GitLab is a complete DevOps platform that brings development, operations, and security teams into a single application. GitLab helps teams accelerate software delivery from weeks to minutes while reducing development costs and security risks.
“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.”Adam DehnelProduct Architect, BI WORLDWIDE

In GitLab, everyone looks at the same things. There is a single source of truth for every single change, and it is linked automatically to anything relevant. This is because GitLab is a single application. Project management, code review, continuous integration and delivery – and even application security and monitoring are all part of GitLab. This means:
We like to think of the DevOps lifecycle becoming a single conversation, where GitLab automatically links all relevant information together.
And this means one team no longer needs to wait for the handoff of another team. For example:
We call this Concurrent DevOps.
A shorter cycle allows you to skate to where the puck is going to be. That means it takes less time to go from an idea for a change to actually having that change live in a production environment, monitored and ready for scaling.
By shortening this time, you're able to respond to changing needs from the market faster, adjust your long-term plans with feedback you receive on the way, and radically reduce engineering risk.
A shorter cycle time allows you to immediately respond to changing needs. Rather than having to wait upwards of several months for the DevOps cycle to complete, with a short cycle you're able to adjust your plans quickly. With each iteration you complete, you get new opportunities to collect feedback. Be that low-level feedback on the performance of your products, or direct feedback from your customers. GitLab has monitoring built-in, so no time is wasted on trying to get information surfaced.
In addition to creating a shorter feedback cycle and being able to respond quicker to changing needs, a surprising advantage of shorter cycles is reduced engineering risk. Shorter cycles mean more and smaller frequent deploys, which have many advantages:
Shorter cycle times means feedback on security vulnerabilities is delivered directly to the responsible developer right in their merge request pipeline report. Even dynamic application security testing (DAST), that requires a working application, can be done prior to merging the branch, using GitLab's review app function. Many vulnerabilities can be removed during development without wasting cycles downstream for security teams to vet findings, prioritize and triage and then create tickets to remediate.
GitLab shortens your cycles by bringing everyone together and taking work out of your hands.
