Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate is the comprehensive suite of application lifecycle management tools for teams to ensure quality results, from design to deployment. Whether you’re creating new solutions or enhancing existing applications, Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate lets you bring your vision to life targeting an increasing number of platforms and technologies—including cloud and parallel computing.

· Elimate ‘no repro’ with IntelliTrace: The new IntelliTrace® feature guarantees developers can always reproduce reported bugs.

· New architecture tools: Architecture Explorer and Architectural Validation can help you understand the architectural intent of a system faster and expose errant interactions.

· Be proactive about Agile project management: Remain productive and react to potential risks before they happen by using project reports that are automatically generated.

Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate also includes Visual Studio Test Professional 2010. Whether eliminating licensing on an alternative testing product or eliminating the cannot repro a bug problem, the new testing tools are a big deal and were designed to enable your developers and testers to work together more effectively. Key benefits are:

· File rich, actionable bugs: Automatically capture extensible and rich diagnostic information like IntelliTrace® logs, indexed videos, and screenshots for each new bug.

· Collaborate effectively: Access user stories and requirements easily through Team Explorer and trace them from birth through release.

· More test coverage: Automate repetitive tasks and discover complex bugs through Exploratory Testing.
