Microsoft Azure DevOps Review

Easy to onboard and use, with complete integration between pipelines and testing

What is our primary use case?

I am a consultant and this is one of the tools that I use to help develop solutions for my clients.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the complete integration between test cases, pipelines, and issue management.

What needs improvement?

The test management section needs to be improved. It is easy to use but they can make changes such that it is more comfortable for the users.

I would like to see a full-quality dashboard added. For example, if I am not using their pipeline then I would still like to see the dashboard available.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Azure DevOps for more than two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have found it stable, so far.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This product is very scalable. I am currently using it for about 10 users and if I want to add more then I have to pay more money.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not yet been in a position where I needed technical support for this product. In the past, I have dealt with Microsoft's technical support for other products and I have found them to be fine.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have also worked with similar tools such as GitLab, GitHub, Bitbucket, and then Jira.

Because I am a consultant, I work with multiple tools and the choice is that of my client.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I find that the pricing is good, and it is competitive with the other vendors in the market.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is considering Azure DevOps is that it is quite easy to onboard. It is a good product if you really want to work in a close-knit environment.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Microsoft Azure
