Project planning, project management, and tracking. Live git integration and project monitor make it possible to develop software using Agile methodology. Also if you are on a very small budget, then one should not go for this tool. But great support.

Git

GIT is good to be used for faster and high availability operations during code release cycle. Git provides a complete replica of the repository on the developer's local system which is why every developer will have complete repository available for quick access on his system and they can merge the specific branches that they have worked on back to the centralized repository.The limitations with GIT are seen when checking in large files.

Pros

Backlog

  • Gantt chart
  • Github support
Sanyam Jain | TrustRadius Reviewer

Git

  • Ability to create branches off current releases to modify code that can be tested in a separate environment.
  • Each developer had their own local copy of branches so it minimizes mistakes being made.
  • Has a user-friendly UI called Git Gui that users can use if they do not like using the command line.
  • Conflicts are displayed nicely so that developers can resolve with ease.

Cons

Backlog

  • Price is very high for small teams and department of short term contracts.
  • GUI can be more intuitive.
Sanyam Jain | TrustRadius Reviewer

Git

  • There can be quite a number of commands once you get to the advanced features and functionality of Git. Takes time to master.
  • Doesn't handle static assets (ie: videos, images, etc.) well. Although in the recent years, new functionality has been introduced to address this.
  • Many different GUIs, many people (including myself) opt to just use the command-line.

Git has met all standards for a source control tool and even exceeded those standards. Git is so integrated with our work that I can't imagine a day without it.

Git is easy to use most of the time. You mostly use a few commands like commiting, fetch/pull, and push which will get you by for most of time.

I would give 9 but one less because of the high price.

I am not sure what the official Git support channels are like as I have never needed to use any official support. Because Git is so popular among all developers now, it is pretty easy to find the answer to almost any Git question with a quick Google search. I've never had trouble finding what I'm looking for.

All of them have their own uniqueness.

Git

I've used both Apache Subversion & Git over the years and have maintained my allegiance to Git. Git is not objectively better than Subversion. It's different.
The key difference is that it is decentralized. With Subversion, you have a problem here: The SVN Repository may be in a location you can't reach (behind a VPN, intranet - etc), you cannot commit. If you want to make a copy of your code, you have to literally copy/paste it. With Git, you do not have this problem. Your local copy is a repository, and you can commit to it and get all benefits of source control. When you regain connectivity to the main repository, you can commit against it. Another thing for consideration is that Git tracks content rather than files. Branches are lightweight and merging is easy, and I mean really easy.
It's distributed, basically every repository is a branch. It's much easier to develop concurrently and collaboratively than with Subversion, in my opinion. It also makes offline development possible. It doesn't impose any workflow, as seen on the above linked website, there are many workflows possible with Git. A Subversion-style workflow is easily mimicked.

Return on Investment

Backlog

  • Software interns get easily used to this tool.
  • One who works in the SDLC gets recognized and it's easy to track rank board.
Sanyam Jain | TrustRadius Reviewer

Git

  • Git has saved our organization countless hours having to manually trace code to a breaking change or manage conflicting changes. It has no equal when it comes to scalability or manageability.
  • Git has allowed our engineering team to build code reviews into its workflow by preventing a developer from approving or merging in their own code; instead, all proposed changes are reviewed by another engineer to assess the impact of the code and whether or not it should be merged in first. This greatly reduces the likelihood of breaking changes getting into production.
  • Git has at times created some confusion among developers about what to do if they accidentally commit a change they decide later they want to roll back. There are multiple ways to address this problem and the best available option may not be obvious in all cases.
