If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Bitbucket, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
This solution is good and it covers all our needs. Periodically, I receive announcements from Atlassian, mostly concerning the security features. They are fixing the newly discovered vulnerabilities and also, there are some other improvements in the features. Normally, I am not affected by the new features because we don't require them. My advice is to start using this solution because it works very well and we are very satisfied with the functionality. If somebody knows how to configure git for libraries then they can implement Bitbucket as well. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.
We use the cloud deployment model. We use the solution pretty extensively, but it depends on the client and the project. I'd suggest those considering implementing the solution try all the functionalities in the trial period. That way you can decide if it will work for your projects. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
My advice to others would be that, if they are looking for a stable on-premises solution, Bitbucket is the obvious choice. They can even use it if they are looking for a cloud solution, but we have a restriction that we have to run it on-premises. Therefore I think it's the smallest, best solution for us. I think it's worth paying for the extra features because otherwise you end up spending a lot of time configuring open source products. On a scale from one to 10, I rate Bitbucket a nine.
On a scale from one to ten, where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate this product as an eight. I love this product, so actually eight may actually not be good enough for the rating. On the other hand, there is a lot that could be incorporated or improved.
