Visual Studio Team Services Customer Stories

Shell logo
“Instead of telling people to wait for 6 months for a new feature, we can give it to them in a few weeks…Our 2800 worldwide developers can use the same backlog, user stories and tests whether they’re on Windows or Linux… building for iOS or Android.” 
Alaska Airlines logo
“With Xamarin and VSTS, we were able to enable the mobile moment, so we can put the right information at the right time and the right context to our customers and employee.” 
Bing logo
“We moved from month long deployment cycles to daily deployments… to 6 data centers worldwide…We (now) see 4,000 change lists a week, at check-in we run 20K tests and the check-in experience takes about 10 mins.” 
Humanitarian Toolbox logo
“VSTS enables us to bring developers into a Humanitarian Toolbox project without significant configuration and set up times…they see the sprint planning and can trace those work items back to requirements.” 
Hawaiian Airlines logo
“Branches sync 500 percent faster. Builds are 400 percent faster, with the typically six-hour process reduced to 90 minutes. We (now have) a highly streamlined process that operates with a few button clicks—and one-button deployment.” 
Black Marble logo
“VSTS provides an end to end solution for us, from the inception of an idea in the pub as you write on the back of a beer mat…until we build out our solution and deploy it into a whole heterogeneous area.” 
Eovendo logo
“VSTS enabled us to focus our time entirely on the implementation, execution and analysis of a complex test suite without the friction of setting up and managing a test lab.” 
Ordina logo
“One of our projects… now running 2 test environments and 18 servers in the cloud that they can spin up or shut down whenever they want, and it costs around €500 a month. That’s an 80 percent cost reduction”
