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.

Visual Studio Test Professional is best for .NET and C# based development, which is what 90% of our developers and projects do. It is an integral part of the CI/CD pipeline for our custom made Enterprise resource planning tool. It also works very well with Azure providing seamless integration to way more functionality.

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.

Visual Studio Test Professional

  • Visual Studio Test Professional when paired with Azure DevOps is the best solution for Test Case Management when compared to other Testing tools we've used in the past.
  • Test Results and Artifacts are always available with full traceablility for audits.
  • Testing and Release Management are tied together as one continuous pipeline.

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.

  • The user community of the Visual Studio Test product is weak. For instant problems with this product, it is necessary to quickly reach the source of the error.
  • Licence fees need to be more reasonable. License prices need to be reduced so that they can easily compete with free testing tools.

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.

Usability

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.

Visual Studio Test Professional usability could be described as on the same level as other Visual Studio platform products. One very nice thing is the fact that usability aspects are improved with each new release. One example would be the test case navigation, which has been improved by introducing the keyboard shortcuts.

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

We ran into a few problems here and there and had to contact the support team and they are quite good at what they do. The support team professionals were quite prompt in solving the issue as communication never created any hindrance. Also, the documentation is quite extensive and properly laid out so that helped us solve a lot of issues on our own.

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

The visual Studio Test tool is faster than other tools. Since the development and testing processes are in one tool, it is more profitable in terms of cost. It is more inconvenient to write a test case in DevOps.

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

  • One of the positive ROIs of Visual Studios is the fact that it makes producing our work at a quick rate, things like Intellisense make our work get produced at a much higher rate which is good for our return of investment.
  • Testing by the developers has increased by 23%, we now take the time to actually test our product before we send it to our QA people.
  • I am not aware of any negative ROI aspects to our company that have been found.
