Featured Review
Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The tool has the ability to integrate with various requirement management, test management, and version control tools.""Though optimized and automated test generation is the core functionality, the product's integration with other tools sets it apart."

More Conformiq Pros →

"The work item feature is most valuable. It allows us to store all product requirements. We can also link the test cases to those requirements so that we know which feature has already been tested, and which one is waiting for testing. We can also couple the code reviews, unit tests, and automated tests into these requirements. It is reliable. It has all the features and good performance. It also has reporting tools or analysis tools.""The interface is good with TFS.""The solution is very much stable.""It is easy to push our changes from quality to pre-prod and prod.""The most valuable feature from my point of view is project management, which includes user stories as well as task management.""The most valuable feature of TFS is that it keeps the code secure while working collaboratively in a team of four or five individuals.""For what I need TFS for, I have never run into any limitation.""What I like the most is that you can set permissions on just one folder."

Cons
"Even though the 4.1 version is a far-improved version from its earlier avatars, the performance of test generation is still an issue on real-time models we have.""It would be helpful to have a feature in the tool's UI to map object locators within the system.""I would like to see the output data optionally used as input for the model, as further action in the flow."

More Conformiq Cons →

"TFS isn't a great tool if you're on the cloud.""The price could be cheaper.""The project management side should be addressed and the project and release planning should be somewhat extended.""I'm looking for specific options that aren't currently available, such as active status, new status, or what's currently in progress.""There's not automatic access to test case management and execution.""I only use 1% of the functionality, so I am not familiar enough to know what needs to be improved.""They have room for improvement in merging the source code changes for multiple developers across files. It is very good at highlighting the changes that the source code automatically does not know how to handle, but it's not very good at reporting the ones that it did automatically. There are times when we have source code that gets merged, and we lose the changes that we expected to happen. It can get a little confusing at times. They can just do a little bit better on the merging of changes for multiple developers.""TFS is scalable with different Microsoft tools for test management but it is not scalable with other third-party tools."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "I wouldn't say that this tool is cheap or expensive but in the middle."
  • "We are using the open-source version."
  • "The price of the solution is cheaper than other competitors and it is a per-user license."
  • "We pay for the license yearly."
  • "I am not in a position to comment on the licensing terms, as we are talking about an enterprise arrangement."
  • "I was working with the engineering team, and that was not under my umbrella. From what I can remember, its license was yearly. They had the licenses on a per-user basis, and they included MTM."
  • "Microsoft products are always expensive. Obviously, they are quality products, but it would be helpful if there was a reduction in price. But compared to other vendors, I think the cost is high."
  • "I believe we pay on a yearly basis. I don't know the current costs of them. We outsource all that to a third party. Each of the developers gets a Microsoft Visual Studio Azure DevOps license, which gives them access to the TFS server as well. We probably pay on average about 1,800 Canadian Dollars a year for every developer, but that covers a lot more than just TFS."
