Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable feature is the user-friendly interface.""It is good at requirements management and test management."

More Jama Connect Pros →

"The work item feature is most valuable. It allows us to store all product requirements. We can also link the test cases to those requirements so that we know which feature has already been tested, and which one is waiting for testing. We can also couple the code reviews, unit tests, and automated tests into these requirements. It is reliable. It has all the features and good performance. It also has reporting tools or analysis tools.""The most valuable feature is the backlog.""The most valuable feature is simplicity.""It's is a very stable solution.""Good branching and labelling features.""The solution is very much stable.""Basically, the capacity to construct various products is something I find handy.""As far as queries are concerned, creating, grading, or customizing the queries as a primary requirement is very easy to do."

Cons
"The initial setup could be better, it's complicated.""I have inquired about pricing for this solution but have not yet heard anything, so their response time in this regard is something that should be improved."

More Jama Connect Cons →

"The dashboard and the customization of dashboards is an area they have to work on.""It has been really dated. When you start to work more in an agile environment, it is not really that flexible. They tried to replicate the look and feel of Jira, but it is not quite there. It was nice to use in the past, but it is not as flexible now with the changing development environments and methodologies.""The execution of test cases could stand improvement.""This solution is quite old and it is already being bundled as Azure DevOps Server.""The interface can be improved and made more user-friendly.""The usability of TFS is not that great.""They should have design patterns in TFS for the development team, and design patterns for the QA.""The user interface could be improved to make it simpler and increase usability."
