MVP TV: Gaze into the Crystal Ball: Reporting in Team System made Easy!

Friday, December 12th, 2008 | 9:00am – 10:00am (PST, Redmond time)

Targeted: This Product Group Interaction is open to all Developer MVPs in all Technical Expertise and public audience.

You’ve paid your nickel and it’s time to ask the Zoltar Fortune Teller for your future: “Is my software development project going down the toilet? Will I be able to ship on time, with high quality? Can I hit my budget?” (Wait, three questions = three nickels.) Zoltar says… Let’s face it, traditional status reporting is about as accurate as I am, and worse, it takes a whole lot longer!!! Team System can help! Its built in reporting capabilities provide a strong foundation for understanding the current status of your project. Not only does it provide a series of built in reports, it gathers the metrics to allow for excellent ad-hoc reports! Using both the built in and ad hoc report capabilities, finding the current status of your project, and predicting your project’s probability of success or failure along several axis. Come learn how to predict your future! You’ll learn how to interpret the build in reports, learn what’s required to create the reports, and how to use Excel pivot tables to connect to the TFS cube for ad hoc reporting. Note: The original delivery of this presentation was the second highest rating of all TechEd 2008 presentations and Steve has made it even BETTER!!
