Ship better software, more frequently
Streamline and automate the workflow between development and IT operations and deploy applications faster. The Release Management capabilities in Visual Studio 2015 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.
Easily conquer even the largest solutions
Use innovative modelling 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.
It’s unit testing — now faster and easier
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.
Unlimited load testing
Understand what your application can handle before you deploy
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.
