We are very excited to announce that Telerik has expanded into the ORM marketplace with the acquisition of Vanatec, a German-based company. Vanatec has developed a remarkable ORM product since its inception in 2005. As they join the Telerik fold, you can expect to see OpenAccess grow with new and advanced features in releases to come, including improved LINQ support and tight integration with existing Telerik controls. OpenAccess ORM will be officially available as a standalone product or a part of the Telerik Premium Collection in early November as a part of the Q3 2008 release. With the addition of this new ORM tool, Telerik makes a large step forward to becoming a one-stop solution for all .NET development needs. I encourage you to visit the web site to learn more about this exciting new tool in the Telerik arsenal.
