GitLab — The Incremental Building of a DevOps Platform
This IDC study provides a deep dive into GitLab, a provider of DevOps tools, and examines the key elements of the GitLab DevOps platform. GitLab has experienced rapid growth and provided some disruption in the DevOps tools market by quickly putting together an end-to-end DevOps platform.
"Many organizations are grappling between using a DevOps platform or assembling their own DevOps tools stacks using best-of-breed tooling," said Jim Mercer, research director, DevOps. "However, it behooves organizations that are considering a DevOps platform to understand the lineage of GitLab, the company's approach toward software engineering, and the key technical capabilities available in the GitLab DevOps platform."
