Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
It is pretty expensive compared to other project management tools.If running TFS on-premise is expensive, maybe you could consider moving to the Cloud and use the Visual Studio Team Services.Use the Microsoft recommended “seat-based” licensing model. This allows a single developer with multiple machines to consume only one client license.TFS is on the higher side, but if you intend to use the tool as a complete ALM tool, it will reduce your costs in the long run.It's just as expensive as HPE ALM, without many of the features, best used for development tool only to avoid higher costs.
