Version Control Roadmap Comparison

Background

On July 28, 2020 GitHub announced their roadmap will be made public. GitLab welcomes this move by GitHub since it ensures greater transparency and enables customers to more easily compare the product direction and potential benefits to their DevOps processes.

GitLab has provided VC&C use case since its inception. Likewise, GitHub also traces its DNA and strengths to this use case.

This page highlights two aspects:

  • Compares the VC&C capability as documented in GitHub roadmap with similar GitLab capability. It also shows dates when those capabilities were available or planned for availability.
  • Highlights select additional capability present in GitLab, that is not yet reflected in the GitHub’s roadmap.

For the full details on GitLab roadmap please visit the GitLab Directions page. GitLab also measures its overall maturity against various DevOps Stages. This self-assessment can be found here in the Product Maturity page.
