Team Foundation Server 2012 – Reasons to Upgrade

Searching the web it hard to find a presentation aimed at management, justifying upgrading from TFS 2010 to TFS 2012, covering the benefits and risks to an in-house development environment. There is a vast amount of information on TFS 2012 but it seemed to go too deep, too quickly, without stating the business case for deployment.

The following PowerPoint presentation is a compilation of many sources from Microsoft and others. Acknowledgements are given, along with links to source material. If anything is missing please post a comment. Similarly, for any improvements.

    This comment is on Slide #13. You have a bullet point that states “Backup TFS 2010 using built in tool”, this is not entirely true. the TFS 2010 Backup Tool is only available in the Administration Console after the installation of the TFS 2010 Power Tools. I would also add the latest version of those tools are the December 2011 version.

    A great deck by the way!

  2. This is definitely a fantastic deck 🙂 You are hitting all of the main points.
