There are some great features coming in Team Foundation Server 2015 and they’re already largely available in Visual Studio online.
My personal favourite is the enhanced Agile tooling in Team Web Access and in particular the improved support for Kanban (swimlanes, explicit policies etc.). However, I love the new simplified build system and its tight integration with test and release. Release Management is also ready for the big time with cross platform support and a new web client.
TFS 2015 is due for release on 20th July and there are a lot of reasons you should think about upgrading. In addition, editable process templates are coming to Visual Studio Online so you might also be thinking about a move to the cloud.
However, do you find yourself running TFS 2010 or TFS 2012 (even 2005 or 2008 if you’re really unlucky) and now you’re one more version behind which can be a problem for supportability?
Maybe you have a heavily customised process template or you’re using Scrum For Team System and you want to change it as part of the upgrade?
