Why Gitlab is better than Bitbucket?

While both Gitlab and Bitbucket are used for maintaining repositories. Gitlab is way ahead of Bitbucket in this aspect. It has a requirement score of about 54.5 out of 73 which accounts to 75% of the requirements while Bitbucket has a disappointing requirement point of about 10 out of 73 which only accounts to 14% of the requirements.

Gitlab is almost reigning over Bitbucket in almost every aspect which results in managing, planning, verifying, packaging, securing, releasing, configuring, monitoring, defending, etc.

In management only Subgroups are present in Bitbucket while missing things like audit events, audit reports, compliance management, code analytics, DevOps Reports, insights, Value stream management, etc.

In planning Bitbucket misses a lot which includes Kanban Boards, time tracking, epics, roadmaps, service desk, requirements management, quality management, etc.

In the creating portion, Bitbucket comes with a competition with Gitlab but still misses elements like Static Site Editor, Web IDE and Live Preview.

In Verification portion, Bitbucket is again lacking with missing important elements like code quality, code testing and coverage, load testing, web performance, usability testing, accessibility testing, merge trains, etc.

In packaging portion, Bitbucket comes in no comparison with Gitlab as it misses almost all the elements which includes Package Registry, Container Registry, Helm Chart Registry, Dependency Proxy, Jupiter Notebooks and Dependency Firewall.

In Securing, Bitbucket once again comes in no match with Gitlab as it misses all the elements.

Also in all the remaining portions, Bitbucket disappoints us as it lacks and misses all the components necessary for releasing, monitoring, configuring and defending a repo.

The Gitlab has advantage with single application which means that one interface, one user-model, one data model and it’s also easy to use. It has built in security which is extra satisfying alongside rapid innovative technology which translates to uniquely transparent product development process. In this case customers, partners and community can also contribute.
