Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution's most valuable aspect is that it is vendor-agnostic and it has a file called Manifest, which makes it possible for developers, ops people, and system admins to cooperate."

"I have had no problem with the stability of the solution.""The scalability is good.""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.""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.""Of all available products, it was the easiest to use and easy to install.""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.""A user friendly solution.""As a developer, this solution is useful as a repository holder because most of the POC projects that we have are on GitLab."

"The solution currently has a bug that causes performance issues. They need to resolve this in a future release."

More Deploy Cons →

"The only thing our company is really waiting on in terms of features is the development of metrics.""Perhaps the integration could be better.""I would like more Agile features in the Premium version. The Premium version should have all Agile features that exist in the Ultimate version. IBM AOM has a complete Agile implementation, but in GitLab, you only have these features if you buy the Ultimate version. It would be good if we can use these in the Premium version.""Reporting could be improved.""The documentation could be improved to help newcomers better understand things like creating new branches.""GitLab's Windows version is yet not available and having this would be an improvement.""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 price of GitLab could improve, it is high."

  • "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."
  • "I don't mind the price because I use the free version."
  • "We are using its free version, and we are evaluating its Premium version. Its Ultimate version is very expensive."
  • "The price of GitLab could be better, it is expensive."

    Top Answer:When I was hired (in 2020) they told me that they were using an open-source version. I'm not sure if that's still the case as it's a quite big company. Nowadays they should be using some kind of paid… more »
