We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"This is a very dependable product that is easy to use and it has an excellent GUI interface.""What I liked the most about this program is that it integrates seamlessly with JIRA.""The initial deployment is rather straightforward and only takes 30 minutes to an hour.""Bitbucket is a standard git implementation with perfectly coordinated screens, it's secure, and we have had no problems with it.""Code check in and code version control.""We have a couple of different tools that allow us to tie source code changes to report bugs. It's integrated with a bug tracking system and also integrated with what requires a tracking system. So we have better facilities. We get with the command line and can type all that stuff in and get the same kind of trust, but when we d it all manually, it's not likely to happen."

"There are many places where the product could be expanded to make it a more complete solution.""I think the developers are constantly working on improving the pull requests support.""The solution is not user-friendly. Right now, the solution is not so easy to understand. It needs to update its design and overall user experience.""The installation of Bitbucket on our server was not as easy as other Atlassian products, so it is something that can be improved.""Could provide some default branching options for users to adopt.""Even with the automation, we've had some situations where we've had mistakes. They've integrated things into the wrong place, so there's a fairly steep learning curve."
