Some of the frequently asked questions we get about Team System and how it relates to RUP are:
- Can I use RUP in Team System?
- Can RUP processes be brought into Team System in the form of process templates?
- Can Team System provide a process enactment platform for RUP?
IRIS Process Author from Osellus offers such a solution. Following the link below you can view a Flash presentation (< 10 minutes) from Osellus on how this works:
Customers using RUP® can enact processes based on this methodology in Visual Studio Team System using IRIS Process Author. IRIS Process Author imports the full contents of customers’ RUP®, including content from any installed RUP® plug-in. The resulting processes can then be deployed on Visual Studio Team System without any modifications or tailored before deployment. RUP® processes appear as process templates in Visual Studio Team System. The solution significantly expands the return-on-investment (ROI) for RUP® through the real-time management of RUP® phases, iterations, activities, roles, artifacts and guidelines across each project instance of a tailored RUP® process.
[Update] It looks like Eric Jarvi blogged about this just a bit ago.
