With new team insights, industry benchmarks, and more

Our mission at Code Climate is to help engineering organizations improve their processes, teams and code. We see a future where everyone from individual developers up to the CTO has access to a full picture of their engineering work in the form of clear, timely and actionable quantitative data.

In February, we opened our Velocity public beta. Over the past five months, we’ve spoken with hundreds of engineering leaders, processed a nearly-overwhelming amount of product feedback, and added dozens of top-requested features.

We’ve been floored by the excitement from engineering leaders:

“If you haven’t tried @codeclimate’s new Velocity product, and you’re interested in non-vanity measurements of productivity, and a baseline from which to measure process improvements, try it now. It’s very exciting.” – Avi Flombaum, Dean and Chief Product Officer, Flatiron School

“Velocity is quickly becoming one of my favorite tools for engineering management.” – Tomas Becklin, VP of Engineering, DroneBase

Today, Velocity is launching out of beta, and we’re ready to help your engineering organization turn on the lights.

Everyone who books a demo before Thursday, July 26th will receive our introductory launch pricing of 20% off for life. This is a one-time offer that we won’t be repeating anytime soon.

Most engineering decisions are anecdote-driven

Today, engineering organizations are often forced to make decisions based solely on anecdotes, gut feel and incomplete information. We understand that qualitative information is highly valuable – there’s no substitute for experience and intuition. However, the lack of quantitative data within engineering processes is a missed opportunity, especially given how data has transformed DevOps.

Historically, engineering organizations looking to incorporate data into their processes have faced two problems.

First, unless they’re working within a behemoth like Google, there simply aren’t enough developer resources to spare to invest in such efforts. This is the problem of “The Cobbler’s children having no shoes,” as analytics has transformed so many departments like sales, marketing, and finance.

Second, even if metrics were available, they would be hard to interpret. After all, if someone told you that your team averages 1.9 review cycles per pull request, is that the best as you could reasonably aim for or an opportunity for improvement?

Get data-driven with Velocity

Velocity helps you unlock the full potential of your engineering organization with data-driven insights to manage risks, eliminate bottlenecks, and drive continuous improvement.

It’s built on one simple notion: The happiest developers work on the most productive teams, and vice versa. Applying these practices, which we call Data-Driven Engineering, puts you in the position to achieve both.

Velocity gives you:

  • Custom dashboards and trends – engineering metrics with full historical trends
  • Team insights – actionable data to level up your engineering teams
  • Industry benchmarks – high impact opportunities for improvement by comparing your metrics against other engineering teams
  • Real-time risk alerts – identify and resolve risks before they become problems.

As a software company ourselves, we’re committed to improving the process of engineering, for everyone involved: developers, product managers, executives, and more. Velocity is a core part of our foundation to pursue this goal. If you’re excited about this prospect as well, check out Velocity today:

It takes 10 minutes to set up by connecting to your GitHub (or GitHub Enterprise) account, and soon you’ll have dozens of reports (with full historical data) to easily identify risks and opportunities.

Onward, to a data-driven future!
