Update on TFS Adoption at Microsoft
Every month we take stock of how TFS adoption is going. I thought I’d share some of the results with you this month. Overall, it is going strong but we are starting to see a leveling off in the number of regular users at about 15,000. We’ve got some new teams in the pipeline but I think we are starting to level out on the number of internal teams that can adopt in this timeframe and on the TFS 2008 release. I expect to see an up tick as Rosario gets to the point teams can use it and some of the bigger teams (like Office and Windows) finish up their next product cycles.
Here’s a quick summary and some trend charts that show the changes over time.
The drops in Active Users in August were due to changing the way we counted to avoid double counting people who use more than one server.
As you can see, the rate of adoption of TFS for new projects is stunningly steady.
