If you want a large team of enterprise developers to collaborate effectively, you need to find a suitable place to host your code. Choosing a repository hosting service might not seem like a big deal. But the repo host you choose can have serious consequences for your developers’ productivity and ability to build great products.

Let’s compare these two services and see where your enterprise should host its code.
