  • Hi Chris,

    This will depend on your situation. Usability is the main issue.
    If you are a developer with TFS integrated into Visual Studio then stick with that.
    But if you are a help desk user or project manager (depending on how you use JIRA) then the JIRA interface is likely to be much easier and more intuitive.

    But both are excellent products. The attraction with JIRA for many companies is the ease of logging timesheets against work items – something that TFS still lacks.

    Cheers,
    Craig

  • We have multiple projects in our JIRA installation, some for support tickets, others for management of our third party products and another project for our internal development. TFS is the source control tool we are using for internal development, which has us duplicating creation of stories in JIRA and work items in TFS. We would love to see Atlassian build a plugin to TFS like they have for Subversion!

  • Recently Microsoft came in and did a demo of TFS 2010 … Pretty impressive. This is the direction we will be going… such a plugin is no longer a nice to have but a real need.
