Atlassian
If you value integration over cost, Bamboo is clearly the way to go. It offers tight integration to the rest of the Atlassian suite, and when you need traceability from issue to build, Atlassian is the right way to go. However, if you find yourself needing to save on costs, you may consider taking an approach of rolling your own build system with open source alternatives, such as Jenkins, if you don't [mind] putting in a little extra elbow grease.

Pros
Atlassian
  • Levels of granularity. Organization has many projects that have many build plans that have many jobs that have many tasks, etc. And branch builds allow source control branches to be built separately.
  • Versatility. I can use bamboo to manage my Java, node, or .NET build plans. I can use it to spin up Windows or Linux build agents, or install it on a Mac to build there as well.
  • Bamboo integrates with other Atlassian products like Bitbucket, Stash, JIRA, etc. If a company commits to the entire Atlassian stack then work can be tracked through the whole development lifecycle which is really useful.

Liquibase
  • Reducing Compatibility issues, when we upgraded Liquibase from 4.2 to 4.9. The same changeset which we were able to run on successfully using 4.2, part of it was now failing when tried to deploy using 4.9
  • We are not able to see detailed logs (for different changes) in uDeploy when deploying changes through Liquibase
  • Liquibase should rollback the if any one of the changes fails.

Usability
Atlassian
Bamboo was fairly easy to navigate but in the end it always felt as if it was developed as a bolt-on and not a true group up user interface. There were multiple ways to get to everything and the path was never the same. So it was difficult for users to really get a feel of how to use the application.

Support Rating
Atlassian
Support for Bamboo has started lack a little over the years. Atlassian has been moving more towards Bitbucket Pipelines and away from the on-premise install of Bamboo. While the tool is still great, it may take a little bit of time to get a question answered by official support.

Liquibase's customer support is at the top of my list of all vendors I've ever worked with over my 12 years of experience. They work directly with you to be successful, and response time is second to none. Liquibase is committed to getting customers up and running and - more importantly - successful in their organization and becoming champions of the product.

We selected Bamboo because its capabilities to integrate with other Atlassian products specially Jira Software, Bitbucket and in some useful scenarios with Confluence. Also, we found these pros important for us: great user interface, easily agent deployment, Docker compability, simply to maintain / manage, and straightforwardly integration with different notification platforms

To be honest, the option of having a free community plan to start testing in a test environment, followed by taking it in production a few months is a great way to evaluate wether or not to do the subscription based plan.

Return on Investment
Atlassian
  • It helped us achieve the Continuous Deployment and Continuous Integration goals for our applications, a huge milestone that saved a lot of time for developers in making the builds and deployments and saved time for QA in running the automated tests.
  • Helped with DevOps: we moved the formal approval from the email to the system and allowed the approver to actually push the button for the production deployments.
  • Biggest positive impact of using Bamboo is that it improved our response time to customers and increased the frequency of our deliveries to them.

Liquibase
  • We need to re-educate developers to use Liquibase.
  • In some cases, it is hard to align when several teams work on the same DB.
  • On the other hand, Liquibase provides order and consistency in managing DB changes.
  • Evidence and traceability are a plus.
