      Microsoft Enterprise Commerce IT (ECIT), the volume-licensing unit, linked two server technologies to streamline project oversight and capacity planning in build-and-deploy engineering. <br>ECIT engineers and the project managers (PMs) each use Microsoft technology platforms, TFS and Microsoft Project Server, respectively, to manage their work. However, because neither team uses the other’s platform, managers face obstacles in tracking project status, and identifying and mitigating risks.
      ECIT implemented the TFS Extensions tool to bridge TFS and Project Online, thereby providing PMs and engineers a common platform for assigning and tracking tasks, and reporting status. The biggest benefit: PMs and engineers could continue using their preferred tools to perform tasks. This solution provides several benefits, including increased productivity, a single task repository, mutually visible tracking mechanisms for tasks and risks, and real-time reporting capabilities.
