We are currently using Azure DevOps Services to manage the entire software development cycle. Azure Board, pipelines, and test cases are wonderful features in one platform. when you use pipelines, you will have drag and drop choices for quickly building your CI/CD pipelines. Azure Board will help you to manage your project management in an effective way.
  • Azure Board to project management
  • Azure pipelines to automation in your project
  • Azure test cases to manage your test cases management
  • improvement in dashboard
  • improvement in repository access
  • improvement in Azure artifact management
- project management for Azure Board - code management for Azure repo - continuous integration and continuous delivery we have Azure pipelines - Artifact management we do have Azure Artifact - Test case management we have Azure test cases

In my opinion, This is one of the Hottest products right now booming in the market. This has solved lot of problems in terms of Automation and End to End Deployments. In our organization, We are using this for
1. To track Team's Efforts in terms of User stories and Assigning Tasks.
2. Storing all the code and performing End to End Deployment and Testing from Development phase to Production Phase.

This has actually solved a lot of problems which all the Team members used to face few years back, setting the tasks, scope, completion is now smoother and easier for everyone.
We also have the option to Integrate with other software's and perform the deployments which is a huge plus.
  • Azure Boards to Assign tasks, User stories to team members and track their time so easily.
  • Azure Repos used to store all the code used from Development phase to Production Phase.
  • Azure Pipelines - Great feature to deploy the products with End to End testing.
  • Automating any kind of solution/problem on Azure Cloud using PowerShell/CLI scripting.
  • Security of the Third Party Plugins Integrated with the Pipelines.
  • Notification of the Tasks which are getting closer in time.
  • Can Improve in terms of integrating few more required software.
Well Suited:
To Automate End to End Solution on any cloud.
Deploying End to End product with End to End Testing.
Maintaining all the Team's Efforts, bit much in Agile Methodology.

Less Appropriate:
Using Extra Software's when required is bit hard to Integrate.

Azure DevOps is used for project management of our sprint tickets to assign within team and provide the dashboard information to our project managers. The user story is easy to create and assign to the owner and then create the sub-task to assign within the user for different tasks like (Development, Peer QA, Final QA e.t.c)
  • User Story
  • Dashboard
  • Sub Task Creation
  • Reporting
  • Divide sub task and timings
  • Time divide between each task
  • Integration with other tools is difficult
As the other project tool management it is good because of the part of Azure family. Being a Microsoft tools it is quite compatible with the other azure products. Azure DevOps is very useful for the operational project to create all the user stories with the same task including various ad-hoc tasks

Our organization is using Azure DevOps for a SaaS-based code repository and we also use it for tracking our Agile/Scrum processes in our Application Development and IT Operations departments. It allows a central, cloud-based solution for our tracking our CI/CD pipelines and simplifies tracking our stories and features during our two-week Sprint cycles. It is also well used by the QA for their test cases and testing.
  • Project code pipeline service.
  • Good tool for Agile practices
  • Test Plans
  • Clean n clear UI
  • Board could be more advanced
  • Pipelines should support advance tasks like database migration
  • Merging conflicts in tool
Azure DevOps is well suited as a single platform for all DevOps processes. It has everything for a product from the repository, work items board, pipelines, test plans and execution, artifacts, etc. It has also a range of project numbers and pipeline execution time for free each month to help new developers or startups. It is appropriate for teams without DevOps members and standards.

We are new to using Azure DevOps Services, we use a different tool for DevOps. This year, we have started the implementation of Azure DevOps for some applications, especially D365 applications. At the moment, we use it only for Development, QA and UAT, we haven't done any Production deployment yet, however, early next year we are going to start doing it.
  • Easy to create pipelines
  • Intuitive
  • Pipelines sometimes are really slow
  • Support needs to be improve
In our case, Azure DevOps services is well suited with applications hosted on Azure, such as D365, on-premises or custom Applications are hard to implement, different aspects won't work properly. We are still new to using it, maybe we haven't found the best way to apply it.

We use Azure DevOps Services as our main DevOps platform for our IT projects.
The product usage changes from a project to another.
The most used capability is the agile planning tool, for Dev and non dev IT projects management.
We also use the GIT code versioning tools, along with DevOps build/deployment pipelines, in Microsoft technologies based Dev projects.
We are now planning trainings so that we can use the testing tools properly as well
  • makes Agile collaboration easy
  • DevOps made "easy" (after a learning time)
  • very clear and intuitive UI
  • very large set of connectors/integrations/extensions
  • Office 365 integration (Teams and Sharepoint)
  • plenty of training/documentation resources, and large community of users
  • the online documentation on Microsoft Developer Network should be clearer and easier to read, even for senior users
  • advanced configuration is hard to understand
  • product features changes can sometimes surprise you
You can find the whole IT project lifecycle management in one place, including project management, code versioning, build and CI-CD pipelines, alongside with testing features and bug tracking.
You also have very useful out of the box dashboards that can also easily be customized, so that you can follow your project insights.
I also used - and recommend - another Microsoft product, built on Azure DevOps services, that is dedicated to Mobile Apps DevOps management, and that is really useful : AppCenter.

Azure DevOps offers a wide variety of tools for a CI/CD environment and it's really useful. We are moving from a static build model to an automated one and so VSTS has the tools we need to continue growing in the future. We started using VSTS, now Azure DevOps, as a code repository only and that's the main use within our organization.
  • Private repositories
  • User management
  • Security
  • Extensions
  • Some integration with 3rd party tools or services could be better
  • Has a lot of options, but sometimes are hard to find
  • Non standard build/test workflows could be problematic
Azure DevOps Services is a great service. Its function as a code repository is great, and its integration with Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code lets you work in a natural way from these tools. MS Teams integration exists as far as we test it requires an Azure subscription, so it does not apply to the free 5 user tier.

We have been using it for at least 5 years and it's rock-solid in its function and always adds new options and features. We started using it because of its free 5 user private repositories function. Now GitHub does the same (and it's also from Microsoft) but Azure DevOps Services offers more options and tools, so we will stick with this service.

Azure DevOps [Services (formerly VSTS)] is being used to facilitate our sprint ceremonies and is our home to all user stories, features, epic, tasks and bugs. We use it to track our team's performance. We also use it to deploy c# code and is our code repository. Teams are able to access at any time.
  • Layout
  • Easy to access/navigate
  • Very intuitive
  • Rearrangement of features
  • More verbiage around burn down chart
  • Deployment
[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.

Azure DevOps Services (formerly VSTS) is our entire enterprise deployment strategic platform. Coming from a VSTS/TFS background, it's a natural choice. Azure DevOps Services (formerly VSTS) is used for scrum product backlog management, task assignment, test case management, bug tracking, source version management, change review, and continuous integration and deployment. It's a great ecosystem and with git hub acquisition, the product is very versatile and future proof.
  • Microsoft ecosystem with one-stop solution for Agile/CICD
  • Easier integration with IDE
  • UI-based/YAML both pipeline formats supported
  • Very flexible and supports all kind of deployment
  • Should support non-Microsoft and open-source ecosystems in an easier way
  • License costs
  • Scrum boards and sprint analytics can be improved to be on par with the market
  • Notification and workflow customization should be flexible
All Microsoft ecosystem products are well integrated and support easier build automation. Especially if you use TFS and Visual Studio, this is very well suited. They are flexible in bringing open-source software build supports and have a great marketplace with lots of Azure DevOps Services (formerly VSTS) extensions available.
The support team is well trained to help with troubleshooting issues and responds quickly but generally couldn't influence much to bring feature enhancement to their roadmap as we need.

3) Pipelines
4) Artifacts

It is being used Organization wide and helps us solve with our software development and deployment.
  • Azure DevOps is great at managing and securing git repos. Reviewing pull requests and seeing diffs is great. You can even communicate back and forth with your team members right there in the code review screen.
  • Pipelines is a powerful feature for allowing you to deploy to anywhere (cloud, on prem, etc.) You can secure your pipelines and track your artifacts with ease.
  • Boards is a great tool for managing your work task as well as associating your commits with the work item.
  • I love Azure DevOps. I can't think of anything that requires improvement.
It is well suited for managing software development. Code management, deployment, work item tracking. It allows remote teams to work together easily.

Azure DevOps Services (formerly VSTS) is being used by the entire company to provide a solution to continuous integration and continuous delivery. We host our code base on Azure DevOps Services (formerly VSTS) and build delivery pipelines with it. It shortens our software development cycle and helps ensure the quality of our deployment. We are very happy with it.
  • Rich features
  • Powerful tools
  • Integrations with different kinds of tools
  • Clearer logic for each component
  • Provide more example pipelines
  • More detailed documentation
if you need a CI/CD pipeline for your company, especially if you have already been using Microsoft Software Development Suite, Azure DevOps Services (formerly VSTS) is a very good choice. You can build a release pipeline very easily and deploy your applications very quickly. They are also easy to maintain, especially if you are a big company.

Azure DevOps or ADO (as we call it) is used by the IT department in developing and also transforming multiple legacy applications to Modern Microservices based applications and architecture. It enables seamless development by offering multiple tools that are required to develop modern applications in Agile-based methodologies. It enables seamless Continuous Integration, Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) process, and everything is bundled in a user-friendly manner.
  • Azure DevOps bundles all the useful tools together in a seamless way.
  • Sprint boards, Code repositories, Pipelines etc. all can be managed from a single application.
  • Facilitates easy collaboration between technical members and business or product owners.
  • Facilitates parity between different environments by providing a single source of truth for all pipelines.
  • Azure DevOps Sprint boards can be improved, similar to Jira (this can be my bias).
  • Teams and Azure DevOps integration can be improved in-terms of updates of stories or tasks.
  • Pipeline job logs and their web console views can be improved.
It is well suited for large and distributed teams, developing cloud-native applications in a fast fail-fast approach. It will enable seamless development and support different platforms in integrations. It is of less value if the teams are small and located together and also in cases where the application runs on legacy software.

Our company is using Azure DevOps for a SaaS based code repository and we also use it for tracking our Agile/Scrum workflows in our Application Development and IT Operations departments. It allows a central, cloud-based solution for our tracking our CI/CD pipelines and simplifies tracking our stories and features during our two week Sprint cycles.
  • Highly customizable
  • SaaS platform - so no infrastructure maintenance needed
  • Easy to use
  • We have encountered a few bugs and issues while using ADO.
  • Features can be added or removed without customer input.
  • We have seen some of our stories and bug tracking issues mysteriously disappear in ADO.
Azure DevOps is an excellent option for companies looking to streamline their development pipeline and code repository. It is highly collaborative and extremely easy to use. Our company is also using it within our IT Operations department to track infrastructure related work efforts as well and it has been very successful for that as well. Smaller companies may be able to use GitHub and other cheaper solutions for this type of work.

We use Azure DevOps internally to manage some of our hardware projects, leveraging the project management and resource sharing features of the platform. With various clients, we leverage the code repository and pipeline features in addition to project management to provide a full fledged CI/CD development workflow for new and continued work.
  • Full project pipeline service.
  • Good story/task management.
  • Robust pipeline.
  • Pipeline configuration.
  • Multiple-repository management per project.
  • Permissions management.
Azure DevOps provide a great resource when you want a "soup to nuts" approach to building software and tracking its deployments and updates. Using the project board to create stories and tasks, you can easily create code branches in which to do the work, which provides a great audit trail to when bugs were fixed or features completed. By using the pipelines, you can allow automation to deploy completed work, track its history, and easily roll back if needs be.

We use Azure DevOps/VSTS for the entire agile approach to software development at the organization I work for. We use Azure Boards for managing work in sprints, providing us with live features for planning & retrospectives. We use the Azure Repos feature for Git version control of our code and for PR processes, and pipelines & releases for building, linting, and testing code & deploying code to multiple environments via a continuous integration approach. We use Azure Artifacts to host our NuGet packages to be used by multiple projects for code reusability.
  • Git repositories feature is fully featured with a friendly web interface.
  • Azure pipelines & releases are very flexible for CI/CD practices.
  • Azure Boards allows linking work items to code and for a closer relationship between code & the sprint rather than using a secondary piece of software like JIRA/Trello.
  • User interface looks nice but it can often be quite hard to find things that you need.
  • Many features are now being ported over to GitHub, in a more fleshed-out way (e.g. GitHub Actions), after the Microsoft acquisition.
  • Documentation can be limited.
Primarily best for Microsoft dev houses (C#/.NET, TypeScript/JavaScript). Provides all the features you'd expect for an agile development workflow all in one package.

We are using Azure DevOps across most teams, leveraging both Kanban and Scrum methodologies. The tool is used for SDLC workflow, source control, and documentation.
  • Source control integration.
  • Templates for multiple Agile types.
  • Document management (implement something similar to Sharepoint libraries).
  • Streamlined permissions structure.
Azure DevOps, on the whole, is very easy to set up and use if you have any experience with Agile processes. The initial barriers to entry are extremely low as the first 5 users can leverage the tool for free. I found the overall feature/functionality easier to use and more approachable than similar tools. It is also leaps and bounds better than TFS if you haven't looked at it in a while. If you are already a git user, this is directly integrated with git repos, making the transition easy. The tool is also integrated with many other Microsoft products, so if you are a Microsoft-centric shop, you can leverage the broader ecosystem.
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.

We use Azure DevOps for work tracking and our git remote repository. My immediate team of 8 use it exclusively. We host every project we have (15+) on it. It allows us to have all of our work tracked in one location. Since we are a Microsoft Data Platform shop, it integrates well into our other development tools.
  • Seamless integration into Microsoft development tools.
  • CI/CD built-in, very customizable.
  • Lots of marketplace items for integration into various non Microsoft tools.
  • It is not as customizable as JIRA. They are working to improve this. But this is the one area where it is lacking.
If you are looking at Azure DevOps, you know why you need this. It is an inexpensive development process software. You need a place to host your remote git repo. You want to be able to track work and reference it later. You want to build out a full CI/CD pipeline based on commits. This is not a simple ticket tracking system. If that is all you want, go elsewhere!
The self help documentation is really good. But if you need more help than that, you will need to look for yourself.

Azure DevOps is being used by our development department. It addresses the problem of not having a central source code storage location with team collaboration. It is used to store and collaborate on development projects. All team members are checking in/out their source code and pipelines/team collaboration is in use.
  • Ease of use/integration with Visual Studio.
  • Very responsive and easy to maintain a site.
  • Has full Git capabilities.
  • Capability to store unlimited numbers of projects.
  • The price/license per user could be a little less than many of the open-source type source code platforms on the market.
  • Ease of integration with other development IDE's than Visual Studio.
No matter how many developers you have within the company, a robust source code control/DevOps pipeline is a must. When a new software development project is needed it can be initiated within DevOps by any team member/manager. The project can be tracked from start to finish with alerts and message ability directly in the product. The QA team can also monitor and provide feedback directly within the product.
We have rarely had to contact support as the product is very stable. The few times we have had to contact them they have been very responsive and helped us solve our issue right away.

We are using Azure DevOps to manage the workflow for all of our software development teams. We use this software to provide team metrics, identify team dependencies and manage agile boards. We also use the software to manage pull requests.
  • Agile Management.
  • Metrics.
  • Customized Reporting.
  • Scaleable Team Projects.
  • 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.
Before using Azure DevOps, the department was calculating metrics by hand. It was a very tedious process that, at times required duplicate effort. Once we added the online boards, we were able to let the cards automatically calculate dates and provide us with team metrics instantly. It is also great for being able to easily move features from one team to another. Before we added all teams in the same project, it would require us to re-enter the features. We move features around a lot so that has been a big help. I also like the board customization, not all of our teams follow the exact same Agile flow, so allowing each board to have its own columns, states, and notifications give flexibility to each team.
I have had to reach out to tech support a few times and I always received a quick response that answered my question. Everyone was very knowledgeable and courteous when they were trying to help me through my problems.

Azure DevOps is primarily used by our development and technologies business. It is our premiere tool for application lifecycle management. Azure DevOps helps support real-time communication among global teams ensuring efficiency in all stages of the lifecycle. The build and release pipelines help us to manage thousands of customized application releases assuring customers get our critical changes quickly and regularly.
  • The backlogs and Kanban boards for planning and tracking work are second to none. Forecasting and capacity management are made easy with the Azure DevOps tools at our disposal.
  • The ability to customize work items and workflow is crucial to our business. We are in a specialized, highly regulated business with requirements, unlike most software businesses. We continue to strive to keep development and delivery as lean and agile as possible. We are slowly adopting more DevOps principles. This is especially challenging for our business due to government regulations. As a result, we've adopted an Agile/Waterfall hybrid methodology. Customizing the process, work items and workflow gives us the ability to meet our unique needs.
  • Git integration is a key feature and keeps our developers happy.
  • Some of the administrative tasks and management leaves much to be desired. Security and permissions are managed in different places instead of one central location. Alerts and notifications management could use improvement.
  • Due to the nature of our business, we are not able to move to the cloud and must use the on-prem version. While Microsoft officially supports the on-prem version, they are geared towards the cloud version of Azure DevOps. Microsoft support for many of our on-prem needs seem to be waning.
  • Work items should be able to be baselined along with code. While we can label the code that was built, there is no way to take a snapshot in time of the historical state of the work items at the time of the build. A feature like this would save our QA department lots of work.
Although hosting Azure DevOps in-house with their on-prem version is manageable, it seems that Azure DevOps is better suited for development shops that are able to utilize the cloud version. That said, if your medium to large-sized company is like ours and need your ALM tools on-prem, be prepared to invest in multiple, full-time staff dedicated to administration if choosing Azure DevOps. For small companies, both cloud and on-prem versions are acceptable.
Microsoft Support can be hit or miss. Sometimes Support calls go smoothly, other times it seems the support rep isn't skilled enough to handle the issue and eventually, it gets passed off to someone more capable. This is understandable and the nature of support, but it seems time can be wasted unnecessarily as the initial support rep should pass it along to the right person more quickly. As mentioned earlier in the review, overall support for the on-prem version is waning.

Azure DevOps is a common tool used by technical teams. In my capacity I used Azure DevOps to create a Chef Cookbook pipeline for delivering tested code. In doing this, I used it in conjunction with the built in version control system provided by Azure DevOps, but it also integrates well with GitHub and other systems.I also helped others set up pipelines and implement the use of Azure DevOps in this capacity as well.
  • Usability: The usability of Azure DevOps is great! Being a new user, it was easy to pick up and go with this tool with very little requirement to seek external documentation.
  • Integration: This tool integrates well with other systems (ie. GitHub, Chef, etc).
  • Built in activities: Azure DevOps has a ton of prebuilt activities that allow you to basically build whatever you need without writing any extensive code.
  • While usability is great, it did take me a few times to find "hidden areas" (like the visual designer link for creating pipelines). Having these in more defined noticeable areas will only improve on the already great usability.
  • As with other Microsoft tools, the Microsoft login get's a little crazy when you have multiple accounts. In my case, I have several accounts (personal, university, and work) and getting into Azure DevOps with the appropriate account could sometimes be an act of futility.
Azure DevOps is well suited for any platform you are running. In my case, it was a great Chef cookbook pipeline solution that required no overhead or setup, cost nothing, and worked great. It works well with on-prem systems, systems in Azure, systems in AWS, and even systems in Google Cloud. Honestly, it's a really great multi-platform tool in my opinion.
While I did not interact with Azure DevOps support, there are so many online resources to get you acclimated that that alone merits a high rating. Additionally, the usability is so easy from the get go.

Azure DevOps is currently used across the organization. Currently not all groups and departments are utilizing it however we are in the process of rolling out to these groups. Azure DevOps has become our go to application for development. We are using it for full development life cycle, code repository, testing, deployment and verification.
  • Once set up it makes deployments to various environments a breeze
  • YAML backend is a huge plus
  • Large groups can work on the same solution seamlessly
  • More streamlined set up of CI/CD
  • Better error messaging to explain why sometimes a build is successful and sometimes not
  • Easier set up of deployment tools
Azure DevOps is by far the leader out there. If you are a Microsoft shop there is no need to look elsewhere. This will handle everything you have with ease and then some. If you have older code then you may need to build some customizations to make it work but anything recent is seamless.
Azure DevOps has both excellent paid support from Microsoft and plentiful support online. Microsoft has plentiful sites that show step by step how to do many functions and features. The forums are well stocked with lots of useful information and there are many third-party sites that can easily be found to help out as well.

We use Azure DevOps to manage all our projects across the whole organization. The project manager usually translates all software requirements to Azure DevOps and assign appropriate tasks to programmers. It is a very flexible tool to implement DevOps methodology. The project development is followed through the platform, as well as the team performance.
  • Easy representation of software requirements in user stories and tasks.
  • It allows the tracking of activities and team performance
  • It allows interaction between team members in a specific task
  • You can use only a few tools to complement your existent workflow
  • There is a free version for small teams (up to 5 users)
  • Some small improvements could be done in the user interface.
  • Sometimes the performance is low (some requests/queries are slow)
Azure DevOps allows you to start with DevOps methodology in a fast and easy way. The graphical interface is great and it is suitable to small and big teams. It really helps you to manage projects, tasks and teams.
The support is great. Attendants are very friendly and, so far, all requests and responses were satisfactory.

We are using Azure DevOps to as part of our Application Lifecycle Management practice. We leverage it to move code up our different developmental landscape and use it to run automated tests and artifact deployments. Additionally, we use it to manage our resource edge points as well as refreshing servers post-deployment.
  • Easy to use and set up and extendable through marketplace.
  • Highly flexible in configuration right out of the box.
  • Agent allocation and provisioning is very easy.
  • Cost can be a little bit more transparent for agents.
  • More information on their YAML strategy would help us plan better.
  • More configuration options in agents would be good as well as on premise agents.
Azure DevOps is great for daily releases to QA and allowing developers to deploy to their own local environments if needed. Additionally, it's great for use in container fleet management if you want to have instances that can be brought up and torn upon demand based on the pipeline you are trying to use.

We're implementing entire product workflows with Azure DevOps: building, testing, staging and deploying. It's the perfect companion for Visual Studio and Git, so everyone just loves using it. It's a dream come true not having to switch to different front-ends to get our job done throughout the day, while keeping an amazing user experience.
  • Unified environment for all DevOps tasks and procedures
  • Amazing User Experience within a beautiful UI
  • Great marketplace extensions collection
  • Code merging has room for improvement
  • Such a broad set of features can become confusing for the novice user
It's a great way to normalize DevOps wokflows, allowing you to replace lots of different tools and get the job done with a unified package. Testing support is second to none. If you're just focusing on development with version control, than Visual Studio packed with Git will probably cover all your needs.
