GitLab provides unmatched visibility, higher levels of efficiency, and comprehensive governance. This makes the software lifecycle 3 times faster, radically improving the speed of business.
Excellent strategic vision and execution. If you want a holistic solution with a strategy around devops, then this is the solution you need. It provides a lot of native support for devops collaboration. The company also embodies devops and an open and transparent culture. Their company is 100% remote, and almost all of their internal documentation is published publicly so anyone can search it and submit changes back. This includes all of their HR documentation. I highly value the culture of a company when I'm evaluating doing business with someone, and this company ticks all the boxes for a strong culture fit with my company.
Not more useful than GitHub. It's generally a privatized interface, so only really visible for our company. The actual GUI is actually prettier too which is nice. Navigating to certain pages is a little easier too. Obviously, having version control for software development should be a requirement, and it's better than SVN which some of our...more senior colleagues use. Searching for specific code/scripts on gitlab appears to be easier.
