An IT administrator needs to speed up communications between Development and Information Technology (IT) Operations (DevOps) teams and reduce the time it takes to resolve issues. With each team
using different toolsets and having different information needs and workflow processes, communication between these teams has been a challenge.
Using several new management packs, IT administrators can integrate Operations Manager in System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 (SP1) with development tools, such as Team Foundation Server, Microsoft
Visual Studio, and IntelliTrace to:
This solution helps you streamline communication between DevOps teams. It can help you decrease the time it takes to deliver an application into production, where it can deliver value to your
customers. The solution lets you:
This solution is intended to serve as a high-level example, not as comprehensive or detailed guidance. We hope that you will use the example solution as a guide to posting descriptions of your
own solutions that are particular to your business or organization. Then, others can use your solutions to build their own solutions using multiple System Center components. For an example scenario article template, see
Cross Component Scenario template on the TechNet Wiki.
You’ll need these components and products for this solution:
This solution increases organizational efficiency and reduces the time for issue resolution. In addition, you can get architectural guidance for the Microsoft cloud strategy, which is hosted on
the Private Cloud Solution Hub. The strategy describes how organizations can use a private cloud
to deliver information technology as services by providing a pool of computing resources. These resources are delivered as a standard set of capabilities that are specified, architected, and managed based on requirements that a private organization defines.
Your IT operations team should be running System Center 2012 or System Center 2012 SP1 and have the DevOps management packs imported. Your Development team should be running Visual Studio, Team
Foundation Server, and IntelliTrace.
Note that you don’t need to use all of these integrations, of course, but each one adds another degree of efficiency and problem-solving ability into your DevOps workflow.

These are the three major steps to getting started with the DevOps management packs and configuring Operations Manager for Team Foundation Server and IntelliTrace integration. The topics that are linked to in each step here give you further details on the
specific configurations and imports that you might need along the way.

Technical scenarios provide guidance for challenges that are solved either by using multiple System Center components or by using special configuration or customization. Several
scenarios have been documented here in the TechNet Wiki, and this list will keep growing. For more technical scenarios, see the
System Center 2012 TechCenter Scenarios page.
