GitLab Named a Leader in First-Ever Gartner Magic Quadrant for DevOps Platforms

GitLab, the leading AI-powered DevSecOps platform, recently announced that it has been recognized as a Leader in the first-ever 2023 Gartner Magic Quadrant for DevOps Platforms. Among the 14 DevOps Platforms vendors that were evaluated, GitLab was recognized as a Leader based on the criteria of “Completeness of Vision” and “Ability to Execute.”

Leaders, by Gartner’s definition, execute well against their current vision and are well positioned for tomorrow. According to the report, “DevOps platforms are emerging as a simpler alternative to DevOps toolchains, providing organizations with a consolidated set of integrated capabilities. Software engineering leaders should evaluate DevOps platforms as a means to accelerate delivery of customer value.”

GitLab empowers enterprises to build better software faster, increase operational efficiency, and enhance security and compliance. Customers using GitLab can get end-to-end value stream visibility, improve their developers’ productivity, increase software supply chain security, and accelerate migration to the cloud.

“Having GitLab has completely changed the way we approach reusable software because the place where we develop software is also the place that other people can share, contribute, and participate in that development,” says Alan Hohn, Director of Software Engineering at Lockheed Martin. “Now, all of our programs have access to a high-quality software development environment.”

According to Gartner Peer Insights, the average rating for GitLab based on 368 reviews from DevOps Platforms customers was 4.5 out of 5 in the DevOps Platforms market. Read some of the excerpts of reviews by customers in different industries here:
