DevOps and Application Lifecycle Management
Collaborating to deliver faster
Your customers want more from your app, they want it now, and you need to deliver it. Whether you work in the cloud, on-premises, or in between, or whether you use iOS, Android, Java, Linux or Windows, with Visual Studio and Azure you have a comprehensive set of DevOps tools for your team to collaborate and deliver apps faster.
Automated release pipelines
From continuous integration to continuous delivery, create automated builds and repeatable workflows to keep code quality, get development to match production, and deploy seamlessly. Use the built- in version control or build system, or use your own and easily integrate releasing applications to production and operations faster, more often, and with less risk. Audit progress of your application at every stage of the release pipeline with full traceability.Learn more
Tools for your entire team
Plan and monitor all your team’s work—including operational issues—using built-in Kanban boards. Track work in progress to ensure you have a streamlined channel from idea to delivery.
Automated testing during release
Run automated unit, functional, and load tests in the cloud or in your environments with a simple task. Get test reports at the level of detail you want—from summaries to test results. Run load tests on-premises or use the scalability of the public cloud to address performance issues early in your development process.
Learn from your customers
Track application health alongside usage metrics and application crash analytics. Get powerful dashboards where you can filter for different views and levels of detail—from segmenting data to drilling down to an event.
Any app, any language
Support for any technology
Team members can work together no matter what technology, language, or operating system they use. Use Eclipse, xCode or command- line tools. Build Java, iOS, or Linux applications. You can use Visual Studio Team Services or Team Foundation server to enable transparency and collaboration across your whole team.
