Electric Cloud Speeds Software Build-Test-Deploy Cycle with Direct Integration for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010

Updated add-ins across Electric Cloud's product portfolio enable faster builds and release workflow automation for developers using Visual Studio 2010

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Electric Cloud®, the leading provider of software production management (SPM) solutions, today announced updated add-ins across its product portfolio with support for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.

The new add-ins put fast builds and release workflow automation from ElectricAccelerator® and ElectricCommander® at the fingertips of developers who work with Visual Studio 2010, without requiring them to learn a new user interface or leave their integrated development environment (IDE). Developers can now build eight to ten times faster and enjoy end-to-end build-test-deploy automation. ElectricAccelerator is the only solution for fast, parallel Visual Studio 2010 builds, and ElectricCommander provides fast, frequent feedback on changes. Meanwhile, managers benefit from the centralized release process reporting and organization-wide visibility provided by Electric Cloud's reporting and dashboards.

"For the many developers who spend their days in Visual Studio, the newly enhanced ElectricAccelerator and ElectricCommander add-ins mean faster, more efficient workflow without sacrificing the comfort and ease of working within an IDE they know well," said Usman Muzaffar, vice president of product management for Electric Cloud. "At Electric Cloud we have made it a design priority to minimize disruption and context-switching for developers using our solutions. We believe that the benefits of acceleration and automation are magnified when individual developers can integrate them into their everyday development activities."

The ElectricAccelerator Visual Studio IDE add-in fully integrates with Visual Studio, providing patented dependency management technology to give developers the only tool for fast, parallel Visual Studio 2010 builds. The add-in allows developers to build solutions and projects using the Visual Studio user interface they are already familiar with, while harnessing the power of Electric Make® (eMake) via an ElectricAccelerator menu and toolbar for efficient, simultaneous builds. The ElectricAccelerator Visual Studio add-in includes support for metadata and F# projects, MSBuild and Xbox development, as well as the ability to monitor live builds through ElectricInsight®.

Electric Cloud's enhanced ElectricCommander add-in for Visual Studio also lets developers take advantage of a fully automated build-test-deploy process with fast, frequent feedback on their changes, while working within the Visual Studio user interface. For example, the ElectricCommander add-in for Visual Studio enables developers to initiate pre-flight builds, or builds that validate individual changes without impacting the rest of the team, saving time and preventing costly mistakes, without leaving the Visual Studio UI. In addition, the add-in helps drive the application lifecycle by complementing Visual Studio, providing real-time monitoring of automated jobs and access to downstream development processes such as automated work item updates based on build output.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
