Designed from the ground up as a collaboration platform to automate the software development process. Let Team Foundation Server 2010 manage your software development process and facilitate collaboration so that your teams are freed up from mundane non-coding tasks and empowered to unleash their creativity.
Simplicity Through Integration
Tools, processes and project artifacts come together to simplify the collaboration of people across various functional disciplines, helping them work better together and be more productive.
Quality Code Ensured
Monitor quality and progress in real time. Ensure that defects and regressions are discovered at the earliest possible moment with powerful features like build automation and gated check-ins.
Top Ten Benefits
Streamline The Flow of Data Across Your Entire Team
Project artifacts are stored in a central repository that facilitates in-context collaboration to reduce waste in handover time between tasks and streamlines the development process. Team members can instead focus on delivering value over transitioning information between roles. In addition, seamless support for Eclipse extends these collaboration benefits to heterogenous environments.
Reduce Risk with Real-time Visibility
Powerful reporting and dashboards provide historical trending and real-time visibility into overall project health. Real-time metrics give you early warnings of potential problems so you can be proactive and make data-driven decisions and course corrections.
Define, query and report on custom relationships between requirements, work items and test cases. Full traceability lets you track progress and quality back to business goals and customer requirements.
Lightweight Agile Planning Tools
The new Microsoft Excel Agile Planning Workbook makes it easy for teams to adopt agile software developmentmethodologies like SCRUM. Use it to create and manage user stories and product backlog, estimate the team’s velocity, and break the project down into iterations. The Iteration Backlog enables you to plan iterations and track progress.
Project and Portfolio Management
Integration with Microsoft Project and Office ProjectServer enables business stake holders and projectmanagers to gain insight into the health of inflight projects,understand how they support the business needs andhelp identify ways to improve existing processes.
Simplified Installation for Smaller Teams
Smaller teams and individual developers can choose the newBasic Install option to leverage the power of Team FoundationServer 2010 without the footprint of the full installation.
Understand Parallel Development
Reduce the complexity in branching and merging withpowerful new visualization tools. Understand the scope,organization and maintenance of your source code andeasily identify, track and manage changes across branches.
Prevent Broken Builds
The new gated check-in feature helps teams working in thesame branch to prevent costly and time consuming build breaksby testing code in isolation before it goes into the full repository.
Flexible Build Automation
Windows Workflow-based builds with powerful features likebuild queuing and build agent pooling enable teams to easilycustomize, manage and scale out their build environments.
Network Load Balancing, 64-bit server support and newproject collection isolation features let large teams scale TeamFoundation Server 2010 installations to meet their demands.
