TFS Previous Solutions

AVP, DevOps Manager at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
QA IV with 501-1,000 employees
I have worked with Jira and TestRail as part of a different project. They are simpler than TFS. It is really easy to follow these other tools, but TFS has more features and its own unique way of functioning. JIRA has no facility to create test cases, but TFS has it. TestRail is good for writing test cases mostly; project management techniques are more in TFS and MTM. In short, MTM and TFS have more functions. Project management and test management can be done together in one tool. View full review »

Yes we are using HPE ALM for Test Management, TFS was purchased to help support the development team View full review »
Senior System Engineer at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees
Previously, we used VSS, which was nothing but a repository, so TFS was the logical step up. Since we develop almost exclusively on MS stack, TFS as a comprehensive ALM solution fitted perfectly. View full review »
TFS Admin, Configuration Manager at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
Yes, I previously used VSS, but since it was just a source control solution, I moved to TFS, which offered much more features in one package. View full review »
Senior Technical Lead
I used before IBM Clear Quest, which had a very bad interface, was very expensive as they price per user, was very hard to modify screens, no flexibility to extend, and by the way it can only be integrated with IBM Clear Case source control. TFS also is one license for multiple products "source control, work item, build management, reports" also it integrates easily with other products, by its powerful API. Also it is not easy to find an IBM CQ , or an IBM CC consultant, while it is easier to find a TFS consultant. View full review »

Software Development Manager at a financial services firm with 501-1,000 employees
Yes, we used JIRA. Since we have to pay for Visual Studio, licenses for coding purposes (and these licenses included TFS) it did not make sense to continue paying for JIRA, even though I really liked the JIRA solution. View full review »

Senior Developer
We were using Microsoft SourceSafe, but is unreliable and slow. These issues are enough for anyone decide to change to another software management tool. As we are a Microsoft partner, we naturally switched to TFS and are happy with this solution so far. View full review »

Senior programming analyst at a logistics company with 10,001+ employees
The previous solution was PBCS which was obsolete for our team and that is why the company decided to invest in TFS. When selecting a vendor what's most important, speaking from a money point of view, is that it be cost effective. It should have good support like Microsoft doing provides with TFS, and be easy to use as well. View full review »
