Jenkins Review
Nice functionality, but does not have a very user-friendly interface

Improvements to My Organization

We used it for all continuous integration parts, like automation testing, deployment, etc.

Valuable Features

In Jenkins v.2, the most useful feature is the Pipeline plugin. The reason why I think so is that you can build your own workflow with Groove and the plugin has many useful features like parallel executing, running commands, etc. and even imagine implementing your own features on Groove.

Room for Improvement

The interface.

Use of Solution

One to three years.

Stability Issues

Yes, in Jenkins v.2. However, I am guessing that is because we used it right after the first release.

Scalability Issues

In my opinion, there is an issue with the scalability. After Jenkins has big count of jobs, it begins to lose performance and you need to start one more server with a separate Jenkins and migrate some jobs there.

Customer Service and Technical Support

It was enough for me.

Previous Solutions

No, I did not.

Initial Setup

As I remember, there was just one command on Linux. Pretty easy.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

It is free.

Other Solutions Considered

I didn't choose, but in my opinion, this is the best open source solution for CI and CD.

Other Advice

Nice functionality, but does not have a very user-friendly interface.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
