With code management now in the cloud, it has become possible to track your engineering team output. Many of the engineering leaders started moving from gut-feeling engineering management to data-driven engineering management. Git Analytics tools provide data-driven engineering leaders with answers to questions like ‘How can you tell which developer had the greatest impact last month? Was this sprint better than the previous? How can you tell? How many developers made progress in the past week? How do you know?’

Git Analytics tools, such as Waydev and LinearB, are an add-on to the current Agile methodology. These tools provide an overview regarding your engineers’ output and quantify it into real-time, actionable metrics that help you to spot issues timely, increase velocity, and measure development success directly from your git repositories.

If you are looking for a LinearB alternative that provides you with code-level metrics and code collaboration metrics, or want to switch to another Git Analytics tool for your company, you are in the right spot.
