Microsoft Visual Studio Test Professional: Foundation

Visual Studio Test Professional is the test management solution from Microsoft based on the Team Foundation Server and Visual Studio technology. It is an integrated testing toolset that delivers a complete plan-test-track workflow for in-context collaboration between testers and developers, greatly increasing testers’ visibility to the overall project.

Visual Studio Test Professional integrates with Team Foundation Server, a platform used by testers, developers, and other team members to align and track project objectives. This integration ensures that testers can collaborate effectively throughout the entire development process.
