Decisions about Azure DevOps

Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Azure DevOps in their tech stack.

Asana
Azure DevOps
Jira

I am managing a medium-sized team (15-20 people) who are geographically dispersed. Our team works in privacy, security, data governance, and compliance, but we DO NOT develop software. So, our choices boil down to Jira, Azure DevOps Boards, and Asana.

We are looking for a tool that:

  1. Is user-friendly for non-technicians and easy for us to self-administer.
  2. Permits us to automate common workflows.
  3. Allows us to classify work across multiple dimensions.
  4. Permits cross-functional visibility across work teams to identify potential points of collaboration and historical work projects.
  5. Enables management visibility to see where we may be overtaxed or under-resourced or whether the time is spent on the right priorities.
  6. Enables engagement/task assignments to people who are not necessarily on our team (i.e., I need someone in HR to do "X") - preferably without their needing to be fully licensed.
  7. Makes it easier for everyone to understand how their work connects to the broader team's big-picture goals.
  8. Enables easy integration with other common workplace tools.

Thanks for any guidance you can provide.
