What is most valuable?

I would say that Pipelines is Azure's most valuable feature. Also generally, Azure enables us to create a staging environment through to a production environment in an… more »

How has it helped my organization?

I'm familiar with Azure DevOps in the sense that my group directive has based the administration, architecture, and development on Azure. So whichever hat that I need to… more »

What needs improvement?

Azure DevOps is a very cross-platform product. One of the issues that I have currently with the company is that they are using two different parts of technology. They were… more »

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

Check out the pricing information from Azure Cost and analysis information.

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

I have experience with Amazon Web Services. As the Azure product has matured a lot in the last two to three years, it deserves its market share at the moment. We were… more »

What other advice do I have?

The first thing that I would suggest is to read the documentation for the platform. The online documentation changes pretty much every other week; there is always… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No Visual Studio Team Services and Visual code were the preferred options.

What is most valuable?

Currently, I do not know if there is really a single feature that stands out as the most valuable. If you consider our use case and that we were using Azure essentially as a teaching tool, it was the… more »

What needs improvement?

I have been running reports on the availability of the major competitors in the cloud services to use as a demonstration in webinars and comparison of services. The most available solution on the… more »

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

I am not comfortable sharing the details of cost because there may be different pricing schemes, but compared to AWS, Azure is less expensive. So in the pricing in this class of services, Azure is… more »

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

I used Google Cloud on one of my previous projects but currently, we are using the on-premise solution. So we are hosting everything locally on-premises. We do not have any current cloud provider for… more »

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate Microsoft Azure DevOps as an eight-out-of-ten. It is not quite up to the level of other offerings in some ways but… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have had the opportunity to use a variety of different solutions and it has not really come down to a situation where one is replaced with another. There is an ongoing evaluation of the products as… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable aspect of the solution is the complete tool orchestration within the DevOps. It's great for operations, monitoring, and building tests for deployment. I like the user interface. It's… more »

What needs improvement?

We're quite happy with the tool right now. We're not really using it too much. We are also just starting on it, to be honest, so what we've needed so far we've found that it offers. There isn't… more »

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

I'm not sure about the pricing. It's not an aspect of the solution I currently deal with.

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

We previously used Jira, however, we have not switched over completely to Azure DevOps. We now use both.

What other advice do I have?

I'm not sure which version of the solution we're using at this time. I personally just love using Microsoft DevOps. I would recommend the solution to anyone. Organizations considering the solution… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We're currently looking at VersionOne and CollabNet just to see how they compare to what we currently use, which includes Microsoft Azure DevOps. I'm new to this company. I've been here only for a… more »

What is most valuable?

I like the CD pipeline. It's the most valuable feature for us. It's so easy to integrate into the CD/CI environment. I mostly love that one. The initial setup is quick and easy.

What needs improvement?

The functions have too much dependency right now, so it makes it really, really hard to upgrade and make a change in the code. If you want to use the DPR it's a bit harder due to the fact that it's only 30 days.

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

The cost can get pretty high if you aren't paying attention to what you are doing.

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

We also currently use AWS, however, I prefer Microsoft's solution as it's a bit easier to use overall.

What other advice do I have?

We're partners with Microsoft. I'd highly recommend Microsoft, and I recommend it more than any other solution. Everything is very simple and straightforward. The only worry for some organizations may be the cost. You need to be really… more »

What is most valuable?

What I like the most about this product is that it's free and it's secure. You can easily assign it. It integrates well with other Microsoft products, such as Outlook. If we experience a login issue, it sends a notification to one of my… more »

What needs improvement?

The user interface could be improved.

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

Microsoft Azure DevOps is free for up to five users and allows you to track a maximum of three projects.

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

Previously, we were using Microsoft Excel. We decided to use Microsoft Azure DevOps because it allowed us to assign tasks and get a notification.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution. It's a good tool and it's free. Instead of spending money on premium tools, you can at least start with Microsoft Azure DevOps and then upgrade it slowly. You can learn how to use this tool in less than a… more »

What is most valuable?

Since it is a cloud product, it is constantly updated and not the responsibility of the user. The quality of the user interface is very good. It is a well-integrated product in terms of the development lifecycle. There are different functional areas from the requirements to finish including test… more »

What needs improvement?

It lacks integration with Office 365. It would be very useful if it had better integration with Microsoft Word because we would like to be able to define the priority requirement document and add it to different stages of the backlog. Currently, it is difficult to do this. There are some third-party… more »

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

I do not personally have experience with other products, although the company has some experience with Jira.

What other advice do I have?

In summary, this is a good product but I would like to see better Office integration and API support. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature for us at this stage is the Azure Boards. I really like the user interface. For comparison, I have been using JIRA for several years now, and I am rather skilled at using that tool. The reason for my using Azure DevOps is because my client uses it. My first impression of… more »

What needs improvement?

There is a lack of integration and portability with other tools and products. I would like to see better interoperability with the agile scaling frameworks. When I first started using Azure it was impossible to figure out how to do the configuration correctly. Perhaps there should be a configuration… more »

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

I have used JIRA for several years, and although I am impressed with the interface in Azure DevOps, JIRA still has better integration with other tools.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anyone implementing this solution is to have an expert for every fifty users of the solution. This person is responsible for configurations and so forth. If you have a Microsoft environment then this is an easy choice for you, but if you don't then I think that JIRA would be a better… more »

What is most valuable?

The two most valuable features are Azure Pipelines for DevOps automation, and Azure Test Plan for test management. It is quite easy to create a pipeline, from continuous integration to automated testing, to continuous delivery, performance… more »

What needs improvement?

Non-functional testing such as security testing, penetration testing, and performance testing could be improved.

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

Prior to this, we used Team Foundation Server versions 2017 and 2018 on-premise, and it was a stable solution. We also used the Atlassian stack, including Jira, Bamboo, and Confluence, all on-premise. The problem is that the on-premise… more »

What other advice do I have?

Deployment of solutions on Azure DevOps is a perfect way to provide Disaster Recovery and High Availability. This is a straightforward solution, and I would suggest not wasting any time looking at others. Right now, this is the best… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have worked with other products, and this is the best solution in the market in 2019.
