Jenkins is a deployment tool and contains a lot of plugins to make it easy to build or test software. We use this for all our DEV, TEST, UAT and PROD systems. Jenkins provides a clear list of all the different jobs and they are easily accessible.

Jenkins Pipeline

Jenkins Pipeline ("Pipeline") is a suite of plugins that supports the implementation and integration of continuous delivery pipelines in Jenkins. Pipeline offers a set of tools for modeling simple to complex pipelines "as code" through the Pipeline domain-specific language (DSL) syntax.
