Skelta Software CTO signs TAP agreement

October 15th 2008 Skelta Software, a privately held software company specializing in BPM software software built on cutting edge .NET technology, announced that their CTO, Arvind Agarwal has signed a participating agreement with Microsoft for Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0 framework testing under Microsoft's Technology Adoption Program (TAP)

Arvind heads Skelta's product development, and technical support functions and is responsible for software design and architecture, technical strategy, and product evangelization. A champion of the lasting benefits of BPM, he pioneered the development of Skelta BPM.NET built on cutting edge .NET technology.

As per the TAP initiative, he will participate actively in the pre-releases evaluation of Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 and .Net framework 4.0. Evaluation feedback will take the form of surveys, interviews, artefacts and instrumentation and will heavily influence the final shipping product.

Under Arvind's technical guidance, Skelta will provide a testing ground for both technologies and also commit to enhancing their final versions through evaluation of multiple scenarios as well as deploying the pre-release versions in their own environment.

Signing the agreement for Skelta, CTO Arvind Agarwal said "Becoming a TAP participant means that we will be able to connect with Microsoft expertise on both technologies and get critical support with early adoption. We also look forward to providing our qualified feedback after testing on Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0."

About the TAP initiative

Microsoft's Technology Adoption Program garners technology partner strengths to provide product groups with actionable feedback critical to the production of high-quality, feature-rich software. Information generated from the real world experience of the programs' participants informs and influences how new technologies are marketed by Microsoft.

In return, TAP programs provide participating organizations the opportunity to adopt critical enabling technologies early and shape the final product by providing early and deep feedback.
