Azure DevOps Server (formerly TMS)

Azure DevOps is well suited if you have a big team that is collaborating their codes and need to have devops pipeline for all build and release work. Also since this tool provides bug management facility, you don't need to purchase any other tool for that purpose. Moreover if you have your infrastructure built over Azure cloud then this is a best match for your requirements as it integrates well with it.

Quality Center

Quality Center is well suited for product based companies rather than service industry. The effectiveness of usage is more in product development projects. Defect maintenance and reporting in product development projects will have tailored outcomes. The report extraction is another feature which provides overview of the current project status.

Service industry - majorly the tickets raised will get unnoticed if the volume of tickets are huge and monitoring will be difficult.

Pros

Azure DevOps Server (formerly TMS)

  • The consolidation of issues is extremely useful for us. Having one place where all bugs are entered has helped our business process immensely.
  • Being able to query data regarding user stories, bugs and code is extremely helpful. As well, using the visual tools built into the system can help with messaging regarding the status of a project.
  • Being able to monitor code deployments is extremely helpful. Since we are managing multiple environments, this tool makes it easy to see what is happening where.

Quality Center

  • Easy to track defects within our Agile release cycle passing them from developers to project managers to the testing team
  • Gives us visibility into previous release cycles and plan our future iterations
  • Should give us the ability to make regression testing easier

Cons

Azure DevOps Server (formerly TMS)

  • The older versions of TFS are more lacking in the web version-- if you aren't updated to 2015 or above I believe, a lot of the web features are not available (like bulk update). You really have to keep up to date with TFS for the best features, and it's no simple task to migrate your entire instance of TFS from an older version to a newer version.
  • VSTS is supposed to be a virtual version of TFS that we've been looking into, but it severely limits customization options for ticket templates and workflows. It would be nice for VSTS to eventually carry that customization over so we could feel more comfortable switching to "the cloud" so to speak.
  • Queries are a very powerful tool, but normal business users struggle to understand how they can best utilize this tool to analyze tickets. Because of the permissions structure in all companies I have been a part of, I've never been able to save my custom queries to a public folder in TFS for business/project users. Instead, I have to take time to train these users and give them guidance on how to best create queries for their needs. This is admittedly a business process issue, but it could potentially also be resolved with some good training/guidance around queries provided by TFS themselves.

Quality Center

  • Quality Center has a lot of room for improvement for reporting and analysis. Because it does not provide crystal clear reports by itself, we have a separate team that creates dashboards from Quality Center data. Some basic business and analytic reports should be available by default that can be published on the intranet so that anyone can view them. The software mandates a user to login and create reports, which is not practical for anyone in senior management.
  • Quality Center is run as a web based EXE tool. It is appreciable how it has been implemented, but there is a little lag because of this.
  • It does not let a user save a defect template. This results in tremendous redundancy of work. In a large scale organization, we are creating tools to minimize these efforts. A shortcut to save multiple defect templates helps testers avoid redundancy and focus on their own business functions.

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.

Because it lets me track the test cases with detailed scenarios and is clearly separated in folders. Also the defect filter helps me filter only the ones that have been assigned to a particular area of interest. The availability of reports lets me see the essentials fields which I might be missing the data on and helps me to work on these instead of having to go through everything.

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

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

Alternatives Considered

Azure DevOps Server (formerly TMS)

No tool was all encompassing - always one tool for code management and a separate tool for Requirements and test cases. Testing tools such as HP did not have a code module so code and defects were in two separate tools. Code repositories such as source save do not have a defect module so code cannot be directly linked.
Roxanna Aramjoo | TrustRadius Reviewer

Quality Center

HP is unique in its own way. We chose HP because it is standard and an end-to-end solution. However, we also use other tools for the same work that we currently do. HP is good for waterfall projects. It has an excellent defect management module.

Return on Investment

Azure DevOps Server (formerly TMS)

  • Time to completion for projects has significantly gone down by 15% and that number changes as more people are trained and are comfortable with TFS.
  • Change Management and Approvals are easier to access.
  • More projects are implementing SCRUM methodologies for applications
Tiffany Seeman | TrustRadius Reviewer

Quality Center

  • We have faster delivery of products with high quality and significantly less labor costs.
  • Improved operational efficiency by measuring and reporting key performance indicators (KPIs).
  • Best practices can be shared across multiple divisions and lines of businesses. This provides a good start for new projects and prevents reinventing the wheel all the time.
