Trial ? Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.

On remote teams, we sorely lack having a dedicated build monitor in the room; unfortunately, newer continuous integration (CI) tools lack support for the old CCTray format. The result is that broken builds aren't always picked up as quickly as we'd like. To solve this problem, many of our teams have started using xbar for build monitoring. With xbar, one can execute a script to poll build status, displaying it on the menu bar. It can be further scripted to track other team metrics such as pending credential expiries or how far the production release lags behind the user acceptance testing (UAT) release. Of course, xbar is more general purpose, but it solves an immediate and emergent problem caused by remote working. Rumps, among other tools, can solve the same problem.
