    My experience in Asana is more than two years, and I really enjoyed the experience and working with my teams, as Asana provides effective communication between us and spread the fun, enthusiasm, and achievement in work faster, as I used conversations to inform the team what I want, follow up, comment on the tasks and inform them that the work is finished.

    GitLab

    Gitlab is well suited for having a DevOps environment with version control and running CICD pipelines. It is well suited for large teams who are working on the development projects where there are a lots of experiments done. It helps easy merging codes with conflicts with multiple teammates in an organization.

    Pros

    Asana

    • Easy to use by any user (good UX and no installation needed)
    • Easy to create a simple project, add tasks and sub tasks.
    • Different display options, according to the project/tasks type
    • Works great using a web browser, you don't have to install the application
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    GitLab

    • Safeguards implemented are customizable and allow our organization to set our level of verification before merging.
    • One of the smoothest and most well-organized version control software products on the market.
    • Super widespread use so our use of GitLab is understandable and usable by the customer with little "translation" as to what we are doing and what they are doing.
    Brock Haft | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Asana

    • Some users might find the user interface a bit dull and un inspired
    • We found the way to use multiple workspaces a bit confusing
    • It takes quite a bit of planning to build a well organized workspace in order not to have way too many projects and tasks all over the place
    Louis Schietekat | TrustRadius Reviewer

    GitLab

    • GitLab could improve some of the confusion around how permissions work (sometimes unclear why one user can do an action, but not another)
    • GitLab should provide a way to rerun a merge pipeline, without rerunning the original Merge Request pipeline
    • When jobs fail, it would be awesome if every user could see the information on the runner and the versions of the software it is running on (to better debug the issue)

    • Mobile + Desktop capabilities - Able to use it anywhere, anytime.
    • Task management - Easy to view projects and their progress.
    • Time management - Easy to see what elements require time / how they interrelate and manage the project on an overall basis.
    • Company management - Be able to see from a master dashboard perspective where each project is in its stages of completion.
    • Clear communication - It's visually documented who is doing what at what time so that the whole project gets done.

    Gitlab is the best in its segment. They have a free version, they have open-source software, they provide a good service with their SaaS product, they are a fully-remote company since the beginning (which means they are fully distributed and have forward-thinking IMO). I would certainly recommend them to everyone.

    It is very user-friendly. Takes a new employee an hour to start figuring out how the system works. That's an important factor. You don't want to encounter the issue where employees need a week to understand how the system works. For example, JIRA, I tried using it for a week and I still don't understand the complicated layout. Asana has a simple interface. Once you see it, you get it type of program.

    The web console management is superior and I would have given Gitlab a 10, but sometimes it is hard to find documentation about a configuration setting in the gitlab.rb configuration file. As we move everything to code that means moving our CVS tools to code as well - and Gitlab to code. The usability of Gitlab from the end user's perspective is superior and the usability from the operations team is very good and getting better but there could be a little improvement in the gitlab.rb config file layout and documentation.

    I haven't had to use their support so I can't rate it. The fact that I haven't needed them reflects the ease of use of the product. I would recommend that any new users schedule a complete demo of the product to ensure that they are using it to it's fullest (there's a lot of useful features).

    At this point, I do not have much experience with Gitlab support as I have never had to engage them. They have documentation that is helpful, not quite as extensive as other documentation, but helpful nonetheless. They also seem to be relatively responsive on social media platforms (twitter) and really thrived when GitHub was acquired by Microsoft

    Alternatives Considered

    Asana

    I like how extensive the capabilities are for Asana. With other softwares it seems there are many things lacking. I feel like Asana is also a very user friendly platform and aesthetically pleasing which is important in a modern office. We have many young people entering our workspace and it is important to have software that is ahead of the times in functionality and efficiency.

    GitLab

    The first thing is other products except GitLab is there is very costly and does not have any customise thing. Gitlab is an open-source license product that makes its use easier and more cost-effective that's why we have chosen Gitlab among other products with the same features. The other products like GitLab and Bitbucket have limited numbers of repositories provided as private in the free plan for more Repos we need to purchase their plan which is expensive.

    Return on Investment

    Asana

    • Productivity - Most of all, it allows me to be more productive and have a good sense of where I am with projects and deadlines.
    • Easy to use - I can make the most of my time to get up (and stay) up and running.
    • Project coordination - Allows me to assign tasks to my interns and communicate directly within the platform to keep the work train moving.

    • We are moving towards Gitlab only as our SCM & CI tool. So it would be an alternative to Jenkins. Saving our licensing cost there.
    • We have also stopped using Confluence & using Gitlab for our documentation purposes. Reducing cost there as well.
