Analytics brings you and your team new insights into the health and status of your devops life cycle. It helps you make data driven decisions and deliver value to your customers faster.
For Azure DevOps Services, Analytics is now included as a part of the basic license. As such, Azure DevOps Services users will no longer need to install the extension to use Analytics. All the Analytics widgets and in-product experiences will be available at no additional cost. NOTE: Power BI Integration and OData endpoint access will remain in preview.
For Azure DevOps Server 2019, all of Analytics is currently in preview as an installable extension through the local marketplace. Installing the extension for Azure DevOps Server 2019 turns on the Analytics Service in your collection.
