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.

Liquibase

Liquibase works really well for CI/CD and version control if configured properly. It did take a lot of tweaking and reworking some items to really understand a lot of how the pieces fit together. I wouldn't recommend using it without pairing it with GitHub or other source control repo applications though. It feels like it really shines when working in tandem.

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

  • Tracking changes through DATABASECHANGELOG table
  • Works with different DB tools (Oracle, SQL etc.)
  • Rollbacks are easier with tag if you have rollback scripts in place.
  • Comparing databases (in different environments) or their states or even creating a new data base with existing changesets.

Cons

Atlassian

  • Extremely hard barrier to entry for non-backend developers
  • Blackbox makes it hard to customize functionality
  • The inability to add features without breaking core functionality
  • No cloud solution
  • Tasks cannot be put in if/else statements
  • No clear right way to form build plans

Liquibase

  • the build has a very tedious process - taking backup and restoring for every script to be processed
  • Error handling, many errors are left unmanaged due to which finding the root cause of the issue is difficult
  • HTML reports can be optimized for low space
  • Permissions management i.e. in case of the build is failing, permissions can be checked beforehand. rather than failing in process execution.
  • Project creation from TSV files makes it complicated

      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

      I have given this rating because there aren't too many products that do what this solution does, which is to group packages of SQL code that implement a database change request. It's a unique product. So far, it's been quite a good solution for us. And the vendor continues to enhance the product. It is good software.

      Alternatives Considered

      Atlassian

      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

      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

      • No database mishaps. It happened before when we were doing all the database management manually and we dropped one too many columns, and you really don’t want to do it by yourself. Liquibase has helped us mitigate that.
      • We have experienced zero downtime apart from the planned maintenance windows. The updates happen quickly and we have reduced the amount of time we leave the software offline.
      • By being so quick, we have reduced the deployment time by a considerable margin. We know we can trust the software to do all the heavy lifting for us.
