Pros
"Very good reporting features."

More IBM Rational Build Forge Pros »

"TeamCity is very useful due to the fact that it has a strong plug-in system.""The most valuable aspect of the solution is its easy configuration. It also has multiple plugins that can be used especially for building .net applications.""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."

Cons
"Not user friendly for the layman."

More IBM Rational Build Forge Cons »

"If TeamCity could create more out of the box solutions to make it more user friendly and create more use cases, that would be ideal.""If there was more documentation that was easier to locate, it would be helpful for users.""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."
