GitLab and Google Cloud Partnership


GitLab and Google Cloud have announced an extension of its strategic partnership.

GitLab plans to improve its DevSecOps workflow efficiency by 10x, by applying AI-assisted workflows to all users involved in delivering software value.

This first experimental feature leveraging Google Cloud’s generative AI models is called Explain this Vulnerability.

Explain this Vulnerability joins GitLab’s experimental-level features such as Explain this CodeSummarize Issue Comments, and Summarize Merge Request Changes, and its existing AI-enabled features, Code Suggestions, and Suggested Reviewers, which are focused on driving developer productivity beyond code development, and improving workflow automation for all users throughout the software development lifecycle.

GitLab’ says it 2023 DevSecOps Report: Security Without Sacrifices found that developers are increasingly using AI for testing and security – with 62% of developers using AI/ML to check code, up from 51% in 2022. Additionally, 36% of developers use AI/ML for code review, up from 31% the previous year. GitLab is focused on creating privacy-first solutions that enable enterprises and other highly regulated organisations to adopt AI/ML throughout the software development lifecycle.

“Organisations today are required to deliver software faster than ever before to remain competitive while requiring a stronger security posture in order to maintain customer, investor, and stakeholder trust,” said June Yang, VP of Cloud AI and Industry Solutions at Google Cloud. “Together with GitLab, we’ll be able to deliver generative AI functionality that empowers our joint customers to increase delivery velocity without sacrificing security.”

“GitLab’s vision for generative AI is grounded in privacy, security, and transparency. Our partnership with Google Cloud enables GitLab to offer private and secure AI-powered features, while maintaining customer data in our cloud infrastructure,” said David DeSanto, Chief Product Officer at GitLab. “This allows us to harness the power of Google Cloud, while continuing GitLab’s privacy-first approach to customer data. We look forward to our continued collaboration to deliver enterprise-grade AI-assisted functionalities to joint customers.”
