Overall Atlassian products seem to be less stable. Azure DevOps [Server (formerly Team Foundation Server)] also has Test Center and Build functionality built in. This prevents needing a handful of separate products loosely coupled together to get a comprehensive solution to take software from start to release. This creates a more seamless experience for developers.

At the time we brought Azure DevOps in-house it really was the only game in town. Our company migrated from Visual SourceSafe to TFS to Azure DevOps without any issues or downtime. Git isn't overly intuitive so I never recommend it and shy away from it. I loved it when Microsoft gave MSDN subscribers a free local version for in-home use but that seems to have gone by the wayside. Still, your choice is Azure DevOps or Git.

Azure DevOps has a
  • backlog module which is a substitute for Jira / Trello
  • pipeline module which is a substitute for Jenkins / TeamCity
  • artifact management module which is a substitute for Artifactory
  • test case management module unmatched by the above
  • dashboards and reporting module unmatched by the above
(an end to end SDLC solution similar to how GitLab is)

I was not involved in the purchase decision for this product. Since I have started working at my company, we have always used [Azure DevOps Server]. So I can't comment on how it performs vs its competitors. I have used many project management tools that are not as robust, but I didn't list them here since they are not direct comps.

The other ALM tools I've used and administered are Rational ClearCase and ClearQuest, HP Quality Center and Microsoft Source Safe. While Rational ClearCase and ClearQuest are excellent tools in their own right. I find that TFS does the best with integrating all aspects of the ALM in one place.

I've used and currently use Jira, which is a similar software to Azure DevOps Server. Azure DevOps Server is more detailed and comprehensive than Jira. They both offer many of the same features and capabilities but Azure has a better overall interface and is more in-depth. It is also very user-friendly.

Azure DevOps Server is a fantastic tool and my favorite for organization and management of large application building projects. It was selected for its ease of use with a user-friendly design that allows any team members, particularly outside of developers, to quickly get up to speed and see visually where the project is headed. It also is a Microsoft tool so there is trust with the name.

Microsoft Azure DevOps is the one that integrates everything you can possibly use and provides a solution that eases your developing process. It has a strong support community and well-written documentation. No matter what you do, you will always find the right pipeline. It is also very stable and performs well.

I haven't used other products like Azure DevOps server other than the previous version of Team Foundation Server (TFS). This is definitely an improved and upgraded version with Azure, and the pros definitely outweigh the bad. We are continuing to stay innovative and delivering products and projects while aligning with the changing needs of technology.

Azure DevOps server has quite an upper hand while we compare it with other tools in the market. Its not just a tool in fact its been a complete suit. If we look out at other products available as alternative options to Azure DevOps Server, they are meant for a specific purpose and hence always need to be integrated with some other tool for achieving the target. While Azure DevOps integrates within itself all features and utilities required to deliver the code from developer machine to the production environment.

TFS gives and edge over JIRA for inbuilt version controlling that TFS has. TFS provides a GIT version control repository that offers centralized TFVC and distributed GIT Version control. Version controlling is a key feature that promoted TFS over JIRA in the implementation of a decision making process.

The advantage of Team Foundation Server is the integration capability with Microsoft technologies and products, such as Visual Studio. Although this is an important consideration, Team Foundation Server is not a straightforward tool and needs to be improved to work seamlessly and to became more reliable. If you are using programming languages and tools that are not from Microsoft, perhaps Team Foundation Server will not stack up against other technologies.

Git and GitHub are very popular right now and they are OK. But they do not integrate automated Testing and Building... The Work Item Management of Jira is about as complicated as the one of TFS so we use Trello. The other Source Control Systems are more complex to use because the integration into Visual Studio is not as good.

The JIRA integration with Bitbucket is a little nicer for sure, since they're both Atlassian products. Still, the Visual Studio and Azure integration with TFS made this a no-brainer for me.

Price-wise they are similar but you get a lot more with your TFS subscription. For the automated builds and deployment logic alone, it's worth it.

I have only previously used Visual Source Safe, back in the early noughties within a very small development team, TFS is the natural evolution from Visual Source Safe which primarily was just a repository for source code. You can't really compare the two and MS released TFS as a complete replacement for Visual Source Safe.

While TeamForge was a very competent product, we found (back end) administration of it was not for the feint of heart and it was a seperate entity to our test system. Team Foundation Server is more in line with our administration skill set and has brought testing under the same product.

Is TFS the right tool?

Based on the fact we are Microsoft shop, it makes sense and it has an great integration to RM for code release. At the time it was the best decision for what we needed as a team. If it were up to me, moving to Git would be the right direction. It is less costly and it is better, especially for remote employment or for developers that travel a lot. Since Git is Open Source you can find a community that has developed many good tools to interface with it. For die hards they can use command line.
