What is most valuable?

Version Control: TFS offers both the centralized “TFVC” version control technology as well as the distributed “Git” version control technology. TFVC is a file and folder based version control system, which includes the ability to check-out,... more»

How has it helped my organization?

TFS sits at the core of our entire software delivery strategy. Implemented and used properly, it provides a centralized place to store all source code and build information for the entire organization. We always know which version of the code... more»

What needs improvement?

Not all of the functionality, which is exposed by the command line interface. A broader view of the system-wide TFVC permissions would be beneficial. Since the security model is so granular, it makes it difficult to pull effective permissions... more»

What is most valuable?

I like its MTM (Microsoft Test Manager) section which gives us options to create various test plans and add test cases into it. Once the tests are run or tested, testers can give results. For higher managers, it is really helpful to look at... more»

How has it helped my organization?

This really helps in planning our Regression and Functional tests as we create plan and test cases in it. It is easy for higher officials to get an overview of the testing part. Once the team is familiar with it, it’s really easy to work with.

What needs improvement?

It is completely different than other test management tools. I would highly recommend giving training and brainstorming sessions for the employees before anybody starts to use it in an organization. Otherwise, it is hard for them to work with... more»

What is most valuable?

Microsoft Test Manager with Enterprise Licensing. TFS’s test management capability without the expensive licensing has large gaps. Users will be unable to access performance testing and coded UI testing capabilities. Test Execution will not... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Any improvements would have come on the development side as the organization already had a more mature test management application.

What needs improvement?

Basic, manual testing should not be only available at the most expensive pricing level. We use many different resources during the testing process, some users only create the test cases, some only execute test cases, and some do both. Access... more»

What do you think of TFS?

Valuable Features Complete integration with VS IDE and Office tools: This give us a possibility of high-level automation, thus minimizing human error. • Improvements to My Organization The TFS is not just a source code repository, but a real and complete ALM solution. Among other things, we use it as a ticketing tool. It is a building mechanism, which is really polished and easy to use. • Room for Improvement TFS on-premise does not support integration with SharePoint Online. If you integrate it with the SharePoint on-premise upgrade, it can be quite challenging. • Use of Solution We have been using this product more than 11 years, started with TFS 2005. • Stability Issues Fortunately, we did not have any stability problems. In some versions, we sometimes noticed...

How has it helped my organization?

It has improved a lot over the years with newer versions, Build is one such area which has been significantly simplified, making it very easy for the users to use than the previous XAML and pre TFS 2010 build infrastructure. Also, the... more»

What needs improvement?

I think the integration with SharePoint. Microsoft should discontinue the use of SharePoint as I don’t really see any value add to TFS, document management features can be included in TFS web portal itself, if required!
