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

Pros
A lot of support material exists via a single web search of exactly what you're looking for.The most valuable features are Jenkins Pipelines for ALM and full Deploy Cycle.This solution has helped us in automating the build and test process, reducing time.It is very useful for us to be able to collect and manage automatic processing pipelines.The most valuable feature is its ability to connect with different tools and technologies.There are a large number of plugins available for integration with third party systems.Having builds and test tasks triggered on commit helps not to break the product.We significantly reduced build times of large projects (more than 80k lines of Scala code) using build time on Jenkins as a time sample. It reduced the developer write-test-commit cycle time, and increased productivity.

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.

Cons
I think an integrated help button, that respected the context of the change/work in hand, would be a worthwhile improvement.Better and easy-to-use integration with Docker would be an improvement.The upgrades need improvement.The learning curve is quite steep at the moment.This solution would be improved with the inclusion of an Artifactory (Universal artifact repository manager).The user interface could be updated a little.Jenkins relies on the old version of interface for configuration management. This needs improvement.Developer documentation for plugins, plugin development, integrations: Sometimes it’s tricky to do pretty obvious things.

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.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Jenkins is open source and free.I used the free OSS version all the time. It was enough for all my needs.Some of the add-ons are too expensive.It's free software with a big community behind it, which is very good.​It is free.​
