Bamboo Review

Has good integration, is efficient, and doesn't take up other resources


What is our primary use case?

This is a part of the CI/CD. We use this tool to move into production. 

How has it helped my organization?

It does automation which saves time so that people don't have to waste time. We save around 20% on time. 

What is most valuable?

It's one of the best solutions in this line of work. We have many Atlassian products. We use Bamboo, JIRA, Service Desk, and some other Atlassian plugins. We like that it's easy to integrate into each other. It's a suite of services. 

It doesn't take up other resources. It's very efficient. 

What needs improvement?

It's a little outdated. It's three years old. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have only used Bamboo at my current company and I've been there for a year now. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is very stable. We have experienced issues but there is alway support.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We are upgrading to the latest version because of the scalability. 

How are customer service and technical support?

I usually solve any problems we have by myself. If for whatever reason there isn't any information available online we contact their support and they get back to us within hours. I opened around five to ten tickets with them. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

They have very stable pricing. The license is 120,000 per year for the license and maintenance.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it an eight out of ten. Not a ten because the GUI is old I always have to find the right plugin.

My advice to someone considering this solution is that if you have the money, buy it. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

5.x
