    This product has huge capacity to run millions of jobs per month, can serve to enterprise level of business. If client is looking for platform base solution which can be deployed on-prem or cloud base technologies then this solution works well. It has very good licensing mechanism which is based on number of agents, and there is no limitation of number of jobs run. So client has not to worry on limitation of jobs and can scale of the automation in the environment. This reduced the total cost of ownership of product. Self service automation feature can reduce the client automation cost significantly. it has good batch job coverages from Mainframe to Microservices.

    Gitlab is a good platform for collaboration with the team, version control, and optimized way to handle the modifications in the project. GitLab is less appropriate in some cases, though it has a lot of options for integration, new users find it difficult to integrate; there is also room for improvement.

    • The way they have managed to provide the version management aspect using git with project setup and users is mesmerising cause there's no product out there that gives this freely.
    • Continuous updates and hearing what users need is what the product engineers at GitLab are doing best. They come back to you with exactly what you need every while.
    • Quality features, Latest tech integrations have made the end-to-end solution very flexible and agile.
    • CI/CD tools implementation with pipelines and deployment strategies is just making the job for Infra teams smoother.

    Cons

    Broadcom

    • Support. Many companies, at least in Europe, now get support from resellers.
    • The user interface is actually not well suited for non-technical users.

    GitLab

    • Sometimes, it is really challenging to manage conflicts when a lot of merge requests are coming for multiple separate branches to the main branch.
    • One area of improvement for the software, is sometimes, the interface can work slower
    • A few times, we have faced difficulties testing CI builds locally.

      GitLab

      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.

      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.

      GitLab

      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

      Broadcom

      1. Cost was the major factor without compromising the automation service which this product delivered. Other products are expensive and deliver the same outcome. 2. Limitation of job run, Broadcom Automic Automation allows to run unlimited jobs and helps to increase automation capability. 3. Number of automation packs available with no extra license cost. 4. Depth of coverage of technologies for batch job automation. 5. Required less number of hardware to achieve high availability.

      We have a small custom code development group. We only needed a basic entry-level code management repository. Gitlab meets our needs and is very price advantageous compared to others on the market. We also needed a system that is easy to administer and easy to grant access to our limited-size user base. Gitlab does what we need and gives the necessary flexibility for application support, user administration, and code/version control needs to be required.

      Return on Investment

      Broadcom

      • Hours of server operations given over to end-users.
      • Single pipelines for job plan execution reduced the operational overhead.

      GitLab

      • 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.
