Microsoft Introduces Azure DevOps Project
In today’s world, organizations need to innovate and get to market faster. This requires learning latest technologies, using them in your product and deploying at a faster pace.
Adopting Azure is one such scenario. Existing on-premise apps are getting migrated to Azure and new applications are getting developed to take advantage of Azure services. But there are multiple challenges that can slow down the learning and implementation. For example, which Azure Resource to use, how to create and configure it, how to deploy an app to the newly created resource. The deployment steps themselves differ based on the choice of Azure resource and the framework used for developing your application. Similarly, for getting your application in the hands of customers faster you need a DevOps pipeline and a setup to monitor the app.
We are happy to announce the public preview of Azure DevOps Project. Azure DevOps Project helps you launch an app on an Azure App Service of your choice in a few quick steps and set you up with everything you need for developing, deploying, and monitoring your app. Creating a DevOps Project provisions Azure resources and comes with a Git code repository, Application Insights integration and a continuous delivery pipeline setup to deploy to Azure. The DevOps Project dashboard lets you monitor code commits, builds and, deployments, from a single view in the Azure portal.
Key benefits of a DevOps Project:
- Get up and running with a new app and a full DevOps pipeline in just a few minutes
- Support for a wide range of popular frameworks such as.NET, Java, PHP, Node, and Python
- Start fresh or bring your own application from GitHub
- Built-in Application Insights integration for instant analytics and actionable insights
