Taking a large enterprise to VSTS isn't simple, especially if you have an investment in your on-premises TFS platform. You need to evaluate customized templates, reporting and applications that meet your business/process needs. Planning and executing on this is critical to your successful migration. You also have to think through security considerations, expectation management, feature releases and availability for hundreds or thousands of developers if you plan on moving to the cloud. This session will provide you guidance and experience of how to successfully tackle this.

You will learn:

  • What you need to consider in proposing to going to VSTS and integrating into your Active Directory
  • About the effort it will take you to go to VSTS
  • Hybrid approaches to going to VSTS and determining the migration path
