    The user interface is very good. It is more intuitive in nature. It is easy to use and robust in operation. The dashboard is designed on modernized UI and the interface is also intuitive. I can easily navigate things on my own.

    GitHub

    Best suited:
    • When we want to setup an automated deployment pipeline.
    • When we need a repository while working on open source projects supported by a huge community.
    • If you want to deploy the programs in cloud platforms. Tested on platforms like AWS, Azure, GCP, Heruko.
    Less appropriate:
    • When the need is just for version control. GitHub is more than that.

    Pros

    Backlog

    • Gantt chart
    • Github support

    GitHub

    • GitHub's ease of use is one of its biggest strengths. The site is structured around Git, a code version control system, which is used by developers around the world. GitHub's UI is minimal and allows you to focus on what's important, whether it be your branches, pull requests, or issues.
    • GitHub's integrations and tools are fairly ubiquitous. You'll likely find an integration with GitHub on every development tool with integrations. This makes it easy to incorporate in whatever workflow you may have.
    • GitHub is incredibly reliable. I don't remember the last time it was down for any significant period of time. This is essential for companies that rely on it for their daily operations.

    Cons

    Backlog

    • The biggest drawback that I want Backlog to fix as soon as possible is that is does not provide any place to explain the problem or bug virtually.
    • There is a need for a tab or space to attach screenshot or video to easily explain the bug or problem in the project.

    GitHub

    • When browsing history of a file, GitHub could make it easier to see the file after a particular commit instead of just being able to quickly view the commit. I'd like to be able to see the commit or the file itself in one click.
    • I would like to be able to view commits by user.
    • I would love to be able to traverse code on GitHub (go to definition, etc) - the good news here is that they are working on these features!

    - Easy to use compared to other version control software. UI interface makes it easy to use, as well as protects against making a major mistake by deleting code, etc.- UI looks modern.- Support for multiple platforms, which I assume will only get better with time.- Student benefits are awesome!- The size limitations on their repositories make sense to me. Not too crazy but realistic from a business perspective.

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

    Never had the need to use GitHub's customer support. The tool is already very intuitive, has a lot of FAQ on their website, or you can easily find your needs by just googling the issue. Also, GitHub has abundant documentation online for any specific scenario that the user may have.

    Backlog

    Backlog has all of the top-notch features to increase productivity, visibility, and project tracking. Backlog is easy to use. I first just logged in to the platform and it was [ready] to go. I easily started working on it and it started giving me the bugs’ details on our project. Always available for queries. Listen to the queries very attentively and try to give a solution on the go if applicable. Otherwise, take some time and respond with the advanced workable solution in the limited time frame.

    At the time to evaluation - Bitbucket was very tightly integrated into Atlassian’s suite of tools. For an organization that is starting out and looking to spend limited funds effectively - the cost/benefit of using that suite of tools usually doesn’t make sense. Granted things may have changed since then (its been over 5 years) - but at the time GitHub was effective - and all prospective engineers knew about it and already had accounts. This made it very easy to add to the organization and not lose time in training, etc. Developers seem to really love GitHub above most other tools out there - so that plays into the decision making as well.

    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

    GitHub

    • Github has increased our rate of code development, increasing our publishing rate. This helps bring attention to the research we are doing and ultimately brings in more funding for further research.
    • Because GitHub makes my team more efficient, we are able to put more hours into code development / report writing rather than agonizing over different versions of code created without version control software.
    • We use a paid version of GitHub, because we work through private repositories, but the increase in productivity, efficiency, and research progress is definitely worth the price.
