Plan

Regardless of your process, GitLab provides powerful planning tools to keep everyone synchronized.

GitLab enables portfolio planning and management through epics, groups (programs) and milestones to organize and track progress.  GitLab helps teams organize, plan, align and track project work to ensure teams are working on the right things at the right time and maintain end to end visibility and traceability of issues throughout the delivery lifecycle from idea to production.

Create

Create, view, and manage code and project data through powerful branching tools.

GitLab helps teams design, develop and securely manage code and project data from a single distributed version control system to enable rapid iteration and delivery of business value. GitLab repositories provide a scalable, single source of truth for collaborating on projects and code which enables teams to be productive without disrupting their workflows.

Verify

Keep strict quality standards for production code with automatic testing and reporting.

GitLab’s industry leading CI capabilities enables automated testing, Static Analysis Security Testing, Dynamic Analysis Security testing and code quality analysis to provide fast feedback to developers and testers about the quality of their code. With pipelines that enable concurrent testing and parallel execution, teams quickly get insight about every commit, allowing them to deliver higher quality code faster.

Package

Create a consistent and dependable software supply chain with built-in package management.

The private, secure container registry and artifact repositories are built-in and preconfigured out-of-the box to work seamlessly with GitLab source code management and CI/CD pipelines. Ensure DevOps acceleration with automated software pipelines that flow freely without interruption.

Secure

Security capabilities, integrated into your development lifecycle.

GitLab provides Static Application Security Testing (SAST), Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST), Container Scanning, and Dependency Scanning to help you deliver secure applications along with license compliance.

Release

GitLab’s integrated CD solution allows you to ship code with zero-touch, be it on one or one thousand servers.

GitLab helps automate the release and delivery of applications, shortening the delivery lifecycle, streamlining manual processes, and accelerating team velocity. With zero-touch Continuous Delivery (CD) built right into the pipeline, deployments can be automated to multiple environments like staging and production, and the system just knows what to do without being told – even for more advanced patterns like canary deployments.

Configure

Configure your applications and infrastructure.

GitLab helps teams to configure and manage their application environments. Strong integration to Kubernetes reduces the effort needed to define and configure the infrastructure required to support your application. Protect access to key infrastructure configuration details such as passwords and login information by using ‘secret variables’ to limit access to only authorized users and processes.

Monitor

Automatically monitor metrics so you know how any change in code impacts your production environment.

You need feedback on what the effect of your release is in order to do release management. Get monitoring built-in, see the code change right next to the impact that it has so you can respond quicker and effectively. No need to babysit deployment to manually get feedback. Automatically detect buggy code and prevent it from affecting the majority of your users.

Defend

Defend your apps and infrastructure from security intrusions.

GitLab provides runtime application security, threat detection and management, data security, and application infrastructure security.

Manage Your Toolchain Before It Manages You

In a 2019 survey of IT professionals conducted by Forrester and sponsored by GitLab, they found that many software development teams are struggling with managing and integrating multiple tools and discrete toolchains.  This study dives into the challenges, potential solutions, and key recommendations to manage this evolving complexity.  

Out-of-the-box toolchain management systems are seen as the key to simplifying the complex world of toolchains, combining both tactical improvements around security, revenue, and quality, with strategic improvements around more easily implementing multicloud environments. 

The benefits of a single application CI/CD

This eBook shows how a single application optimizes workflows so teams can get the most out of their CI/CD.   Continuous Integration and Delivery (CI/CD) has changed the way we build, test, and deploy software. Releases that happened weekly, monthly, or more, can now be pushed several times a day. 

In order to take advantage of all that CI/CD has to offer, DevOps teams should vet solutions carefully and minimize toolchain complexity.
