Visual Studio Test Professional
Chose Visual Studio Test Professional
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.
Chose Visual Studio Test Professional
Visual Studio Test Professional stands up because it provides quality integration while fostering development and collaboration between teams.
Chose Visual Studio Test Professional
Our dev team is used to developing with Microsoft tools and managing projects with Azure devops server and service. QA uses the same collaborative platform, so it was easier - almost natural - for all of them to use Visual Studio Test Professional, with full integration and …
Chose Visual Studio Test Professional
Visual Studio Test Professional is head and shoulders above the other options we've tested and used in the past. Our Legacy teams were still using Quality Center as of a month ago and they just switched over to Microsoft Test Professional to join the rest of the organization …
Chose Visual Studio Test Professional
Test Professional is a much more rounded product by nature of its integration with Team Foundation Server. Much lower administrative effort required as only one system needs to be hosted.

Azure DevOps is good to use if you are all-in on the Microsoft Azure stack. It's fully integrated across Azure so it is a point-and-click for most of what you will need to achieve. If you are new to Azure make sure you get some outside experience to help you otherwise it is very easy to overcomplicate things and go down the wrong track, or for you to manually create things that come out of the box.

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.

  • 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.

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's overall usability is extremely high quality. It is extremely functional and like all Microsoft products has a user interface that is well designed and is extremely user friendly. Any functionality which I looked for, I was able to either understand immediately or find a user guide online.

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

In my opinion, DevOps covers the development process end to end way better than Jira or GitHub. Both competitors are nice in their specific fields but DevOps provides a more comprehensive package in my opinion. It is still crazy to see that the whole suite can be used for free. The productivity increase we realized with DevOps is worth real money!

  • 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.
