The mostly integrated CI/CD tool

Pros

The tool is completely integrated with other devop tools, making easy to work and deploy what you need and if someone goes wrong he will told you too.

Cons

The tool is upgrading and developing more features day after day and some functions isn’t finished yet

Reasons for Choosing Harness

Harness is much more robustly and have much more functions to our devops day a day

Reasons for Switching to Harness

We had lost our dev who has developed all Jenkins scripts and the change to Harness was amazing because we don’t need to script anymore

Harness for the win!

From shopping to inception it's been an absolute blast. Lucky, [SENSITIVE CONTENT] have helped every step of the way to transition to the dumpster fire of Jenkins we had, to the new hotness for our CI/CD.

Pros

1) It's not Jenkins, 2) ease of use and setup 3) empowerment for developers to be self service 4) pipeline and workflow malleability 5) no plugins to maintain 6)not jenkins

Cons

Only con is their can be some feature requests to be done (non product impacting) but, they jump right on those. It's pretty cool to grow with harness. That's literally the only thing I can think of.

Reasons for Choosing Harness

When we had questions our Service rep never responded. Well he did once, two months later after we decided to go with Harness

Reasons for Switching to Harness

Great Product for Orchestrating Deployments

A great tool. We implemented it to save the development time on building out a pipeline using other tools like Jenkins. We managed to get a production ready pipeline up and running within a month. Support from Harness is excellent and they are always there to help when required.

Pros

The out of the box functionality does as exactly as it says on the tin. No need to worry about how to implement a deployment method for the infrastructure you are running on. Harness simply lists the deployment methods and the infrastructure type you are deploying to and it just works.

Cons

Some of the behind the scenes configuration is slightly confusing (e.g. Harness delegate profiles) but once set-up correctly it works like a charm. Adding bespoke scripting to pipelines can be tricky with selecting the correct configuration options to run smoothly. When things go wrong, the debugging could be improved.

Reasons for Choosing Harness

Minimal development time and turn around for getting a pipeline up and running.

Decisive for performance and time to market

Pros

Easy, quick setup. And the value it brings to development teams in putting secure software into production.

Cons

Some things like reusing pipelines could be easier to setup.

Deployments with Harness are great

Pros

Implementing Blue/Green and other deployments is very intuitive, without much setup or management.

Cons

The Infrastructure as Code in Harness could be better implemented, but using the UI is very intuitive.

Solid product for CI/CD, would be even better with proper GitOps approach.

As a CI/CD product- Harness is pretty solid. The setup process is really easy and once you know to use most of its features- it's a pretty powerful product.

Pros

Config as Code is pretty great, especially due to the bi-directional sync with a Git repo. Also the verification step in a workflow could be really useful.

Cons

Not having the full GitOps functionality, specifically the reconciliation loop is something that is really missing from the product and would be very beneficial to have.

Great Tool to make life easier

Great experience overall, great customer service when we had doubts about the product. The software does what it says it does and really helps to make the CD easier.

Pros

The ease of use of the platform. It really helps in making the continuous deployment a smooth process. Once the pipeline is configured, it is really easy to make new deployments in different environments.

Cons

The price might be too expensive for a company that does not has the budget to
