What is Azure DevOps? Your toolset for speedier development and deployment
Change, whether planned or sudden, is often said to be inevitable. For many of our clients, the ability to respond to change quickly is critical to their success. But when the need for a new application arises, it can be difficult to deliver this at the speed required, or with the skills and resources available in-house.
The cloud has opened up possibilities for organisations to develop and deploy applications at speed – and DevOps sets out your path to achieving this. Combining software development with IT operations, DevOps gives you a framework of practices that enable continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD).
At Content+Cloud we apply leading expertise in Azure and cloud-native app development to help you move towards Azure DevOps practices. You’ll be able to develop continuously, roll out apps quickly and capitalise quickly on opportunities.
Innovate more quickly
Azure DevOps help you stay on top of development backlogs and create the services that your data shows are needed. You’ll be able to make apps available to users more quickly, without the need for mobilising a project team or outsourcing the work.
Services tailored to you
Microsoft offers a host of Azure DevOps services and extensions to help your teams plan, collaborate and deploy more smoothly and quickly. We’ll help you decide on the toolkit that suits your needs best.

Simplify your agile planning with tools including Kanban boards and interactive backlogs.
On-premises or in any cloud, you can build and test apps easily across any platform and run parallel across multiple operating systems.
Take advantage of unlimited free repositories, hosted in Git and supported by code reviews.

Deliver modern applications with Azure Kubernetes Service
To build modern applications that are easy to ship, replicate, scale and integrate, developers are increasingly using containers – self-contained environments for running a specific piece of code, letting you distribute and deploy software across your organisation and be confident it will run consistently, everywhere. Containers allow you to package up microservices with their dependencies and configurations so they can be easily reused and scaled up.
In Azure, this is enabled through Azure DevOps and Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). These give your teams a single platform allowing development at speed and scale, underpinned by Microsoft’s unparalleled standards of security and governance.Talk to us about Azure containerisation
