So we’re doing a tools comparison of enterprise on premise solutions for our Source control and I’m an obvious fan of gitab .Doing a feature comparison it seems to completely blow GitHub out of the water without even considering pricing and it “seems” to be a better option than bitbucket
My only issue which the CTO warned me over when we go to get our recommendation approved would be that JIRA ( already chosen) is an atlassian product , if we went with bitbucket also atlassian if there is an issue with integration because they updated something we can simply tell them “fix it”
The cost of 100 seat count base gitlab is 3900 vs 6000 for bitbucket. I know it’s unlikely but if say JIRA updated or gitlab updated and the integration broke we’ve no central point we were can say “you own this , fix it now” because the blame can be shifted too easily between organisations with the other one being at fault. In the mean while $2,100 of a price difference is nothing compared to the daily rates of a large development team. So if we did lose integration even for a day we’d take a massive “hit” in terms of money lost.
What argument would you guys make to counter this ?
