RSI has been able to optimize the software development process for clients by utilizing the version control software Azure DevOps to organize each team member’s work. With Azure, RSI can seamlessly work on the same documents relating to the client’s application through their cloud centric design. By moving away from locally stored repositories, we can effectively and efficiently work collaboratively on projects that may contain overlapping files.
When completing work on the same files, DevOps is excellent at identifying discrepancies and creating auto-merge solutions allowing the user to easily keep or discard other conflicts detected. This allows team members’ work to not be overwritten or changed unnecessarily.
Utilizing the Azure DevOps web interface, we are capable of analyzing changes to files and branches side-by-side with the master branch we would be merging into. By clearly displaying the changes, in terms of the files altered as well as the individual lines and items changed, we can practice better code review in less time and can avoid errors that would otherwise be easily missed.
Azure blends seamlessly with RSI Sprint tasks as well, allowing our team to link up our branches and pull requests with the tasks we accomplished. By having this technology in one place our team can easily navigate between our goals, tasks, and progress, along with easily accomplishing tasks and help clients operate smoothly and efficiently.
