Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
It's an integrated system that includes all the information that we need to deliver our products smoothly and to track the progress of each piece of code.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.

Cons
The dashboard needs more enhancements.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.

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.
