Team Foundation Server and VS Online adoption at Microsoft

Someone asked me in a blog comment recently to post an update on internal adoption – the last one was almost a year ago.  I’m going to keep it reasonably short.

The best summary is adoption continues to grow.  TFS on-prem is growing slowly because it’s already huge.  VS Online usage is growing more rapidly but is still far smaller than TFS on-prem.

Here’s the latest TFS on-prem summary from our IT team that runs the production TFS servers:

 

May 2015

Unique users

61,777

TPCs

1,008

Projects

19,918

Work items

75,432,127

Source files

411,609,386

Builds/month

479,515

Test cases

11,859,007

Here’s a month by month trend of VS Online adoption by major organization.  The numbers look a little larger than they really are because adoption is still early and people are using only subsets of the functionality or using VS Online as a supplement to on-prem TFS.  I don’t have counts of files, work items, etc for VS Online yet.  We aren’t tracking it at that level yet, but we will.
