Big- no- HUGE news today. For some time now Telerik has been alluding to a new product line that will be joining the Telerik offering in Q3 of this year, and now the veil is finally lifted! In Q3 2008, Telerik will introduce Telerik OpenAccess ORM. That's right, Telerik is moving beyond UI components to do for data development what we've done for UI development. Telerik OpenAccess ORM, formerly Vanatec OpenAccess, will make process of developing a robust, scalable, datastore-agnostic data layer as easy as building rich, high-performance UIs for ASP.NET, WinForms, WPF, and Silverlight with the RadControls. We know we're not the only game in town for ORMs, but just as we entered the UI component market and corrected the oversights of "incumbent" vendors, we plan to enhance the ORM experience for .NET developers and bring Telerik's trademark service, documentation, and support to .NET ORMs.

We know there are going to be lots of questions after today's announcement, so stay tuned to Telerik Watch and the Telerik.com blogs for lots of additional details in the coming days and weeks leading up to the Q3 release. For now, spread the word and get ready for "more than you expect" in you data development!
