Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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."

More GitLab Pros »

"The initial setup of this solution was straightforward, and there were not too many problems with it.""You can see the work ticket and you can circulate that within the teams. You can define your flows, customize according to your needs, and you can create dashboards and create the reports according to your needs.""We had a nice experience with technical support.""It meets with everybody's needs without having to grab plugins."

Cons
"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."

More GitLab Cons »

"The interface for this solution needs to be made more user-friendly to provide a better user experience.""The most important thing for them to improve should be platform-independent features. They should also provide extensive pipelines and release pipelines that we can define and we can work on.""The ease-of-use could be improved a little.""Technical support needs some improvement."

More GitLab Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The license model is okay for large companies but would be quite expensive for smaller enterprises.""If the pricing would come down and it was more affordable then we wouldn't have to switch."
