The integration with Git needs improving because it is a bit disjointed and unpredictable.The pricing of this solution should be lowered.We would like to be able to easily integrate this solution with our continuous integration tools, such as Jenkins.The documents on the Microsoft website are not very useful, and they ought to make it easier to find answers.The database administration could be better; you should be able to choose new tools with the development environment in Visual Studio. It could be easier to use.The data flow can be improved.Enhancing the support for web application testing and load performance would be an improvement.The service right now is far too expensive.
