ALM - Application Lifecycle Management.
So if you're not using TFS or TFS reports for that matter, let's see what TFS reports are all about. TFS embraces these aspects through a single store or version of truth.
As work is undertaken and accomplished, the reports automatically reflect this.
First, lets consider some of the main roles.
What kinds of reports can I get?
Here's some examples...
- Stories Overview Report
- Bug Status Report
- Bug Trends Report
- Burndown and Velocity Report
- Quality Dashboard
- Build Code Coverage Dashboard
- Task Burndown and Story Progress Dashboard
- Detailed Quality Dashboard in Context
- Build Summary
- Specific Build Details Log
- Build Deployment Log
And here's VP level report. Please click on it to get full screen view.
The VP (or main person in charge is presumably busy). They need to make decisions without the pain of excessive meetings - in this agile and fast paced competitive corporate world. This report, provides them an overall view on progress on the requirement. How much developer work is remaining, how much testing is remaining and how many bugs before we ship to our valuable customer. This report is automatically generated, based on actual work people are doing through TFS work items in almost real-time. Indeed, why not share this post with your VP and get some potential credit? I know I would not hesitate... 😉
