What is Visual Studio Test Professional?
Visual Studio Professional Edition provides an IDE for all supported development languages. As of Visual Studio 2010, the Standard edition was dropped. MSDN support is available as MSDN Essentials or the full MSDN library depending on licensing. It supports XML and XSLT editing, and can create deployment packages that only use ClickOnce and MSI. It includes tools like Server Explorer and integration with Microsoft SQL Server also. Windows Mobile development support was included in Visual Studio 2005 Standard, however, with Visual Studio 2008, it is only available in Professional and higher editions. Windows Phone 7 development support was added to all editions in Visual Studio 2010. Development for Windows Mobile is no longer supported in Visual Studio 2010; it is superseded by Windows Phone 7.

It needs to be independent and user-friendly

What is most valuable?

TFS and MTM.

How has it helped my organization?

I haven't worked with any real projects, but did some R&D using TFS and MTM. MTM is very good for maintaining the test plan, test suite and all. Can link automation scripts with existing manual test cases.

What needs improvement?

It needs to be independent and user-friendly (cannot link automation scripts from MTM, should link the scripts by opening visual studio).

For how long have I used the solution?

Around two years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Nothing specific.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I felt it was bit slow (May be it depends on the server memory size(?).

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Nothing specific.
