Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Complete traceability as per process requirements.""It's a good tool to manage software versions, update the status, and manage tasks.""The most valuable feature is traceability starting from the requirements until the end of a project.""The tool is quite structured and has a good command set."

More PTC Integrity Pros →

Cons
"I would like to see better integration from the architectural side.""There are not enough reports. People would like to see something similar to what is available in JIRA.""We are unhappy because everything that we needed required customization and this is not a plug-and-play type of solution at all.""It's not easy to plan on this solution and it's not user-friendly. The interface should be more like a web interface. It's not easy to use."

"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.""There should be management of the project built-in.""Currently, we are looking for a solution with which we can incorporate third-party development sites or third-party project teams into the system. Because it is on-premise, it is a bit problematic because we need to have a VPN or something else in the system. A cloud-based solution would be better for us, and that's what we are looking for. Our biggest problem is the external connection, which, of course, is limited by our own IT. It would be good to have some kind of publishing service for this external connection. It might be there, and it might be that our IT is making it impossible for us. Its template editor could be easier to use. Currently, customizing the project templates according to your needs requires some work.""The program and portfolio planning facility can be improved.""Integration from Visual Studio could be improved.""The usability of TFS is not that great.""There are many things that I cannot do, and I have a lot of bugs.""The project management side should be addressed and the project and release planning should be somewhat extended."

    Top Answer: 
    TFS and Azure DevOps are different in many ways. TFS was designed for admins, and only offers incremental improvements. In addition, TFS seems complicated to use and I don’t think it has a very… more »
