Team Foundation Server Automation

In Legacy systems, most of the build and release management systems uses batch or command files to generate the automated build or nightly builds. The main task of the automated or nightly build is getting the latest code from source control and generates the build for further releases.

In early days, most of the systems uses source safe to maintain the source code control. In modern world, the development happens in remote locations or remote offices. To adopt the modern world requirements, Microsoft provided the solution called Team foundation which maintains the code in single location and can be accessed in different locations like remote offices through web based protocols like HTTP and HTTPS. Its specifically is designed for internet, and works well in low band with scenarios too. Team Foundation Server automation helps in building a better architecture and provides a cost effective solution. The technology contains many features that helps to optimize business applications.
