Overall Satisfaction with Azure DevOps Services (formerly VSTS)

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.
  • Pipelines and Deployment groups.
  • Git repositories managed as part of ADO.
  • Test plans and work items and sprint boards.
  • It enabled seamless product deliveries by cohesive development capabilities.
  • 15% higher productivity in DEV and Ops teams.
  • Enabled quick turnaround time between different teams.
One of the foremost reasons that acted in favor of Azure DevOps was its all-in-one packed web portal which enabled easy access to all the CI/CD tools and kits. Customizable screens, notifications via Teams/mails, project views, etc. Most other tools/products offer only part of the capabilities but not all.

Would you buy Azure DevOps Services again?


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.
