A Better Way to Collaborate
I Today's software systems comprise numerous distributed services spanning platforms, protocols, programming languages, and even geographies. Successful deployment of advanced solutions depends on bridging the communication gap between development and operations so that the entire IT department is represented early and often throughout the software life cycle.
Visual Studio Team System offers tightly integrated and extensible tools that enable software development teams to develop more efficiently by improving communication and collaboration throughout the development process. With Team Suite, the project manager, testers, developers, and architect know where they are on the project at all times. That means less time in meetings and on e-mail or the phone, and more time delivering high quality.
Visual Studio Team Features
Visual Studio Team System features a world-class development environment built on top of Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition. With Team System, you can publish and administer Web sites more easily with the powerful combination of ASP .NET 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005. With the built-in publishing features, such as integrated File Transfer Protocol (FTP), you can keep files in your local project and synchronize them with files located on a remote Web server. Visual Studio automatically logs copied files, which helps you to identify whether the remote site has been updated with the latest files. And to help protect your site and your IP, you can precompile a Web site to publish only executable code, no source files, to your production server.
Team System also gives you the ability to clean all those unwanted files out of your solution in a one-click operation. Simply choose "Clean Solution" from the Build Menu and all the intermediate files and output directories in your whole solution will be removed.
The Deployment Designer in Team Edition for Software Architects allows application designs to be validated for deployment within a particular datacenter, identifying possible issues before the deployment begins. Service oriented applications often involve multiple components that may reside on different servers and have a variety of configuration and communication requirements.
The Team Edition for Software Architects Deployment Designer can be used to validate an application for deployment in a particular datacenter. Validation detects many common deployment issues, allowing the development team to resolve them before deployment occurs. This has the potential to greatly reduce the complexity of service oriented application deployments.
Visual Studio Team Edition for Testers provides the ability to gather and store detailed information about how an application performs under different types of load. Team Edition also lets you customize Visual Studio with your own internal tools or use supplemental products from more than 190 Microsoft partners, optimizing your team's development flexibility.
