GitLab has extraordinary breadth for a single application, providing an entire DevOps platform from portfolio planning all the way through to monitoring and service desk. As such, GitLab is uniquely positioned to provide a complete picture of your organization's DevOps journey and your return on investment in automation and DevOps practices.
