ASG-becubic(TM) Enhances Visual Studio's Integrated Environment to Simplify the Entire Development Lifecycle

NAPLES, FL--(Marketwire - April 19, 2010) -  ASG Software Solutions, the originator of ASG's Business Service Portfolio™ (BSP) and a worldwide leader in business solutions for global enterprises, today announced that it has joined the Visual Studio Industry Partner (VSIP) program to closer align ASG-becubic™ with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.

By integrating ASG-becubic with Visual Studio Ultimate, users will be able to spend more time thinking about creative solutions rather than interpreting code. ASG-becubic will extend the rich visualization power of Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate to a broader range of environments, including customized legacy applications and databases. It creates a dependency diagram to understand where to make changes and facilitates comprehensive impact analysis. These integrated solutions lead to improved productivity and simpler development for a growing number of application types in a single, collaborative environment. 

With almost 200 partners, the VSIP program provides technical and marketing support to partners who have integrated their products with Visual Studio.
