Its major focus will be to ease developers, designers and architects by including advanced modeling features built in Studio 2010. Along with the studio, enhanced Visual Studio Team System will also be accompanied.

In order to improve the productivity and efficiency, new VSTS include features to remove non-reproducible bugs, and quick deployment for highest degree of completenes. It will also provide progress trakcing and ensure all code paths are properly tested.
Life cycle management
Major focus is on managing life cycle effectively so that less time is being consumed on managing life cycle and the collaboration is easy to maintain. Teams can track work items easily and hierarchical work item relationships are supported as well. Using TFS one can track changes across branches.
