TFS Primary Use Case

Asst. Vice president, Applications Architecture at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
The primary use for TFS is for event planning, including things like writing the user story and then assigning tasks to the developers. Another task is writing test cases, then recording test results, and sending bugs to the team members. The third thing is that we use TFS as part of our CICD pipeline. As part of our pipeline, we use it for checking in code and it acts as a repository. This leads to the fourth thing we use it for, which is to move the code from dev to QA to production. Essentially, we establish a complete lifecycle using TFS. We also use it in conjunction with Azure DevOps. View full review »

We use Microsoft Team Foundation Server as part of our development framework. Most of our development technology is from Microsoft and our primary language is C#, although we do have a number of Java programmers as well. We primarily use TFS for managing our resources and scheduling. We can also use it to check to see whether tasks have been completed by the team, or not. View full review »

Solution Architect at a computer software company with 5,001-10,000 employees
We use TFS for source control and we use code to connect to TFS as well. It's all generated and the normal process for a developer; we take the latest coding, and whenever there is a build required, we get the latest from other developers and carry out the build. We also do branching and leveling. I'm a solution architect and our company has a partnership with Microsoft. View full review »
