Microsoft Acquires Teamprise Assets
Development organizations will benefit from increased integration in heterogeneous environments, as well as reduced time and complexity associated with application development tasks. Functionality from the Teamprise client suite will be integrated into the Visual Studio product line beginning with Visual Studio 2010.
According to Microsoft, Team Foundation server, in combination with the Teamprise client suite technologies, will enable developers to use a single tool to overcome core development challenges, including version control, work-item tracking, build management, process guidance and business intelligence, regardless of the core platform in use.
With the simplification of these important processes, developers will now be able to spend more time focusing on developing high-quality, creative applications.
Somasegar, senior vice president of the developer division at Microsoft, said: “We know our customers face daily challenges with management, collaboration and development in heterogeneous environments. The industry must take steps to make interoperability a stronger business asset for our customers, with the acquisition of the Teamprise assets, we’re taking a step forward on this journey, providing customers with a viable cross-platform development solution that will help produce business results more quickly.”
