Microsoft Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server 2010 allow teams to manage the full lifecycle of an application from requirements, architecture and design through to coding, version control, testing, release management, and ongoing maintenance. With over 16 years experience and expertise in all of these areas of application lifecycle management (ALM), Equinox IT has now achieved New Zealand’s first Microsoft ALM Competency Partner status.

Equinox IT team members are certified to install, configure and administer Microsoft Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server 2010, and they offer a range of additional services to assist organisations to get the most value from adopting an integrated approach to managing the application lifecycle. Working with Australian-based Microsoft MVP Anthony Borton from Enhance ALM, Equinox IT also delivers Visual Studio ALM training in New Zealand, with courses suitable for all team members including project managers, developers and testers.

Equinox IT, along with Microsoft, is actively supporting through sponsorship and speakers the upcoming New Zealand Visual Studio ALM Conference being held in Wellington on 6 and 7 April 2010.
