Aggregate your team's work in Azure DevOps and your project managers' Project Insight. Your project managers use Project Insight to manage project schedules and portfolio reporting. Your development teams use Azure DevOps for code and work lists. Now you can pass the developers' work into Project Insight plans for one overall view.
Aggregate your teams' work within Project Insight without spreadsheets
Any project manager will tell you Azure DevOps is not a project management solution. Any developer will tell you they need Azure DevOps to house their code and track their list of assignments. Let's bring everyone together in Project Insight.
Combine multiple Team Services into one PMO
Microsoft provides many solutions from Project to SharePoint to Excel to Azure DevOps, but copy and paste and pivot tables get old fast. There's a better way to roll-up Azure DevOps work into one solution for easy reports, robust hourly billing, and instant visiblity. Seamlessly get the data your project managers need when your developers update their Azure DevOps tasks and user stories.
Your Devs do what they do best: Code
Your development teams already create code and house it in Azure DevOps or similar GIT. They want to mark their task complete and tell you their progress in the same solution. Then they can move on to the next code puzzle. Why make them switch?
Keep developer productivity at eleven while your project managers see their progress automatically rolled up into Project Insight.
Powerful insights for stakeholders
Your project managers have enough to do. They make business decisions based on actual vs planned project data and constantly adjust and communicate project changes. Remove the role of chasing after updates to free up their time for hard resource choices and project prioritizing. Your accounting team and leadership team will love the billing reports and visual updates too.
- Link Project Insight projects with Azure DevOps projects
- Send Azure DevOps tasks and bugs into a connected PI project
- Automatically populate PI Tasks and Issues with Azure DevOps tasks and bugs for status updates
- Those performing the work can send status updates to PMs without ever leaving Azure DevOps
- Project Managers can see comments from the Azure DevOps tasks and bugs
- Time Entries come over into Project Insight from sync'd Azure DevOps tasks
- Azure DevOps users automatically sync to PI users via email address, so you always know who is performing the work
Visit the Project Insight "Get Apps & Add Ons" section of PI Administration to see the PI Integration for Azure DevOps in action. It's just one more auto-magical way to work better together.
I understand that the integration with Azure DevOps doesn't upload time information in PI if the DevOps project is based on the Scrum template (as opposed to Agile or CMMI). Does the time information get uploaded to PI if a tool like 7pace timetracking is used with an Azure DevOps Scrum project?
Thank you for posting your question! To answer your question, the Azure DevOps integration with PI will bring over your "time" into PI as an out of the box feature. This feature is limited to a fairly linear relation of the time from DevOps to PI - the time changes will only associate as Time Entries by the Task Owner in PI, not necessarily who made the time update in DevOps.
Want a more detailed record of time updates from DevOps to PI? The 7pace Timetracker gives value is it will indicate who made the time update in DevOps after that time entry is created in PI.
Let us know if you have any questions from here, thank you!
