[Concurrent DevOps](/topics/devops/) is a new way of thinking about how we create and ship software. Rather than organizing work in a sequence of steps and handoffs, the power of working concurrently is in unleashing collaboration across the organization.Download concurrent devops whitepaper

Collaborate without waiting
Develop and operate with confidence
To illustrate the power of Concurrent DevOps, consider the difference between Microsoft Office and Google Docs:
One person edits at a time
Multiple copies (hand offs)
Waiting for feedback
Many people edit at the same time
Real time feedback
Traditional software development is typically sequential, where work flows from one team to another. Not unlike how documents are developed using Microsoft Word. A Concurrent DevOps culture is different and promotes agile software development as well as improved collaboration. Teams can collaborate and contribute to new features early and often within the application lifecycle. This dramatically shortens cycle times and accelerates the software delivery process because everyone can contribute much earlier.
Whether you’re a developer, an engineer, a product manager, a security expert, or a Product Designer, you need to collaborate with a lot of different people to get work done. However, getting everyone on board isn’t always easy. That’s why we created GitLab.
We believe teams work best when everyone is able to easily and efficiently contribute to the development process. At GitLab, we set out to make this easy for teams of all types and sizes by creating a single, shared space that allows everyone to work concurrently, get all the information needed in one place, and see changes in real-time.
GitLab accelerates your software development and delivery across every stage of the DevOps lifecycle.Learn more →
