Ultimate introduces Project Insights and Portfolio Management in the product to increase organizational efficiencies.

~20 tools consolidated into GitLab; Glympse remediated security issues faster than any other company in their Security Auditor's experience

Development can move much faster when engineers can stay on one page and click buttons to release auditable changes to production and have easy rollbacks; everything is much more streamlined. Within one sprint, just 2 weeks, Glympse was able to implement security jobs across all of their repositories using GitLab’s CI templates and their pre-existing Docker-based deployment scripts.

This continuous feedback loop from customers, deployments and monitoring operations back into development helps enterprises create products relevant for customers, go to market faster and beat competition as well. With every change undergoing rigorous testing, security & compliance testing, and incremental deployment - Ultimate allows rapid, iterative deployment of better quality software. Ultimate enhances configuration and monitoring to deliver products faster.

Jenkins build took 3 hours, now with GitLab it takes 30 mins: a 6x improvement

GitLab has allowed Alteryx to have code reviews, source control, continuous integration, and continuous deployment all tied together and speaking the same language. The team took a build that was running legacy systems and moved it to GitLab. This build took 3 hours on the Jenkins machine and it took 30 minutes to run on GitLab after it was going. Engineers can actually look at the build and understand what’s going on; they’re able to debug it and make it successful

Reduce Security & Compliance Risk

Ultimate introduces capabilities to help reduce and manage risk from security and regulatory compliance by identifying vulnerabilities and compliance issues before the code ever leaves the developer's hands. Ultimate introduces Application Security Testing, Security Dashboards, and more advanced common controls and audit to reduce risks.

BI Worldwide performed 300 SAST/Dependency scans in the first 4 days of use helping the team identify previously unidentified vulnerabilities

One tool for SCM+CI/CD was a big initial win. Now wrapping security scans into that tool as well has already increased our visibility into security vulnerabilities. The integrated Docker registry has also been very helpful for us. Issue/Product management features let everyone operate in the same space regardless of role.
