Azure DevOps Server (formerly TMS)

Well suited:
  • Large teams developing heterogeneous applications
  • Following SAFe process / Multiple Agile Release Trains (ARTs) / Portfolio management
  • Company undergoes regular external audits of their SDLC practices
  • Comprehensive reporting is required
  • Pipeline templating is required
  • Many git repositories are needed having to link to a unified backlog
  • Access to backlog work items and reporting is required for business stakeholders

Micro Focus ALM / Quality Center

HP ALM is well suited for waterfall projects specifically if the teams are novice. It provides excellent support for project planning, tracking & test management. Top leadership can efficiently track, measure and report on project milestones & key performance indicators. Development teams have access to a wide variety of tools to automate their development, testing, bug tracking, and reporting tasks in one place. Its extensive documentation and tutorials help new users to learn this tool pretty fast. Though for agile teams HP ALM Octane can be explored but its not value for money & did not handle distributed teams well.

Pros

Azure DevOps Server (formerly TMS)

  • Vast range of Template for Automated Build and Release Pipeline with option to have conditional triggers

  • The traceability between tests and defects allows testers to create defects directly from the test case, including the detailed steps to recreate the defect for the developers. Upon fixing the issue and deploying, testers can rerun the appropriate tests.
  • Being able to test across multiple environments ensures that visibility into issues, developing regression scripts and other repeatable actions are available for different teams, reducing duplication of effort.
  • Integration with testing tools such as Selenium, Unified Functional Test, etc. allows for development of automated regression suites to assist in maintaining clean code as it moves through the development lifecycle, especially on mature applications.

Cons

Azure DevOps Server (formerly TMS)

  • Searching through code can be somewhat cumbersome. It would be nice if there was a way to do general searches in certain areas of the system.
  • Without proper training, the system can be confusing to navigate. This issue can be prevented with good training but it is something to be aware of.
  • Navigation can be clunky at times depending on where you are in the system. For power users, this is not a huge deal but it is a tad bit annoying.

  • HP ALM is little late in adopting the Agile methodology but with the new HP ALM Octane products, organization can easily manage teams and projects which follows that methodology. I would like HP to make an effort to gel this two products capabilities in one product in future.
  • HP ALM shall invest some more resources in making HP ALM Synchronizer product more robust. HP ALM Synchronizer is a very good tool to synchronize data e.g. Requirements and Defects between HP ALM and other endpoints like Team Foundation Server and JIRA.
  • HP ALL is still hard to implement if you want to build a true DevOps team. This feature definitely need some improvements for "non-product" oriented organization to adapt it.

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.

Azure DevOps Server or TFS is a complete suite in itself. From Developer's machine where the code is developed to the production environment where the code is meant to run it take care of complete flow within itself. It acts as a code repository you can check-in check-out codes using GIT interface. It also acts as a Build and Automation Test tool which can help you to judge sanctity of your code. It further acts as a release manager to deploy your application to the production environment. And all these steps can also be performed without any manual intervention with the option to have approval processes. Hence its a perfect blend of all set of tools and capabilities required to bring code to production.

If your needs are to simply track individual defects without flash, this may be the tool for you. If you want a tool which can easily and seamlessly integrate into your corporate intranet, I would look elsewhere.

I have not had to use the support for Azure DevOps Server. There have never been any issues where I was not able to figure it out or quickly resolve. Our Scrum Master has used support before though, and the service has always been prompt and clear with a customer-focus

It is a great tool, however, it got this rating because there is a lot of learning that takes a lot longer than other tools. There are no mobile versions of ALM even with just a project summary view. I believe ALM is well capable of integration with other analytics tools that can help business solutions prediction based on current and past project data. This is Data held in ALM but with no other use apart from human reading and project progress. ALM looks like a steady platform that I believe can handle more dynamic functionality. You could add an internal communication platform that is not a third party. Limit that communication tool to specific project members.

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

We're with Microsoft since day one of starting the business. Since then, we've not encountered even a single reason not to be a part of the MS Family.The primary reason for our association is Innovation, Cost Effectiveness, Ease of Use and Great Support.Support and help materials are really awesome. Mostly within 30 minutes, any critical issues are addressed.

ALM/QC does not stack up too well against other lifecycle management products, in my opinion. ALM/QC does good in certain areas, such as the quick assigning of tasks to be done, but it falls short in too many areas in terms of being a realistic product to use for the different phases and lifecycle of IT processes. There is a notable lack of cohesion among certain functions of ALM/QC, almost as if separate products were purchased and then consolidated into one product.

Return on Investment

Azure DevOps Server (formerly TMS)

  • Automated testing saved 2 million a year over manual costs.
  • Automated testing ensured quality of code builds if the test did not pass the build did not go forward wasting both development and test time.
  • Burn down provide a visual of sprint status in real time.

Micro Focus ALM / Quality Center

  • Complete coverage of Test Cycle.
  • Excellent Test execution and Defect tracking coverage.
  • No such negative impact. Only thing is, there has not been too much enhancement. It is more or less having the same old features. Not much innovation found over the years.
