GitLab Inc. (NASDAQ: GTLB), provider of The One DevOps Platform, has announced the launch of its next major iteration, GitLab 15 – starting with its first release version, 15.0. With its latest release, GitLab offers organisations a purpose-built, unified DevOps platform that allows teams to focus on driving business transformation.
According to a recent Bain study, 90% of companies have stated that DevOps is a top priority, but only 12% believe their DevOps practices are mature. While many organisations have integrated various DevOps point solutions, these tools are often time- and resource-intensive, working against business-critical missions and halting innovation.
“In today’s highly competitive landscape, organisations are under more pressure than ever to deliver software faster and more securely. They need a more mature, comprehensive platform to improve their time to market,” said David DeSanto, VP of Product at GitLab. “GitLab solves this problem with The One DevOps Platform. Organisations can do away with their do-it-yourself (DIY) DevOps toolchains and bring teams together from planning to product in a single application, enabling them to ship secure code faster, achieve business results, and improve their teams’ experience and collaboration.”
A slate of upcoming releases are anticipated to enhance the platform’s capabilities in the following solution areas:
Visibility and Observability Remove Silos and Drive Efficiency:
GitLab 15 provides new capabilities that aim to extend visibility and enable companies with an end-to-end view of value delivery and application health. These new capabilities can help shorten lead times from code to production, reduce error frequency and severity, help development teams deploy more frequently, and reduce time to recover after an incident.
Continuous Security and Compliance:
With its latest release, GitLab strengthens its ability to help enforce compliance across the entire software development lifecycle and provides built-in security scanning and compliance auditing features, enabling development teams to focus on software innovation without adding more tools or getting in the way of product delivery.
Enterprise Agile Planning and Workflow Automation
GitLab 15 is set to enhance planning capabilities to allow greater flexibility, support a wider variety of workflows and interlink data across every stage of the DevOps lifecycle, from initial analysis, to planning, implementation, deployment, and monitoring. Additionally, GitLab will enrich its DevOps platform with machine learning capabilities, making existing features more automated, improving time to value, and reducing decision-making cycles.
Support for Data Science Teams and Workloads
Machine learning is an essential component of developing software today and with GitLab 15, data scientists will be able to deploy data science models more efficiently, reduce coordination challenges, obtain insights faster, and learn from their own data over time. ModelOps use cases will also be empowered, allowing data science teams to collaborate closely with stakeholders to deliver the best user experience.
The GitLab 15.0 release is available now. See here for full details on current and planned upcoming key features, or sign up to attend the upcoming GitLab 15 webinar on June 23, 2022, for more information.
