More Jenkins Pros →

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

More TeamCity Pros →

"A more user-friendly UI for creating pipelines would be helpful.""The documentation is not helpful, as it is not user-friendly.""I would like to see even more integrations included in the next release.""Jenkins is not an easy solution to use and the configuration is not simple. They can improve the solution by adding a graphical interface that is more user-friendly.""UI is quite outdated.""The disadvantage of Jenkins is writing Groovy scripts.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.""Jenkins could improve the integration with other platforms.""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."

More Jenkins 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."
