We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"There are a large number of plugins available for integration with third party systems."
"The most valuable feature is its ability to connect with different tools and technologies."
"It is very useful for us to be able to collect and manage automatic processing pipelines."
"This solution has helped us in automating the build and test process, reducing time."
"The most valuable features are Jenkins Pipelines for ALM and full Deploy Cycle."
"A lot of support material exists via a single web search of exactly what you're looking for."
"It is open source, flexible, scalable, and easy to use. It is easy to maintain for the administrator. It is a continuous integration tool, and its enterprise version is quite mature. It has good integrations and plug-ins. Azure DevOps can also be integrated with Jenkins."
"It provides repeatable CI/CD throughout our company with lots of feedback on failures and successes to the intended audiences via email and Slack."
"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."
"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."
"TeamCity is very useful due to the fact that it has a strong plug-in system."
"The user interface could be updated a little."
"This solution would be improved with the inclusion of an Artifactory (Universal artifact repository manager)."
"The learning curve is quite steep at the moment."
"The upgrades need improvement."
"Better and easy-to-use integration with Docker would be an improvement."
"I think an integrated help button, that respected the context of the change/work in hand, would be a worthwhile improvement."
"Its schedule builds need improvement. It should have scheduling features in the platform rather than using external plug-ins."
"It will benefit this solution if they keep up to date with other CI/CD systems out there."
"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."
"If there was more documentation that was easier to locate, it would be helpful for users."
"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."
"Jenkins is open source and free."
"There is no cost. It is open source."
Jenkins is an award-winning application that monitors executions of repeated jobs, such as building a software project or jobs run by cron.
