From the ashes of the TFS Migration and Synchronization toolkit rises the new and improved TFS Integration Platform. This platform can be used to integrate other data stores with TFS. We get a lot of requests for integration with other version control & work item tracking system, collaboration systems (like Sharepoint), CRM systems, help desk systems, etc. The TFS Integration Platform is agreat starting point for building these solutions. Matt Mitrik has written a blog post describing the "Alpha release" that is available now. We're working hard on getting a "Beta release" out over the next few months. If it's an area that's interesting to you check it out and see how you can participate. If you are looking for a solution and don't want in on the gory details, it's not quite ready for you yet - just hold on a bit longer :)
