Company’s holistic TeamPulse solution addresses agile project management needs
Waltham, MA, April 12, 2010 – Telerik, a leading provider of development tools and solutions for the Microsoft .NET platform, today announced the launch of TeamPulse, an integrated suite of agile scheduling and planning tools for Microsoft’s team collaboration platform, Team Foundation Server (TFS). The first version of TeamPulse is available to users immediately in Beta, and is scheduled for commercial launch in July 2010.
Developed collaboratively with consulting, training, and mentoring firm, Imaginet Resources Corp., TeamPulse enables software teams to effectively plan and measure results and continually improve their delivery process by combining agile and lean best practices with the power of TFS. The product focuses on addressing agile project management needs on a team-wide rather than individual basis.
“Many project management tools currently concentrate on individual roles rather than seeing teams as a single cohesive unit,” said Vassil Terziev, Telerik CEO. “Our primary goal is to bridge that communication gap between team members and different teams and get them facing in the same direction to achieve greater success. TFS and TeamPulse together represent the best in construction management and planning tools; together, they cover every aspect of application lifecycle management, from ideas to real-world results.”
TeamPulse enables teams to turn bright ideas into successful software projects, while minimizing waste and eliminating friction during the project lifecycle. The product adds significant value to TFS by providing an integrated set of highly intuitive visual tools and innovative functionality, such as user stories management, iteration planning, and scheduling, facilitating holistic team engagement in the decision-making process. TeamPulse features real-time analytics and data coming from TFS, providing an instant snapshot of project health and up-to-the-minute information on individual and team progress. However, its flexible architecture also allows planning to be done discretely without impacting or affecting ongoing TFS processes.
”TeamPulse provides users with a rich and responsive user experience, focusing on maintaining a natural flow of action,” said Joel Semeniuk, Imaginet Resources CEO. “Rich information visualization is foundational to TeamPulse, leveraging the power of Telerik’s Silverlight 4 controls to represent information in a way that communicates the most amount of information to help teams make the best decisions and ultimately reduce waste.”
TeamPulse will make its official debut during DevConnections 2010, April 12 – 14, 2010, at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. A DevConnections 2010 Platinum Sponsor, Telerik will be hosting an exhibit, including TeamPulse demos, at booth #501 on the conference floor. Additionally, as a TechEd India sponsor and exhibitor, the company can be found at booth (##), April 12-14, 2010 in Bangalore, India, and in booth #21 at the Great Indian Developer Summit, April 20-23, in Bangalore, India.
