Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
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.Enables us to detect exactly which build failed and why, and to push multiple builds to our production environment at a very fast rate.Some of the most valuable features include container-based builds, integration with Bit Bucket and being able to store artifacts.

I have not yet implemented the remote build feature, but this will be a big plus. We want to be able to build legacy products on a build agent without developers needing to have obsolete tool sets installed on their local PC.The flexibility of TeamCity allows it to fit in workflows that I have yet to imagine.It provides repeatable CI/CD throughout our company with lots of feedback on failures and successes to the intended audiences via email and Slack.Using TeamCity and emailing everyone on fail is one way to emphasize the importance of testing code and showing management why taking the time to test actually does saves time from having to fix bugs on the other end.It's easy to move to a new release because of templates and meta-runners, and agent pooling.VCS Trigger: Provides excellent source control support.Good integration with IDE and JetBrains products.

Cons
Integration with Microsoft Azure is one area for improvement. Azure is growing in its user base, and supports various cloud infrastructure components such as Service Fabric, App Service, etc. Some of Azure’s deployment models (like Kudu) require a steep learning curve, but if CircleCI would come up with such features (deployment to App Service) out of the box, it would be amazing.

Their online documentation is fairly extensive, but sometimes you can end up navigating in circles to find answers. I would like them (or partner with someone)​ to provide training classes to help newcomers get things up and running more quickly.It will benefit this solution if they keep up to date with other CI/CD systems out there.Last time I used it, dotnet compilation had to be done via PowerShell scripts. There was actually a lot that had to be scripted.REST API support lacks many features in customization of builds, jobs, and settings.The upgrade process could be smoother. Upgrading major versions can often cause some pain.I would suggest creating simple and advanced configurations. Advanced configurations will give more customizations like Jenkins does.
