More and more projects are being carried out agilely. As a result, the requirements for project management tools change. Microsoft has placed a helpful tool on the market with the advancement of Azure DevOps, the successor to Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS). As a successor to VSTS, Azure DevOps' proximity to software development projects is obvious. It is easy to overlook the fact that Azure DevOps has a lot to offer even for non-software projects due to its modular design and the support of all the essential phases of agile projects.
What is Azure DevOps?
Microsoft Azure DevOps is a tool that supports software development teams throughout the development cycle, from request capture to implementation and testing to automated deployment. The name DevOps is derived from the abbreviations Development (Dev) and Operations (Ops) and is regarded as one of the major megatrends in the industry, which is attracting increasing attention. This trend is underscored by studies that show enormous efficiencies by implementing DevOps. According to the “State of DevOps Report 2018”, the top group achieves 46x more frequent deployments, 2555x faster lead time from commit to deployment, 7x lower error rates, and 2604x faster bug fixes.
