  • DevOps - Manage complexity and close the loop between development and IT operations
  • Agile - Greater team productivity for enterprise application development
  • Quality - Plan, execute and monitor your entire testing effort — continuously
  • MSDN Subscription - Includes virtually all Microsoft software, Azure, Pluralsight and more

Streamline and automate the workflow between development and IT operations and deploy applications faster. The Release Management capabilities in Visual Studio enable you to deploy continuously and define release stages, acceptance criteria, and approval workflows to automate the release process. After deployment is complete, close the loop between production and development and fix bugs faster with real insights and data captured directly in production.

Agile tools and project management capabilities optimized for enterprise-scale projects help you manage work across projects and teams in an environment that’s productive and easy to use.

Use innovative modeling tools and create the high-quality, mission-critical software that is the engine of your business. Easily manage dependencies and even the largest codebases with tools for code mapping and architectural discovery. Use advanced monitoring and debugging tools to identify, triage and fix complex application issues faster than ever.

As you edit and run your .NET code locally, you encounter an unexpected behavior - this could be a bug! Diagnosing such issues can sometimes take hours of searching through source code and repeated guesses where to set breakpoints. Using the diagnostic tools in Visual Studio and IntelliTrace, you can see the history of your code’s execution and navigate back in time to inspect state without manually setting breakpoints. This will save you a lot of time that you can spend more productively instead.

Use IntelliTest to quickly generate relevant unit tests for your code  - automatically. IntelliTest dramatically reduces the effort involved in creating unit tests for new or existing code, so you can focus on building features instead. Easily create sets of unit tests for legacy code that has never been looked at before and increase path coverage and code quality - with minimum effort.

Visual Studio makes integrating load testing into your development process easy, and will help you avoid nasty surprises in production. Whether those surprises are caused by worldwide distribution, the scale of your customer base or problems that only manifest in multi-day runs, Visual Studio load testing will give you the analytics to solve those problems before you deploy.
