MS Acquire devBiz Business Solutions

Great news for all users of Team Foundation Server:

"Microsoft Corporation is excited to announce the acquisition of devBiz Business Solutions, makers of TeamPlain Web Access, a web interface for Team Foundation Server that allows managing work items, documents, reports, and source control repositories." 

One of the top items on our team's wishlist for TFS was a web-based interface to allow business users to view and amend work items without needing to install Visual Studio, and it seems that our wishes have been granted:

Product Roadmap

  • TeamPlain Web Access is now available as a free download to all Team Foundation Server customers.

  • TeamPlain Web Access will be re-released as Team System Web Access as part of the Team Foundation Server Power Tools.

  • Team System Web Access will be fully integrated into a future version of Visual Studio Team System.
