Jenkins Benefits

Most obvious: Having builds and test tasks triggered on commit helps not to break the product. From my own experience: 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. Integration with GitLab reduced time used for code reviews. Jenkins posted build state and code quality reports into the merge request. Simplified build scripts: Organisation started to integrate Pipelines as a part of a build, and built a library of common functions. It simplified and made our build scripts more readable. Automation of chores like deployment, frequent manual tasks (like running scripts on test and production systems) reduced the time used and the number of errors made by engineers, freeing them to do meaningful work instead.

For test automation, Jenkins seems to be our main and central solution at the moment. We want to extend this in the future towards Jenkins pipelines, which can be very useful for having a more dynamic test infrastructure. View full review »

Software Engineer at a retailer with 10,001+ employees
Jenkins has helped make teams more independent. For example, if a developer wants to check if the changes they are working on have any performance impact on their application, they would typically ask the performance engineer to do load tests before and after the change. This might be difficult to accomplish every time, based on the performance engineer's bandwidth. But with help of Jenkins, the performance engineer can create a job, one time, which the developer or anyone else can run anytime, as per their requirement. View full review »
