A true test of a development environment's worth is in how well it benefits ISVs in reducing complexity, cutting costs, and in helping them remain competitive in fast-moving markets. To better understand the impact of Eclipse on ISVs, Interarbor Solutions analyst Dana Gardner moderates a sponsored podcast discussion with Damion Heredia, director of product management at Lombardi, and Maher Masri, president and co-founder of Genuitec. These two ISVs have much different customers -- Lombardi is a business process management (BPM) solutions provider and the maker of the TeamWorks suites, while Genuitec serves the developers within ISVs with its popular MyEclipse Enterprise Workbench productivity tools. Yet both companies are clearly benefitting from the community-based, open source efficiencies of Eclipse. Learn more about why they see an escalating productivity boost from Eclipse 3.2, how Eclipse and Microsoft .NET play well together, and how the Eclipse Rich Client Platform may further simplify ISV choices and costs in the future.
