Overall Satisfaction with Azure DevOps Server

We leverage Azure DevOps to manage the Agile backlog of one of our biggest internal platforms. The main functionality is leveraged to track stories and move things along from requirement drafting, to design and right through the development and QA. Some other functionality that is leveraged is the calendar to ensure that we are capturing the agile team's OOOs since most of us are from various orgs/teams throughout the enterprise.
  • Organizes tasks with space for all the added context one would need (requirements, design links, etc.)
  • Ability to capture a backlog of items to better visualize a roadmap to help with planning/prioritizing.
  • Streamlines the work being done across a large project team with various specialists.
  • Intuitive to use with minimal learning curve for those new to the tool.
  • It is very utilitarian looking, maybe consider a more personable UI aesthetic
  • Story tracking to see the status of any given task
  • Calendar for tracking OOO's
  • Backlog to understand the pipeline
  • The various fields within any given ticket that allows one to capture critical details
  • It has streamlined the pipeline and project management for our agile effort.
  • It has helped our agile team get organized since that is a new methodology being leveraged within the Enterprise.
  • The calendar has improved visibility into different OOOs across the project team since we all come from different departments across the larger organization.
I was new to the agile methodology when it was first introduced to the Enterprise. Different project teams opted to leverage different project management tools, two of the most common being Jira and DevOps. For someone overcoming a huge learning curve already, I felt that DevOps was easier to intuitively navigate and had a much smaller learning curve than Jira.

Our project team uses Azure DevOps to manage the epics and stories associated with one of our biggest internal enterprise-wide tools. It easily captures all stories in a simples way, creating room to include story points (for estimations), requirement notes, and design links (once ready). Additionally, it is simple to move tickets through the various stages of the process making it easy to tell the status of any given task - the ability to color-code tickets has made it exceptionally easy for me to locate the tickets specifically created for my design team to address.
