Likelihood to Recommend

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.

ZenHub

ZenHub is very well suited for an organization where the project teams run in an agile methodology and environment. ZenHub is also well suited if already using GitHub for source control. ZenHub is not well suited for a waterfall methodology organization, nor if team members are not expected to update their own progress in a tool like this.

Pros

Azure DevOps Server (formerly TMS)

  • Allows a great deal of history detail on every issue found or new feature added. It keeps a detailed history of any code changes by developers so you can always see who changed what portion or code.
  • You can adjust users permissions down to a group of users (i.e. testers vs. developers vs. managers) and can get very technical with permissions for each group. The permissions can also be set based on certain portions of the code base not just on the entire thing.
  • The information that is tracked is great. When you find an issue and you log it in Team Foundation Server you have many options for fields to utilize and edit to make sure you get the correct team of developers to look at it. You can also have different requirements for each issue or when checking in code such as changes made, priority level, area and iteration (these are used for internal development purposes usually).

  • ZenHub continually adds to its reporting suite-- that truly allows you to track forward motion and see what issues may be the cause of any delays.
  • Both our technical and non-technical staff can understand and use the functionality.
  • We like the flexibility of being able to provide labels to our stories that can be customized to the way our company does things--- such as knowing if an epic is part of a module or a stream.
  • We also like the flexibility of the number and labeling of the pipelines--- again, very adaptable to our organization.
  • The filtering is very useful--- with and/or conditions, and allows people on different projects, doing different functions, an easy way to view what is important to them.

Cons

Azure DevOps Server (formerly TMS)

  • TFS UI could improve like some of its major competitors with fewer options on the same UI page. TFS tries to offer too many options on the same UI.
  • Development in branches is hard to achieve and TFS has a room for improvement.
  • Integration with non-Microsoft is difficult. TFS could provide easier integration with other product lines to improve acceptability.

ZenHub

  • We would really like the ability to get detailed level reporting by issue.
  • We would like the ability to better view hierarchically epics and their sub epics.
  • when creating an issue, it always defaults to a particular repository, which often isnt the one you want. would be better off if you could specify what you want as your default---- or just leave it empty so you have to pick, since it is cumbersome to have to move to the one you really wanted.
  • A template library for issue content.

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

Based on 3 answers
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.

Almost amazing with a few hiccoughs. Mobile is a big one and also sometimes you want to run a filter or something and the outcome is not what you would expect.

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.

The pricing is very reasonable.
ZenHub is used by companies like Microsoft, Facebook and more. The team over at ZenHub is wonderfully transparent and helpful. They are fast to reply to questions and feedback and are
dedicated to the continual improvement of their product, making them worthy of the max rating.

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

TFS is more robust; JIRA is more user friendly for management

ZenHub

Way better than competition if you use github because it seamlessly integrates without doing anything. You don't need to duplicate your issues, etc. As long as your devs already use github and github issues this will be a no brainer and simple to implement. With JIRA or Trello we were doing everything twice, things got dropped, etc.

Return on Investment

Azure DevOps Server (formerly TMS)

  • Team Foundation Server saves us a lot of Time working together on the same code and reviewing changes of colleagues. We save a lot of time here.
  • Even with very small projects we use Team Foundation Server. Here it saves the time of backing up the source code without adding any overhead.
  • I use it also for my private and learning projects.

  • Saving dev time, making it easier to create a process they enjoy and use without issue (intangible)
  • Making conversations between developers and product teams/easy to facilitate (intangible)
  • Sped up the entire process (intangible)
