We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I like the Kanban board. It is very useful in terms of seeing who is working on what and what the current status of work is."
"I like the build management features and the integration with Jenkins and many other tools."
"This solution enables us to link all items usefully, in the way we use Agile."
"The most valuable features are the dashboard and task-selection capability."
"The interface is easy to navigate."
"The most valuable feature is the backlog."
"Good branching and labelling features."
"The most valuable feature is simplicity."
"We are satisfied with technical support. Communicating with them is very simple. We also have a lot of online resources to check and to study and to train our team with. The documentation is very clear and readily available."
"Code testing is the most valuable feature of this solution for developing software."
"The setup is easy and straightforward."
"The solution is very stable; there's nothing in relation to stability to complain about."
"The most valuable features are the SSIS reports, the deployment models, and the ability to interact with other Microsoft tools."
"The most valuable feature is the in-built support for C# and .NET projects."
"Performance-wise, it is a great tool."
"The most valuable features are tools like IntelliSense and ReSharper."
"In the next release, I would like them to include integration for various projects, similar to what JIRA has, and they could create this feature on the dashboard."
"One of the areas that could be improved is to have an effective full lifecycle management."
"The test management interface is not very handy."
"The interface can be improved and made more user-friendly."
"I would like to see the reporting features expanded so that I can see details on the users connected to all of the projects."
"The program and portfolio planning facility can be improved."
"Integration from Visual Studio could be improved."
"They should have design patterns in TFS for the development team, and design patterns for the QA."
"The service right now is far too expensive. You need to pay per user."
"Enhancing the support for web application testing and load performance would be an improvement."
"The data flow can be improved."
"The database administration could be better; you should be able to choose new tools with the development environment in Visual Studio. It could be easier to use."
"The documents on the Microsoft website are not very useful, and they ought to make it easier to find answers."
"We would like to be able to easily integrate this solution with our continuous integration tools, such as Jenkins."
"The pricing of this solution should be lowered."
"The integration with Git needs improving because it is a bit disjointed and unpredictable."
"The pricing is reasonable at this time."
"TFS is more competitively priced than some other solutions."
"We pay subscription fees on a yearly basis and the price is reasonable."
"I wouldn't say that this tool is cheap or expensive but in the middle."
"We are using the open-source version."
"The price of the solution is cheaper than other competitors and it is a per-user license."

"The pricing is expensive."
