Dev teams of any size welcome
Watch productivity soar and risk plummet
In Microsoft Visual Studio Ultimate 2012, you’ll find the agile processes, sophisticated management tools, and robust testing infrastructure that are essential for creating fast results and delighted customers.
Use IntelliTrace to capture the system state associated with an error
Eliminate the “no-repro” bug scenario through the IntelliTrace historical debugger which records file and registry access, exceptions, method calls, and other state information to allow code execution to be rewound and the exact error condition re-created.
Use IntelliTrace in the production environment
Capture extensive debug information while the application is running, allowing your development team to rapidly diagnose production issues.
Alm consolidation across teams and technologies
Centralize the Application Lifecycle Management across different teams in your organization with the integration provided by Team Explorer Everywhere with Java development tools or the extended ALM support for Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Visual C++.
Model and enforce the architectural vision
Manage the enterprise architecture with advanced modeling, discovery, and architecture tools to describe your system and actively enforce the architectural vision as reflected in the layer diagrams
Visualize the structure of an application
Visualize the structure of an application with UML 2.0-compliant diagrams, with support for Activity, User Case, Sequence, Class, and Component diagrams.
Describe and enforce dependencies
Use layer diagrams to describe the intended dependencies among the components of your application with dependency validation to ensure that the dependencies in the code conform to the intended design.
Use tools to understand the relationships in existing code
Browse and find code in source files and compiled code with Architecture Explorer, including assembly files, executable files, and binaries, and understand the relationships between various code slices. Plus, generate Progressive Reveal and Standard Dependency Graphs to understand relationships in the code base.
Test to ensure production performance and scalability
Apply constant, step, or goal-based load patterns for load testing. Analyze and interpret test results in multiple ways that allow rapid identification
Perform unlimited web and load testing
Test on an enterprise scale with an unlimited number of test nodes, including web applications with support for an unlimited number of virtual browsers.
Bring development and operations teams together
Link the operations team to the development team with the Operations Manager Connector. Get application performance monitoring and diagnostic information collected by Microsoft System Center to the Visual Studio Team Foundation Server and use Preemptive Analytics to automatically create and update work items gathered from the production environment, allowing the development team to respond to silent production failures.
