When selecting tools, there are many things you should consider - prices, value added, integration cost, health ...
However many teams forgot to check how well does the tool integrate with your current development process. A good tool that does not play well with your process will cause many problem and might alter your process a direction you don't want.
For example, we have a process (like many others probably) which involves code reviews. We have a tool with does not play well with code reviews - it has binary projects. The process with this tool is different, much slower and more error prone than the rest of the tools.
Next time you pick a tool to work with, think how well will it play with your current process and take it into consideration.
Note: It might be OK to change the process if the tool is worth it, just make sure it does before you integrate it.
