Gitlab- The complete
DevOps platform

One application with endless possibilities. Organizations rely on GitLab’s source code management, CI/CD, security, and more to deliver software rapidly.

GitLab is a complete DevOps platform, delivered as a single application, fundamentally changing the way Development, Security, and Ops teams collaborate and build software. From idea to production, GitLab helps teams improve cycle time from weeks to minutes, reduce development costs and time to market while increasing developer productivity

Use Case

Before we get into GitLab’s details, let’s first get an understanding of its relevance by taking a look at a use case — Goldman Sachs.

Challenges

  1. To increase software quality and developer efficiency, enable concurrent development activities, and achieve faster development cycles.
  2. To find a tool that could remove toolchain complexity and manage everything in one user interface (UI).

What GitLab does

GitLab is a single application that spans the entire software development lifecycle. If you’re not using GitLab, your DevOps lifecycle is likely spread across any number of applications. These silos take overhead to integrate, manage, configure, and maintain, slowing down your team and your deployments. Moving to a single application will speed up your workflow and help you deliver better software, faster. Learn how GitLab can replace any number of your existing applications.

Open source and open core

GitLab is an open source project with over 3,000 contributors maintained by GitLab Inc. You can install and self-manage GitLab Core under and MIT license or use GitLab’s commercial software built on top of the open source edition with additional features. We call this, “open core.”
