Jenkins Review

Customization and the ability to automate processes from end-to-end are valuable

How has it helped my organization?

It's more structured, using naming conventions.

What is most valuable?

  • Customization
  • Automation

It's very useful when you want to automate different processes from beginning to end.

What needs improvement?

Maybe centralized user management. (We are not using all the functionalities of the product).

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I would say it's a quite stable system.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

As I mentioned, we are not using all the feature of it, so it's very easy to scale it.

How is customer service and technical support?

It's free software with a big community behind it, which is very good.

Which solutions did we use previously?

No previous solution.

How was the initial setup?

It's pretty straightforward. Use apt-get to install Jenkins, and then there is just some minor configuration work.

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

Some of the add-ons are too expensive.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No. When I started, Jenkins was broadly used.

What other advice do I have?

Start with Jenkins as your first CI solution.
