Harness stuck out to me due to the fact that it looked like testing and deployment was very simple and out of the box. TeamCity it definitely isn't plug and play. It's not a few clicks and you're done. It takes a bit more work. 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. I would like it if they had a better system for copying or editing what has already been created. Right now it's either too simplistic, or you have to go through several steps just to delete something and to copy something that either does a whole copy or almost nothing. There is no in-between. You can't choose how much of something you take. I would prefer if there was more of, "okay, copy all of this, but leave out these steps." That would just make things a lot faster.

Some of the configurations have room for improvement. They are partly calling another tool via the command line and the parameters on the command line are occasionally hard to use. If there was more documentation that was easier to locate, it would be helpful for users.

It will benefit this solution if they keep up to date with other CI/CD systems out there. Although I think TeamCity has everything anyone would need, and covers almost every scenario, it needs to keep evolving just to appear to be in sync with others. Also, more marketing would be helpful just to get the word out on what an amazing product TeamCity is.

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.
