Concurrent DevOps

Concurrent 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.

To illustrate the power of Concurrent DevOps, consider the difference between Microsoft Office and Google Docs:

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.

Everyone can contribute

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.

Connecting teams to accelerate innovation

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.
