GitLab started as an open source project to help teams collaborate on software development. By delivering new functionality at an industry-leading pace, GitLab now provides a single application for the entire software development and operations lifecycle. GitLab provides everything you need to Manage, Plan, Create, Verify, Package, Release, Configure, Monitor, and Secure your applications.

Compare GitLab to other tools

If you're not using GitLab today, your DevOps lifecycle is spread across any number of applications. These silos take overhead to integrate, manage, configure, and maintain, slowing down your team. Moving to a single application will speed up your workflow and help you deliver better software, faster.
