Test Management or Automation Solution that can be integrated with TFS
We are currently evaluating different testing products that can be integrated with TFS 2012. One of the options is to use one of the Visual Studio editions (Test Professional/Premier/Ultimate), but the budget is going very high (since we are a team of 8 testers). So we are searching some less costly alternatives.
Can you please suggest some good testing product that can be integrated with TFS?
Thank you in advance.

TFS has already test management, requirements management etc..
Best automation solution would be CodedUI. You can look for other tools, if your team skills are not matching..
As Palani says, using Test Professional (for Microsoft Test Manager) for test case management, manual testing, and automated test execution with Premier/Ultimate CodedUI to develop automated tests is the obvious choice because the integration is easy and intuitive.
If that isn't an option for budget reasons, there are alternatives - but they will require someone with serious coding ability to use. The TFS2012 web interface displays test cases and allows for manual execution of tests, but creating test suites and managing automation isn't possible through the web interface - for that you would need to build an interface that works with the TFS API.
If you have someone who can do this, you can use any test product with an API to manage your test execution. Your test tool would need to export results and tests to the interface, which would then post to TFS 2012.
