Announcing Public Preview of TFS to VSTS Migrator

16 Nov 2016

On Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2016, Microsoft demonstrated its vision of enabling the future of development with solutions that serve any developer, any application and any platform.

If you ever wondered, ‘how can I move my TFS installation to VSTS?’ without losing fidelity i.e. that the history of past changes do not get altered.

For many companies the implication of such moves meant they stayed on premises, with the neeed for regular updates and patching, and all that entails. These issue are often a particular problem for TFS which can strangely sit between Dev and IT where nobody seems to own the patching and maintenance.

This had all changed with the announcement of the public preview of the TFS to VSTS Migrator from Microsoft at Connect(). In essence this allows a TFS Team Project Collection to be imported to VSTS as new VSTS instance. This makes it sound simple, but this can be a complex process depending upon the levels of customisation that have been made to your on premise's TFS instance, and its current version. Hence, the process is Microsoft ALM/DevOps partner led, and I am pleased to say that Black Marble is one of those partners!

So if you have an on premise TFS and ...

  • your company strategy is cloud first and you want to migrate, with full history,
  • or you don’t want to patch your TFS server any more (or you stopped doing it some time ago)
  • or you just want to move to VSTS because it where all the cool new stuff is!

Black Marble is the Worldwide Partner of the Year 2016 for Developer Platform, and thus ideally placed to deliver this for you! 

So please get in touch with Black Marble if you want to explore your options, and how our team of consultants can help.
