We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"GitLab is very useful for pipelines, continuous integration, and continuous deployment. It is also stable."
"The most valuable features of Gitlab are integration with CIE and the ability to rapidly deploy solutions, projects, and applications. It is very easy to use, and there are no complaints."
"We like that we can have an all-encompassing product and don't have to implement different solutions."
"A user friendly solution."
"This product is always evolving, and they listen to the customers."
"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."
"I like that it's easy to deploy our services over GitLab. The customer support is also good with a really active community. You have a lot of support that you can get online with your stack. That is probably one of the benefits of using GitLab. It's also really fast."
"I have had no problem with the stability of the solution."
"The reporting is very useful because you can always view an entire list of the issues that you have."
"We are having a few problems integrating with Jira at the moment, which is something that our IT department is investigating."
"The solution could improve by providing more integration into the CI/CD pipeline, an autocomplete search tool, and more supporting documentation."
"It would be really good if they integrated more features in application security."
"The documentation could be improved to help newcomers better understand things like creating new branches."
"I would like to see better integration with project management tools such as Jira."
"It could have more security integrations and the ability to check the vulnerability of the code. I don't think it is a responsibility of Gitlab, but it would be nice to have more options to integrate with."
"The only thing our company is really waiting on in terms of features is the development of metrics."
"Reporting could be improved."
"We are having issues with false positives that need to be resolved."
"It seems reasonable. Our IT team manages the licenses."
"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."
"I don't mind the price because I use the free version."
"The price is okay."
"I think that we pay approximately $100 USD per month."
"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."
