Accenture boosting Microsoft .NET with developer tools

Quick to jump on the .NET bandwagon, Accenture will announce next Monday a toolkit to help corporate users quickly develop and deploy applications that take advantage of Microsoft's .NET Enterprise Server platform.

To be announced at Microsoft's Tech Ed developer conference in Atlanta, the starter toolkit contains application frameworks, developer guides tools, and training modules. The various pieces of the toolkit are all shaped based on the company's experience of working with large accounts in creating architectures that exploit .NET.

"Based on out experience, .NET simplifies the development of Internet applications. We think the work we are doing now allows us to quickly implement enterprise-wide solutions based around .NET," said Karl Newkirk, managing partner of Accenture's Microsoft solutions group in New York.

Contained in the kit is a repeatable process for building component-based Web applications that enable a company to train its developers to build .NET applications and to leverage their abilities across a range of projects.

Also in the kit is a set of reuseable technical architecture components that extend out the core capabilities of the .NET Framework and VisualStudio.NET. It also has a series of intelligent frameworks, coding shells, and code generation utilities that help hasten the building process.

"Enterprise-level systems today demand enterprise-level scaling and component-based Web applications. Together we think we can deliver those kinds of solutions with Microsoft .NET," said David Mendlen, Microsoft's lead product manager for VisualStudio .NET.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
