[Case Study] Team Foundation Server for Java developers


The reality


·         The world is not 100% using Microsoft technologies (and I regret that)


·         The developer teams did not wait for Team System to organize the development


o    Project management, source & versioning, collaboration, quality control, configuration management ….


·         The world is not only using Windows platform (L)



So why using Team Foundation Server ?


·         TFS is covering the majority of the functionalities needed by the development teams


o    helping to improve the visibility, collaboration & the quality


·         TFS is an integrated solution


o    Offering an “all in one” solution giving sense to all the pieces of information you are “managing”


·         TFS is for everybody


o    .NET, C++, VB6 developers but also Java, PHP, ….


o    Developing on Windows and non Microsoft platforms


 


Please have a look at the Thomson Reuters case study to understand how a java house decided to unified their developments using Team Foundation Server


·         “90 percent of the programmers work in Eclipse or Rational Application Developer (RAD), and up to 50 percent of the testers work in Eclipse” 


·         “Looking for a way to improve transparency and collaboration, Online Services standardized on Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2005 Team Foundation Server and the Teamprise Client Suite.”



Teamprise is a software vendor offering a suite of client applications for accessing Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server from outside the Visual Studio environment (featuring such as a TFS plug-in for Eclipse on Microsoft and non Microsoft platforms)
