Work tracking and management is part of the day-to-day DevOps business. We share your knowledge on how to use Azure boards to the fullest, no matter if you want to manage your backlog, execute sprints or visualize your work and results in Azure.
Are you still running Team Foundation Server 2017, TFS 2015 or even TFS 2012? We will help you to keep it running smoothly and prepare a step by step plan on how to best migrate either short-term as well as in the long run. Microsoft Team Foundation Server support for several products are reaching the end of mainstream support in the near future. We prepare you for this scenario and make sure you are using a setup that is tailored to your needs, strategy, budget and vision.
If for whatever reasons, you need to have TFS as a private instance but don’t want to have a dedicated physical machine running it, we can move it into the cloud for you. Tightly secured, highly resilient, connected to your Active Directory with full flexibility on customizations and updates. You will have all the control – it is all in your hands.
Do you have a complex internal process to follow? And it needs to talk with internal or external issue tracking systems? No worries here – we’ve been doing this for a long time. We know TFS inside out and how to make it work for your process and with your systems. We assist you with any customization you need to streamline your production and delivery at any given step.
It does not matter whether you have old fashioned XAML build, some internal or a third-party build system. We migrate it to a modern YAML build in no time. Or maybe it is a complicated PowerShell script that does the work. No problem, we get that running too. Plus – we will validate everything for compliance with security best practices. Safe and secure.
Finally, you decided to go to the cloud? The best choice you ever made! As you know, Azure DevOps Service is TFS in the cloud. Working with us means a smooth transition removing all unknowns from the start due to our longstanding working history.
Azure DevOps Server is the latest version of TFS and it’s cloud-based. Migrate TFS 2015 and TFS 2018 to the latest version of TFS, Azure DevOps Server. That step also extends your product support, which is provided by Microsoft.
Next to work items, we do also migrate test plans. Get things migrated in less time without any difficulties.
Yes, the Team Foundation Server / Azure DevOps is a powerful and feature-rich platform with a lot of built-in functionality, tools, and services. Nevertheless, sometimes you and your team need some customizations to solve a particular issue or streamline the process even further.
You are looking for a custom Azure pipeline, a personalized work item or a tailor-made DevOps template? We are going to solve this.
Some of us have been in that place, no one wants to be there. The worst-case scenario for any organization. Luckily, we can create a robust disaster recovery plan for lessening or preventing the impacts of a critical failure. Together we develop, structure and implement an effective
disaster recovery plan which lets you sleep soundly at night.
Team Foundation Server 2015 and later versions are able to host Git repositories. If you run a version of TFS before 2015, we are the helping hand to migrate your legacy (TFVC) repositories to Git and enable GitHub usage for you and your system.
