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

Improvements to My Organization

It's more structured, using naming conventions.

Valuable Features

  • Customization
  • Automation

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

Room for Improvement

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

Use of Solution

Three to five years.

Stability Issues

I would say it's a quite stable system.

Scalability Issues

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

Customer Service and Technical Support

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

Previous Solutions

No previous solution.

Initial Setup

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

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Some of the add-ons are too expensive.

Other Solutions Considered

No. When I started, Jenkins was broadly used.

Other Advice

Start with Jenkins as your first CI solution.

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