Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The user interface is very friendly.""It's graphical representation and tools are easy to use.""All of the features related to release management are very good.""My first impression of DevOps, after using Jira, is that it has a much better, more intuitive, and more user-friendly interface.""Technical support has been excellent. On that side, Microsoft is very good. The customer support of Microsoft has really improved this past year. On the cloud side also we are very satisfied because it offers very good support.""Azure enables us to create a staging environment through to a production environment in an easier way and then get the code and run that.""I like the entire tool because it is a one-stop-solution for DevOps.""The solution is easy to implement and easy to use."

"It makes work visible, so everybody knows where everything is. It uses Kanban, and that makes work visible.""We use the board and card hierarchies in terms of sprints so that we can see if we have cross-functional teams that are working on the same projects together, especially when projects have dependencies. The parent-child relationship within cards is really nice so that we can see what kind of dependencies there are when we're trying to get projects finished.""My team specifically uses our board for all of our Remedy tickets that come in. We had a card for every ticket that we get, and we're able to add the link to that specific ticket there.If I'm out of office, for example, and someone else needs to work a ticket or someone is being contacted to work on a ticket, I don't have to sign on it. Someone else can easily access that ticket because I put the link in there. It's nice. It has a lot of great functionality in there."

Cons
"I would like to see more customization available to the administrator.""Non-functional testing such as security testing, log testing, and performance testing can be improved with a better visualization.""Better integration with the Linux operating system would be an improvement for this solution.""I would like to see better interoperability with the agile scaling frameworks.""They do very frequent releases, there's a complete change in UI kind of stuff. Sometimes it feels like they change it too often.""The solution could work to improve their reporting.""There are certain areas in Azure DevOps that are better in other products.""One thing I would note is that it's hard to know what is included or not in the product. Especially when you begin to try and compare it to other solutions. When you go to a site like VersionOne, they tell you Azure DevOps doesn't have this or that, and when you go to Microsoft, it says VersionOne doesn't have this or that. They could do a better job of laying out exactly what is on offer so customers know going in exactly what they'll get."

"I do not know what it can do in the area of scrum. Maybe it has that functionality. I have never tried to set it up. You think of LeanKit from the perspective of Kanban. I don't know if there is a template for scrum, a scaled agile framework, or any of those scaling frameworks.""Being able to track actual time on cards or sprints, instead of using just the planned start and stop date, would also be useful. I would like to see something like JIRA has with actual sprint starts and stops.""The ability to report on customizable fields and third-party extensions needs improvement. I'd like to see more of those being able to be used. I don't know how that works for Planview, but just getting a little bit more added there would be nice."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It's a good tool, quite rich, it has a lot of features, and quite a lot of analytical capabilities which are built on top of it so that you can see how your projects are going and all that stuff. It's a good tool.""There is a licensing fee of $6/user per month.""The price is cheaper than Jira and some of the other competing tools.""It is the least expensive product in this class.""I find that the pricing is good, and it is competitive with the other vendors in the market.""Microsoft Azure DevOps is free for up to five users and allows you to track a maximum of three projects.""It is a subscription model and I only pay for what I use.""The price of this solution is fair."
