Team Foundation Server, together with Visual Studio Team System, is a critical component in Microsoft’s vision of bringing together the core roles that are part of the software development process. Team Foundation Server ties Microsoft’s broader project portfolio management and Design for Operations (DSI) strategies to ensure software is built to business expectations. Microsoft’s approach differs in that usability and integration across the lifecycle have been a part of the product design from the ground up.

Team Foundation Server is not only a workflow collaboration engine that enables the use of a team's customized process; it also serves as a centralized data warehouse that collects real-time intelligence on project history. With this approach, Team Foundation Server differs from traditional approaches that rely on industry benchmark data. Moreover, the data intelligence features of Team Foundation Server forms a bridge to the CIO and project management, helping to drive more realistic impact analysis, capacity planning and resource management. When tied to Enterprise Project Server it drives prioritization of software initiatives to deliver better ROI.

Another area of significant customer concern is compliance and auditing. Out of the box, Team Foundation Server supports the reporting and auditing features of the Software Engineering Institute's Capability Maturity Model (CMMI). With Team Foundation Server, organizations can automatically collect the information necessary to generate customized reports that help address the increases in industry regulation. This level of visibility is critical to managing software development as a core competence inside of organizations ensuring critical analytical capabilities to greatly minimize risk and advance business opportunity.
