hero_team_system In case you’re still on the fence as to whether you want to upgrade your Visual Studio Professional Edition to a Visual Studio Team Edition (Architecture, Development, or Test) or Visual Studio Team Suite, how does saving 30% and 45% off when you step up from Professional Edition with MSDN Premium to either Team Edition or Team Suite respectively sound?

If you go from Professional Edition to Team Edition Developer, you really are getting a lot for you money because you’ll also be getting Team Edition Database as well. With Developer, you get code analysis, unit testing with code coverage, application profiling, and code metrics for helping determine complexity and maintainability. With the Database features, you can refactor your database objects, compare schemas and data within tables, generate repeatable test data, and write unit tests against your SQL stored procedures.

And by getting the Developer Edition now, with VSTS 2010 ships, you’ll be able to use these database features against non-Microsoft database management systems like IBM DB2 and Oracle.

This promotion is for a limited time and ends September 30, 2009. For more information about the promotion, check out:
