As organizations today face increased pressure to build, deliver and run applications across a variety of devices and deployment scenarios, Zander, corporate vice president of Visual Studio, announced Microsoft's vision for ALM in the next version of Visual Studio.
Zander described how Microsoft's ALM offering builds on the strong track record of previous Visual Studio releases, and helps improve the flow of information between key stakeholders involved in planning, building and managing applications.
Zander also demonstrated a connector that links Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 and Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010 to improve the interaction between the development and operations teams. The connector enables an operations team to send application performance monitoring and diagnostic information immediately to the engineering team.
Microsoft delivered a community technology preview of the new connector today, available for download at Microsoft Connect.
