[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.

Cons

Microsoft

  • 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.

IBM

  • Its price is quite high and this made it unsuitable for us as we cannot afford such high rates.
  • Its Setup takes much longer time and this is frustrating.
  • Its interface needs to be improved and easy even for the Newbies.

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.

It's a great platform to develop, run, test and deploy the applications easily. And it makes very easier and secure the implementation of continuous delivery process. For first time and experts also can use this service so easily. Great service provided by the IBM Cloud Continuous Service. There are more services that helps a lot to work on it. Thanks a lot.

Usability

Microsoft

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.

Support Rating

Microsoft

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.

In more than a year using the IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery tool, I haven't had any major complaints or problems. However, in the last month, IBM suffered from a couple of problems through several of its services, and for a short period of time, I couldn't deploy successfully my projects. The problem was brief and was quickly fixed.

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.

There's not really a technical background on the decision of using IBM Cloud Continuous delivery. Our CTO assisted to a conference where IBM was promoting their services and offering a free tier. As in that instance the company was starting, every free tier offering was well received, but there was no further research. At the current time we are evaluating a platform change and waiting for GCP to install their server farm on our region.

Return on Investment

Microsoft

  • 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

IBM

  • Speech to text's lack of word recognition leads to improper output sometimes
  • Nodered flow for integration of app is too good
