GitLab in Switzerland

GitLab is no stranger to Switzerland and has a strong presence in the Swiss financial services industry. As an example, UBS and GitLab have just recently signed a multi-year contract for a strategic collaboration.

This complements UBS’s cloud journey, which is targeted at developing a market leading, dynamic development experience – with the ultimate goal to faster produce high quality solutions for clients, while increasing efficiency. As members of the Fintech Open Source Foundation (FINOS), UBS and GitLab address common industry challenges and drive innovation in the financial industry.

We as VSHN think that such initiatives strengthen the Swiss FSI and workplace Switzerland. VSHN also works with several partners in the financial services area, for example acrevis bank, CreditGate24, esurance or neon.
