An article on TheServerSide.NET recently highlighted Configuresoft's usage of Visual Studio Team Edition for Database Professionals and the benefits they realized by doing so. If you haven’t read it already, here are a couple quotes to whet your appetite:

  • “Sometimes when you think about C# or Visual Basic, the database is an afterthought. [Visual Studio Team 2005 Edition for Database Professionals] makes the database developer a first class citizen, and now the developers have a single platform to work with."
  • Malone said this major initiative would have taken 18 to 24 months to develop using a traditional development process and tools. Visual Studio Team 2005 Edition for Database Professionals enabled a release of the new product in only 12 months.

Good stuff!
