Are you familiar with the Command Line? If so Git may be a better alternative.

Puppet Enterprise

Puppet is good enough to get the job done, you can use it to automate deployments and maintain files and configurations, if this is all you're looking for it's great.If you're looking for more control over your systems as a whole without having to write your own scripts or install multiple configuration management systems then Puppet is not what you're looking for.

Cons

  • Very slow tool.

  • Steep learning curve for first time users.
  • The complexity can get a little overwhelming in a more collaborative deployment methodology across multiple platforms and data centers.
  • Some external changes to Puppet like the new Puppet 4 architecture can cause considerable time consuming migration efforts especially if you have a lot of legacy classes and configuration that do not conform readily to the new design.

Alternatives Considered

In my view, accurev ranks very low compared to other tools I have used. Microsoft TFS is the best in the industry as of today as it's a complete ALM solution. It does code version, bug tracking, user story documentation, and has easy integration with other external tools supporting many languages. So I would definitely recommend TFS to anyone.

Puppet was the first software for data center automation that we incorporated in our infrastructure and we were pleased enough to keep going with it.

Return on Investment

  • We will be moving away from Accurev as it's not meeting our needs.
  • We have been using it for many years and it has supported our needs well for these years . But since our org is growing and the projects getting more complex and team size is increasing, this tool is not working out for us.
  • It's a little simpler to understand than GIT but still the slowness of the tool overall is an issue.
