Overall Satisfaction with Bamboo

Bamboo within our organization is used as a continuous integration and delivery tool, with seamless integration with Atlassian products such as Bitbucket and JIRA. In my team, we use it to manage and build our automated testing scripts which help monitor our highly transactional web application/e-commerce site around the clock, it is an invaluable tool.
  • Seemless integration with Atlassian products
  • Easy to set up and use
  • Helpful support from Atlassian
  • Plugins are expensive
  • Not open-source
  • Community of users is much smaller than competitors such as Jenkins
  • Around the clock application monitoring through scheduled automated testing script runs is invaluable. Hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars in transactions saved.
  • Time saved from diagnosing and investigating software issues with the help of Atlassian support, as compared to time spent investigating and diagnosing issues with open-source alternatives.
  • Time saved from general workflow process, Bamboo makes it very seamless and simple.
Bamboo is great tool when compared to the open-source alternative Jenkins, with mainly the same functionality in both it really shines with its integration of the Atlassian product line. Jenkins works really well with a huge community of users and plenty of plugins that are open-source as well, as compared to Bamboo which has a small community and plugins that can cost lots of money.
Bamboo is best suited for companies and teams that are already ingrained within the Atlassian software eco-system. It integrates with their products such as Bitbucket and JIRA really well, which helps with the general workflow of creating tickets to code development to finally with Bamboo, building and testing the code.
