would be a fantastic value proposition for Azure Operational Insights as none of the other competing platforms offer this level of monitoring and alerting for BizTalk. To answer the question, this suggestion is for BizTalk on premise or running in an Azure VM as opposed to Azure BizTalk services.

I briefly looked at the BizTalk 2013 MP here http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=39617
You have an opportunity to do what I described in this blog post http://blogs.msdn.com/b/dmuscett/archive/2014/11/05/iis-mp-event-alerting-rules-s-opinsights-searches-equivalents.aspx and extract some of those rules, and build the search equivalents (typically much smaller/readable one-liner, rather than a large XML fragment - here my goal is to drastically simplify intelligence/knowledge authoring compared to SCOM).
As we introduce more data sources (i.e. performance counters http://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-azure-operational-insights/suggestions/6519061-collect-custom-windows-performance-counters ) a lot more scenarios will be possible (there are a lot of perf collection rules and rmonitors based on perf counters in that MP).
Some of those other technology-related IP's (i.e. SQL Assessment) are not around real-time monitoring of those workloads, at this stage - they currently are periodic assessment of health and risk based on Microsoft support best practices.
Currently, for a more 'stateful' and reactive type of monitoring that brings the best of both worlds, you can try the 'Alert Management' IP - http://blogs.technet.com/b/momteam/archive/2014/11/12/manage-your-operations-manager-alerts-from-azure-operational-insight-with-the-new-alert-management-intelligence-pack.aspx - have you considered just using SCOM with the BizTalk MP and triage your alerts in OpInsights (soon even on your mobile phone) ?
