Modernising ISV Applications with Azure DevOps

Azure DevOps provides a service for ISV teams to plan work, collaborate on code development and build and deploy actions. Azure DevOps allows ISVs to create, improve and optimise products at a much faster and more efficient pace then they can with traditional software development approaches, which are often fragmented and inefficient. This supports a collaborative culture, with a set of processes that unite developers, project managers and any form of contributors to develop software. This blog will outline how Azure DevOps can help your team modernize applications and promote collaboration.

A common issue is that coordination within project planning can often result in important updates, which are vital to the functioning of the application, being delayed for long periods of time, even indefinitely, frustrating the users of the applications. DevOps remedies this ever so common issue by allowing applications to be updated quickly and efficiently through the Azure pipeline. This means your teams will have more time for business focused processes and activities and will spend less time trying to unsuccessfully coordinate the development and operations team, accelerating time to market.

As technology like Azure DevOps is developed, older technology becomes outdated, inferior in speed and efficiency and not fit for purpose like it once was. Entities who choose to stick with these older systems often find the performance and adaptations to be knotty and can cause disharmony within work operations. Lacklustre amounts of innovation will result in lacklustre results. Being highly advanced and modernised technology, Azure DevOps allows users to move away from the legacy system.

As developers begin to target more environments on-premises, on the edge, or Multi-Cloud, they often need to build custom solutions for application hosting, data hosting, monitoring, security, and DevOps automation. Having to generate custom solutions that only exist due to hosting environment changes is unproductive and unreliable.

Sparking innovation to enhance customer experiences and line-of-business applications is top of mind for every business leader. Whether your company is building web, mobile, IoT, or mixed reality experiences, innovation is key to the future success of your organization.

Microsoft Azure DevOps offers a revolutionary way to help ISVs drive, scale, innovate and communicate to achieve business outcomes more efficiently. There is nothing more important than solid, consistent and regular communication between teams, especially when it comes to those developing software and testing so that your company can run smoothly.
