Minnesota-based Navitaire produces and manages a range of online business process solutions for airlines and other travel providers around the world. The company wanted to improve development and testing processes for its airline passenger sales and management solution. It also sought better reporting tools to aid in the tracking of cross-team development projects. In late 2009, Navitaire deployed beta versions of Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate and Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010. Using features such as work item hierarchies, new testing tools, and automatic reports, Navitaire can track product changes more easily, increase the efficiency of product testing, and improve collaboration across teams. Additionally, the company has increased project visibility and will be able to bring enhancements to market faster.
