Press Release

Microsoft Acquires Teamprise Assets

Provides Cross-Platform Support for Visual Studio

Microsoft Corp. today announced that it will purchase the Teamprise-related assets of SourceGear LLC, which enable developers using the Eclipse IDE or operating on multiple operating systems, including Unix, Linux and Mac OS X, to build applications with Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server. 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.

 

"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."

Today, application development in heterogeneous environments often requires use of multiple, disconnected toolsets and skills for each platform, additional custom work to foster compatibility and extra time to ensure collaboration.

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.

The Teamprise technology will be available in the Visual Studio 2010 wave. Customers will be able to jointly purchase the Teamprise Client Suite technology, updated to work with Team Foundation Server 2010, and one Team Foundation Server client access license. Customers with Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate with MSDN also will receive the Teamprise Client Suite technology as part of their original subscription purchase. SourceGear will continue to provide support for Teamprise products and sell its latest release of the Teamprise Client Suite until the Microsoft solution becomes available. More information about Microsoft and its interoperability efforts for developers is available at http://www.microsoft.com/interop.

Terms of the acquisition are not being disclosed.
