Unreal Speed Made Real
Integrate test and accelerate delivery.
Quality software delivered faster takes a team—it takes true integration of testing and quality assurance with development, project management, and IT. Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 revolutionizes the development environment with fully integrated tools that allow developers and testers to truly collaborate—early and often.
We all know that custom software development drives value in multiple ways:
- Organizational efficiencies, by allowing widespread replication of critical business processes
- Competitive advantage, by allowing new ways of engaging customers and doing business
- Strategic advantage, by supporting disruptive innovations in the market
Yet, custom development is inherently “custom”—otherwise you would buy instead of making, and with that comes uncertainty and difficulties in providing leadership with visibility into timelines, delivery status, quality, resource constraints, and a myriad of other factors that are critical to managing investments in the business.
Microsoft built the Visual Studio 2010 family of products to directly tackle these issues and begin de-risking the process of delivering business value with custom software development. The result? Developers and testers can now truly collaborate; teams can deliver software projects faster; organizations have real-time visibility into project status, timelines, and metrics that allow them to see and proactively address potential issues earlier. The net result is an increase in productivity, efficiency, and predictability—and, ultimately, speed-to-market with a quality solution.
Sound too good to be true? To be fair, it takes an investment and commitment to improvement, a focus on implementing repeatable processes, and the right tools to support your testers, developers, project managers, business analysts, and all the other stakeholders that contribute to driving your business forward with the support of custom software development. However, the rewards are unreal.
