What is most valuable?

What I like about this solution is that you have Source control that enables you to organize and track the production so that you know where you are in the development phase and so on. You can also make some continuous integration with it, so it is a complete solution with a complete set of features in one box. We don't even use all the features.

What needs improvement?

I would say compared to some more modern tools which are made to work offline, with this solution you have to be connected all of the time and with a central server. In our case, it's not a big problem because we all work on-premises, but it can be an issue if you have teams in different locations. Then you don't have synchronization. I would say it's the main problem - I would love to see a… more»

What other advice do I have?

I like the performance management of this solution and my rating would be eight out of ten. The solution works for us but nowadays I would perhaps adviser others to use a cloud-based version like Microsoft DevOps. The biggest lesson I've learned is you can have all the tools but you still have to manage the communication between developers. Even with the tools you can easily run into some issues… more»

What is most valuable?

What I like most is that it is a very comprehensive product. IntelliSense and CodeLens are helpful because they help you (auto)complete your code, can show you details about methods, such as how many times it is called from other places within the code and where. Debugging functionalities are useful too. I also like the structure of how it creates solutions and programs. Visual Studio is quite… more»

What needs improvement?

I would like to see the inclusion of more programming languages, especially better support for Java.

What other advice do I have?

The 2017 version is similar to 2015, they have added a few things. One difference is the setup experience, although it is not a groundbreaking change. I know that they have released a new version, 2019, that allows for sharing of what you see also remotely. You can work on code with your colleague who is developing somewhere else, remotely. When it comes to this solution, I am not really missing… more»

What is most valuable?

What I like about this solution is that it is one big framework, which everybody knows, so one can quite easily start-up new developers using it.

What needs improvement?

We are looking forward to the new Blazer system that is coming out soon. It is currently in beta on the service side, so we are looking forward to the new version that will be on the client side too. I also would like to see an improvement in the technical support.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to others would be to go all the way with this solution. Don't try to find a cheaper solution. On a scale from one to ten, I rate Visual Studio Team System an eight and I'm looking forward to the new Blazers system.
