Helm

Helm is very well suited for setting up GitOps or DevOps pipelines, as well as quickly setting up large, complex applications, such as Gitlab, Elasticsearch/Kibana, Prometheus/Kibana or MySQL. We also use it intensely to deploy and configure smaller building blocks in the Cloud Native / Kubernetes area, such as Ingress Controller, Cert Manager, External DNS, OpenPolicyAgent, Falco, Fluentd, to name a few.

Helm 8.0
Based on 2 answers
We didn't really need support, but the open-source community seemed responsive and informative when it came to issues. Many cloud native consultancy companies (including ourselves) offer support for Helm.

Helm

When deploying Kubernetes Manifests, one has a few choice:
  1. Vanilla Kubernetes (e.g., kubectl apply), but this requires to do all templating by hand and does not deal with removing Kubernetes objects.
  2. Docker compose: Works perfectly (and we love to use it) on a single Docker node, but not for multi-node clusters.
  3. Kustomize complements (but does not completely replace) Helm.
Furthermore, none of the above solutions allows one to tap into the vast ecosystem of Helm Charts that encapsulate existing knowledge on how to deploy and operate containerized applications.
