Getting your process right could be the difference between a successful project and one endlessly spinning its wheels. When your project is in trouble your customers become unhappy and costs can spiral out of control. However an efficient process can help your team work together efficiently and produce that shippable unit of work you are looking for.

Visual Studio 2010 and Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010 (TFS) deliver an integrated set of ALM tools for managing your development process, including version control, work tracking, project and test case management, and much more. TFS works seamlessly with other popular applications, including Microsoft Office SharePoint Server, Microsoft Office, and Microsoft Expression Blend. If your team develops on Java, .NET, and other platforms, you can also use the Eclipse plug-in to bring the same power and benefits of ALM to a heterogeneous development team. Still need more? You can also access a full application programming interface (API) to write add-ins that supports your unique workflows.
