Quotes From Members Comparing TFS vs. VersionOne

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
From the project management perspective, the tool is efficiently managing teams by giving management information, such as reports, graphs, velocity, capacity, etc.The biggest value-add is the solution integrates well with most Microsoft products.Build definitions and releases within the product. allow us to put our latest applications in the field.It has great functionality: work items, backlogs, source code, build releases, and it's easy to use.Complete integration with VS IDE and Office tools: This give us a possibility of high-level automation, thus minimizing human error.Version Control: TFS offers both the centralized “TFVC” version control technology as well as the distributed “Git” version control technology.I like its MTM (Microsoft Test Manager) section which gives us options to create various test plans and add test cases into it.The API for managing TFS programmatically is very powerful, you can listen on work items changes by TFS events.

Cons
More options could be provided from the perspective of requirements management, which would help product owners to use the tool effectively.Since it is Microsoft, it is technology agnostic, thus it does not really fit into various different technologies in the organization.We are also using Microsoft Teams. The two products function separately. There is not enough collaboration between Microsoft Teams and TFS.TFS on-premise does not support integration with SharePoint Online.Not all of the functionality, which is exposed by the command line interface (tf.exe) is available in the Visual Studio GUI.TFS and MTM have their own style of working and they are different from other tools like Jira or TestRail, which are simpler and easy to use.Sometimes we feel that it need more CPU, and RAMs on TFS server, either we implemented the hardware with the product minimum requirements.Microsoft should discontinue the use of SharePoint as I don’t really see any value add to TFS, document management features can be included in TFS web portal itself, if required!

Improve how to create and track releases. Currently, I have to create child projects.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.
