ALM with TFS: From the Drawing Board to the Cloud

I recently gave a lunch and learn at iVision about the features that Team Foundation Server provides for Application Lifecycle Management. I found that many companies still believe TFS is still only for source control, or have it installed on premise and aren't aware of the latest features. Even more important is the fact you can greatly reduce headaches and remove overhead by migrating your on-premise TFS installation to Visual Studio Online!

In this video I cover a brief overview of ALM and Agile, why I believe TFS helps bridge the gap between traditional waterfall process and new agile approaches, and finally what features are available including demos of the functionality in the cloud. I've had massive success using this tool on large, distributed projects so I look forward to any comments or questions you may have.

The summary:

Managing the lifecycle of software development can be a daunting task, especially after having adopted an Agile methodology that has you moving faster than ever. That is why it is more important than ever to have the right tools in place that allow you to effectively manage all facets of your SDLC from requirements gathering to testing and deployment. In the suite of tools available in the space of Application Lifecycle Management (ALM), Team Foundation Server (TFS) is a stand out. Let us show you how your organization can benefit from the advanced capabilities and unique configurability of TFS to successfully deliver your software development projects on time and on budget.
