Visual Studio is a good solution that I would recommend. My only complaints are about the Git integration and the removal of the diagrammatic representation of the database from the entity framework. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Feature-wise, I think that this product is good enough. It is a solution that I would recommend, provided that it actually meets the requirements for the project. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

We are only using test scripts, which involves a minimal number of the features that are provided. We have also recommended this solution to some of our clients. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

At the start, many years ago, it was not the best solution, but now it is the best in a technical development environment. The solution is installed directly onto PCs. We're using the 2017 version; the last few years the solution hasn't changed too much. I'd rate the solution ten out of ten. It's my favorite tool, I haven't used anything else which is better than Visual Studio. I feel that I'm not using all of the capabilities so I'm content with the level of features on offer. In the latest versions, you can also develop and rate applications with it so it's really quite a complete product. In terms of advice I would give to others, I'd recommend that they go through the tutorials to get used to the solution and its offerings.

It is a very good solution and on a scale from one to ten, I will rate it a nine. In the next release I would like to see better data flow.

My advice to anybody researching this solution is that this tool is a must. It is very helpful for testing code. It will end up costing them less than what they are paying with third-party applications, partly because of the integration that is available. The developers have to be familiar with Visual Studio Test Professional because they will know how to organize the code such that the testing comes out with results that are meaningful to them. Overall, this is a very good product. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

We are using the cloud deployment model, on Azure cloud services as well as an on-premises deployment model. We have around 100 quality engineers that we eventually want to get on the system. To do this, we need to apply a test specific license for using and testing the modules in a real case or in TFS. I don't know how much this will ultimately cost, but it's not cheap. We are a partner with Microsoft, so we are eligible for some free license-related testing. We're using the on-premises deployment model for this. They do require some subscriptions for cloud services with limited accounts as well. The highest value for this product is the integration. Everything is tracked, everything in your software lifecycle can be integrated. Data can be added. You can track and monitor and make some reports and dashboards across your project to get more details as well as more accurate data about day to day activities done on your project. It's very useful. Before using Visual Studio Test Professional, we could not imagine that we could track certain types of or large amounts of data for the testing team. We were so focused on the development and issues and bugs without linking them with testing. Now we use testing data and test management to test the plans and to link everything with the requirements and the project lifecycle. I would rate this solution nine out of ten.
