New Microsoft ALM case study: IT Firm Simplifies Data Exchange to Bridge Gap Between Developers and Managers

  • Comments 0

Following the recent release of the Team Foundation Server 2010 and Project Server Integration Feature Pack (Team Foundation Server 2010 and Project Server Integration Feature Pack has released!) I’m very happy to announce the publication of another case study on the topic of Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) from TechResult in Brazil: http://www.microsoft.com/casestudies/Microsoft-Windows-Server-2003-R2-Enterprise-Edition-KN/TechResult/IT-Firm-Simplifies-Data-Exchange-to-Bridge-Gap-Between-Developers-and-Managers/4000009521

TechResult, an IT management and solution provider based in Brazil, wanted to bridge the gap between its developers and its project managers. Developers worked in Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate with MSDN. Project managers gained insights and generated invoices and other reports using Microsoft Project Server 2010, but developers did not sufficiently update data in that software. TechResult deployed the Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010 and Project Server Integration Feature Pack to simplify data exchange. Now, with a single source of truth, developers and project managers can collaborate more easily. Project managers cut time spent updating the status of projects by 70–80 percent and use their new visibility into projects to improve governance, manage risks, and make better decisions. TechResult also uses the feature pack to improve client visibility into projects.

Key quotes

  • With Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010 and Project Server Integration Feature Pack, we are saving 70–80 percent of the time that project managers used to spend talking about status updates.
  • Project managers use the Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010 and Project Server Integration Feature Pack to gain more visibility into the development process.

Key benefits

  • Reduce Time Spent on Project Management
  • Improve Governance
  • Make More Informed Decisions
  • Enrich Relationships with Customers
