Good user interface, constantly updated, and the technical support is prompt

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use Azure DevOps for the early phase of software development projects. We don't use it for building the software. Rather, it is for development support. It handles management of the features, the composition, the definition of requirements, and checking our requirements against the use cases.

Pros and Cons

  • "It is a well-integrated product in terms of the development lifecycle."
  • "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."

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.

Helps us to contain source code and documents but it has usability issues

What is our primary use case?

We use the on-premises deployment model of this solution.

Pros and Cons

  • "It helped us contain critical things, like source code and several documents, which is very important to us."
  • "Of course it would be related to customer experience. The solution is not user friendly at all. It needs an expert to use it, although the reporting feature was okay."

What other advice do I have?

When giving a recommendation, I would say that if you are looking for stability, you have to go for this product. If you are concerned with usability and simplicity of the product, I would recommend Microsoft Team Foundation or JIRA instead. The problem is the complexity of the installation and it's not user-friendly regarding the usability. I would rate this tool as six out of ten, with a low rating due to the usability issues.
