Software Introduces Innovative Data Platform to Improve DevOps Performance
December 09, 2021

Software, a tech start-up that helps engineering organizations improve their software delivery through its DevOps metrics platform, raised $15M in Series A funding from Next47 and 8VC.

This funding will allow Software to grow its robust DevOps platform and provide essential insights to engineering teams to enable faster and more efficient software development.

"Over the last decade we've witnessed a growing tech divide between the highest and lowest performing software development organizations," said Software co-founder Brett Stevens. "Software sheds light on organizations' DevOps performance. Our platform is trusted by over 250,000 developers worldwide."

Software's DevOps metrics platform helps organizations improve visibility into their DevOps performance and see how they compare to other companies in the market. Companies can quickly connect their DevOps tools and see performance metrics, including delivery lead time and release frequency, in just a few minutes—with no need for setup or services.

"Companies invest billions of dollars annually in DevOps initiatives without being able to effectively track or measure how they're actually doing," said Mason McLead, CTO of Software. "They have no way to know if they're on the path to becoming a great development organization, or if they're in danger of falling behind their competitors."

Software plans to release a powerful product upgrade that will provide even more data and benchmarks for measuring and improving DevOps performance before the end of 2021.
