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.

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 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)

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Azure DevOps is the standard at my company for software source code management and project/requirements management. The cloud-hosted software is being used across all teams to coordinate and track development activities, align release planning, and track work items for testing and verification. Previously we used tools such as Rally and Perforce to serve these needs, but we have standardized on Azure DevOps going forward.

It is being used by the IT Department to manage all steps of the main software development project, and the improvement and integration of the internal TMS (Transportation Management System). Consultants, analysts, developers, the Scrum Master, and the product owner can collaborate and control all their activities, with high visibility of the progress and particular issues. Enabling the Scrum work item template allowed the use of agile techniques and control over a highly demanded product backlog.
