This is ridiculously easy to use and build very complex pipelines for CI deployments. It has saved huge amounts of dev-ops time for use and allows for some quite niche commands to run when we trigger deployments.

Buddy is an excellent CI/CD platform that empowers your team. DevOps works best when everyone can contribute and doesn't have to be the perfect Linux guru. Buddy gets that, it is way better than most of the others on that front.
