    Product(s): Microsoft Visual Studio

    Visual Studio just keeps getting better and better.

    Overall Comment

    The depth and breadth of the product really sets it apart from other IDE options evaluated. It built upon pre-existing components in our organization.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Test the product first and see if it will work for you. Then go through what all competencies you have, and the competencies that you wish to build, correlate it to the current and future business needs.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Its strong RAD / developer support that encourages more plug-and-play development and less customization and/or specialized learning.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    The complexity of its parts need to be better determined in the working examples available in the vendor's product documentation. The high-level descriptions are fine but the tactile examples are often too simplistic for enterprise application.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    Nothing. The issues I had in the past are no longer relevant.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Adopt the latest versions earlier in their availability (i.e. not wait for the historical "first patch").

    Service & support - overall comment

    When engaged, the vendor has been very helpful in terms of sales and support.

    Integration & Deployment - Overall comment

    Very easy to integrate and deploy.

    Standard accepted installation of a well known product.

    Tool does most of what we need. Road block is internal management not releasing all functionality to users who need it (TFS).

    Some complications debugging in Linux.

    Everything worked out perfectly.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Engage closer with Microsoft and Xamarin.
