Introducing DevOptics

DevOptics™ is your DevOps radar. It allows organizations to measure, analyze, and manage DevOps. DevOptics provides a comprehensive view of the status of your CD platform as well as software value streams, correlated from data collected across software delivery pipelines. It acts as a single source of truth to analyze and continually optimize the flow of value from idea to production.

  • Built in Value Streams capabilities make it easy to map then actively measure and manage your software delivery process and activities.
