Agile Manager

One scenario I believe HP Agile Manager is well suited is for a team of 5 or more developers who are releasing new features or addressing defects. Another scenario where it is beneficial is for teams of QA Automation engineers, where again, the objectives are clear. A scenario where I believe it would be less appropriate is for operations-type teams where objectives are not always clear cut, and the roles must be more reactive.

TFS

TFS is very good when working on a large project with a lot of moving pieces. When you have many BAs involved and a lot of user stories, it can be extremely useful to consolidate information. If you are not working on a large project with many users and developers, it may be excessive. However, in general, the tool is extremely helpful when implemented correctly.

Pros

  • Agile manager is particularly good for planning out sprints in an Agile methodology
  • The Task Board in AGM gives clear swim-lanes to indicate progress/status, or to gauge that of another team member.
  • The Dash Board gives visibility to team members capacity and the overall team burn down.

  • Team Foundation Server makes it easy to develop and debug code. While coding, if a variable is missing or comma or something is misspelled team foundation server uses Microsoft visual studio to develop code which helps find where the line of code is with the issue.
  • Test Manager makes it easy to link test cases with pieces of code for developers or test cases for front to end testing for QC analysts. Linking test cases to pieces of code and requirements is super simple.
  • Test Manager makes test automation easy to re-run test cases in the event the same steps will be taken multiple time for a particular test suite. I had one test suite with over 100 test cases and the first 10 test steps were the same for each test case. I set up automation testing using test manager and was able to skip the consistent clicking on the first 10 steps for the 100 test cases.

Cons

  • Removing stories from a Sprint results in them being difficult to find later.
  • Editing story details is slightly cumbersome.
  • It's somewhat unclear how capacity fills up for stories split from prior sprints.

  • I think if old coding languages were easier to migrate and keep in TFS as a archive and easy to access then that would be a huge improvement.
  • Easier to create dashboards within TFS of the approvals for projects.

Because we are a Microsoft Gold Partner we utilize most of their software and we have so much invested in Team Foundation Server now it would take a catastrophic amount of time and resources to switch to a different product.

The complex permissions drags it down for me and since I nothing is perfect I'm subtracting one point for the permissions from my original score of 9.

I have never used Team Foundation Server support from Microsoft. Finding help on the internet is quite simple if you know source control methodologies and terminology.

Do research beforehand and, if possible, do a trial run before implementing into production environment.

Alternatives Considered

HP Agile Manager is beefy enough to work for bigger teams. In this way it matches closely to what is offered with Rally. One area it comes up short when compared to Rally is the apparent lack of a test management capability, where requirements can be entered then mapped to test cases. Agile Manager has some of the agile feel offered by Trello and Waffle but the added functionality that makes it more valuable for bigger teams.

Return on Investment

  • It has allowed us to plan our Sprint work more effectively
  • It has made it more clear how to accurately estimate certain problems
  • It has given clarity over time as to the skill and work speed of team members

  • The biggest impact of TFS is both the breadth and depth visibility of projects. It's integrated capabilities with Visual Studio and SharePoint allows for management, customers, stakeholders and developers alike to have a "place" within the process, understand the state of projects and provide feedback.
