We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"ClearCase integrates well with other engineering tools and frameworks such as the Eclipse environment."
"The solution is very stable."
"The solution is pretty stable."
"IntelliSense and CodeLens are helpful because they can show you details about your function, such as how many times it is called from other places within the code."
"The most valuable feature is the code management, where there is sharing of code for developers and it is distributed within the organization."
"I am not familiar with any issues with respect to stability, and I have never seen Team System crash."
"Microsoft makes great products. They are quite robust."
"The protection needs to be improved."
"I would say compared to some more modern tools which are made to work offline, with this solution you have to be connected all of the time and with a central server. In our case, it's not a big problem because we all work on-premises, but it can be an issue if you have teams in different locations."
"The technical support could be better."
"I would like to see the inclusion of more programming languages, especially better support for Java."
"The user experience for the task assignment functionality, and more generally the software lifecycle development, needs to be improved."
"I have seen customizations with Team System that allowed it to integrate into other ticketing systems like Jira, which would be a really nice feature to see."
"When you go into the front-end, the web portal, if, for example, you pick up an issue, it would be ideal if the branch was automatically created in the repository. Right now, this isn't the case."
"This is a very expensive product."
