14:30 ‑ 15:15 End-to-End Overview of Visual Studio Team System

Visual Studio Team System addresses the challenges facing enterprise-level teams, increasing the predictability of success. Team System extends Visual Studio from a tool for writing and debugging code into a set of deeply integrated tools that support the complete software development lifecycle across the team member roles of manager, architect, developer, tester and database administrator. This session will detail a sample end-to-end software development lifecycle scenario, which will demonstrate major components of Team System, while illustrating the value of having a customizable integrated process in breaking down silos of information and providing friction-free flow of data between team roles.
