Digital.ai (formerly XebiaLabs, CollabNet VersionOne, and Arxan)

Mainly used in release management where all deployments are well managed and processed further based on the approval system. Complete enterprise-level solution with minor difficulties which need to be added to product improvement features. Integration with other CI-CD tools makes it easier to perform tasks in terms of release and deployments.

Jenkins helps the flow of build from the development team to the QA team. Can be really helpful in doing continuous builds, but when this feature is turned on the development team must have great communication otherwise the risk of broken builds become very high. In the long run, we found it made things easier when we just pushed the build manually and appointed a team member the build master.

Pros

Digital.ai (formerly XebiaLabs, CollabNet VersionOne, and Arxan)

  • Cross-team release workflow control using email, texts, scripts allow our release management to be truly a 360 process.
  • XL Release allowing our Jenkins toolchain to control the beginning of release trains which is very powerful.
  • XL release allows us to expose the business process flow for anyone to read direct at the source which runs the process instead of a separate vision.

  • Automatic jobs: there are infinite possibilities when it comes to Jenkins. You can run code against any testing suite you can imagine or conjure up. You can deploy applications at any time anywhere, automatically with no human intervention. If a certain stage fails, it will notify the team and your sysadmin of the issue so you can resolve it as quickly as possible
  • Automatic rollback: because of how Jenkins works, it can hold off publishing code and integrate locally to run QA procedures before pushing to deployment. This means that bugs are caught before your servers are updated and prevents a faulty program from affecting your downtime in the first place. Its a game changer for high availability.

Cons

Digital.ai (formerly XebiaLabs, CollabNet VersionOne, and Arxan)

  • Pagination of data - across tool.
  • User Roles Management API can be improved.
  • Case insensitive ID's are treated differently making user face login and access issues.
  • Dependency on Universal template/custom plugins creation should be reduced.
  • Code versioning of templates is very difficult.
  • Better error handling.
  • Futures Timeout Issues.

  • Once we organized a hackathon with our GitHub Storage. Jenkins was integrated at that time. We had a 20GB plan, but it oversized to 50GB. We had to bear a large sum of money which was unpredicted by our company. Being a startup we cannot bear such mistakes.
  • Jenkins cannot be easily studied and managed. We have to recruit personnel part-time for managing and servicing the server.
  • Though it is open source, there is no dedicated community driven forum or support. There are 3rd party discussion and support portals. Thus, we use Gitter always for debugging and solutions.

      Usability

      Digital.ai (formerly XebiaLabs, CollabNet VersionOne, and Arxan)

      The tool is easy to use, easy to navigate and learn. Manages releases with proper approvals in a systematic manner. Though it needs minor improvements in terms of pagination (data loading), access management, but, overall the tool helps in increasing productivity and less time for production deployments.

      While the day to day use is very easy, the configuration and setting up of the system or new projects can be cumbersome.

      Sometimes I feel like I am using software developed at the '90s. The Jenkins functioning is amazing. It fulfills its role, but when we are talking about the user interface, it is something painful sometimes, and unfortunately, I didn't see investment and/or improvement on this part over the past few years. Another thing I couldn't forget to mention is about the ecosystem around Jenkins, there are a bunch of plugins, but due to this flexibility, we caught ourselves struggling with broken plugins several times.

      Support is not good at all. To this day, I have to mail my queries and their support site does not log in for me (me alone). But, upon contacting many times, no one helps with a proper response. Though good thing is, I get a proper response over mail too. But, being informative about the tool and not on the issues faced by users outside of the process to get support should also be addressed equally. Which is currently missing in support.

      There is a large development community - but it is shifting as people move towards other tools. A lot of companies still use Jenkins and will build propriety tools, which doesn't help any of the open-source community. Jenkins has a lot of help and support online, but other, more modern, alternatives will have better support for newer tech.

      XL release is simpler to configure and deploy to the organization than other change management platforms I have used. That simplicity has minor drawbacks requiring you to fit into a limited set of control methods but that exercise helped us simplify a needlessly onerous process.

      We previously utilized Hudson - which was limited and did not have the extensive plugin abilities of Jenkins. We selected Jenkins for it's ease of use, beautiful interface, and stability. Other software such as Hudson and Bamboo didn't provide these abilities.

      Return on Investment

      Digital.ai (formerly XebiaLabs, CollabNet VersionOne, and Arxan)

      • XL release has improved our consistency of release process, removing multiple days worth of manual status checking and coordination.
      • XL release has allowed us to increase the number of beta releases we can support due to simplifying our release actions.

      • Low investment: As the software is open source, there is no purchase required for on-premises installations, and there is a low barrier to entry for companies offering hosted solutions. This leads to competition on price, and therefore lower prices.
      • Saves time by automating manual tasks: There are often a lot of repetitive tasks that need to be done to prepare for a release, and Jenkins enables these tasks to be run easily and frequently (for example, running tasks on every pull request)
      • Near-immediate returns: Spend a day or two and easily automate most common tasks. Reports are visible so that managers and team leads can keep an eye on code quality.
