"The creation of test plans is valuable and I like the reporting features."
"In Microsoft Azure DevOps, you have a one shop to get everything."
"It is good for monitoring purposes. We are using the build pipelines of Microsoft Azure. They are also valuable."
"Monitoring is most valuable."
"There are a lot of helpful features available for tracking dependencies."
"The most valuable feature is that it brings order to our projects, and we know the status of each one at every moment."
"This solution works with other Microsoft solutions pretty easily. It was easy to integrate everything into all the other tools that we were using. It integrates very seamlessly."
"The most valuable feature is that we can run integrations with DevOps. From a QA perspective and a testing perspective, we can run those tests and integrate automation tools. Then we can run those tests as part of the deployment process. Every time we are deploying something, it automatically runs all the tests."
"The technical support is quite good."
"It meets with everybody's needs without having to grab plugins."
"Polarion ALM helps us better structure our customer requirements, and we can also validate the specs of our products against those. If anything changes on our side, we see the impact, and we can see the effect If a customer changes requirements."
"We had a nice experience with technical support."
"Polarion ALM has some valuable tools for managing our targets and requirements. I think that's its best feature."
"The solution should have fewer updates."
"Its testing features are limited and can be improved a little more. They should provide more options from the testing and build perspective. Currently, we have to use a third-party product for testing. It would be great if it has more than one testing tool."
"The test management section needs to be improved."
"When converting to DevOps, it was difficult to map."
"I have not been able to use the integration with automation features, such as test management automation, with a framework that is written in Java."
"Microsoft could focus on refining the reporting and dashboard elements of Azure DevOps to improve it."
"They have brought a lot of new collaboration features in the latest version. We haven't used those features, but they should continue to expand it more on the collaboration front so that two developers can look at the code and work at the same time. It will be helpful for working from home."
"Its interface could be more user-friendly. It could be simplified for users with no prior knowledge. There should also be better tutorials."
"One of Polarion's shortcomings would be planning. It can handle plans, but the planning feature is very basic."
"We use PTC Windchill, and Polarion ALM doesn't have native integration, so we had to purchase the connector to integrate it with Polarion ALM. We still haven't implemented it."
"The configuration aspect of the solution is not easy. A person needs a lot of programming knowledge in order to successfully handle the job."
"The ease-of-use could be improved a little."
"Technical support needs some improvement."

Reviews from Real Users
Microsoft Azure DevOps stands out among its competitors for a variety of reasons. Two major ones are its ability to forecast how long each task will take and the ability for users to follow the entire development process.
PeerSpot viewers note the effectiveness of this solution. An executive chief operating officer for a cloud provider notes, “We can forecast tasks and the number of hours a task will take and can compare it with how long a task actually takes.”
Carlos H., a product and system director at SPCM, writes, “I think the most usable thing is that you can follow the whole progress of the development process. This makes it very useful for us.”
The world’s first 100% browser-based ALM enterprise solution, which enables seamless collaboration across disparate teams, multi-directionally linked work items, full traceability, accelerated productivity and automated proof of compliance.
