TFS Review

Increased productivity and reduced our times to market by 60%


What is most valuable?

Project Management: Agile and Code development can now work side-by-side in the same solution.

This speeds up development, as developers do not need to be swapping applications to update and develop at the same time.

How has it helped my organization?

TFS increased productivity and reduced our times to market by 60%.

What needs improvement?

The product needs to stay competitive with its peers like Github, and the adoption of other markup language renderings in the code section of TFS.

For how long have I used the solution?

10 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I didn't encounter any issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I didn't encounter issues with scalability.

How is customer service and technical support?

If you have premier support, then the support is excellent. We get a response within four hours of placing a ticket.

Which solutions did we use previously?

I did not use a different solution prior to using TFS.

How was the initial setup?

Simple, out-of-the-box.

The only area that takes time is creating builds and release pipelines.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It's free with MSDN (Microsoft Developer Network).

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We have looked at Github, JIRA, and Rally.

What other advice do I have?

Team Foundation Server is an enterprise ALM tool, not just for developers.

It’s come a long way in 10 years, it's worth a look.
