Jenkins is quick to learn and quick to implement
Score 8 out of 101
Overall Satisfaction with Jenkins
Multiple departments use Jenkins for deploying code to our dev/test/stage environments, and our ops team uses it primarily to deploy code to production endpoints.
- Code package deployment. It wraps up and pushed out the code quickly and easily.
- Good UI - verbose output is available, and there's an easy walk-through deploy process.
- Multiple scripting language support - Jenkins can integrate PowerShell, Python, etc.
- Documentation in the application itself is a bit thin.
- Outside automation and integration aren't easily understandable. It would be nice to work in Ansible with Jenkins.
- 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.
It's fast -- we can deploy a package and have it running in production in minutes. It works well with HA topologies and integrates with Azure and AWS well.
