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.
- 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.
- 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)

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.

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

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
- 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.
