PreEmptive Solutions Announces Microsoft Silverlight 4 Support Including Analytics, Protection and Optimization

DevConnections Conference:

PreEmptive Solutions, a leading provider of solutions to protect, measure and manage application investments, today announced support for Microsoft Silverlight 4, giving designers unprecedented insight into how applications are being used across the enterprise.

With Silverlight 4, developers can deliver engaging, high-quality experiences across browsers, operating systems and smart devices. PreEmptive’s application analytics and security solutions work across these diverse environments, helping to ensure the highest levels of user satisfaction and software quality for Silverlight 4 applications wherever they are deployed.

“Lack of awareness of usability and lack of adoption of user-centered design processes and metrics-based validation mean that most enterprises will be RIA-enabled but ‘ROI blind.’ They won’t know whether they have achieved positive ROI, because they don’t have the processes and tools to capture and analyze objective data about user behavior.” Gartner, Inc. Predicts 2010: Web Technologies Evolve in Multiple Dimensions: Mobile, Social and Real Time, Ray Valdes et al, December 14, 2009.

“Microsoft is pleased Silverlight partner PreEmptive Solutions has invested early in supporting Silverlight and the next-generation application development platform,” said Brian Goldfarb, director of the developer platform group at Microsoft Corp. “Companies like PreEmptive Solutions help developers use their existing skills to create unique experiences that run across many and varied devices.”

PreEmptive Solutions offers the following support for Silverlight 4:

  • Dotfuscator Suite, the commercial edition of Dotfuscator, automatically injects analytics and obfuscates, optimizes and re-signs Silverlight 4 assemblies without any programming or manual editing of XAP files.

    Developers can monitor and measure the applications post-release regardless of delivery platform or form factor.
  • PreEmptive’s support for the Silverlight Analytics Framework enabling analytics to be configured from within Microsoft Expression Blend 4 beta has been extended to support Silverlight 4.

    Analytics can be specified at design or development time and the resulting near real-time usage data can be streamed back to improve both software quality and user experience.
  • Dotfuscator CE, the community edition included with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 (all versions but Express), has been expanded to include feature- and session-level monitoring for Silverlight 4 assemblies.

    Every Visual Studio 2010 user now has Silverlight 4 monitoring readily available as a standard component of his/her Visual Studio 2010 platform.

Pricing for the Dotfuscator Suite for a large development team starts at $10,000 USD. Runtime Intelligence is offered as a service or as an installed option starting at $350 per month for the service. The Dotfuscator Community Edition is offered at no additional fee with Visual Studio 2010 (all editions except Express). The PreEmptive Solutions plug-in for the Silverlight Analytics Framework is available as a component of the framework at no charge.
