TFS Upgrade and Migration from TFS to Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS)

ATO is seeking an expert consultant with subject matter expertise in: a) Upgrading current TFS version to 2017 b) Migrating Team Foundation Server (TFS) to Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) As the ATO moves towards DevOps, it is critical to ensure our DevOps toolsets are kept up to date and meeting industry standards. With TFS being the centre of our DevOps chain, it’s even more essential for us to ensure that we are keeping pace with the IT industry. Our existing implementation of TFS is now 3 years old which is far behind the latest industry standard. A large number of new features and bug fixes have been added to the product within this time which we are unable to make use of. This is having a significant impact on our move to Agile and DevOps, causing users to either have to purchase separate products to satisfy their needs or be forced to accept the slow progress. Moving to VSTS not only brings us onto the latest Microsoft ALM platform but it also give us a fully cloud based SAS solution. Some additional benefits of Migration to VSTS include: • No more manual upgrades and get updates quicker – with Team Services, upgrades are deployed nearly every three weeks and your development teams can immediately take advantage of them months before they are available in TFS updates or major releases. • Significantly reduced administration – imagine not needing to continually monitor and administer your TFS infrastructure. We take care of that for you. • Accessible anywhere – Team members will have the flexibility they need to securely access Team Services from work, home, remote offices, or their mobile devices. • Included with Visual Studio Subscriptions – For many of our developer customers, they already have Visual Studio Team Services included as a benefit of their Visual Studio (formerly known as MSDN) subscriptions! Having an ability to migrate your TFS database allows many subscribers now to take advantage of that important benefit.
