Are your Developers Managing your Projects with TFS (with proven Agile/Scrum and ALM Strategies)?

Team Foundation Server is the fully integrated solution to manage projects, giving developers, testers and management a single source of truth for all project needs.

Project Managers and stakeholders will love:

  • TFS's integration with code/SQL/SharePoint which provides a dashboard with project reports, giving them greater visibility of the project status and burn down lists
  • The easily customization of the data using Excel Web Services

Developers will love:

  • TFS 2010 for the SQL and SharePoint Server Explorer and the integration of viewing, creating and deploying
  • That they don't have to try to interpret a bug report from a tester, and then they have to reproduce it. Why? Because of Intellitrace, which allows you to double click and open to the exact line of code with the variables set.
  • Seamless source control
  • No waiting for compiling and tests to run. The integration with the build server (continuous integration) is the biggest productivity boost you can give a developer
  • SharePoint Wiki

Testers will love:

  • The many ways of automating their manual tests via:

    • Web tests
    • Performance tests
    • And the jewel in the crown, Coded UI Tests
  • The fact they never have to spend time reproducing a bug before documenting it
  • And it gets better, they don't have to document it because testing tools recorded what they did
  • Later on, when they decide to go with Lab Manager they will never spend time setting up that special environment (say running windows 95 and IE6)
