Your tech partner
Build, test, automate and deploy your applications faster and more efficiently with Azure DevOps.
Azure DevOps supports a collaborative culture and set of processes that bring together developers, project managers, and contributors to develop software solutions.
What is Azure DevOps?
Software is a critical tool of modern business. Whether it’s built to help us interact with customers, streamline internal processes, or drives operational efficiencies, software has been transformative to the ways in which we work.
Azure DevOps is an integrated development environment that enables you to build, test, automate and deploy software more efficiently. This Azure service is compatible with any cloud environment and platform, blending software development (Dev) and IT operations (Ops) to bring about closer collaborations. Azure DevOps brings automation to your software lifecycle and delivers immediate, measurable benefits.
Azure DevOps provides integrated features that you can access through your web browser or IDE client. You can use all the services included with Azure DevOps or choose just what you need to complement your existing workflows. See the full list of Azure services below:
Azure Boards is the Azure DevOps built-in agile project management and planning tool. It enables easy collaboration between teams through agile tools that allow you to link work items and tasks to your pipelines. Azure Boards also gives you the power to create and track sprints, link backlogs, team dashboards, custom reports, and much more.
Azure Repos provides access to unlimited, cloud-hosted repositories. You can create or import repositories and manage them using your standard GUI or git CLI. Plus, you have the space to enter collaborations, building improved code through pull requests to Work Items and CI.
Test, develop and deploy CI/CD workflows with any platform, language or cloud. Azure DevOps includes Pipelines, the CI/CD tool that enables the build, test and deployment of code, compatible with any language, platform, and cloud. This tool includes Build Pipelines, which allows you to build your application code using a host of pre-defined build tasks. There are also Release Pipelines, which are similar, but specifically deploy applications to servers.
Azure Artifacts is the Azure DevOps built-in package management solution that allows you to integrate with your CI/CD pipeline fully. It’s also ultra-flexible, enabling you to host, create and share packages from public and private sources with your teams.
Test Plan is a tool that enables you to test your application, improving code quality. You can create and run manual tests, choose automated analysis, and collect user feedback.
Azure DevOps enables you to speed up the time to value by automating code builds, testing, deployments, and releases, as well as security and policy checks. It promotes collaboration and transparency between development and operations teams, and automated quality checks lead to quicker issue remediation and higher software quality.
Optimise your delivery pipeline by automating code builds, testing, deployments, and releases. You can also automate security, policy and company checks.
Azure DevOps promotes collaboration using a product-first approach that involves efficient communication and total transparency between software development and operations.
Automated quality checks and verifications enable your team to spot and resolve issues quickly. In doing so, you have greater control over the process and increase the quality of developed software.

Customer success stories
Stansted Airport’s IT team needed a system that would show the lifecycle of the hundreds of on-going projects in a single view. BCN developed RADAR, a SharePoint Online site that gives senior leadership a single source of up-to-date information across the airports' on-going projects.
