By engaging with Assemblysoft for your Azure DevOps pipeline requirements you will not only gain from deterministic release cycles but also improve your processes and workflows, each and every iteration, as we leverage our real world experience to enable you to automate and further innovate as we feed back into the pipelines the retrospective insights gained and listen to your valued input.
Your workflow becomes more robust, smarter and let's you focus on adding value to your products without the pain of releasing to production, resulting in happier customers!
We are so confident in our Azure DevOps approach that we use the same technologies, methodologies and philosophies in our own business, as we do on behalf of our clients. At Assemblysoft we’re proud to have designed some complex and demanding build and release pipelines for our customers, gaining some deep insights, having utilised a vast array of resources inside Microsoft Azure and Azure DevOps.
There are five core areas to our DevOps approach at Assemblysoft that, when combined result in minimum effort for maximum value, delivering safely, early and often.
DevOps brings benefits across the development, delivery and operations life cycle, but adoption carries real risks if businesses view it simply as a technology solution and ignore the people aspects. Without leadership, collaboration and internal buy-in, DevOps can even prove counterproductive, by slowing down processes, stifling innovation, creating siloes and building products that don’t respond to market needs.
When the right behaviours become second nature across the business, DevOps will greatly contribute to creating an agile, value driven culture that can adapt to the rapidly-changing world around you.
At Assemblysoft our DevOps approach, having utilised Micosoft Azure and Azure DevOps from it's inception in the real world, along with a rich portfolio of engineering services can provide both capability and capacity to your business enabling agility and speed that you can pass onto your customers.
The term DevOps is a combination of two terms: development (Dev) and operations (Ops). This term was created as a way of combining software engineering, operations culture, and practices to unify software development and software operations. The primary goal of DevOps is to strongly integrate automation and monitoring at all steps of the software development life cycle (SDLC), from integration, testing, releasing, to deployment and infrastructure management. DevOps aims to shorten development cycles, increase deployment frequency, and add quality with dependable releases, all in close alignment with business objectives.
Consider Azure DevOps and CI/CD processes for:
The data flows through the scenario as follows:
The need for DevOps has grown out of the increasing success of Agile software development, which has led to organisations, just like yours, realising the need for releasing applications and services more rapidly and at higher velocity. As companies seek to overcome the constraints put on their release management processes, it becomes clear there is a real need to adopt processes that can support application release automation, continuous integration (CI) tools, and continuous delivery (CD).Let's talk about DevOps
Let Assemblysoft assist you, with moving to Azure DevOps or enhancing your existing development processes with automation, to gain a major advantage, huge cost reduction and peace of mind for your entire organisation whether large or small.

2: Server-Side Processing with Azure: Blazor can run on the server-side with Blazor Server. Azure provides a robust and scalable environment for hosting Blazor Server applications, ensuring high performance and reliability.We can integrate your design into the application code base, to deliver a user interface (UI) and user experience (UX) that compliments your brand, providing delight to your users.
3: Client-Side WebAssembly with Azure Static Web Apps: For Blazor WebAssembly applications, Azure Static Web Apps is a perfect hosting solution. It allows for client-side Blazor applications to be served efficiently, along with other static assets, while also providing features like serverless APIs, automated CI/CD, and global distribution.
4: Security and Identity Services: Azure Active Directory and Azure AD B2C can be easily integrated with Blazor applications for authentication and authorization, providing secure access control.
5: Development and Deployment Efficiency: Azure DevOps services can be used to automate the build, test, and deployment processes of Blazor applications. This integration streamlines the development lifecycle, making it more efficient and error-resistant.
6: Scalability and Performance: Azure provides the ability to scale applications as needed. Blazor applications, especially when combined with Azure's cloud capabilities, can handle increased loads and traffic efficiently, ensuring smooth performance.
7: Comprehensive Ecosystem: The combination benefits from the comprehensive ecosystem of tools, libraries, and resources available from both Blazor and Azure. This ecosystem simplifies the development process and provides extensive support for various application requirements.
