"We did see a massive return on investment from using Eggplant."
"Good text reading ability."
"The most valuable features are test case writing and bug tracking."
"I have found almost all of the features valuable because it integrates well with your Microsoft products. If a client is using the entire Microsoft platform, then TFS would be definitely preferable. It integrates with the digital studio development environment as well."
"I feel that the test plan and test tools are more manageable in TFS."
"User alerts are very helpful for knowing when work is required."
"What I like the most is that you can set permissions on just one folder."
"The most valuable features of TFS are the test plans. We can reproduce reusable test plans in test automation. We have a lot of queries and this feature is very useful."
"As far as queries are concerned, creating, grading, or customizing the queries as a primary requirement is very easy to do."
"Team Foundation Server (TFS) is easy to use, and we have a complete trail and traceability. We also like the access control part."
"The solution would crash from time to time."
"They need to update the Linux. I think it's kind of an outdated Java Swing application."
"There are many things that I cannot do, and I have a lot of bugs."
"TFS is scalable with different Microsoft tools for test management but it is not scalable with other third-party tools."
"I understand Microsoft is phasing out TFS in favor of Git, so I would steer anyone interested in TFS to look into Git."
"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."
"It has been really dated. When you start to work more in an agile environment, it is not really that flexible. They tried to replicate the look and feel of Jira, but it is not quite there. It was nice to use in the past, but it is not as flexible now with the changing development environments and methodologies."
"TFS isn't a great tool if you're on the cloud."
"Currently, we are looking for a solution with which we can incorporate third-party development sites or third-party project teams into the system. Because it is on-premise, it is a bit problematic because we need to have a VPN or something else in the system. A cloud-based solution would be better for us, and that's what we are looking for. Our biggest problem is the external connection, which, of course, is limited by our own IT. It would be good to have some kind of publishing service for this external connection. It might be there, and it might be that our IT is making it impossible for us. Its template editor could be easier to use. Currently, customizing the project templates according to your needs requires some work."
"I only use 1% of the functionality, so I am not familiar enough to know what needs to be improved."
