Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I like GitLab from the CI/CD perspective. It is much easier to set up CI/CD and then integrate with other tools.""GitLab integrates well with other platforms.""We like that we can have an all-encompassing product and don't have to implement different solutions.""I have had no problem with the stability of the solution.""Everything is easy to configure and easy to work with.""GitLab is very useful for pipelines, continuous integration, and continuous deployment. It is also stable.""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.""A user friendly solution."

"Permission separations mean that we can grant limited permissions for each team or team member."

More GoCD Pros →

"It should be used by a larger number of people. They should raise awareness.""It would be really good if they integrated more features in application security.""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.""We would like to generate document pages from the sources.""The solution could improve by providing more integration into the CI/CD pipeline, an autocomplete search tool, and more supporting documentation.""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.""It can be free for commercial use."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "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."
