The introduction of cloud computing has had a significant impact on how ISVs develop and deliver software. Azure DevOps is a collection of services for building, collaborating on, testing, and delivering software to any environment.
In a technology-driven world, developers are at the heart of any ISV’s innovations. Productivity doesn’t just come from great tools; you also need to facilitate collaboration and code re-use across teams. DevOps provides developer services to support teams to plan work, collaborate on code development, and build and deploy applications.
Azure DevOps Integrated Features
Azure Repos provides Git repositories or Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC) for source control of your code
Azure Pipelines provides build and release services to support continuous integration and delivery of your apps
Azure Boards delivers a suite of Agile tools to support planning and tracking work, code defects, and issues using Kanban and Scrum methods
Azure Test Plans provides several tools to test your apps, including manual/exploratory testing and continuous testing
Azure Artifacts allows teams to share packages such as Maven, npm, NuGet and more from public and private sources and integrate package sharing into your CI/CD pipelines
By leveraging Azure DevOps ISVs can get apps with advanced capabilities like continuous integration and easily setup a reliable continuous delivery service for deploying containerized apps to any Kubernetes cluster, running in any cloud.
It also supports deploying apps to an Azure Kubernetes service cluster by using Helm or Kubernetes spec files. These files can be stored as code, using Git as the source of truth for versioning environment configurations as well as applications.
What Are the Benefits of Azure DevOps for Application Development?
DevOps users receive access to new features every three weeks.
Azure DevOps is backed by a 99.9% SLA and monitored by Microsoft’s 24/7 operations team.
DevOps is designed to run on any platform (Linux, macOS, and Windows) and in any language (e.g., Android, C/C++, .Net, iOS apps etc).
Azure DevOps systems support both Git (distributed) or Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC).
Developers can employ the practice of Continuous Integration and Deployment (CI/CD) and Azure DevOps supports them. Azure Pipelines facilitates the automation of design processes, creating test instructions and managing releases.
Azure provides DevOps teams with cloud-hosted services that support application development and deployment. These services can be used by themselves or in combination with Azure DevOps.
