It's not easy taking a large enterprise to VSTS, especially if you have an investment in your on-premises TFS platform. Customized templates, reporting and applications that met your business/process needs to be evaluated. You also may need to sell people on the approach.

You 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 this can be tackled successfully.

You will learn:

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