Azure DevOps Services

[Azure DevOps Services (formerly VSTS)] is well suited for agile teams. It is a digital kanban for teams to access anywhere at any time. Especially during covid when most companies are still remote, it allows teams to fully perform and still be functional in operating within an agile methodology. It also gives visibility to teams capacity.

Bloomfire is well suited to our 500 employee company, it keeps us connected without being overwhelming as the quantity of the messages sent daily is not overwhelming. Bloomfire is well suited for quick snips of information and questions. I don't think group training would do well unless the video quality was improved.

Pros

Azure DevOps Services

  • Flexible Requirements Hierarchy Management: AZDO makes it easy to track items such as features or epics as a flat list, or as a hierarchy in which you can track the parent-child relationship.
  • Fast Data Entry: AZDO was designed to facilitate quick data entry to capture work items quickly, while still enabling detailed capture of acceptance criteria and item properties.
  • Excel Integration: AZDO stands out for its integration with MS Excel, which enables quick updates for bulk items.

  • It's a Saas based product. That makes the maintenance easier.
  • It has a very user friendly interface which makes its usage simpler.
  • It provides great search functionality, ability to share, bookmark and all key features you would expect from a knowledge management tool.
  • It provides good analytics on various metrics.

Cons

Azure DevOps Services

  • Column sorting when in filtered states.
  • A way to show cross-team dependencies.
  • A customized "From" field for notifications. Sometimes when a mail comes from Azure DevOps the teams do not realize that I am sending it
  • A way to do online poker that doesn't require a plug-in.

  • Customizing the site to our brand required coding.
  • Possibly optimizing the search -- we find users getting too many results.
  • Configuring automatic curation so authors are notified of stale content.
  • Content bulk change -- this would be helpful when a link changes or a product is updated.

I don't think our organization will stray from using VSTS/TFS as we are now looking to upgrade to the 2012 version. Since our business is software development and we want to meet the requirements of CMMI to deliver consistent and high quality software, this SDLC management tool is here to stay. In addition, our company uses a lot of Microsoft products, such as Office 365, Asp.net, etc, and since VSTS/TFS has proved itself invaluable to our own processes and is within the Microsoft family of products, we will continue to use VSTS/TFS for a long, long time.

Usability

Azure DevOps is a powerful, complex cloud application. As such there are a number of things it does great and something where there is room for improvement. One of those areas would be in usability. In my opinion it relies too much on search. There is no easy way to view all projects or to group them in a logical way. You need to search for everything.

Bloomfire is an easy-to-use platform for posting information and asking questions of my peers. It also has a user-friendly search capability. Yet like any other CMS, the secret to success rests in such items as the ability to use metadata to tag content or posts, and Bloomfire provides a wide range of options to make posting content and subsequently searching for it.

When we've had issues, both Microsoft support and the user community have been very responsive. DevOps has an active developer community and frankly, you can find most of your questions already asked and answered there. Microsoft also does a better job than most software vendors I've worked with creating detailed and frequently updated documentation.

I have not needed to pose questions to the support team yet, as it is a very simple piece of software to use, however, its help documents and the bot ready to answer questions let me know I am in good hands. The help center could load a little quicker, but that's my only complaint.

Alternatives Considered

Azure DevOps Services

Azure DevOps is much easier to implement and use on a daily basis than VersionOne. This is based on end-user feedback and my personal experience as well. ADO has more features and seems to get updated more frequently than VersionOne as well. VersionOne is less expensive overall than ADO, but our company prefers to use ADO because it has a lot more benefits.

I have used Guru in the past. I believe that Bloomfire has a greater advantage because number one it is user friendly. Someone who is not so tech savvy would actually find it very easy to use Bloomfire. Also another advantage it has over Guru is the ability to react to post and articles.

Return on Investment

Azure DevOps Services

  • It provides a great IDE to make things easier, clear, and compact. It has always been a positive ROI
  • It's worth the money. I don't think any other software could replace the VS. It has helped us a lot to making things ready on time
  • The only thing I dislike is that it takes a lot of memory space when in an idle state
AMANDEEP KUNDRAO | TrustRadius Reviewer

Bloomfire

  • It improves company accuracy on how we conduct our business with standards and procedures. If this, then that instructions are just a search away. We have to be telling the millions of customers that we have the same information and Bloomfire increases that.
  • Increase sales by having information readily available so that we don't have to get back to customers and potentially lose out on sales because the customer went elsewhere and found something somewhere else where they could get their questions answered.
  • No negative impact in my mind.
