Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery

At my company, we use the IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery service to validate in a development setting the changes my co-workers and I make every day. It helps us to automate the testings and code readability in the delivery pipeline, that way we can keep with code guidelines to keep Ithe maintainability.
  • The setup is really easy and intuitive.
  • Integrates easily with other IBM Cloud services.
  • The initial log of errors is helpful.
  • When a build fails, the only way to gather detailed information about the error is through the terminal.
  • Sometimes it has failed without a clear reason. However, this doesn't happen frequently and after a couple of minutes, the problem is usually fixed.
  • Sometimes you might want more personalization of the delivery pipeline, and in that case, it becomes a lot less intuitive.
  • Ability to continuously test the code.
  • Improve code readability with automated testings.
  • Fast deployment.
I find IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery service way easier to set up compared to Travis CI. The visual interface helps you navigate throughout the service effortlessly. I used Travis CI 2 years ago, although it wasn't complicated, I took more time to create and set up an instance with a project. However, I did get the feeling that for advanced settings, I was more in control than when I compare it to IBM's alternative. Nonetheless, from a day to day perspective, I rather choose IBM's over Travis CI.
In more than a year using the IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery tool, I haven't had any major complaints or problems. However, in the last month, IBM suffered from a couple of problems through several of its services, and for a short period of time, I couldn't deploy successfully my projects. The problem was brief and was quickly fixed.

Do you think IBM Cloud Developer Tools delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with IBM Cloud Developer Tools's feature set?

Yes

Did IBM Cloud Developer Tools live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of IBM Cloud Developer Tools go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy IBM Cloud Developer Tools again?

Yes

IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery is well suited for almost any project, especially if you are already using others IBM Cloud services. Almost anybody without any previous experience with the interface can create and setup their initial service. However, if you project demands a more elaborated delivery pipeline, it can require more in depth learning of the service.
