We primarily use the solution for our internal development and we have some clients that require some consulting around some DevOps functionality. We use the product for the development process for the repository, for the tracking of the tasks in the boards, and for the pipeline for CINCD.

We're using Azure DevOps Services for three things: First, for project management, second, for storing the source code, similar to GitHub Repository, and finally, we use it as our CICD build server or build environment, which builds for us and runs tests and so on. In general, these are the three main use cases for this product. We are large customers of Microsoft and we're on a corporate level with them. We pay extra for support. I'm a software engineer manager.

I primarily use the solution for more of an end-to-end pipeline.

It is used to manage our projects. We basically maintain what would be the equivalent of our project schedules for various projects. So, we capture or create user stories to identify elements that need to be accomplished for the delivery of a project and to track who is responsible for it and the level of effort. We aggregate that within the tool and report out to leadership about the status of when we anticipate completion. We are using its latest version.

Currently, we are using it for the continuous integration and continuous deployment of the CI/CD pipeline available for our projects.

We are using the tools in this solution mostly for planning our software projects by implementing Scrum. We use repositories, and create timelines for continuous deployments and integrations.

We use Microsoft Azure DevOps to maintain our project. We create a project in a good DevOps, and then we add the backlog items. The product owner adds the backlog items, and then the development team. The repository is also built into that. We have a private Git report for the project. Under reports, we can create a repository for the big projects and maintain the source code. Developers can commit and make a full request. For example, configure Jenkins, reconfigure Jenkins with the repository credentials, and then use it for linking. We don't use the pipeline available to us, and we use Jenkins for CSC.

We use Azure DevOps as a way to organize our development. As a means of facilitating application deployment from pre-production to production. We use it to organize our environment and identification systems. If you don't have the power or permission to do something, you can't do it. With Azure DevOps, we can create profiles that developers can use right away to go from pre-production to production.

We are exploring this solution. There is not enough protection in the environment at the moment. It's been almost six months since we started the process of exploring the DevOps environment in Microsoft Azure DevOps. We have a customized development methodology so that it is easily marked to our existing environment. Currently, we required that all these systems blend easily in this one environment. We can actually use all the large frameworks within DevOps properly and automate most of our support, starting from planning through support to deployment.

We use the solution to store all our source codes. It's a solution that stores everything. We are an in-house development and we produce a lot of codes. We also use it to control our development process. We follow some methodologies. Every every team has a different methodology, for instance, Chrome, Agile, et cetera. The whole process from the planning process until we deploy the solution, everything is controlled by DevOps.

We are using this solution for CI/CD projects, for Scrum, Agile planning, testing, and business management system solutions. We are also using it for continuous integration, and continuous delivery of DevOps. I am also using the Git Repositories, which is the main source control for me in the organization. We were using it on-premises and now planning to move it to the Cloud. They are calling it repository and they are supporting an old protocol, which is a popular protocol called Git repository.

We primarily use the solution for our Agile teams, however, we started off using it with our executive suite. Our executive team now meets in sprints every day. Sometimes it's a short 15 minutes, other times it can be up to an hour. We have two-week sprints and daily scrums associated with it. We've also rolled that down from the executive. We've got seven formal Agile teams running throughout the organization across our businesses. We probably have at least 40% of our staff now trained in Agile and using DevOps to execute the projects.

We use Azure DevOps to place our corporate servers into the cloud. We perform evaluations in the cloud for clients. Occasionally, we provide a hybrid solution in a specific cloud. For corporate work, we usually use a different cloud. With Microsoft Azure DevOps, as with any DevOps, it is not always possible to identify specific use cases. How do you identify a specific feature from a hundred requirements into a specific use case? It is very easy to lose detail. Traditional teams and ways of working methodically for safety-critical systems are not always prepared to handle that. It is important to be able to handle hundreds of detail-oriented requirements.

We are using Microsoft Azure DevOps for tracking the requirements and tracking the issues. Any issues that we have, are tracked and logged. Also, we check the developer's workload. It can be used for different purposes as well. For example, it can be used by software companies and different software teams for collaboration.

We normally use DevOps. On the application, everything has gone DevOps, however, we don't use the functions. All applications developed there have gone under Azure or AWS. We normally develop them to be able to not be dependent on anything, so if we want to deploy them in another environment, we can deploy them easily. If we want to use it in Azure, we use it in Azure. If we want AWS, we use it in AWS.

I took a part-time job doing a mentorship to guide the students on how to use cloud computing on the AW and Azure cloud resources. For that project, we go through each and every service on cloud computing that is part of the service platform. The new technology is called server-less technology. The goal of the mentorships is showing students how to fundamentally use these resources and explain the advantages and disadvantages of cloud computing over on-premises solutions.
