Visure Requirements ALM integration with Azure DevOps
Empower agile teams to manage complexity, traceability, requirements and progress tracking by integrating Visure Requirements ALM with Azure DevOps.
Teams leverage the power of this integration to manage upstream definition, tasks, issues, bugs, requests and link them to requirements automatically.
What is Azure DevOps?
Azure DevOps Server is a Microsoft product that covers the entire application lifecycle, and enables DevOps capabilities. The tool provides version control, reporting, requirements management, project management, automated builds, testing and release management capabilities.
It stands out from other similar offerings with its ability to be used as a backend to numerous integrated development environments (IDEs), but it works best when used with Microsoft Visual Studio or Eclipse. With Microsoft TFS, teams can create and manage work items, epics, stories, project tasks, and more to stay on the right track from start to finish.
Versions of Microsoft TFS released after September 2018 are called Azure DevOps Server and Azure DevOps Services. The former is available an on-premises solution that brings the power of Azure DevOps into dedicated environments. The latter is a cloud service running on the Microsoft cloud platform, Azure. It shares the same code with the on-premises version but doesn’t require any setup because users can simply log in with their Microsoft accounts and instantly set up an environment and create projects.
Accelerate Application Delivery Lifecycle with Better Collaboration and Transparency
Azure DevOps issues can be exported and imported into Visure Requirements ALM Platform to facilitate the visibility of these elements.
This way, requirements are bi-directionally and automatically synchronized with both tools-making them easier than ever to collaborate among engineering teams! All this information will also travel back and forth between Azure DevOps while maintaining a direct communication link for easy access by everyone involved in your project.
With its intuitive interface designed specifically around projects' needs; rapidly responding teams benefit from real-time updates about what's happening anywhere throughout their organization or business unit via single window searches across multiple buildings all over world wide web.
Establish Traceability and Control
While Azure DevOps provides the tools needed to manage requirements, the interface and client-side functionality isn’t there. The good news is that the requirements management gap can be effortlessly bridged with a dedicated, modern Requirements ALM Tool for complex products or systems.
Visure removes the need for manual synchronization and increases productivity by automating repetitive tasks and migrating data among similar discipline tools.
Bi-directional synchronization of data between Visure Requirements ALM and Azure DevOps provides transparency, control, collaboration and visibility within teams. Users can access cross functional information in their preferred system with full context to reduce manual efforts dependent on changing customer priorities or development statuses eliminating any need for tedious transfer processes that are time consuming as well.
With this powerful integration, you can easily synchronize any type of item of your selection (such as tests, defects, risks, user stories etc.) and import any or all of them to Visure to gain full end-to-end traceability, as well as, export any type of item from Visure to Jira.
Additionally, access both our issue tracking and agile software development data models to increase your traceability and gain control.
Customize at any level to Your Specific Need & Use Case
Imagine having to adapt your development methodologies to every single tool your organization and team uses.
We've been through that as well, loosing agility, productivity and speed to market because of high and unnecessary tool learning curves.
However, at Visure, we believe in tools having high-level customizations that can be flexible enough to adapt to our workflows and methodologies, not the other way around. Resulting in a lower learning adoption curves, and increase in both productivity and speed to market.
With Visure, you'll be able to select exactly where and how you want testings, risks and traceability to be shown based on the data model you configure and create within Visure, it allows to track requirements down to issues, and from there to the source code.
As with all Visure integrations, you can select which items to be traced within the tools, allowing you to generate reports in any formats for audits and stakeholders, showcasing the traceability of components across both tools.
In addition, you can customize and configure the tool and its integration to fit your workflow methodologies, adapting to processes such a Waterfall, Agile, and Hybrid types of processes.
