Red Hat announced a multi-stage alliance to offer customers a greater choice of operating systems to run on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).
Harness announced the acquisition of Propelo.
Propelo's engineering excellence platform provides insights into software delivery and workflows across teams, processes and systems. Organizations rely on Propelo to increase their developer productivity, improve developer experience, software quality and security, and accelerate time to value.
Harness Software Engineering Insights integrates seamlessly with the Harness platform, works with common CI/CD tools (Jenkins, CircleCI, Gitlab, Azure, etc.) and provides 40+ popular third-party integrations (Azure, Jira, GitHub, etc.). Enterprise companies with heterogeneous environments are able to fetch data from disparate DevOps tools and receive centralized visibility into their SDLC process.
Harness Software Engineering Insights achieves this by looking at different facets of the SDLC process where bottlenecks are prevalent, such as:
- Alignment: Software Engineering Insights ensures engineering teams are aligned with the business initiatives, improving resource allocation and reducing wasted efforts.
- Planning: Software Engineering Insights maximizes the agile program output by increasing predictability, reducing scope creep and encouraging good process habits using an automated workflow engine.
- Execution: Software Engineering Insights benchmarks each team and organization using out-of-the-box north star metric frameworks, such as DORA and SPACE, and provides actionable insights into how to improve those metrics by removing bottlenecks.
"Talented software developers are in high demand and a business's bottom line relies on developers rapidly delivering innovation to end-users. Enterprises know developer productivity and happiness are business critical. A big part of improving the dev experience is having the right insights into the SDLC to know where developers are being held back. But companies need to measure before they can optimize. Until now measurability has been a tremendous challenge," said Jyoti Bansal, CEO and Co-founder at Harness. "Propelo provides engineering and DevOps leaders with actionable data to make decisions that remove engineering roadblocks and help teams respond more quickly to customer needs."
"This acquisition will help customers improve the productivity of their engineering teams and achieve business outcomes quickly. Now as part of the Harness platform, we will expand our reach and bring powerful solutions to even more customers. The combination of Harness with Propelo moves us forward on the common mission to empower developers to achieve business goals faster and more efficiently." said Nishant Doshi, CEO and founder at Propelo.
