TFS Migration Guidance Document Released

Team Foundation Server (TFS) product group and the Team System Rangers started a project on CodePlex called TFS Integration Platform, to facilitate the development of tools that integrate TFS with other systems. Currently, this tool allow to enable TFS to integrate with other version control and work-item/bug tracking systems, but the eventual goal of this project is to enable integration with a broader range of tools/systems (i.e. build). This platform enables the development of two major classifications of tools: tools that move data unidirectional into TFS, and tools that synchronize data bidirectional.

TFS Integration Platform recently released Migration Guidance Document at codePlex. This document introduces some of the migration technologies, takes you through a number of common migration scenarios and associated guidance and covers a number of common questions and answers we have encountered to date.
