Borland Software is to deepen its support for Microsoft with the launch of Borland Together Edition for Visual Studio .Net, an integrated design, modeling and code environment for the .Net framework.

As the culmination of over a years worth of R&D, the new environment is designed to assist organisations in the adoption of Microsoft technologies. It also marks the latest advancement of the Borland Application Lifecycle Management offering for .Net.

"We are bringing agile design and modeling to the desktop and are offering capabilities that were previously unavailable," says Tony de la Lama, vice president & general manager of Together Solutions at Borland.

"Our technology and approach to modeling is already widely recognized for reducing the complexities of application design and collaboration in the enterprise Java space. There has been broad interest for a similar offering to exist for the Microsoft .Net framework and we are delighted to comply," he adds.

According to Gartner Group, the.Net framework is gaining broad traction in next generation e-business solutions, such as web, mobile and consumer facing applications. The architecture is particularly appropriate for companies with heavy Microsoft investments and commitments to the Redmond giant's technologies and products.

"Together Edition for Microsoft Visual Studio .Net offers advanced design and modeling capabilities for Visual Studio .Net 2003," says Marie Huwe, general manager for the developer & platform evangelism division at Microsoft.

"Together Edition for Microsoft Visual Studio .Net delivers a compelling modeling environment for enterprise customers focused on productivity, quality, software asset reuse and team collaboration," he adds.
