Attix5 eases multi-platform integration challenges with Microsoft South Africa

By admin, 12 grudnia, 2013, No Comment

To conjoin its most critical development and support tools into a unified platform, Attix5, a data protection and security provider, has implemented Microsoft’s Team Foundation Server (TFS) technology and its supporting platforms.

Historically, the company had relied heavily on an array of solutions to administer core elements such as source control, requirements tracking and bug tracking, but the evolving cross-platform nature of the organisation’s products and projects demanded a more integrated approach.

“We looked a various alternatives and after a thorough investigative process identified Microsoft technologies as the most effective answer to the challenge of our internal integration,” says Theodor Kleynhans, General Manager of Development, Microsoft South Africa.

Microsoft’s TFS is a collaborative platform that sits at the core of Microsoft’s application lifecycle solutions by supporting multiple development practices, Integrated Development Environments (IDE) and platforms both locally or within the cloud.

This, Kleynhans says, was best complimented by Microsoft Team Explorer Everywhere (TEE), which provides the tools and plug-ins required to access TFS from Eclipse-based environments and non-Windows platforms.

Kleynhans adds that Microsoft Visual Studio (VS), an IDE was flagged as the de facto solution to create custom graphical interfaces for websites, web applications and other services in native and managed code for platforms supported by Microsoft Windows, Windows Mobile, Windows CE, .NET Framework, .NET Compact Framework and Microsoft Silverlight.

The benefits associated with Attix5′s decision to implement Microsoft TFS and its supporting platforms have been considerable, cites Kleynhans.

“Our developers, testers and product managers are really pleased with the web interface and version control that TFS offers. It has taken some time to create custom scripts that integrate with our development tools but the platform is now working smoothly and has certainly enhanced our productivity as an organisation,” he adds.

Microsoft’s TEE and VS has only served to augment this integration, says Kleynhans.

“Software development and IT management environments require essential tools in order to achieve production targets and identify potential difficulties. These solutions have really plugged in to our internal infrastructure. They complement TFS well and have simplified the development and support process the development and support process considerably,” he concludes.
