Saasabi for Visual Studio Online Delivers Ad-Hoc Analytics

SaaS solution enables users of Microsoft’s Visual Studio Online to perform their own ad-hoc queries

Sydney, Australia – 9 September 2015 – Saasabi, creator of powerful, yet easy-to-use cloud analytics solutions for Microsoft Azure, today announces the launch of Saasabi for Visual Studio Online, software that brings ad-hoc analytics to Microsoft’s Visual Studio Online software development toolset.

Visual Studio Online provides a set of cloud-powered collaboration tools that work with a company’s existing integrated development environment (IDE) or editor, so that teams can work effectively on software projects of all shapes and sizes. Visual Studio Online includes tools for sharing code, tracking work, testing performance, identifying bugs and shipping software. Visual Studio Online also features a standard set of reports.

Saasabi for Visual Studio Online delivers native-to-the-cloud analytics similar to those currently available for Visual Studio via Analysis Services. Saasabi for Visual Studio Online gives project stakeholders the ability to perform their own queries via an out-of-the-box set of cubes that run against all of the data captured in Visual Studio Online as well as some calculated data that is not natively available in Visual Studio Online. Saasabi for Visual Studio Online is delivered as software as a service.

A few examples of reports that are easy to generate using Saasabi for Visual Studio Online include:

  • Cross-team analysis
  • Cross-project analysis
  • Time-based analytics

Saasabi for Visual Studio Online also gives users the ability to report on burn down rates over time; analyse beginning/end of periods; identify and drill through to work items attached to particular releases; implement full defect tracking and more. For a full list of features, go to

Saasabi’s CEO David Merchant says, “As teams move their software development lifecycle to the cloud, they need tools that keep pace. Saasabi for Visual Studio Online is a native-to-the-cloud solution that enables teams to perform ad-hoc queries to suit the needs of their organisation rather than rely on the standard set of reports that come with Visual Studio Online.”

Tom Lindeman, Director, Worldwide Developer Partner Ecosystem, Cloud & Enterprise Division, says, “We think the developer community will appreciate the added value in Saasabi for Visual Studio Online. It builds upon the great workflow management capabilities in Visual Studio Online and should help them find new efficiencies to better meet market demands.”

Adds Tatham Oddie, CIO at Readify, Microsoft Application Lifecycle Management Partner of the Year, "Saasabi for Visual Studio Online gives project stakeholders what they need – a tool that enables them to investigate, analyse and understand every aspect of their projects.”
