Overall Satisfaction with Azure DevOps Server (formerly Team Foundation Server)

We are using Azure DevOps [(formerly Team Foundation Server)] in our IT department to help us with Agile software development. It helps us to track code changes with various work items like Tasks and Bugs. It also helps to test, build and deploy those changes to multiple environments. It easily integrates with Visual Studio to create a seamless experience.
  • All-in-one product (don't need a bunch of separate connected products)
  • Integrates easily with other Microsoft products
  • Can use git or its own version control with less steep learning curve
  • More stable than Atlassian products
  • No clear-cut way to track items in a release, especially if they are not code change related
  • Agile boards still lag behind Jira in terms of functionality
  • Bamboo and Confluence have nice features over DevOps Build and Sharepoint
  • Agile boards
  • Build and Deploy
  • Test Center
  • Improved team collaboration
  • Work transparency and reporting
  • Tracking our work so we know where we are current project and can forecast future projects
Overall Atlassian products seem to be less stable. Azure DevOps [Server (formerly Team Foundation Server)] also has Test Center and Build functionality built in. This prevents needing a handful of separate products loosely coupled together to get a comprehensive solution to take software from start to release. This creates a more seamless experience for developers.

Do you think Azure DevOps Server delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Azure DevOps Server's feature set?

Yes

Did Azure DevOps Server live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Azure DevOps Server go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Azure DevOps Server again?

Yes

More stable than Atlassian products but not quite as feature rich. I've supported both TFS (now Azure DevOps) and Atlassian products in the past. Nice to have an all-in-one stable suite but you may not have quite as many bells and whistles. I would choose less features over having to restart servers.
