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

Pros
This solution enables us to link all items usefully, in the way we use Agile.I like the build management features and the integration with Jenkins and many other tools.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.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.

Cons
The test management interface is not very handy.One of the areas that could be improved is to have an effective full lifecycle management.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.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.

Once it starts generating ROI, which for us took between three and six months, one will not even think about the investment.
