What do you think of Jenkins?

How has it helped my organization?: We used it for all continuous integration parts, like automation testing, deployment, etc. • What is most valuable?: In Jenkins v.2, the most useful feature is the Pipeline plugin. The reason why I think so is that you can build your own workflow with Groove and the plugin has many useful features like parallel executing, running commands, etc. and even imagine implementing your own features on Groove. • What needs improvement?: The interface. • For how long have I used the solution?: One to three years. • What do I think about the stability of the solution?: Yes, in Jenkins v.2. However, I am guessing that is because we used it right after the first release. • What do I think about the scalability of the solution?: In my...

(We are not using all the functionalities of the product). • For how long have I used the solution?: Three to five years. • What do I think about the stability of the solution?: I would say it's a quite stable system. • What do I think about the scalability of the solution?: As I mentioned, we are not using all the feature of it, so it's very easy to scale it. • How is customer service and technical support?: It's free software with a big community behind it, which is very...
