Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It's a perfect solution if you are just using AWS.""In AWS, the Cloud DevOps is a managed service from CodeCommit and this has removed the need for a lot of manual steps."

More AWS CodePipeline Pros →

"Jenkins has built good plugins and has a good security platform.""The most valuable feature of Jenkins is its open source.""The initial setup is simple.""The most valuable features of Jenkins are creating builds, and connecting them with Sonar for Sonar analysis. Additionally, we connect it with other vulnerability tools, such as WhiteSource which is useful.""The automated elements are easy to use and you can put them into your server.""Jenkins is stable, user-friendly, and helps with continuous integration. As of today, I can't see any tool that's better than Jenkins.""We are using the open-source version and there is a lot of plugins and features that are available and it works on agents for free. In other solutions, it will cost extra to use them with the agent.""Jenkins is a very mature product."

Cons
"If there are many dependancies involved in the setup, it may take a long time.""If you're talking about multi-cloud, you can't use it."

More AWS CodePipeline Cons →

"Jenkins could have better cloud functionality. Currently, we are using the existing legacy model, but we are moving toward the cloud, so it would be great if they could improve in that area. In the future, I would like more cloud features and related training materials, like a video tutorial.""It could be cheaper.""The disadvantage of Jenkins is writing Groovy scripts. There are other CI tools where you do not need to write this many scripts to manage and deploy.""For this solution to be a 10, it has to be a lot more stable. Maybe the public version of Jenkins is stable, but in our case it's not stable.""Jenkins could improve the integration with other platforms.""And I don't care too much for the Jenkins user interface. It's not that user-friendly compared to other solutions available right now. It's not a great user experience. You can do just fine if you are a techie, but it would take a novice some time to learn it and get things done.""The scriptwriting process could be improved in this solution in the future.""The UI of Jenkins could improve."
