Telerik RadControls for Windows 8

Telerik is a market-leading provider of end-to-end solutions for application development, automated testing, agile project management, reporting, run-time analytics, and content management across all major Microsoft .NET development platforms.


Telerik's latest product - EQATEC Application Analytics - is a runtime analytics service which offers a complete picture of app usage across web, desktop and mobile platforms. Developers can monitor mobile, web and desktop applications to understand how users engage with the app, what their demographics are, and what features they use (or don’t use). Application health is monitored by capturing crash reports and exceptions, enabling developers to quickly identify and fix problems. EQATEC Analytics eliminates the guesswork and empowers data-driven development decisions.
