One of the core capabilities of Team Foundation Server is that of reporting - being able to correlate your source control with work items (bugs, requirements, etc.), builds, and people in a meaningful way can really help a development team steer a project towards a successful trajectory. But one of the challenges with Team Foundation Server today is that generating new reports, or even customizing existing reports, isn't as easy as it needs to be for most teams.

In this episode of 10-4, we will take a look at how Team Foundation Server 2010 will enable you to more easily generate dynamic reports that can give you quick insights into how your project is running. In just a few minutes you can create your query and use Microsoft Excel to quickly create a set of graphical reports based on your query. You can even save these reports and publish them to Microsoft Office SharePoint Server for easy access by the rest of the team.

This video is based on the September 2008 CTP, and there will be even more reporting features coming in the upcoming beta release of Visual Studio Team System 2010.
