Telerik Extends Free Pricing to All Database Platforms
WALTHAM, MA, June 28, 2012 – Telerik, an end-to-end provider of software application lifecycle and content management solutions, today announced a change in pricing for its object relational mapping tool, OpenAccess ORM, now offering the tool free of charge beyond Microsoft databases and to all 12 database platforms it supports, such as SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL and PostgreSQL. Telerik will continue to enhance OpenAccess ORM with regular releases, and will still offer clients its industry-leading dedicated support via the company’s Premium and Ultimate Collection bundles.
OpenAccess ORM is a powerful framework for mapping the objects in an object-oriented domain model to one’s relational database tables, views, and/or stored procedures, and vice versa. Mapping is done within Visual Studio and is independent from source code and database. Operating as a datastore-agnostic virtual layer, OpenAccess ORM can be used from within the programming language to access and manipulate data.
The Telerik ORM tool works equally well in all .NET platforms: ASP.NET, AJAX, MVC, Silverlight, WPF, Windows Forms, and Azure. The enterprise-grade ORM for .NET was recently updated to include a new Web Services Wizard that now easily exposes the application data to client applications using various web services, without having developers write a single line of code.
Telerik OpenAccess ORM takes over the mundane tasks of generating the data access code for an application, effectively relieving users from a significant portion of their relational data persistence tasks. The generated code has been tested extensively by Telerik and conforms to the latest object-oriented development standards. By doing the heavy lifting for customers, OpenAccess ORM can save users between 20% and 85% of development and testing time.

Our end-to-end platform uniquely combines industry-leading UI tools with cloud services to simplify the entire app development lifecycle.
