We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"One of the big things that made us choose Bamboo, is it seamlessly integrates its APIs into NetSuite, which is our main ELP system."
"It's one of the best solutions in this line of work. We have many Atlassian products. We use Bamboo, JIRA, Service Desk, and some other Atlassian plugins. We like that it's easy to integrate into each other. It's a suite of services."
"The most valuable features are compiling and deployment."
"It can do the CI pipeline well."
"The orchestration, building the release, and then just executing it and managing that pipeline — the orchestration capabilities are great for that."
"The solution needs to support more customization in the training. What's offered is pretty generic. They need better training and should offer more guidance."
"It's a little outdated. It's three years old."
"The performance around the deployment feature could be improved."
"It should be much easier to use. It shouldn't require a lot of reading to be able to use it. It should have just two or three screens rather than hundreds of screens requiring a lot of clicking. It also requires a lot of integration. It has a steep learning curve. It takes a lot of time to understand and put in the data. There is also no proper training."
"The backfill could be improved, we could automate that. Right now it's subjective — it's up to the lead developer's memory to remember to backfill."
"Overall, the price is just too high; especially considering we're in the middle of a pandemic."
