  • Agile project management to TFS
  • UI Updates to make it more appealing
  • What makes Ultimate? IntelliTrace (including in production), Web/Load testing and the Architecture tools.New features? Graphics Debugging, Code Clone, Code Review, Storyboarding, Feedback Manager, agile management tools.Features moved to Premium from Ultimate? MTM, including: Manual testing and Lab Management
  • Take inventory and evaluate what an upgrade will impact.
  • Understand how TFS supports your work today. Adopting 2012 will help in many ways. But understand pieces in your existing implementation that might break if you don’t plan appropriately.
  • VS 2012 & 2010 us supportedSxSMost common projects and file types are supported (defer to the next slide)
  • http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh266747(v=vs.110).aspx
  • Local workspaces and the execute bit are examples of things that need TEE 2012 AND TFS 2012
  • Note – this is important and likely to be a kicker… SQL 2008 is NOT supported.Also – no SP requirements for SharePoint, but many O/Ses will require SPs.
  • #1 is one biggie#6 can take time if you have a big database#7 can be the other biggie, depending upon your process and any customizations or tooling
  • Make sure they know this is an “if you’re luck” situation, especially for customized process templates.
  • Understand our environment. Know
