A big announcement from Microsoft this month: The introduction of Azure DevOps, the most complete offering of proven, modern DevOps tools and processes available in the public cloud. Used together, the Azure DevOps services span the entire breadth of the development lifecycle so enterprises can modernize apps in a faster and more streamlined way.

What Is DevOps, Anyway?

DevOps solutions bring together people, processes, and technology, automating and streamlining software delivery to provide continuous value to your users.What is DevOps?

If you want your next development or app modernization project to be a success, DevOps is the way to go.

High-performance DevOps enterprises achieve increased revenue with a faster time to market and produce solutions that are more powerful, flexible, and open. (Yes, Microsoft has been partnering with the open-source community to ship products that work for everyone.) New features can be safely deployed to users as soon as they’re ready vs. bundling them together in one large update down the road.

New Services & Tools in Azure DevOps

  • Azure Pipelines – Continuously build, test and deploy to ANY language, platform, or cloud.  Azure Pipelines offers unlimited build minutes and 10 free parallel jobs for all open-source projects!
  • Azure Boards – Plan, track and discuss your work and ideas across teams with proven agile tools.
  • Azure Artifacts – With the click of a button, add artifacts to your CI/CD pipeline.
  • Azure Repos – Unlimited private Git repos (cloud-hosted) allow team members to build and collaborate better.
  • Azure Test Plans – These manual and exploratory testing tools will allow you to test and ship with ease and confidence.

Azure DevOps is what’s next for Visual Studio Team Services. VSTS users will be automatically upgraded without jeopardizing functionality.

With the services provided with Azure DevOps, you can choose the tools and cloud services that you want to use and build end-to-end solutions for an enterprise-level toolchain. As long-time believers in both Azure and DevOps, we’re really excited about this offering and what it can offer our clients.
