How DSoft can help
As a Microsoft Gold Partner, DSoft Technology can help your business plan your Azure DevOps implementation. We can also help analyze, plan, and migrate your existing software development processes to Azure DevOps. DSoft Technology has experience with Azure DevOps implementation.
Azure DevOps offers Continuous Integration (CI), continuous testing, and Continuous Delivery (CD) using Azure Pipelines. Azure Pipelines provide fast way to build and deploy code using stages, gates and approvals to create a deployment strategy ensuring quality at every step.
Azure Boards are used to plan, track, and discuss work across software development teams. Azure Boards allow developers to track ideas at every development stage and keep all code changes aligned and linked directly to work items. Build-in scrum boards and planning tools are used by development teams to run sprints, stand-ups, and planning meetings.
Azure Artifacts is a fully integrated package management used to create, host and share packages with software development team. Sharing code across small teams and large enterprises is more efficient with Azure Artifacts.
Azure Repos offers unlimited cloud-hosted private Git repositories for any software development project. It offers sematic code search with code-aware search that understands classes and variables. Azure Repos offer branch policies with code reviewer signoff before pull requests can be merged.
Azure Test Plans
With Azure Test Plans, software can be tested and shipped with confidence. Azure Test Plans improve code quality using planned and exploratory testing services. Manual testing can be planned and executed with Azure Test Plans using scripted tests organized into test plans and test suites. Exploratory testing is designed and executed using exploratory test sessions by exploring the software without using test plans or test suites. Testing web applications with Azure Test Plans becomes more robust. Test outcomes can be marked passed or failed with ability to collect diagnostic data such as system information, image action logs, screen recordings and screen captures. Azure Test Plans offers performance testing with hundreds of thousands of users.
