CLEVELAND, O hio , and REDMOND, W ash. Sept . 13, 2012 Microsoft Corp. and PreEmptive Solutions announced today that PreEmptive Analytics and Dotfuscator CE will be included in Microsoft Visual Studio 2012. Dotfuscator CE, which has been included with every version of Visual Studio since Visual Studio 2003, prevents the reverse engineering of Microsoft .NET applications and includes basic application monitoring capabilities. The Visual Studio 2012 version, renamed PreEmptive Analytics and Dotfuscator Community Edition™, has been expanded to include exception monitoring and response.

For the first time, a repository and rules engine that aggregates and analyzes incoming exception alerts will be included with Team Foundation Server 2012. When rules are triggered, work items are created or updated, providing near real-time visibility into production.

“We’ve worked closely with our longstanding partner, PreEmptive Solutions, to create high-quality tools that help teams successfully manage the development lifecycle of modern applications,” said Mitra Azizirad, general manager of Developer Tools Marketing and Sales at Microsoft. “Through its integration with Visual Studio 2012 and Team Foundation Server 2012, PreEmptive Analytics quickly connects development and operations teams, improving the operations team’s response time to production incidents and creating a more collaborative development environment.”

“PreEmptive Analytics provides an end-to-end solution connecting development and operations to provide clarity around development priorities, improve application quality and increase operational response,” said Gabriel Torok, CEO of PreEmptive Solutions.

Dotfuscator Software Services Community Edition is scheduled to ship with all versions of Visual Studio 2012 (other than Visual Studio Express) at no additional charge.
