Developers and engineering teams are under increasing pressure to release higher quality software faster. Continuous testing has proven to be central to these efforts as it helps eliminate bottlenecks and ensures that automated testing is a constant throughout the development process, not an exercise relegated to the "last mile." The value of automated testing is more evident than ever before, with nearly half the respondents reporting that management is fully committed to automated testing and with plans to increase spending, according to the recent Sauce Labs Testing Trends for 2018 report ...
Electric Cloud announced ElectricFlow 8.0 with DevOps Insight Analytics.
DevOps Insight provides teams with automated data collection and powerful reporting to connect DevOps toolchain metrics and performance back to the milestones and business value (features, user stories) being delivered in every release.
ElectricFlow Community Edition with DevOps Insight can be downloaded and used for FREE.
ElectricFlow DevOps Insight, built on ElasticSearch and LogStash, is delivered as a tightly integrated stand-alone Business Intelligence (BI) server, which isolates reporting requests from pipeline orchestration to eliminate the threat of performance impact.
By extending ElectricFlow’s existing catalog of off-the-shelf plug-ins, DevOps Insight is able to pull key metrics from any tools being orchestrated as part of the end-to-end delivery process — from user story tracking and build automation to test automation and operations. A software development kit (SDK) allows teams to easily extend the solution to capture custom metrics from new tools.
An out-of-the-box Release Command Center dashboard displays this toolchain information in a consolidated, easy-to-interpret view, enabling teams to instantly glean the quality, health and status of a release and its business value. In addition, a powerful drag-and-drop GUI allows users to easily create custom reports and dynamic dashboards to visualize information in a way that works for any audience.
“Many organizations we talk to report having 60 or more tools in their software delivery pipelines, which makes reporting cumbersome and ‘fast feedback’ difficult for them to achieve,” said Steve Brodie, CEO of Electric Cloud. “ElectricFlow 8.0 with DevOps Insight is the only product of its kind to give executives and technical users alike a timely, repeatable way to understand the status of their releases and the business value being delivered.”
