Quotes From Members

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

"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."

More GitLab Pros »

"It provides repeatable CI/CD throughout our company with lots of feedback on failures and successes to the intended audiences via email and Slack.""I have not yet implemented the remote build feature, but this will be a big plus. We want to be able to build legacy products on a build agent without developers needing to have obsolete tool sets installed on their local PC.""The flexibility of TeamCity allows it to fit in workflows that I have yet to imagine.""The most valuable aspect of the solution is its easy configuration. It also has multiple plugins that can be used especially for building .net applications.""TeamCity is very useful due to the fact that it has a strong plug-in system."

"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."

More GitLab Cons »

"It will benefit this solution if they keep up to date with other CI/CD systems out there.""Their online documentation is fairly extensive, but sometimes you can end up navigating in circles to find answers. I would like them (or partner with someone)​ to provide training classes to help newcomers get things up and running more quickly.""If there was more documentation that was easier to locate, it would be helpful for users.""If TeamCity could create more out of the box solutions to make it more user friendly and create more use cases, that would be ideal."
