Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Features I like include: shared resource locking, customization via plugins and meta-runners, and storing build configurations per-branch for Git code repositories. Valuable Features:Features I really like:Branch builds for Git repositories, shared resource locking, customization via plugins and meta-runners, and storing build configurations per-branch for Git code repositories.Improvements to My Organization:TeamCity allows us to have self-sufficient development teams that can create their own builds and deployments. TeamCity has really allowed us to embrace continuous integration (even running full CI on all code branches with no extra effort).Room for Improvement:Features I would like to see in TeamCity:Allow for shared resource locks across multiple build configurations (i.e. deploy then run integration tests against the same environment).Allow shared resource locks to accept parameters for dynamic assignment of locks.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by There are the occasional issues in deploying software, but it has centralized our build automation. Valuable Features:* Centralized build automation* Ability to embed powershell scripts for automated deployments* Auditability of builds* Unit tests* Smoke tests* Automated deploymentsImprovements to My Organization:Continuous integration has reduced build failures and highlighted issues sooner. Automated deployments of web services, database scripts and applications chained across all environments has minimized time and effort, sped up delivery time, reduced risk of human error and enabled automated communication to stakeholders via integration with JIRA for release notes.Use of Solution:I've used it for three years.Deployment Issues:Occasionally issues deploying software using the tool due to configuration issues within the tool (mostly around powershell configuration).Stability Issues:We had to add additional servers to enable a failover capability, but this was more to do with our infrastructureScalability Issues:No issues enquired.Customer Service:I've not required customer service.Technical Support:It's good. It's done via online forums.Previous Solutions:We previously used Jenkins and Cruise control. We changed to enable one common solution and standard support model, also better functionality.Initial Setup:It was very simple. I have also installed on my home server to enable me to continue to develop and learn the tool.Implementation Team:We did it in-house.Cost and Licensing Advice:The initial cost was only the cost of a virtual server, and database which was less than 1000 Euros a month. I am not aware of ongoing costs.Other Solutions Considered:No other options were evaluated.Other Advice:Make sure you define the standards and naming conventions prior to implementing TeamCity.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by It delegates the building of executable code to a machine, and it stays running and performs build regularly. Valuable Features:I spend less time scripting to get a build working and more time configuring TeamCity through its web-based front end.Improvements to My Organization:It delegates the building of executable code to a machine.Room for Improvement:More build runners and more options are needed, although I have no worries they keep improving.Use of Solution:This is the second job I have used it at. I have used other CI systems in the past, but I have been using TeamCity around two years.Deployment Issues:Actually, I ran into a problem and I needed to do a fresh install. TeamCity stores its configuration data separate from where it installs. so this makes upgrades smoother, but makes it harder to start with a fresh slate. The problem was the data directory of the service account was rerouted because it was a 64 bit OS to SysWOW64.Stability Issues:No, it stays running and performs build regularly.Scalability Issues:For our usage, it has scaled well to our needs.Customer Service:10/10 - their service is very professional and prompt.Technical Support:10/10 - their service is very professional and prompt, and their staff really wants to solve your problems.Previous Solutions:I had used CruiseControl.NET in the past. It was useful once running, but painful to initially setup, and we used word of mouth and articles showing comparisons with other frameworks.Initial Setup:Just installing it with one agent is a breeze. The starting free license comes with three build agents, which, if you install them all as services, takes a little modifying of config files and running of batch files.Implementation Team:I implemented it.ROI:Yet to be calculated. I am trying to automate the release of deliverables to free someone's time up.Cost and Licensing Advice:Start with the free license it has decent room for one group.Other Advice:Start small. Start with just doing builds before executing tests.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions. November 10, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by It provides us with continuous deployment and integration, but get someone who knows it well to go through the basics. Valuable Features:* General ease of use* Quick start up time* NUnit build runnerImprovements to My Organization:* Continuous deployment* Continuous integration* Testing feedbackUse of Solution:I've used it for four years.Deployment Issues:No issues encountered.Stability Issues:No issues encountered.Scalability Issues:No issues encountered.Previous Solutions:There was no previous solution in place.Initial Setup:It's straightforward as the UI is intuitive.Implementation Team:I implemented it myself.ROI:It's free, so very good.Cost and Licensing Advice:Start with the free version, and go from there.Other Solutions Considered:No other options were evaluated.Other Advice:Get someone who knows it well to go through the basics, but there's also loads of help on Google.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by The templates allow a consistent configuration on how an application is built. Valuable Features:* Ease of configuring complete build chains with the use of build templates* Creating a single custom build runner that allows us to have a single entry point and filter steps by arguments for all our builds* The ability to trigger subsequent builds in a chain based off of multiple types of triggers in a deterministic fashionImprovements to My Organization:Creating a meta-runner to use as a single build entry point. The templates allow a consistent configuration on how an application is built, and by combining the use of the meta-runner and build templates, the whole organisation understands, and follows, this convention. By following this convention, a complete build stack is completed in a single REST call.Room for Improvement:* Client side load as projects/builds with a lot of test history, and branches can take quite a bit of time to load* It would also be nice to have a conditional build step: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/TW-17939 ( https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/TW-17939 )* Having project templatesUse of Solution:I used it for three years.Deployment Issues:You shouldn't use TeamCity as a deployment tool.Stability Issues:As versions progress, TeamCity has greatly improved it's stability with it's resourcing. Also following JetBrains' documentation about how to set up TeamCity, distributes load in a more even fashion.Scalability Issues:There have been times when making copies of a project has caused major stability issues, especially when you have nested project structure based off of different build configuration templates.Customer Service:I've never needed to deal with customer service.Technical Support:YouTrack has been a great forum to raise/track issues.Previous Solutions:We previously used CC.Net. TeamCity provided a much easier method of configuration as well as templating over CC.Net.Initial Setup:If you want just a basic setup, it is extremely straightforward. If you require optimizations such as I/O distribution, you will need to do a little bit more work.Implementation Team:We implemented it in-house.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Useful to see how the build is progressing and how many tests are left to pass. Valuable Features:* It's a very useful, intuitive tool to continuously deploy new builds* A clean user interface* It's very easy to use, even for non-build engineers* Ability to run automated tests as part of the build process* Easy to pinpoint issues with the detailed logs* Easy navigation* Useful to see how the build is progressing and how many tests are left to pass before the build is greenImprovements to My Organization:* Improved the quality of builds by running unit tests as part of every build* Reduced the risks of regression defects by running automated tests as part of the build processRoom for Improvement:The UI could be more structured, as it is so customisable it is quite easy to get lost around the screens.Use of Solution:I have used this product for over six months now.Deployment Issues:Only environment issues which caused failed deployments. Also, if people were connected to the database on the backend, the build would fail.Stability Issues:It seemed a very stable tool with hardly any downtime in the six months I was using it.Scalability Issues:Not at all. In fact it was so stable we were able to add and create our own virtual environments each time we needed to deploy. This meant that each user had their own virtual environment, meaning nothing ever got overwritten.Technical Support:I had no need for it as we had DevOps engineers who fixed any issues.Previous Solutions:I used to use Jenkins in a previous job. I started using TeamCity when I changed jobs as that was the tool that was being used, but I preferred TeamCity to Jenkins.Initial Setup:It's fairly straightforward.Implementation Team:It was implemented by an in-house team.ROI:We used to deploy multiple times a day too many different environments. Also, we had offices in Australia who were using it when we were asleep! Effectively we were using this tool 24 hours a day, seven days a week.Other Advice:Do it! Very easy to use and very stable. A must have tool for any teams using agile methodologies.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions. April 14, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by The support for cross-platform builds is very valuable, as is the flexibility in creating build steps. Valuable Features:The support for cross-platform builds is very valuable, as is the flexibility in creating build steps. We love that we can include unit and integration tests as part of a build configuration! The plugin functionality is great too, and we couldn't live without the Octopus Deploy plugin.Improvements to My Organization:With Teamcity, our build/packaging process and the ensuing deployment via Octopus Deploy takes less than half an hour. We have a customer base of approximately 40,000, spread over hundreds of virtual machines, so a fast deployment with little to no downtime is critical.Room for Improvement:It'd be great to see future built-in support for Octopus Deploy. Currently, Octopus Deploy provides a plug-in for TeamCity, but the installation is manual, and requires a restart of the TeamCity service in order to complete the installation. This is really the only small improvement I would recommend, but it's obviously not a deal-breaker.Use of Solution:I've used TeamCity for approximately one and a half years.Deployment Issues:While I didn't take part in the original installation of TeamCity at my current employer, I have set it up on various machines for testing/trial purposes. I use it regularly for a personal project that I maintain. The installation and setup of an initial build configuration were both very straightforward.Stability Issues:No issues encountered.Scalability Issues:No issues encountered.Customer Service:I haven't had the opportunity to interact with support team at JetBrains, but I am impressed with the extent of the documentation.Technical Support:I haven't been in a situation which required the assistance of the JetBrains technical support team.Previous Solutions:It was in place before I arrived at my current employer, but I know that the deployments were handled largely through robocopy scripts that took hours to run. Deploys were typically done in the wee hours of the morning, and required having multiple developers on-site/on call.Initial Setup:I've found the installation to be very straightforward.Implementation Team:The installation was handled as a joint effort between our in-house development and IT teams.Other Advice:If you need an enterprise build management tool, and your budget permits, it's absolutely worth looking at. Even for independent developers with a limited budget, JetBrains allows you to use the product for free up to a certain number of projects. I use it for a personal project at home, and love it.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions. March 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very useful for setting up build agents in a Unix platform. Valuable Features:* Continuous integration* Build templates* Triggers* Plugins* Platform independenceImprovements to My Organization:We used do all of our product development builds using .net and Java languages. It is very useful to setup build agents in a Unix platform for all kinds of Unix builds.Room for Improvement:Deployment functions need work.Use of Solution:I've used it for two years.Deployment Issues:We had an issue when we customized TeamCity for deployment functions in a Windows environment using PowerShell scripting.Stability Issues:No issues encountered.Scalability Issues:No issues encountered.Customer Service:Good. I would give them a 9/10.Technical Support:Good. I would give them a 9/10.Previous Solutions:No previous solution was used.Initial Setup:Simple and easy to integrate with Subversion source code tool.Implementation Team:We used an in-house team whose expertise was 9/10.Other Advice:It was simple and easy to use. Great features which are always customizable.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions. March 30, 2015
