TFS Review

Speeds Up The Build And Deployment Process


What is most valuable?

I especially like the Build and Release features since I mainly work in that area with customers.

How has it helped my organization?

It has sped up the build and deployment process. We can now deploy the same application version to each environment in a repeatable and automated fashion.

What needs improvement?

I think the testing tools need some work.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used TFS since 2015. I have used the latest version since it first came out.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

10 out of 10.

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

No, I have used this solution for 12 years now.

How was the initial setup?

It was very easy to deploy the on-premise version of TFS. The wizard really helps facilitate the ease of the deployment. The web version is super easy to setup and it takes a little more than 10 minutes to be up and running.

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

I cannot advise as the costs and licensing vary by organization and the type of agreement that they have with Microsoft. I direct all those types of questions to Microsoft.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No other products were evaluated, but I have setup other solutions for customers.

What other advice do I have?

Don’t wait too long. If you can use the cloud version, it has so much less overhead and you also stay up-to-date on features.
