As a team we have many years of experience using a plethora of different solutions for storing code. Everything from paid solutions like Jira and Bitbucket, all the way to hand-written custom solutions to store assembler code. In the end, we’ve settled on Gitlab as a great industry standard solution for all our clients. Among the many reasons, just a few that are key to our own success are:
While there are other Git management solutions that are light-weight, they lack everything else we need (and use) in a product management solution.
Hopefully this helps to highlight why we prefer to stick with a full-featured product like Gitlab.
Our team has automation, best practices, and standard operating procedures to help you quickly implement Gitlab for both new and existing software projects rather than doing the trial and error work yourself to figure it out!
