Most mobile engineers know that Jenkins was not built with mobile in mind. Maintaining on-premise hardware easily adds up to at least 10% of a developer’s time. Lost connection, debugging, and waiting for updates can take valuable hours of productivity away from the entire team. Taking all these things into account, not only does Jenkins turn out to be time-consuming, but quite expensive as well.
It does not come as a surprise that more and more teams are choosing cloud-based alternatives for their mobile apps. To help you evaluate the impact of the migration, we surveyed hundreds of developers from our userbase and talked to experts from companies like EPAM, Nextdoor, Pulselive, Compass, Signify, and more.
Some of the key findings of our research:
- 89.8% saw a performance increase after moving from Jenkins to a cloud-based CI tool
- 91.3% said they spend time on building automation, improving process and performance, or creating new features, instead of firefighting Jenkins
- Multiple teams reported strengthened DevSecOps processes after the switch
