    Are these new Team Productivity products included with your premium Telerik License?

    Thanks

    Hi Matt,

    Thank you for getting in touch with us.

    Currently TeamPulse is not included in the Telerik Premium Collection package. Also, we do not have plans to add the Team Productivity Tools to the Premium suite.

    If you have any additional questions, please let me know.

    Sincerely yours,
    Donna
    the Telerik team

    Hi!

    First, your tools look great and I look forward to test them (I have not been able to get them working yet but I suspect it has to do with the fact that I'm running Win7/64).

    What price range will you put on Team Pulse? Licensing options etc.?

    Just to add more licensing questions to this (yes, a partial thread-hijacking but it seems to fit here)...

    Is TeamPulse going to be licensed on a per user basis, per TFS Project basis, per TFS Collection basis, per team basis, per TFS Server basis, or exactly how will the licenses be distributed? I'm guessing most people have the assumption that it will be per-user but since this is a team tool rather than a developer tool, there is some reason to suspect this could be a little bit different. I'd be happy to hear some about this. :-)

    My beta version has a 60 user liscense...

    Not sure what the count will be on the final relased version.

    PS. Here's the list of what's included in Telerik's two super packages...

    Hello Guys,

    Thank you for the kind words!

    As you may have already noticed TeamPulse is still in Beta and is not yet available for sale. The official release will be in July 2010. We do not have a finally decided price for the product, but once we do, it will be officially announced on our website. As for the licensing scheme, it will be published on telerik.com, as soon as we have an official version.

    Meanwhile, you can take a look at the TeamPulse roadmap to get some insight what is coming up ahead.

    If I can be of any additional assistance, please let me know.
     
    All the best,
    Donna

    IMHO, this product is just noise until the licensing questions are answered. How your tool solves the business problems associated with Agile software development is fundamentally immaterial until the business domain can assess the value proposition associated with adding additional cost to an already expensive IDE [VS2008 TFS]. It seems absurd to me that a company with a strong reputation for producing quality software widgets like Telerik would put a product out in a pre-release state without having the blocking and tackling of the marketing/business side of things buttoned down and published. As soon as Telerik makes their position known, the value proposition will be defined....until that point, there is very little value in the distraction of another tool. Being risk averse, I'm afraid that we will be late adopters, simply because we don't have the infrastructure necessary to have a test instance of TFS running for the sake of evaluating your product. As such, although I appreciate the opportunity to "sneak peek" the product, I'm afraid that there is little benefit in doing so withough having all of the facts necessary to make an informed decision. Perhaps in the 2011 budget year, things will be better...and perhaps by then this product will be vetted by early adopters...until then, I eagerly anticipate having the facts...

    Hello Jim Kinter,

    Thanks for your interest in TeamPulse. One reason we put out the TeamPulse Beta is we wanted to get feedback and direction from the users early in the infant stages of the application so we could react to the requests of the community. There is a recent blog post (link below) that should address some of your other concerns, especially near the end of the blog where pricing and licencing is touched upon.

    Thanks. I'm not sure that I understand how this will work in a non-tfs environment, but that question doesn't really apply for our environment. Either way, this blog post reveals some of the necessary answers and really reveals some of the release plans that I need for planning purposes. Thanks for your help.
    Jim
