Jenkins is one of the leading open source automation servers, providing countless plugins to support the building, deployment, and automation of any project. Jenkins can almost be described as a CI/CD framework, because much of the logic needed to automate a project is achieved through plugins. This gives the server a greater advantage over other CI/CD servers, because any new language, framework, or tool can be easily set up on Jenkins through these plugins.
Jenkins also provides an effective separation of concerns for everyone involved in the software’s life cycle. For instance, developers get to focus on their code; the quality assurance team is solely responsible for quality measures because testing is automated through Jenkins.
