The application development team at Lansforsakringar AB, a Swedish insurance and banking company, wanted to simplify and speed software development. The team's customers relied on it for specialized applications. However, the team was using manual development methods that slowed delivery. To improve application lifecycle management, Lansforsakringar decided to adopt Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 along with iterative development techniques. The company is using built-in agile planning tools and a virtual test laboratory with automated builds and deployment. It also looks forward to using the IntelliTrace debugging tool to find and resolve bugs more easily. Now, the team can keep projects on track, and Lansforsakringar expects to cut development time and costs by 20 percent.
