"Kohsuke Kawaguchi, one of the main developers of Jenkins and the founder of Hudson, the CI server from which Jenkins was forked, says all software companies should implement a tool like Jenkins.

It collects information from the problems and regressions so that developers can just act on them. It also increases the transparency of the software development, making it easier for people related to the project, such as managers, developers of the other components who depend on it, QA people, operations people, and so on, to get insights on the project without bothering the developers, and without causing any additional overhead. Improved transparency also means improved predictability.'"
