When Apps Need to Be Delivered Better, Faster & Cheaper, Visual Studio Can Help

By Martin Schaeferle

Application development is the foundation of any successful business. And the prevailing mantra among developers is to bring a product to market "better, faster, and cheaper" than the competition.In many ways, the company lives and dies by how they roll out applications. If an application is delayed or goes over-budget, the firm misses out on lucrative opportunities.

Yet if the application is rushed, the business runs the risk of encountering high-profile bugs or security failures.The trick, therefore, is to drive business value through a systematic project management process that is built on strong governance principles and tools to support collaboration and efficiency. That latter piece is where tools like Visual Studio 2010 can be extremely valuable in optimizing the application lifecycle.

Our Visual Studio tutorial videos are a great first step for mastering this important technology that can, over time, help you directly deliver value to your team.
