Microsoft to acquire SourceGear’s Teamprise assets

To enable developers build applications with Visual Studio Team Foundation Server

By CBR Staff Writer

Microsoft said that it will purchase the Teamprise-related assets of SourceGear, which enables developers using the Eclipse IDE or operating on multiple operating systems, including Unix and Linux, to build applications with Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server.

The company claims that the development organisations will benefit from reduced time and complexity associated with application development tasks. The functionality of the Teamprise suite will be integrated into the Visual Studio product line beginning with Visual Studio 2010.

Somasegar, senior vice president of Microsoft, said: “We know our customers face daily challenges with management, collaboration and development in heterogeneous environments.

“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.”

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, the company said.

According to Microsoft, the Teamprise Client Suite includes Teamprise Plug-in for Eclipse that allows developers to perform all their source control, bug tracking, build and reporting operations from within Eclipse and Eclipse-based integrated development environments (IDEs); and Teamprise Explorer using the Teamprise Plug-in into a cross-platform graphical user interface (GUI) application.

In addition, the suite also includes, Teamprise Command-Line Client that provides a cross-platform, nongraphical interface to Team Foundation Server.

Corey Steffen, general manager at Teamprise, said: “For nearly four years, we have made it our mission to deliver strong, best-of-breed tools to our customers for cross-platform development. By joining forces with Microsoft, we see an opportunity to further our mission and customers’ benefits by fostering joint innovation between Teamprise solutions and Team Foundation Server.”
