We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
Please share what you can so you can help your peers.
I don't know the pricing of DevOps. It would be much cheaper than ALM because ALM came out as a software product initially. Now they are moving into a cloud and subscription model. In that case, Microsoft is coming from Azure and the cloud and DevOps and software as a service, so it would be much cheaper, but the catch would be that they are trying to get money on all sides, like an operating system, Microsoft Office, or Microsoft Azure DevOps. The good part is that it's a complete package, but at the same time, once you've gone with them, you don't have much leverage to split out into some other activities because everything is interconnected and entwined by that time, and it would be like a monopoly. It won't be good if you try to split out at a later point in time because everything is connected—all our Microsoft products like operating systems, OfficeSuite, MS Teams, Azure DevOps, etc.
I can’t speak to the exact pricing. It’s not an aspect of the product I deal with.
There are additional costs for some functionality, such as increased scalability.
We're not paying a lot for this product. As developers, we have a Visual Studio license which is basically free. That's how their licensing model works. Then we have a number of stakeholders who need to do edits in the system, but not work with code necessarily. I believe they're paying $5 a month per user. We also have users who only need to read things and don't need code so I set that up for everyone who needs it. We're probably paying a few hundred dollars per month altogether. That's a minor cost for us; we're not currently hosting anything on cloud, so it's a small cost compared to hosting a solution. We ran into a few things where we had to pay more because of the number of concurrent building agents. We had capped it low and the developer was unhappy so we paid a little more to get what we needed and that's been good. I don't like it when you get a big bill and you don't know about it.
Its pricing is reasonable for the number of features that you get and the functionality that you can utilize for the agile delivery, which is what we are using it for. I found it extremely cost-effective.
It would be nice if the licensing was a bit cheaper. Our IT team looks after that aspect. I don't deal with tasks such as licensing and payments directly.
We purchase the solution on an annual basis.
Licensing cost per user is approximately $11 to $15. We have about 400 users, but not all are active. We have around 200 to 300 active users.
There is a license for this solution.
I don't have a problem with the pricing.
I don't know what we pay, but I do know what I've seen online. If we switched to JIRA, we will basically have to double our costs because we still have to pay for the DevOps licensing. We're probably spending $100 a month on it. It has only standard licensing fees.
The main agile features are very expensive.
The price is reasonable, but of course, you can find others that are cheaper such as Atlassian. But, if you look at the more serious products like Polarion, it's very competitive. If you have good Microsoft programs, it's nearly free.
This area is very different for each and every organization and I would recommend that they research cost and pricing for their situation.
As a Microsoft Partner, you get a discount on the pricing. Licensing costs are around $80 a month for DevOps, but for Azure, it is about $200 a month.
Price is an area that could be improved. There are products on the market with a fixed price of 50 or 100 people, you are a bucket price. With Azure, you have to pay for every user. It's good to have a bucket such as 50 to 100, or 100 to 200, and flexible pricing. The issue may be from having more than one license. When you procure one license or two licenses, it becomes difficult. It should be easier to procure a license, it should not be one by one. We don't know how many members I will have on my team three months from now.
The price of this solution is fair.
It is a subscription model and I only pay for what I use.
We have 100 users and the cost is $11 per user. There's an additional cost if you want to use the integrated test plan. You have the option to just change your license and you can use the automated test integrator.
Microsoft Azure DevOps is free for up to five users and allows you to track a maximum of three projects.
I find that the pricing is good, and it is competitive with the other vendors in the market.
We don't have any complaints about the pricing.
The cost can get pretty high if you aren't paying attention to what you are doing.
I am not comfortable sharing the details of cost because there may be different pricing schemes, but compared to AWS, Azure is less expensive. So in the pricing in this class of services, Azure is good. It can work well for small to medium enterprises. But this solution is may not be good for those who are not enterprise-level users. Small cloud computing providers have better pricing than the bigger cloud computing providers like AWS and Microsoft Azure and may be a better choice for non-enterprise use. Still, Azure is priced better than AWS. Price may not be the only thing to consider.
The price is cheaper than Jira and some of the other competing tools.
I'm not sure about the pricing. It's not an aspect of the solution I currently deal with.
There is a licensing fee of $6/user per month. That's not too much money for us. There aren't really any additional costs beyond that.
Check out the pricing information from Azure Cost and analysis information.
It is easy to use if you are already familiar with Microsoft products.
Which is better and why?
