Buyer’s Checklist: How to Choose an Engineering Management Platform


Download the Buyer’s Checklist here.

An engineering management platform, or EMP, is a comprehensive tool that offers data-driven insight into your engineering team. The platform allows engineering leaders to demonstrate the impact of their investments, advocate for more resources, understand engineering team health, and measure team progress. 

With this deep level of visibility, companies can enhance their software engineering practices and gain a competitive edge in the marketplace. Features across different EMPs can vary, and it can be challenging to evaluate which platform works best for your organization. We’ve put together a checklist that can help you make your choice, with selection criteria categorized by:  

  • Process and team health
  • Aligning engineering initiatives to business value 
  • Consistent, high-quality delivery 
  • Integrations into your existing systems
  • Scalability and customization
  • Security 

To give you a better understanding of what to look for in an EMP, download a free copy of our Buyer’s Checklist, which breaks down features by level of importance, from nice to have, to should have, to essential.
