Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"In Bamboo, build and deployment have been segregated. The build plan and deployment plan are different. When comparing Bamboo to other solutions, the native feature you will not find in another tool, such as Jenkins. They have segregated the build and deployment plan. This means, building the application and deploying it are two separate parts in Bamboo, they have segregated it apart from the UI. This makes the tool a bit better compared to other tools.""In my experience Bamboo is scalable.""The most useful feature of Bamboo is its integration with other solutions such as Jira and BitBucket, also offered by Atlassian. It is easier to use tools all provided by one vendor.""It can do the CI pipeline well."

More Bamboo Pros →

"We would like to see better integration with other version controls, since we encountered difficulty when this we first attempted.""The integration is a valuable feature.""Time to deployment has been reduced in situations where we want to deploy to production or deploy breaking changes.""TeamCity is a very user-friendly tool.""TeamCity's GUI is nice."

More TeamCity Pros →

"Bamboo can improve by providing more with scripting, such as they have with Jenkins. Bamboo is more UI-driven at this time, Jenkins is going in that direction too.""It should be much easier to use. It shouldn't require a lot of reading to be able to use it. It should have just two or three screens rather than hundreds of screens requiring a lot of clicking. It also requires a lot of integration. It has a steep learning curve. It takes a lot of time to understand and put in the data. There is also no proper training.""Scalability depends on the use case. If it is really a big customer with a lot of tests, it might not be a scalable option for them.""Bamboo is a bit complicated to use compared to other solutions, such as GitLab. You have to integrate different actions that are difficult that could be made easier."

More Bamboo Cons →

"We've called TeamCity tech support. Unfortunately, all their tech support is based in Europe, so we end up with such a big time crunch that I now need to have one person in the US.""The UI for this solution could be improved. New users don't find it easy to navigate. The need some level of training to understand the ins and the outs.""I need some more graphical design."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "There is a subscription required to use Bamboo."
  • "If Bamboo could provide more flexibility on pricing, that would help. On the agent side, if you want to increase the number of agents it should be less expensive. If they can provide some better pricing model, it will help, whether we are going to use it or are already using it."
  • "The server products for small teams used to offer excellent pricing. However, Atlassian has since changed the offering and the pricing is more expensive. I do still think the solution offers good value for money."
