About Process Template
A process template is a collection of files that together define the various process elements of a team project on a Team Foundation Server. Included in a process template are definitions for your teams work items, work item queries, builds, reports, and SharePoint portal. Each of these artifacts help you manage the work for your software project, track and report on important trends, and ultimately drive toward releasing high quality software on time.
About Team Foundation Server
Team Foundation Server automates and streamlines the software delivery process for all team members.
Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010 is the collaboration platform at the core of Microsoft’s application lifecycle management solution that automates the software delivery process and enables organizations to effectively manage software development projects throughout the IT life cycle. Team Foundation Server 2010 enables the team to be more agile, collaborate more effectively, and deliver better quality software while building and sharing institutional knowledge.
