Microsoft Visual Studio Team System

Microsoft Visual Studio Team System (VSTS) provides an integrated set of tooling, process and guidance to support ALM (Aplication Lifecycle Management).

ALM describes methods to manage software development and IT initiatives by automating the process from end to end, and integrating the information from the various steps. Integration provides consistency and accuracy and also introduces opportunities for automation.

Let us demonstrate the product.

The three core pillars of ALM are:


of relationships between artifacts. This is traditionally a labor-intensive, manual process, where the effort varies with the number and size of projects, the varying scope, and the number of artifact interdependencies.

Automation of high-level processes

Development organizations commonly use paper-based approval processes to control handoffs between functional areas. ALM solutions improve efficiency by automating these handoffs and by providing central storage for all associated documentation. Automated and executable process models are used by ALM solutions to ensure process adherence.

Reporting to increase visibility

Most managers have limited visibility into the progress of development projects. What visibility they have is typically gleaned from subjective testimonials, and not objective data. The lack of proper reporting also hinders opportunities for process improvement. The ALM reporting functions benefit from integration and automation to provide real-time status information and deep analysis of all activities.

The introduction of ALM within your organization results in the following benefits:

  • Increased collaboration between business and IT.
  • Better alignment of the business with IT.
  • Increased accountability, enabling stricter compliance to governance initiatives.
  • Improved project management, including better estimation, better tracking, and better reporting through a single, unified view of the project. The improved integration stems from the use of tools that work together rather than disparate tools, poor integration, and duplicated data.
  • Quality improvements, so the final application meets the requirements of your customers, and meets quality of service requirements.
  • Shorter development cycles and improved productivity through shared best practice, process learning, and improvement.
  • Increased ability of the IT department to rapidly build and adapt applications to support dynamically changing business requirements.
Sinersys helps you to implement VSTS, allowing you get all these benefits.

CMMI its a certification that regulates the procedures in the software production and services. CMMI 3 Certification is especially valued by the great world-wide clients of software factories, because it guarantees the quality of our procedures.
