GitLab Continuous Integration named a Leader in the Forrester Wave™
"Today Forrester has evaluated GitLab as a Leader in Continuous Integration in The Forrester Wave™: Continuous Integration Tools, Q3 2017 report. As the report states, “GitLab delivers ease of use, scalability, integration, and innovation.” We see CI/CD as a critical component of our offering, making it quicker and easier to deliver value through automation. The progress we’ve made in developing a CI/CD solution that’s seamlessly integrated is thanks largely to the participation and feedback of our community and customers.
We’re excited about what the future holds for GitLab CI/CD, so it’s great to know that others see its value. Furthermore Forrester states, “GitLab’s vision is to serve enterprise-scale, integrated software development teams that want to spend more time writing code and less time maintaining their tool chain.”
We’ve said it before (we say it a lot, actually): CI/CD is the cornerstone of modern software development. Delivering what customers want, faster, requires a modernized software development lifecycle that saves time, effort, and cost. Automation is key to this more efficient release cycle, which is why we’ve spent a lot of time developing our built-in test and release automation, so developers can spend less time stringing together their tool chain, and more on innovation and integrating customer feedback."
