ATLANTA, Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- VersionOne, recognized by Agile practitioners as the leader in Agile project management tools, announced at the Agile 2008 conference the immediate availability of an open source integration between its V1: Agile project management tools and Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2008.

ATLANTA, Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ — VersionOne, recognized by Agile practitioners as the leader in Agile project management tools, announced at the Agile 2008 conference the immediate availability of an open source integration between its V1: Agile project management tools and Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2008.

VersionOne's integration with Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2008 delivers a 100% Microsoft.NET Framework-based solution for agile development teams of all sizes. By combining VersionOne's Agile planning and management tools with Microsoft's Visual Studio Team System platform, teams benefit from a scalable Agile Application Lifecycle Management (Agile ALM) solution.

"The combination of VersionOne with Visual Studio Team System is great news for our developers," said Terry Clancy, Product Manager, Developer Division Microsoft Corp. "Through support for the Visual Studio development environment, VersionOne is helping .NET Framework-based development teams seamlessly incorporate an Agile development workflow and project management tool into their existing infrastructure."

Teams with an investment in Visual Studio Team System now have a zero cost way to leverage this investment. At the same time, teams will benefit from VersionOne's lightweight workflow tool, the most widely deployed Agile planning and management tool in the industry. Currently VersionOne provides an open source plug-in for the Visual Studio IDE, which allows developers working in Visual Studio to view and update their work within the VersionOne tool without ever leaving the IDE. With this integration all team members, using VersionOne, have visibility into summary information about source code check-ins and build runs along with a link to detailed information within TFS.

"Many of today's leading technology organizations have invested heavily in the Microsoft source and build management tools and are looking to make optimal use of their investment as they transition to Agile methodologies," says Robert Holler, CEO of VersionOne. "Our free, open source offering with support for Visual Studio Team System offers companies a no cost, no risk path to a web-based agile development management system that can both meet their current needs as well as grow with them over time. As a result, teams are able to incrementally scale their Agile efforts while working with their Microsoft platform investment."

Availability and Pricing

VersionOne provides all tool integrations as free, open-source software via the VersionOne Community Site ( http://community.versionone.com/downloads/default.aspx ). Interested customers and partners can download the source code to further customize integrations for their unique environment.
