Keep developers productive as a distributed team

GitHub is part of Microsoft’s suite of tools for developers. It is designed and optimised for distributed teams, enabling developers to code, collaborate and deliver software remotely.

GitHub provides the distributed version control and source code management (SCM) functionality of Git with additional features. These include access to control and collaboration tools such as bug tracking, feature requests, task management and wikis for your IT projects. GitHub is the part of the DevOps toolset.



GitHub secures the supply chain, identifying and fixing code vulnerabilities. It also creates and enforces security and compliance policies as code.


As part of your dev toolchain, GitHub provides access to a vast community-based knowledge resource. GitHub will also help your organisation to attract the best talent at a time when the industry faces skill shortages.

Workflow Automation

You can accelerate delivery and continuous improvement by automating every step of the CI/CD pipeline. GitHub provides native support for this. Policies set within the workflow help to achieve consistency and traceability.

GitHub Actions does what it says on the tin; it allows you to create and reuse actions within your deployment pipelines for testing, releasing and deploying software.


The platform is designed for collaboration. This will help build and transform the culture of the IT team.

GitHub Teams and Enterprise editions

Both Team and Enterprise editions allow you to code, collaborate and ship from anywhere. The Team edition has less functionality and is intended for lower usage levels of GitHub Actions and package storage for private repos. In both cases, these limits are removed for public repos. 

GitHub Enterprise allows you to practice well tested and familiar open source methodologies behind your company firewall. It is intended for organisations that want to host their repos on-premises or in the cloud for greater control and self-management. Your internal IT projects will be ‘ring fenced’ in a secure environment. Only developers with appropriate permissions will be able to contribute.
