TeamCity Review

I use it to increase visibility and clarity of build and deployment activities.


What is most valuable?

There’s loads of valuable features but PowerShell Runner is invaluable.

How has it helped my organization?

It increases the visibility and clarity of build and deployment activities.

What needs improvement?

.net deployment needs improvement. Also, I'd like to see more NuGet/Octopus style features and Azure stuff.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for over five years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

It's all currently hand rolled in PowerShell.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Never ever had any stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have encountered some issues using large number of agents, and using git.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

The agents are amongst the best available/experienced around.

Technical Support:

The agents are amongst the best available/experienced around.

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

I have used Jenkins, TFS, Cruise Control .net, and GO. I switched from using Cruise Control .net as TeamCity is easier to use and displays important information very well. It also has great support for integrating to other products, from JetBrains and other vendors – Atlassian, JIRA, and Windows AD.

How was the initial setup?

It's very, very simple.

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

Setup is the licence (and my contract rate).

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have used all leading CI tools.

What other advice do I have?

With low costs to adopt what are you waiting for?
