Overall easy to use, simple code sending, but more documentation needed
Pros and Cons
  • "The solution is easy to use. If I need to check out my latest code or I need to send my local code to the depositories it is simple. Overall it is has been a good experience from my side using this solution."
  • "One of the areas the solution could improve on is when there is a merging conflict it is quite confusing. When I am having a merging conflict I get stuck on the page, then I need to search how to handle the particular problem. For example, finding what the commands are which can be used."

What is our primary use case?

We are using Bitbucket for the code checking and tracking of our project depositories which we have locally. This includes code changes in software development. 

How has it helped my organization?

Bitbucket has helped our company stay current with our updated code daily.

What is most valuable?

The solution is easy to use. If I need to check out my latest code or I need to send my local code to the depositories it is simple. Overall it is has been a good experience from my side using this solution.

What needs improvement?

One of the areas the solution could improve on is when there is a merging conflict it is quite confusing. When I am having a merging conflict I get stuck on the page, then I need to search how to handle the particular problem. For example, finding what the commands are which can be used. 

I might not have the proper knowledge of it. However, the merging processes can be difficult and could be made easier. Overall there should be better documentation available. When I first started out it would have been very helpful because I had to search to find out how to use the solution.

In an upcoming release, the solution could improve the collaboration. Additionally, there should be some startup tool or features for whenever we have local changes or updates it will prevent us from submitting any change unless they have been removed locally. For example, 
there should be some sort of command tool that can remove my local code first and then checking it by taking code from the latest one to resolve it.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Bitbucket within the last 12 months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of the solution is good. However, there have been times I had to close the program down and restart it.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable and it is not very difficult to do.

We have approximately 10 people using this solution in my organization which includes various teams, such as the automation department.

We use this solution every day and frequently, we plan to continue using it in the future.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have used a previous version that was not user-friendly. Additionally, I have used GitHub.

What about the implementation team?

We have one technician that does the maintenance of the solution.

What other advice do I have?

I rate Bitbucket a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
