Microsoft to acquire Teamprise

 

Solutions to ease Visual Studio developer woes.

Microsoft said today that it plans to buy the Teamprise-related assets of SourceGear.

Teamprise lets developers using Eclipse IDE, or those running multiple operating systems, build apps with Microsoft's Visual Studio Team Foundation Server, using a single tool.

Microsoft expects these developers to benefit from inproved integration and reduced time to market.

The firm said that functionality from the Teamprise Client Suite will be integrated into the Visual Studio product line, starting with Visual Studio 2010.

“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,” said S. Somasegar, senior vice president of the Developer Division at Microsoft.

“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.”

Teamprise said that its customers would see improvements in the tools that it offers.

“For nearly four years, we have made it our mission to deliver strong, best-of-breed tools to our customers for cross-platform development,” explained Corey Steffen, general manager of SourceGear's Teamprise division.

“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.”

The firms added that joint solutions would help developers overcome core development issues, and let them work on any platforms in a heterogenerous environment.
