The Visual Studio Vision
Build the right product for customers
Reduce development complexity
Improve software team communication
Foster a vibrant partner ecosystem
The Software Lifecycle
What We’ve Heard
 “Building software today is very
difficult”
 “My team is spread out and
specialized”
 “Tools today don’t work well together”
 “I need to be able to predict the
success of my projects”
 “My organization needs customizable
process guidance”



Poorly written applications reflect poorly on
the platform
Testers are underserved and second class
in Microsoft’s tools



Testing tools products lag behind Visual Studio
Little integrated support for developer testing;
defects are caught late, sometimes too late for
action
Testing is not integrated into the lifecycle



Developer Tools and Testing Tools vendors are
rarely the same
Testing is isolated from development by
processes and tools
There is no common vocabulary or view of data
for rich analytics
