As a trusted advisor to our clients, CDW prides ourselves on delivering impactful solutions. Our strategic partnership with GitLab allows us to deliver industry-leading DevSecOps solutions to our vast array of customers. Together, our shared mission of growing and nurturing the partner ecosystem and delivering impactful products to the DevSecOps space allows us to accelerate our customers’ digital transformation initiatives.
GitLab is known for industry-leading Source Code Management (SCM) and Continuous Integration (CI). Developers want to use GitLab because the DevSecOps platform makes it easy to include security at the onset projects through to delivery. Focus on apps, not tool maintenance, while improving collaboration and transparency for one predictable cost.
Using the GitLab DevSecOps platform with security built provides features like:
Automated Software Delivery helps organizations eliminate and automate manual, repetitive tasks from the software development life cycle (SDLC) to improve the overall velocity of the software factory and increase collaboration across dev and ops, including both application and infrastructure automation.
When organizations need to enable scale and flexibility due to the adoption of cloud native (Kubernetes), multi-cloud (deploy to GCP, AWS, Azure) or hybrid-cloud (deploy to multi-cloud + private clouds/data center), then they need to automate software delivery. In addition, when organizations need to adopt full DevSecOps, GitLab Premium is the stepping stone. Or, to get security, compliance, and portfolio management, consider trying GitLab Ultimate.
