Microsoft Team Foundation Server Integration
Many organizations, particularly those building for Microsoft platforms, use Microsoft TFS as their planning and reporting center. However, when members of the extended software development and delivery tool adopt specialist tools, the reports from TFS no longer reflect up-to-the-minute data. For example, if the testing team chooses to use Micro Focus QC (formerly HPE QC) as their test and defect tracking solution, the development team needs access to the information in the defect tracker to triage bug reports. Or if the business analysts use a purpose-built requirements management tool such as IBM DOORS, DOORS Next Gen or Jama, the developers using TFS would prefer to see these reflected as stories in Microsoft TFS. And if one development team uses JIRA to manage their work, the collaboration between the teams using TFS and these other tools is fractured. Tasktop flows work items in Microsoft TFS to defects, tasks, stories work items and other artifacts in other lifecycle tools.
Why Integrate Microsoft TFS with Tasktop
- Flow artifacts across the lifecycle, allowing information to flow freely between Microsoft TFS and other tools like Jira, Micro Focus QC (formerly HPE QC), IBM RTC and many more.
- Improve team collaboration by connecting Microsoft TFS to third party tools and allow artifacts to be synchronized across the lifecycle.
- Support cross-tool traceability and reporting, removing the need for manual processes and spreadsheets.
- Enrich the reports in TFS to include up-the-minute status from other tools.
