Overall Satisfaction with Azure DevOps (formerly VSTS)

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.
  • Ability to meet strict security requirements for protecting company software projects.
  • Ability for a team of developers to work on the same project at one time and increase the speed of completion.
  • Increase in developer productivity. Prior to using the product, we were using a manual backup and copy process, which would take an additional 60-90 minutes a day for each developer causing a loss of productivity.
GitHub seemed to be more of an open-source development environment and made it a little challenge to keep our source private and onsite at our own facilities. Gitlab did not have the full Dev Ops pipeline and seemed to have a lot of different bugs when using it. We used the VSTS product and continue to use it when it became Azure DevOps and have not had the types of issues described.
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.

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.
