TFS Review

Version change was quick and very smooth, but its usage needs to be more simple and interactive.

What is most valuable?

TFS itself is a platform for collaborative development. All the features in it are essential for successful development projects, especially version control, defects tracking, SCRUM tools etc.

How has it helped my organization?

TFS SCRUM adoption in our organization was very smooth.

What needs improvement?

Scrum Board implementation and Backlog viewer require some improvements in order to make its usage simpler and interactive.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used TFS since 2007, and the 2013 version since it was released.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No issues encountered.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues encountered.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues encountered.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Back in 2007 we used Source Safe Control. When we realized that we needed a generic platform which would combine task and defects tracking with version controlling, we moved to TFS.

How was the initial setup?

I was not involved in the original setup, but the version change was quick and very smooth.

What about the implementation team?

Our in-house IT department deployed it who are very experienced.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
