View this exclusive preview of our upcoming webinar on automating complex deployments in Microsoft TFS.

In this live webinar, application deployment expert Ron Gidron will introduce the concept of 'Zero Touch Deployment'; demonstrating how the successful realization of fully automated application releases can reduce errors, lower costs, increase operational throughput and accelerate time-to-market.


Mr. Gidron will explore the potential of embedding the extensive capabilities of deployment automation in the TFS environment, systematically demonstrating how the successful integration of an automated solution will facilitate:


• Rapid & accurate continuous deployments

• The automation of selective/ad-hoc deployments (such as hot fixes and patches)

• Traceability and visibility

• A comprehensive release repository

The webinar will be held on January 25, 2012 at 10am GMT/11am Central European Time. Register here: http://www2.noliosoft.com/TFS_Europe_2012

  5. 5. Challenges (1) • A Continuous Integration Build Will Create Many Builds - Can lead to multiple builds every day • Manual deployments are lengthy • Simplistic deployments are inadequate • Deployment Process Should Support “Real” Smoke Tests www.noliosoft.com © 2011 Nolio Application Service Automation. All rights reserved.
  6. 6. Challenges (2) • TFS Drop Location is a “Forest” of Build Folders - Very easy to manually select the wrong version - Using file sizes and other manual techniques is not an option • Deployment instructions are often complex and involve multiple steps, people and servers. • Scripts are hard to maintain and version control • Deploying to pre-production and production is handled by multiple people and cross silos www.noliosoft.com © 2011 Nolio Application Service Automation.

  7. 7. Challenges (3) • How do we keep a tab at all times on what has been deployed and where? • How does development know exactly which build/version to work with when production issues occur? • How can we know if a deployed build contains certain features and bug fixes? • How do we monitor a constant progress of builds and versions across the deployment chain to production (i.e. When new builds are not getting to QA)? www.noliosoft.com © 2011 Nolio Application Service Automation.
