Microsoft Azure DevOps Valuable Features

Senior Director at Cloud Technovation
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 easier way and then get the code and run that. It also has decent pull requests and things like that. View full review »
Director - Quality Management at a performing arts with 1,001-5,000 employees
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 excellent. The solution is easy to implement and easy to use. We've been using their documentation seamlessly. It's been great. I love it because we have Microsoft Exchange Office 365 and we have all those reports already in place (especially if you're using quality reporting). We get that as an add-on. It comes within the package, so everything is very compatible. The analytics on offer are also very good. The solution offers great plugins and has great integration capabilities. It runs on configuration management tools like Ansible and Puppet. The monitoring they have for plugins is also excellent. Whatever you might need, they seem to have it. View full review »

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 DevOps, after using JIRA, is that it has a much better, more intuitive, and more user-friendly interface. That first impression is still valid, today. View full review »

Senior Project Manager at a financial services firm with 5,001-10,000 employees
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 testing, and continuous deployment. It's graphical representation and tools are easy to use. The automated testing in DevTest is the big advantage of Azure DevOps. View full review »

All of the features related to release management are very good. We use release management and dev management, and the dashboard is good. The ability to specify multiple platforms in release management, by using Docker, is valuable. View full review »
User at a energy/utilities company with 10,001+ employees
The ability to interact with various other Azure services like for a deployment or using CICD was very helpful because when we leverage it for Azure IT helps. There's no CICD pipeline available. They provided us with some of the plugins to deploy that onto the Azure IOT edge. View full review »

The CI/CD portal is very user-friendly. The platform is very easy to manage. It is easy to manage repositories between the business users and corporate users. Fields can be customized and the reporting is good. The APIs that are exposed can generate management reports. The most valuable feature is the test manager. Integration is easy to do. The single-sign-on facility is there in every aspect including Azure DevOps, Active Directory, our portals, and all of our development sites. View full review »

The key thing I find benefits me is the ability to track right from the feature and determine what has happened. I have a direct link to the test and the metrics that are available. There are a lot of helpful features available for tracking dependencies. View full review »
