Seamless build process automation has increased our product velocity significantly

Pros and Cons

  • "The ability to automate the build process in a seamless way and run workflows effortlessly. It supports parallel builds so it can scale well. Also, it covers the basics of any build and integration tool, including email notifications (especially when tests are fixed), project insights, etc."

What other advice do I have?

AWS provides more options with Jenkins. Jenkins has plugins to work with AWS. And they are able to achieve more complicated tasks. Such as triggers.
