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

Pros
"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."

More TFS Pros »

"If anyone is looking for a good, lightweight, flexible and agile test management product, I think they would do very well with Zephyr Enterprise.""It has many features, but the main things that we need are the test cycles and integration with automation because we have automation for the web and mobile applications. We use it for test case management to run the test cases and get the results. At this moment, it is fulfilling our requirements. We are able to get the test execution report and the test pass and fail report. This summary is delivered to our management."

Cons
"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."

More TFS Cons »

"Creating better default varieties of reporting would make the product much better and more popular.""We have a lot of automation for our products, and we require a utility for its integration with automation. Currently, we have to write this utility ourselves. It would be great if they can provide such a utility."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

"DFS is more expensive than Zephyr. DFS is around $32 per person, whereas Zephyr is $10 per person. There is a major difference in the price, which is the main reason why we are trying to shift to Zephyr."
