Here are some notes and a list of questions and answers regarding the TFS Reporting architecture. I gave a presentation at this month's Dallas Visual Studio Team System user group. The topic was TFS Reporting but what we really covered was the TFS reporting architecture. We’ll probably follow-up with a second session of “Effective TFS Reporting” to include demos and the meaning of some of the most used TFS reports. I strongly believe that the TFS Reporting architecture includes several areas that should be understood to effectively and efficiently deliver standard and custom reports. So here are some high points for the benefit of others looking for answers.
