TFS will also make use of a new acquisition announced Monday by Microsoft, of InCycle Software's InRelease business unit. This software will help organizations with their Devops practices, in which the development teams work more closely with the operation teams to debug and improve in-house software more quickly. With agile practices, "development teams could crank out code faster than the ops teams could consume it," Harvey said. InCycle's software provides a way to manage a software development workflow in a way that spans both development and operations.
"This helps with impedance mismatch" between development adn operations, Harvey said. "It is a very clear way of documenting what the process is and then automating that process."
TFS 2013 will also include a fully supported copy of Git, a popular distributed source code management application. The company plans to reveal more features in TFS 2013 at the Build conference, Harry said.
