Perforce vs Sourcegraph: What are the differences?

Developers describe Perforce as "Self-hosted Version Control Software". Visibility, access control, workflow and code management for Git environments. Flexibility of collaborating on the same codebase and code reviews using any combination of Perforce and Git workflows and tools without compromise. On the other hand, Sourcegraph is detailed as "Code search and code intelligence for you and your team". Sourcegraph is a code search engine that lets you search across hundreds of thousands of libraries and browse code in the same way you can do in a great IDE. Search for a function, see live examples of how it’s used by other repositories, and jump to the definition of other code around it—even if the definition is in a completely different repository.

Perforce and Sourcegraph are primarily classified as "Code Collaboration & Version Control" and "Code Search" tools respectively.

"Great for Enterprise level use" is the primary reason why developers consider Perforce over the competitors, whereas "Understand the connections between code components" was stated as the key factor in picking Sourcegraph.
