In our lab environment after upgrading the Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise to Windows Server 2012 Standard, i lost the IIS data. Please see the attached screenshot.

The Server is a standalone server, running Active Directory, DNS, File Services, Domain Controller, SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise, and Team  Foundation Server

Why we lost the IIS data, why it didn't give me any warning signs and how do we recover IIS data.  Is this the normal behavior, or do we need to do something different to upgrade.

All other applications are working.

All other applications are working.

And by this do you mean that some/one application isn't working and the rest are?  Or are they all not working?

If you have a good backup of the old server one thing you could do is bring it back online as 2008 then use this tool to migrate to the new server:
