- Automate deployments to different environments by configuring and automating different build stages which reduced time to market
- Provide quick feedback about deployed builds through automated tests
- Tracking history of different builds
- Its stable and requires very less maintenance.
- Feature and functionality wise It's far better than all other enterprise CI tools.
- By using Jenkins we're saving significant amount of money .
- It automates the release process, making is easier, faster, and most consistent.
- It takes quite a bit of work to maintain, sometime delaying builds by a day or so to get the issue sorted out.
- Automation helps cut down man hours
- Open-source Jenkins is free so there is no cost other than man hours
- Jenkins is great
- Helps with workflow really well.
- Investment is really only time as it is open source.
- Enables us to safely deploy many different projects multiple times per day.
- Allows us to automate many tasks that were previously manual.
- Reduces the risk of making a production release by allowing us to run tests and verification steps.
- High maintenance cost.
- Lots of code and effort to maintain.
- Only a few people understood how it worked. Legacy knowledge.
- Increases productivity.
- We can focus on other tasks.
- Issues are detected and resolved almost right away which keeps the software in a state where it can be released at any time safely.
- It makes devs lives very easy.
- We deliver software in a more reliable way.
- We perform tests which many times are requirements on the security processes.
- Performing all those tasks in an automated way, we are saving engineers time.
- Improved CICD flow
- Catch regressions earlier
- Prevent production outages via shift-left promotion checks
- Jenkins helps to increase our product quality as our code is tested with unit tests and automation tests in every situation.
- It's Open-source, so there's little to no cost overhead for deploying and updating Jenkins.
- It's well known in the industry, so many employees are already familiar with it.
- Multi-platform support means we don't have to rely upon Windows OS (and associated licensing) to use Jenkins.
- We mostly rely on freelancers all over the world which understand our problem statement and start to work on immediately because of Jenkins. This keeps the production safe and lets the work to carry on in another environment.
- Integration to GitHub helped a lot to sync our older releases of the projects. Better updates were given to the customers. The "GitHub issues" plugin is a savior for updates and patches.
- Most of our Ubuntu servers were ready to cope up with the technology rather than the windows systems. Thus we migrated to Ubuntu systems all over the workforce. Easy installation on Ubuntu helped in delivering the release at the right time.
- Has cut our deployment time drastically by incorporating automatic integration and QA testing into our workflow.
- Has the ability to deploy our staged code automatically once green-lit by the QA team and the software devs.
- Jenkins has reduced our time to market since we can integrate various deployments and test suites directly into the build
- Jenkins has reduced the training time required for our new engineers. Since this is the defacto build tool, most of our new hires already understand how to use it.
- Jenkins is also a free tool which provides these benefits without costing the company, although there are companies that provide support.
- Time - No longer need to manually run deploys, test scripts, etc. since Jenkins will do it automatically for you.
- Resources (People) - Automating tasks requires less things needing to be done, thus not requiring as many developers
- Code Quality - Because of continuous integration and automation capabilities, we can put quality checks into the workflow and run tests to make sure things are working and don't break (without needing to do any extra work)
- Has streamlined the build, release and deployment schedules with the automation it provides
- Very easy to run automated tests and promote code to higher environments.
- Scripting support helps to customize as per the organization's needs.
- Its a great ROI. Jenkins helps in automating most of the stuff.
- The way Jenkins handles the scale is quite impressive. Have one master and multiple slaves of different OS types help achieve any kind of automations.
- We are able to achieve CICD for many applications with just one master slave Jenkins setup.
- The Jenkins team is very much updated with current trend technology of cloud (AWS, GC etc. ) and also supports container technologies (Docker and orchestrating it using Kubernetes ); because of this, there is no need to think of another tool for any new technologies. And enterprises can use Jenkins for long-term stability with full trust.
- Faster deployment makes business respond to market more easily
- No need for a separate release management team
- Jenkinsfile make release deployment automated as a code
- Having a CI/CD pipeline, in general, helps you push new features faster and more reliably.
- In the short term - a large setup cost.
- Long-term - no cost for SaaS products.
- Jenkins provides a continuous overlook on a project's health which impacts the ROI positively.
- Sometimes Jenkins claims build issues due to various reasons. So taking time to resolve them may it cause to block the release process and which also affects the ROI negatively.
- Jenkins is open-source and it is freely available for anyone to use. Hence it impacts the ROI positively.
- Streamlined building our server infrastructure, which gave us more time for other development efforts.
- Helped improve code quality - we were able to verify that the code was compiling properly with each check-in.
- Made deployments more bullet proof - with a standard flow for deploying our code/infrastructure, it made less room for human error.
- Deployment automation is the biggest gain. You can plug anything into anything using Jenkins as the UI
- Simplifying complex tasks via UI
- Capturing complexity and removing/reducing key man dependencies
