TeamCity Review

It runs acceptance tests after each commit, giving quick and automatic feedback on software quality.


What is most valuable?

We're using it for CI and automating build pipelines.

How has it helped my organization?

  • Rerun failed tests after overnight execution, saving manual re-execution time during working hours.
  • Run acceptance tests after each commit, giving quick and automatic feedback on software quality.
  • Automate build pipeline process, removing human errors from the process itself.

What needs improvement?

Setting up build configurations involves too many steps, as the process is too much broken down. We could do with the same number of steps but less groups.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for about two years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

I'm not in charge of this, I have updated TeamCity once and it seemed like a quite straightforward task (but slow, due to the DB backup) once I found the online walk-through.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's working perfectly with multiple projects running continuously on five build agents.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

I've never had to use customer support.

Technical Support:

The user guide is quite thorough and extensive. Some topics are hidden a little bit, but after a while all the queries are answered.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

No previous solution was used.

How was the initial setup?

After updating TeamCity, the setup process was quite straightforward, guiding me step by step through the configuration of the new tool.

What about the implementation team?

It was an in-house implementation.

What was our ROI?

It is vital to our business to have quick and robust builds, and TeamCity is helping us to keep everything tidy and under control.

What other advice do I have?

An FAQ section with all the most common issues/most asked technical questions would be more than welcome.
