Why Premium/Silver?

GitLab Premium/Silver

Premium / Silver is ideal for scaling organizations and for multi team usage. Premium enables enterprises scale their DevOps delivery with progressive deployment, advanced configuration, and consistent standards. Premium enables enterprises to:

Increase Operational Efficiencies

To cater to scaling enterprises, Premium introduces capabilities that allow enterprises analyze team, project and group trends to uncover patterns and setup consistent standards to improve overall productivity. With the introduction of the Service Desk capabilities in Premium, a feedback loop from customers back to development is established, thereby allowing teams to spend more time on capabilities that bring maximum value to your customers.

90% of Paessler's QA is self served - the QA engineer’s tasks have been slashed from about an hour a day to 30 seconds, a 120x speed increase

Every branch gets tested, it’s built into the pipeline. As soon as you commit your code, the whole process kicks off to get it tested. The amount of effort involved in actually getting to the newest version that you’re supposed to be testing, whether you’re a developer or a QA engineer, is minimized immensely.
