Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"The UI is very intuitive."
"Deployment is valuable. It deploys well."
"The rollback feature has been most valuable. We can write scripts from scratch. Octopus maintains an independent package for every deployment."
"The most valuable functionality is the ability to define the deployment process, schedule the deployment and automatically execute the deployments to different environments."
"The most valuable feature is the snapshot functionality, which allows us to access previous versions of the artifacts."
"The solution handles complex deployments very efficiently."
"It is very easy to make a software release. It used to take us at least a couple of hours to make a release, now we went to production with a new one last night. This new release took me five minutes."
"Stable solution that's good for automating the CI/CD pipeline: from development to production."
"The stability is good. I haven't experienced any issues."
 

Cons

"This solution could be improved by making it easier to divide variables in YAML file or JSON files."
"There could be scope for more integration with other platforms."
"You've got to jump through a few hoops to get some things configured, but if set up, you can do so many different things in it. So, there is complexity."
"The interface allows access in a number of ways but that can be confusing."
"I would like to see more reporting for container architecture."
"The technical support of the solution could definitely be improved as PMRs take long to resolve."
"I certainly would like to have a better way to pass information between deployment steps using UrbanCode Deploy because that's really difficult to do."
"The scalability of this application needs improvement. Changes and variations in the application become bottlenecks as they need to be more seamless and comfortable."
"I would like to have the agent up and running at all times, as opposed to only while it is in the DevOps pipeline."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"I don't know the exact cost, but it's not exorbitant. It may be a couple of thousand dollars a year or something like that. I'm not sure, but it's reasonable. We get value for money out of it."
"The cost of the solution is high but it offers great ROI."
"The licensing fees for this solution are based on the number of servers that are being deployed and the number of agents that you have."
"Considering COVID-19, the price is too high."
