SAN FRANCISCO – June 7, 2023 – All Remote - GitLab Inc., the most comprehensive AI-powered DevSecOps platform, today announced it has been named a Leader in the first-ever 2023 Gartner Magic Quadrant for DevOps Platforms1. The Magic Quadrant, which evaluated 14 DevOps Platforms vendors, recognized GitLab as a Leader based on "Completeness of Vision" and "Ability to Execute."
According to Gartner, Leaders execute well against their current vision and are well positioned for tomorrow. The report states, “DevOps platforms are emerging as a simpler alternative to DevOps toolchains, providing organizations with a consolidated set of integrated capabilities. Software engineering leaders should evaluate DevOps platforms as a means to accelerate delivery of customer value.”
GitLab helps organizations accelerate their digital transformation initiatives through every step of the software development lifecycle, enabling them to build better software faster, increase operational efficiency, reduce security and compliance risk, and accelerate cloud transformations.
"Having GitLab has completely changed the way we approach reusable software because the place where we develop software is also the place that other people can share, contribute, and participate in that development,” said Alan Hohn, Director of Software Engineering, Lockheed Martin. “Now, all of our programs have access to a high-quality software development environment.”
“GitLab is constantly listening to our community and customers to identify key areas for growth and innovation, and over the past 12 months, we have made significant investments to help customers strengthen their software supply chain, meet complex compliance and regulatory needs, visualize their end-to-end value streams, and leverage AI to deliver secure software faster,“ said Ashley Kramer, Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer, GitLab. “We believe that our recognition as a Leader in the 2023 Magic Quadrant for DevOps Platforms further validates the value we provide to our customers and community.”
