Why we should use Jenkins instead of windows task scheduler

Jenkins provide a lot of utilities that we do not have it on windows task scheduler

  1. Integrated logging system : instead of writing log ourself, jenkins provide a integrated log system
  2. Succeed/Failing email notification : in task scheduler, we have to write a script to send email ourself ( i.e. using PowerShell, etc. ).
  3. Progress tracking via web-based : no need to remote desktop
  4. Manual trigger the job : no need to remote desktop
