Overall Satisfaction with Bamboo
Bamboo is used along with our Atlassian suite of applications and mainly by the development team and client services. Since our company just shifted to continuous integration for updating our public facing products, we have been utilizing this product for code. This process is ongoing and meant as part of our agile product development.
- Sharing of source code.
- Compliant source code.
- Administration could be simplified.
- Rights more granular.
- Easily pays for itself in time saving.
- Fewer products required for same results.
Jenkins is the only other we had briefly considered for continuous deployment type of products, but being open source could not get the same level of reliability and support offered from Bamboo's product maturity.
Updates are not so complex that they cannot be accomplished in a reasonable amount of time (usually weekend or late night weekdays if change control is approved). This keeps compliant with security updates to product as well.

Being in a Microsoft shop we can use ColdFusion Windows platform and have no issues integrating with code commits using Bamboo as releases are reviewed and committed to source control and changes. This allows us to use Visual Studio and .NET application build tools and interfaces as well still utilizing Bamboo as the tool in the stack for code review and continuous integration, a big plus in development.
