“Great application to manage the code on branches”

OverallWe are using Team Foundation Server to maintain the application's development work on different branches like Dev, Demo and Release (production). It helped a lot during integration task i.e. move change Dev to Demo and then Demo to Release. By a few clicks we use to move change sets on branches. As well as we are using its Work Item functionality to track the development progress. Its a great application and made my every day task very easy without any discrepancy. We saved a lot of deployment time. Finally i'll say this is very good tool for software companies so go for this.
ProsTeam Foundation Server is widely used in our organisation to maintain the application code on different different system branch. Using this application my team members(local and international co-workers) keeps their branch in sync by just opting the Get Latest Version. This application also has a role based check in permission. So, un-authorized user can not not check in the script changes on higher systems ( Demo and Production branch). Using this application its very easy to view the history of changes for a script like when this script last time upgraded and what was the code change. Its compare functionality is extremely good - we just selects an option Compare With Previous Version or Un modified version and script change appears on screen earlier and current version. We use to create Shelve Set, Work Item and Change Sets. By the use of this application Integration task became very easy - just need a Change Set number and then go for merge.
ConsSometimes during checkin process it shows un-necessary warnings. As well as Change Set name does not allow some special characters.

“Great tool for project management”

OverallGreat tool for project management, very useful for product based companies having big products under the portfolio. For smaller teams and companies limit the features for better efficiency.
ProsIt helps immensely in every single phase of the software development life cycle starting from inception to release. Few likes are: 1. Task creation and assignment 2. Workflows 3. Source control for every single line of code. Version history of each line of code by which one can track what was changed and what was before the change. We can see who are working on the page. 4. Branching: Very useful for product based companies like us where we can have multiple versions of product. TFS helps maintaining multiple branches for multiple versions. 5. Code sharing: Multiple developers can do the coding with sharing mode in TFS. 6. Agile process: TFS streamlines agile process as one can maintain code review checklist, task status tracking, review list & notifications. 7. Shelve: Code shelve is also a great feature of TFS with which code can be shelved and so can be sent to the reviewer without code check-in. 8. Build automation to release
Cons1. When multiple users will check out the same code file and do the changes at the same line then code merging will result be an issue. Though this issue won't come if multiple users focus upon different sections of the code. 2. Once TFS is implemented with so many features then it is confusing for the users who required only minimal features.

“Team Foundation Server - Source Code Management, Project Management & Build Automation.”

OverallTeam Foundation Server is helping us to manage our large and complex product. As complete agile process is supporting by it. we are using automation build & Gated build to keep the code clean and managed. Deployment process is also easy and fully automatic.
ProsTeam foundation server is a Microsoft product. That provide the source code management with option of TFS Version Control or GIT, Requirement management, project management & lab management provide the complete life cycle as per waterfall and agile software development life cycle. Build automation is also improving as vNEXT build is completely enhanced and are easy to manage and configure. xmal build support is still exist in the new version of TFS. Best feature I like in it is comparing branching and merger is very simple. Shelve is definitely the best feature of Team Foundation server. Deployment and release are easy to manage with the build automation. Gated checkin keep the bug code out of the branch and prevent the branch from error code to get in.
ConsTeam foundation server configuration is very complex. As it need the three tier architecture. Security permission is also complex as you should have the proper knowledge of it otherwise you need to invest your time to get the things fix. Microsoft TFS should also provide the option as GUI to get the Work Item template edit as in old version of TFS you need to edit it on notepad to get the work item modify.

“Expensive but the best solution as an Application Lifecycle management suite for Project management”

OverallValue for money but heavy on pockets
Pros1. This is one of the best ALM (Application Lifecycle Management) suites, I have used up to date. 2. Using JIRA, I have come across a lot of bugs in a short span of time, however, using Azure DevOps gives me the premium feel of managing top-notch projects with a pleasant and appealing view. 3. The overall interface is well designed and easy to use. The user experience is also well articulated and planned, keeping in mind the order of priority while managing and planning for projects. 4. It provides support from all categories and can be used by everyone on the team from managers to developers to testers and more. 5. Initially, it is available free of cost for a team of 5 and can be upgraded based on their pricing plans for larger teams. 6. It provides great integrations and support when connected with other tools of its kind and it offers really high-security features, being built by Microsoft. 7. It can easily be integrated with Azure cloud services to utilize cloud resources efficiently.
ConsThis is one of the best ALM suites, personally, it is #1 for me. I have no cons to mention about this apart from the heavy pricing for cloud resources.

“TFS - One stop for entire team”

OverallTFS is being used for 7 years in our application as effective way to track the work items to closure and also to report and assign bugs on priority. This gives the team a freedom to track the end to end life cycle of application from requirement gathering to post production support. In Agile scrum methodology, a tool like this is a must to not to loose track of your team's target closure of delivery dates.
ProsMore faster as its designed to run over a WAN and it communicates with the server via web services. Also to get the latest from TFS is efficient as it only gives you what you need and doesn't need to check every file in your solution. Integration with Visual studio is the main highlight If one file cannot be checked in, then none of them can be which avoids conflict and further merge issues The work item subsystem is really good as it has lots of features out of the box and is very extensible. This is the place where you handle work items, bugs etc Can add custom policies which will ensure only authorized users are expected to view work item/ bugs etc
ConsCostlier Initial set up is a daunting task Recovery is a pain unless you backup the TFS as an image. No sharing of files.

“Microsoft TFS - A complete Software life-cycle management ”

OverallTeam Foundation Sevres is helping in automate the deployment process and managing the release is now easy then earlier. As its not just source code management we are also handling Project and labs with it.
ProsTeam Foundation Server by Microsoft use to source code management, requirement collection, Project, Lab & Build management. Best part in it source code management and builds that we can configure in it. The next generation vNext build a super advance and capable to build the .net Core application also. With the help of it we can track the release. Deployment is also easy once you setup the auto-build. The gated build help in to push the bad code out of the branch.
ConsTFS permission is also little confusing, once it's mess up it take a lot of time to backtrack fix this up. Setting up the TFS is also very challenging. Work-item template can be also updated. Project Collection don't share things with other project collection we create.

“Highly flexible work management software”

OverallWe've been using TFS for a few years, managing multiple product and team backlogs in the Agile template. We use it to plan out sprints and track all the work that is done. The programmers commit their changes in tasks and track their developement.
ProsIt's a highly flexible software. We've been using the Agile template since the start, but there is also a Scrum and Kanban template that automatically customize the software to fit the domain language. It's easy to create new teams, create work items, manage relations between work items and overall organize a work backlog according to your needs.
ConsIt's so flexible that it's confusing at first. It's not easy to figure out what iteration paths and area paths are for and how to use them in conjunction with teams. It's possible to customize work items and forms but they don't survive updates very well. It is also lacking a roadmap feature, using iterations, that would be a real help in planning releases.

“Team Foundation Server -- Complete Track of SDLC”

ProsTFS , is a Tool that have maintained the whole code very easily with all the track list means we can even track single line of code who has written it and modified later. Best Thing is that its properly integrated with Visual studio. As for the integration Enginner , it make easier to maintain the code version and merge with the latest branch to deploy the latest changes. with the help of TFS we can deploy the changes as per our need means upto which code cutoff we need to apply changes where Sprint package are used.
ConsIn case we need make changes to source code , we need to create a separate work space , check out code and makes required changes and then again check in which is a quiet a long process to make changes and time consuming The user role permission is not properly maintained in TFS . It does not validate whether folder that is present/deleted while while creating a new build

“We switched from a very outdated version of SourceSafe to DevOps and we love it”

OverallThis is our main source control solution. Easy to assign permissions to projects based on users. Integrated with our Office 365 AD accounts. One piece of our solution for going full cloud, this and Azure.
ProsEasy to navigate web interface. All of our source code managed from a cloud based serviced. No on site server needed anymore, we moved to full cloud.
ConsGetting started was a little rough. It was hard to follow the documentation we found online. Eventually with enough playing around we got it to do what we needed.

“TFS -- Collector of Source code”

Prosi have been working in product based company and we are using TFS from last 2-3 years . we are accessing TFS from the Visual studio. TFS helps to manage all the source code under one Shed and everyone can have access to the code based on Permission. Multiple user can access the same code at the same time. As for integration TFS also helps to Track the each line of code by tracing out its history or by annotation It helps us to find out the latest applied change very easily within few seconds .It always Remain in sync with the latest applied changes.
ConsTFS Comes with a lot of features but it is visible to all irrespective of the user role. As for developer and for integrator which have different role see the same functionality ,which make some confusion It do not have Great User friedly UI , need to improve over there

“Great Team Development and Coordination Tool”

OverallBefore TFS, I had a manual process with some batch files to get a build ready and copied to the appropriate server folders. This would take a couple hours each time and left room for mistakes. Now any of my colleagues can start the process and let it build and copy everything automatically without a need to know all the details of what was required before. It saves time and reduces the number of mistakes.
ProsIt couples bugtracking with version control allowing you to associate your code check in's with tasks and your comments all at once. It also includes build services so you can automate building install packages or deployment of updated code to your development, test, and production servers.
ConsThe build section is all done on the web in the latest version so when selecting to run a build from Visual Studio it must open a separate browser to select your options and start it going.

“Azure DevOps a complete solution for workflow.”

OverallAzure DevOps Server helps in Agile planning with Azure Boards. Azure Repos helps in managing the code and ideas using work items. Integrations with third part tools like Docker and Slack are great. We have hosted the Azure DevOps Server on-premise environment with team foundation server which provides the great speed and security.
ProsAzure DevOps provides the complete solution for development workflow. Azure pipeline helps in configuring the continuous build, test and deploy to any cloud or hybrid platform. The parallel pipelines help in executing the jobs and test cases parallel. Managing and organizing the Artifacts is easy and helps in continuous integration and delivery. Pipeline helps in simplifying the complex job by organizing the artifacts. Azure DevOps provides the full integration complete traceability of steps.
ConsAzure DevOps needs to add more functionality in writing the test cases. Deployment group need tag based management to identify and manage the groups.

“Microsoft Azure DevOps ”

OverallAzure DevOps Server is one and only which come with the collaboration of tool. The Dashboard also helps to monitor the task & progress of the team and managers can easily manage the team efficiently to mange the work load.
ProsMicrosoft Azure DevOps Server is collaboration of software development tools like Azure Boards, Azure Pipeline, Azure Repos, Azure Test Plans & Azure Artifacts. The Azure DevOps Server come with Azure Board where we can enable the tracking and planning for the work across the different teams. Azure Pipeline helps in building, test and deploy code. Azure DevOps can also host on-premises or on Microsoft Cloud. Best thing in it is it is free for individuals and small teams.
ConsMicrosoft Azure DevOps Server market place is increasing and developing day by day. Azure DevOps server is really big to learn and practices. Azure DevOps for enterprise price is high as compared to the other DevOps tool. Integration with the other tool like Docker, GitHub some times hangup. Setting and configuring the teams and project are one of the complex and most important part in it.

“This is a Great Tracking Tool”

OverallWe love it. Personally, coming from a company that did not have a ticket management system like this, TFS has been an incredible tool.
ProsThe amount of data that you can capture in a ticket is incredible. Details about the issue, issue type, attachments, links to other tickets, code details, merge information, etc. We use this to manage all the work that our team does. We can easily view tickets and see their status. The search functionality is powerful as well as the reporting functionality.
ConsTFS, or Azure DevOps Server, can be very overwhelming at first. There is a lot to take in for our new team members. Also the time tracking is not as robust as we would like. We use it, but are not fully able to realize the value that could be there.

“Solid if not spectacular Source Control and Project Management Platform”

ProsIt makes the source and project management features work together seamlessly as an all integrated environment. Linking stories and bugs to changesets is simple and smooth which leads to great auditing and history management. The UI is clean and organized and the project boards are very customization to support your organizations workflow
ConsWhile the source management is functional and easy to use for the most part it really dropped the ball on how it handles "shelf sets" which is the closest we have been able to find to the git concept of a pull request which, if you are coming from git, you will sorely miss. Setting up approvers isn't as easy or logical as you would like. Pinning a release is also complex. Not so much a con as as note, the project management aspect is a closed ecosystem so you don't have the massive plugin library that you do in Jira.

“Best version control tool or development tool”

OverallWorking with TFS is great experience but need to make more friendly and with more functionalities.
ProsTeam foundation server is having some great features. Tracking of your work item where i can track my problem test or review very easily which is very helpful. Various integration of tool is really good and make your easily done. You can make deployment of problem or codes automation and track them according to them and easy sender can get email when you link your email.
ConsAfter using TFS for almost 2+year i find check in for some good number of file takes long to deploy in server. Not highly user friendly it will really confusing for someone new.

“An all-in-one ALM suite best suited for Agile methodology and Project management”

OverallBest ALM suite like JIRA for project management
ProsAzure DevOps previously known as Visual Studio Team Services makes use of version control like TFS and Git and many other Microsoft tools like Visual Studio, SQL Server and Azure. As all products are by Microsoft, it is really simple to integrate them seamlessly and work with them efficiently. This tool can easily be used from small-scale to large business organizations that follow the agile methodology. It is really easy to also integrate 3rd party applications with Azure DevOps. It is an DevOps project that manages the entire SDLC and STLC life cycles simultaneously. It is easy to set up sprints, backlogs, plans and follow the hierarchy like Epic, Tasks, user stories, bugs, etc. This is highly reliable and secure. The user interface is remarkable and really easy to understand. It is easy to set user permissions and the overall control flow makes us love this tool a lot over JIRA and many others.
ConsFrankly speaking, this is one of the best tools. However, slightly expensive on the pockets but worth the value.

OverallOverall, TFS is a powerful tool. It is very popular because of it's nice user interface and capability to support various plugins.
Prosvery easy to manage. Support various plugins. A user can write custom queries to track certain PBIs and Bugs. You can also add custom templates to meet your company needs.
ConsThere are some differences in TFS and TFS online, you need to test and decide what will suit your needs better. No subtle way to filter the emails.

“Team foundation review”

OverallIf I talk about the experiences I am very much satisfied with this software. We can easily track the problem history or can do code review easily before check in to main repository.
ProsTFS IS useful software for code repository. Most I like that many developer can work on same time for one screen or problem. You can add work item for any problem to track or track the changes.
ConsFleaxibity to add the code to server or create maximum versions for different directory of codes. Most I like multiple people can work on same problem and can easily integrate code with different version and check in the code.

“Slightly frustrating but ultimately productive.”

OverallIt makes it easier to manage my codebase with my peers.
ProsI really like how well TFS integrates with the Visual Studio suite of tools. It really does enable teams to work together well.
ConsMy least favorite thing about TFS has to do with workspaces. It takes very intentional and careful planning of workspaces to keep your machine from grinding to a halt whereas other source control management systems ala git/mercurial don't stress.

“Whole team work together”

OverallVery nice experience within an organization
ProsBeing a part of organization which use TFS it is very useful product which is joined together with visual studio. By the help of the TFS whole team and even different teams like development team, Integration Team and testing team work together for the increasing of quality of product or software much better then GitHub because we can manage the whole software production within a single software. I use it in my organization for production and Integration very useful product by Microsoft
ConsSome time it blocks the whole other processes or things working on visual studio due to it's heaviness and shows not responding error

“Good choice for reliable version control”

OverallWe've been using it for more than five years for software, websites, mobile apps, and more. It has never let us down!
ProsThis is the most reliable version control tool I've used, and that's exactly what you need when archiving versions of code. Many times it has been necessary to retrace steps through earlier versions of code to figure out when an issue was introduced, and it has great features to help with that type of investigation.
ConsIt can almost do TOO much. Sometimes the options to branch off code can introduce confusion if not everyone on the team understands what's going on, but maybe that's more of a personnel communication issue, rather than a problem with TFS itself!

“Best tool to keep all your work in one place”

ProsI've been using tfs 2015 and recently moved to 2017. It's a great tool to store all your work in one place: requirements, test cases, bugs, design documents and the actual code.
ConsI've been using the tool for 2+ years from now and there are no any negative points for me at this point for the tool.

“Find all your tasks in one spot”

OverallOverall, I had a good experience with TFS. It is a practical tool that was easy for my team to access and monitor their progress. It allowed us to keep all our useful notes, documents and links to content.
ProsI loved that we could put our team on this software and manage each card with a lot of information. Each task that we created allowed us to put product leads, notes assigned to the party and final delivery dates. Each weekly meeting we could discuss each project and put it in the proper swim lane.
ConsThe interface was not the most pleasing. It still had a very dated look, that made the input and managing a little more of a boring task. I would include some "gaming" features that would give you some rewards letting the user know that their project was complete and successful. A couple gold stars go along way.

“TFS - A tool for successful organization ”

OverallAutomated builds and release management, testing is what solve and biggest problem for our organization.
ProsTFS is one the best product for Source code management tool. Its really useful whether you are agile or waterfall model. Along with source code Its really best in requirement, reporting, project management.
ConsIts cons its on premises. you always have to be on company network to work with this tool. Azure Devops has already solve that problem.

“Amazing pipeline management with great uptime”

ProsAzure DevOps makes life easy with the ability to setup a highly custom pipeline to release applications with ease. They have done their best to simplify the process so you can get up and running quickly while providing a whole host of other project management tools.
ConsThere is a high learning curve that naturally comes with release management.

“Make Agile run like waterfall”

OverallJob security - everything is so overly complicated and so much effort must be put into making "dashboards" and exporting data to excel so you can easily edit it, you will look like some kind of cool cyberpunk hacker compared to the people using Jira who just simply get stuff done.
ProsIt actually supports git now... which is like comparing Visual Safe Source to TFvc - except that TFvc is still horrible.
ConsYou could throw a dart to hit something, but the biggest pain point is that it turns the Agile process of managing a project into a project itself. Adding iterations, creating a plan, resources that are shared amongst projects, overlapping sprints, even as something as simple as form templates - this product is really just rubbish and you should save your money, time, and get better quality results with Jira.

“Azure DevOps”

ProsWe are starting to use Azure DevOps for our software development. I found the ease of use to create , edit backlog items , defects , requirements and tasks. Best feature which I personally like is the dashboard, a single page displays the summary of the project.
ConsFor now only thing I couldn't figure out is the support for merging my existing Ranorex automation tests to the Test Manager. Still exploring ...

“Awesome Task scheduler and Version Control for any project”

OverallGreat to manage a project and control all his versions. But it takes time to get to know his full potential, too much options with almost no guides
ProsIts incredible handy once you have learned to use all his properties . Enabled with incredible administration and task capabilities, as well as data analyze. Really helpful at the time of getting to know what your project is needing in terms of quality
ConsIt has so many different options and you can do so many things, but it lacks proper documentation or at least guides for users that start with a new project, you can eventually learn everything. But it will be better if you could have a guide to assist you a long the way.

“Lots of functionality, a bit difficult to navigate”

OverallAzure DevOps is a step up from the previous engineering work management solution my team was using. Although the UX could use some attention to make it easier to navigate, the tool seems to have a lot of promise.
ProsI like that there is an easy tiering system and built in Kanban board and burndown charts for my scrum team. The functionality seems to be good but I need to continue exploring before making a final judgement call. My team has been using this software for <6 months at the time of this review.
ConsThe navigation in the tool is not intuitive. There are so many filters and buttons to press that make it very hard for a novice user to get used to.

ProsI love the integration with Office 365 and Jenkins! Dev Ops makes it easier to function as a team and manage versions of multiple software projects simultaneously. I love the ability to create custom project flows.
ConsPersonally (with limited programming knowledge) found it difficult to transfer all branches of code from Git Lab to DevOps. Getting the master branch over was easy.
