If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering TeamCity, what would you say?

How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?

We're just a customer. We're using the most up to date version of the solution currently. TeamCity is our main continuous integration tool, however, it is deployments that we were looking into improving. With Harness I saw that the deployment process was very polished. And at this point I was wondering if there was any interactivity between the two solutions, or just what would be the benefits of just switching completely to Harness. We're currently researching that now. I'd advise other organizations to do a lot of research before you begin creating anything. The solution needs a lot of maintenance in the sense that you need to understand all the different pieces. You need to be able to look at the servers and the agents, and, if you're going to implement anything new, you'll need to understand it is going to take a while to get it right. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

We use the on-premises deployment model. I'd advise others that it's absolutely necessary to use an integration tool that can run integration tests. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

Wish the Tomcat server could magically convert to HTTPS (instead of the apparent default of HTTP). There are published works on using TeamCity (separate works by authors Melymuka and Mahlingam, both on Packt Publishing), however both of these are out of date which makes the initial learning curve more challenging. I invite these publishers to update their work; would gladly purchase updated revision.
