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.

Best DevOps in the market

Excellent piece of Cloud application and highly recommended and very developer friendly.

Pros

Azure Devops is the best product available in the market, 100% integration with developer tools like Visual Studio and VSCode

Cons

Bit expensive and only 5 basic level of user licenses are available to us at anytime, there could be room for more flexible license model

Great Tool for Developers Only

Great for developers only--not a tool I would recommend for anyone outside of an engineering team.

Pros

Azure DevOps has great code management abilities for developers to build, commit & deploy their code. If used properly with the Scrum/Kanban boards, the ability to tie the work to the code is crucial.

Cons

This tool is truly only meant for developers to be able to manage their work and their code. I would not recommend any front-facing users (business or leadership-type people) to use Azure DevOps because it is not necessarily the cleanest or easiest tool to maneuver. The way work (stories, bugs, etc.) is shown on scrum & kanban boards (compared to other tools) seems overly complicated and not user friendly. The reporting & filtering capabilities are also minimal and the result is not ideal to send off to leadership teams.

Devops is a great alternative to other Collaboration tool

It's great for project management. I think it's an effective way for both large projects and small Proof of concepts. I personally found myself using it to manage small sprints on medium sized long-term projects

Pros

It integrates well with other Azure services. You can even have branches setup on the same project. Despite a few aesthetic changes, the UI reminds me very much of Jira and other management software. It's clean and intuitive.

Cons

I want to use it more to get a better sense of the shortcomings but coming from another platform, I find it to have less plugins and add ons than the others. Maybe it's to keep the clean boards and tasks but I'd like more 3rd party options.

Product development in one place

Azure DevOps services helps individuals like developers, QA, Product owners to track the progress of the product on a single page. Once does not have to hop on to the multiple tools / software's to track the product progress.

Pros

One of the best tool for the organizations who follows agile methodologies. Azure DevOps services makes product/software development easy with its user friendly and everything in one place feature. One can priorities the backlogs in Azure Boards and implement the CICD pipelines in Azure pipelines with integrated Git repository.

Cons

Sometimes the connection to the Azure DevOps server slows down the response. Azure boards can be improved in terms of user interface like other ticketing tools.
