An announcement made at TechEd today stated that
“An alliance with IBM that will further simplify application development for
enterprise teams working in heterogeneous environments. IBM and Microsoft have agreed to work together to integrate IBM DB2 database access with Visual Studio Team System 2008 Database Edition.“
This is great news for me as many clients have mixed database environments in production. Now if they can just get Oracle on board we’ll have the big 3 in the fold.
