Great deployment agent for Azure

We are automating a lot of tasks with Azure DevOps and saving our teams a lot of time doing repetitive tasks. The ability to create workflow like pipelines has saved us days of work and continues to keep automating tasks for us. It is like having another team member doing things...

Pros

My favorite is that their API can be used to do almost anything in the GUI, we use it heavily to store values across pipelines. The other option we use a lot is secure files for our certs, ssh keys and other text files containing important information which is encrypted and not output in clear test. Another thing that I like about Azure DevOps is that you can use it with any of the products that are on the market we use it heavily with Ansible to the point that we are able to get Ansible-tower like functionality without the extra license. Every day the community makes it easier by adding tasks to simplify working with inputs and outputs for example Terraform state file management, Ansible secrets, Packer Image Builder, etc. I can go on and on but the other major integration is with Security where we can scan our code at the time we commit and before running on our pipelines.

Cons

I cannot find a specific con but I can see alerts about service availability about once per month but hasn't affected my usability.

Very flat learning curve means that everybody can start working with it right from the start, learning more complex things along the way. As a developer you have better things to do than to learn yet another new product that should just be there to support the "real" work (developing). Devops is perfect from that perspective.

Pros

Devops is not just devops... it's total devops. A whole suite of things from release management, build automation, time management, ticketing, scrum and task boarding to source repository. I don't think anything is left out. It's all very much connected, which means for instance that creating a new branche can become a new ticket that is automatically placed on a task board etc.

Cons

I don't think anything is missing, but at some points it's not very intuitive. I still have to search every time to get to specific features of my build and release configuration.
Security features are very good, but there too I find myself trying to understand how it works every time again.

A basic functional Review

Overall experience is neutral.
Looking forward if they improve the product.

Pros

The software has many advantages -
1. Complete bundle/package to push a build on production.
2.Can keep all the builds/production code with versioning.
3.Bug, User story, accès rights are very well segregated.
4. From assigning a new user story to making a task and assigning bug the process is complete, you do not need any other software to manage the team.
5.Can be easily integrated with GitHub too(if you have paid version of both)
6.Security wise a good and trustable product.

Cons

There are some cons too which I felt-
1. Firstly the azure dashboard takes too long to load/ refresh (without any wifi/internet issue).
2. Many times it just stuck on a single page.
3. As they are providing a complete package of multiple functionality , the smooth user interface is missing. Literally many times you just have to search for a single things and you will be puzzled in the complete dashboard.
4.If you have a lot of number of projects ongoing and you are part of a big project with multiple members, the user story is not very clear.
5. Options of "not replicable" and many options are missing in bug lifecycle. They should add more lifecycle to task and bugs for better clarity.

Since introducing this to our team over 2 years ago we have seen a noticeable increase in productivity and satisfaction from our executive group. We can better articulate the total sum of work remaining and to be done which increases team morale and strategic direction. Highly recommended for any organization looking to implement Agile methodology within their teams.

Pros

Azure DevOps is the absolute leader for Agile deployment. Agile is woven all throughout the DNA of the system and lends itself perfectly to the process and practices that underpin Agile. The best features by far ar the Backlog and Decomposing of tasks. This is beneficial to any working group, IT or otherwise. The other great features are the reporting and burn down chart which provide real time information for team progress that can be broken down further into it's component parts.

Cons

Not too many complaints based on our teams usage of the product but I would say some features can be quite advanced for a team if it's not fully practicing Agile. It is easy to use what you need to and ignore what you don't want but it can be overwhelming for new users.
