Overall Satisfaction with Jenkins

Currently Jenkins is being used across the IT team in our organization. It simply does the hard job of automating all the repetitive tasks, includes details in projects, inside builds, follows workflows, accesses operating systems, and alerts when it's done, or, based on decisions during tasks, what to do. This reduced a lot of work for our dev teams, but also now is helping the infrastructure team and other departments. The knowledge of Jenkins utilization replicates really fast inside our organization as at least one people inside every team learned about or knows how to use it to build a simple job to automate a task, workflow or a deploy. Jenkins also allows us to monitor what's being done, helping managers and the team have an overview of how a pipeline is running. Another problem that Jenkins solved is centralizing automation. As it's controlled by a web console, it's easy to check what is being done, access logs of old jobs, view the entire console output and know exactly who and when a job was last executed. Also, you may set permissions by project, by job, or what you or your organization needs.
  • Continuous Delivery

  • Dashboards

  • Reduces the errors
  • Tracks what was done
Jenkins is well suited for continuous integration, continuous delivery, task automation, deploy automation, detailed security, audit jobs, dashboards, central console to manage, orchestration of jobs (starting a job after your current job was finished with success, for example). But if you wish to continue running things manually, or enjoy it, this is definitively not a tool for you.
