When I compared different version control tools, I found Bitbucket to be one of the most effective ones currently available on the market.
One of the things that I initially noticed about Bitbucket is that it integrates seamlessly with JIRA, which really adds value to our organization. This integration allows us to see the task effects on a JIRA task and Git. We have also integrated it with Slack. We get informative comments in a pool request if we do a full request using Slack on our team channels. It's far more convenient to check Bamboo to see if this code has been released. This is especially crucial if the code is used to troubleshoot production issues.
One of the features of Bitbucket that I really appreciate is its scalability. The solution is scalable and it is not very difficult to do. In my organization, about ten employees use this product, including members of diverse teams such as the automation department. We use this solution with frequency, daily. We plan to continue using it in the future, even as the business grows.
A major benefit of Bitbucket is the simplicity it offers for code checking and tracking of our project depositories which we have locally. This includes software development code changes. Bitbucket has aided our organization in keeping our code updated on a daily basis. It's straightforward for me to check out my most recent code or send my local code to the depositories.
Another feature I value is the simplicity of the initial setup. Because it's a cloud version, we did not need to do any kind of setup with it. We initially started using the trial version of it for 30 days. We created some repositories and started accessing it. Later on, we upgraded to the Enterprise version. There were no issues at all in setting it up.
Another one of Bitbucket’s key features is its stability. Bitbucket is a standard git implementation with perfectly coordinated screens and we have had no problems with its stability. We use it quite heavily because all of our applications and updates are handled on different branches in Bitbucket.
We use a handful of different tools to connect source code updates to bug reports. Bitbucket integrated with our bug tracking system and also integrated with our requirement tracking system, so now we have more robust facilities. We can integrate these solutions using command line hooks, whereas when we do it all manually, it's not likely to happen.
This solution has improved our organization because it has simplified and streamlined our developer communication code and review process. It also made these much more visual. Bitbucket's traceability is great. Being able to see pool requests is of great value when we are collaborating.
Ultimately this solution empowers our team to generate quality code through automated testing and allows us to deploy code with confidence.

We are using the minimum package with ten users and we are happy with the price because we are a small company. With our small number of users, our licensing fees are approximately $10 USD per month. There are no fees in addition to this.
