Team services, while very similar, did not really have that much more added features for the much higher price tag. The team has moved over to the subscription-based Visual Studio so we may be reevaluating this solution as now it is part of our subscription and no longer an added cost.

Originally Jenkins was selected because it was the best around, but it has since been outclassed by more specific services or cloud-based services and tools that will do all of the heavy lifting for you. Jenkins still has a use case - but it's hard to argue the additional maintenance overhead is worth it.

The big difference between Jenkins and other alternative tools is that Jenkins is open source and it’s free. Jenkins is very much about simple functionality. It’s a general CI tool that offers basic automation. It’s the most common CI tool on the market with a large community of users.

Jenkins is the only tool I would consider using for CTCI deployment. Its plugins make it easy to customize to any environment you can conjure up and will always be custom fit to your needs as a DevOps engineer. Other tools have better support but lack the customizability and ease-of-use that we've experienced using Jenkins.

Jenkins has been my favorite continuous integration tool I've used. It's easy to setup, intuitive to use, and very powerful. The software allows for building complex workflows, then having them run without thinking about it. This leads to savings in time and resources, and to better code quality. In my opinion, other tools offer similar capabilities, but in a partial or more complicated way.

It is free, of course that's the best advantage. Great number of plugins. Largest active developer community among peer competitors. Very few competitors have got the pipelines features right as good as Jenkins.

When looking for alternatives for Jenkins we found CircleCI and TeamCity are good too. Jenkins was considered for reasons like it has a wide variety of plugins which integrate well with any kind of system. And its ease of use.

One of the other greater advantage is it is open source and we can write/modify the plugins as per our requirement.

TeamCity is another viable option for Continuous Integration/Development. We picked Jenkins in this case because there was a lot of support for Amazon CloudFormation and other AWS integrations which fit the task at hand. For just straight compiling Microsoft based builds, TeamCity was a bit easier to use but was a bit more lacking in the AWS build options.

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.

Jenkins immense flexibility and its large and impressive selection of available community-driven plugins makes it ideal choice for solving non-traditional problems.

However, for CI/CD - consider the benefit of modern tools that enforce reusable, infrastructure as code design pattern.
