Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""It is very useful for reviews. We are using branch merging operations and full reset operations. It is also very useful for merging our code and tracking another branch. The graph diagrams of Git are very useful. Its interface is straightforward and not too complex for us."

"Work distribution among team members and accountability for completion with a clearer picture.""Traceability reporting is inbuilt and includes all your requirements."

Cons
"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.""It can be free for commercial use."

"Teams need clearer pictures of resource availability in charts and dashboards along with plans.""The solution is very heavily vendor dependent."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I think that we pay approximately $100 USD per month.""The price is okay.""It seems reasonable. Our IT team manages the licenses.""Its price is fine. It is on the cheaper side and not expensive. You have to pay additionally for GitLab CI/CD minutes. Initially, we used the free version. When we ran out of GitLab minutes, we migrated to the paid version.""It is very expensive. We can't bear it now, and we have to find another solution. We have a yearly subscription in which we can increase the number of licenses, but we have to pay at the end of the year."

"Licensing: The solution cost is high and should be brought down to increase competition.""It's an expensive investment to make, so the decision should be driven on individual requirements."

Top Answer: Unfortunately, the solution is very heavily vendor dependent. It requires a strong partnership with IBM, and you rely on them for fixes or access to certain things. There are new fixes all the time… more »
