Eliminate 'no repro' with IntelliTrace
The new IntelliTrace feature makes the "no-repro" discussion a thing of the past. Testers can file rich and actionable bugs with system information, and even include an environment snapshot. That way developers can reproduce the reported bug in the state it was found.
Understand existing architecture
The Architecture Explorer helps you understand and unleash the value of your existing code assets and their inter-dependencies. You can produce detailed models of exactly how an application is constructed and even drill-down into specific areas for a deeper understanding.
Ensure architectural compliance
Use the new layer diagram to define and communicate logical application architecture and to validate code artifacts against the required architecture. Layer diagrams help your development efforts stay on track so your application conforms to your original vision.
Embrace Manual Testing
Visual Studio Test Professional 2010, part of Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate, provides you with a single tool to capture and update test requirements, automate navigation of manual tests, and speed up the fix and accept cycle by capturing the entire test context. This provides developers with everything they need to ensure that every error is reproducible.
Be proactive about agile project management
Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate is optimized for today's iterative development process with features that help you remain productive and react to potential risks before they happen. You can monitor the health of your project using reports that are automatically generated. Plus manage your project's capacity with historical data and Microsoft Excel-based planning documents.
