It is user-friendly, open-source, easy to install, and doesn’t need any additional components or installations.
It is completely free.
It can be configured easily. Also, modifying and extending Jenkins is easy. You can use it for deploying code instantly, generating test reports, etc. Basically, it can be configured according to the developers’ need for continuous delivery and continuous integration.
Jenkins is independent of the platforms. It can be used on any platform and operating system whether Windows, Linus, or OS X.
It has an extensive pool of plugins that makes Jenkins flexible to build, deploy, and automate across different platforms.
Because Jenkins is a widely used, open-source tool, you can get easy support from the large online community.
To ensure that no time is wasted on large-scale, error-ridden integrations, developers can write tests for detecting the errors of the code as soon as possible.
Issues can be detected and resolved immediately, that keeps the software in a production-ready state.
The integration work is mostly automated. So, there are fewer issues related to integration. This saves money and time.
