Jenkins has released the results of its 2016 Community Survey, and it shows strong growth for the open source tool among enterprises adopting DevOps and agile software development methodologies. Key findings included the following:
- 85 percent of respondents increased their use of Jenkins last year.
- 54 percent of organizations practicing continuous delivery are using Jenkins.
- 90 percent of those surveyed say Jenkins is mission critical.
“As an ever-increasing number of teams implement DevOps, we are seeing them naturally turn to Jenkins as the de facto business-critical solution for Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery,” said Sacha Labourey, CEO and cofounder of CloudBees. “The survey and increasing usage statistics reflect how adoption continues to grow despite an already massive installed base, all while the community’s involvement keeps increasing. The project has delivered on a multitude of themes such as user experience, container support and pipeline automation. All needs, by the way, expressed in past Jenkins community surveys; the community pays attention to its users.”
