ScopeMaster vs Azure DevOps

Azure DevOps (formerly VSTS) is the software team collaboration tool from Microsoft.  Unlike Azure DevOps, ScopeMaster actually analyses the users stories both individually and as a set.  It is much more than a configurable requirements repository, it performs intelligent text analysis on the written requirements to help you enjoy rapid feedback on quality, size and insight.  Ultimately helping you to build the right software first time, with less rework and less waste.

You can synchronise user stories between ScopeMaster and Azure DevOps in three ways:

  1. Synchronise via the built-in synchroniser
  2. Synchronise using the ScopeMaster API and ADP API
  3. Periodically load/re-load a CSV  extract from ADO
