We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"One of the big things that made us choose Bamboo, is it seamlessly integrates its APIs into NetSuite, which is our main ELP system."
"It's one of the best solutions in this line of work. We have many Atlassian products. We use Bamboo, JIRA, Service Desk, and some other Atlassian plugins. We like that it's easy to integrate into each other. It's a suite of services."
"The most valuable features are compiling and deployment."
"The dashboard and interface make it easy to use."
"We like that we can create branches and then the branches can be reviewed and you can mesh those branches back. You can independently work with your own branch, you don't need to really control the core of other people."
"Everything is easy to configure and easy to work with."
"A user friendly solution."
"It speeds up our development, it's faster, safer, and more convenient."
"The best thing is that as the developers work on separate tasks, all of the code goes there and the other team members don't have to wait on each other to finish."
"GitLab offers a good interface for doing code reviews between two colleagues."
"This product is always evolving, and they listen to the customers."
"The solution needs to support more customization in the training. What's offered is pretty generic. They need better training and should offer more guidance."
"It's a little outdated. It's three years old."
"The performance around the deployment feature could be improved."
"GitLab doesn't have AWS integration. It would be better to have integration with other container management environments beyond Kubernetes. It has very good integration with Kubernetes, but it doesn't have good integration with, for example, AWS, ETS, etc."
"I would like to see static analysis also embedded in GitLab. That would also help us. If there's something that it does internally by GitLab and then that is already tied up with your pipeline and then it can tell you that you're coding is good or your code is not great. Based on that, it would pass or fail. That should be streamlined. I would think that would help to a greater extent, in terms of having one solution rather than depending on multiple vendors."
"The only thing our company is really waiting on in terms of features is the development of metrics."
"Reporting could be improved."
"I would like to see better integration with project management tools such as Jira."
"The documentation could be improved to help newcomers better understand things like creating new branches."
"We are having a few problems integrating with Jira at the moment, which is something that our IT department is investigating."
"It would be really good if they integrated more features in application security."
"I think that we pay approximately $100 USD per month."
"The price is okay."
GitLab is a single application with features for the whole software development and operations (DevOps) lifecycle.
