Overview

Software Engineering Insights (SEI) helps you to increase developer productivity and improve security through data-led insights and workflow automation. SEI connects various DevOps tools to provide a single view of the software factory, enabling users to discover bottlenecks, assess team productivity, and enhance the overall developer experience.

Reasons to use SEI

Software Engineering Insights provide the following opportunities to software delivery teams:

Support for industry proven metrics to monitor developer productivity

SEI provides industry proven metrics to track and improve developer productivity. The Trellis Framework on SEI analyzes over 20 factors gathered from various SDLC tools to generate a comprehensive report, providing valuable insights into optimizing developer performance. This helps organizations to pinpoint areas where productivity can be boosted, enabling them to implement targeted strategies and maximize their development capabilities.

Support for DORA and other frameworks for actionable insights

SEI enables users to use DORA and other frameworks to find actionable insights into potential bottlenecks. Users can analyze data across multiple pivot points to identify systemic and tactical issues. Users can add various available widgets from the library to represent and visualize the data in different formats.

Scorecards and Insights for a centralized visibility

SEI helps teams execute more efficiently and follow established processes better by identifying factors that affect their ability to deliver work as planned. It does this by displaying key metrics and KPIs on scorecards and insights, making it easier for teams to spot issues that might cause delays or disrupt their workflow. It encourages collaboration between product managers and engineers, ensuring that everyone follows best practices and avoids scope creep.

Optimize resource allocation and prevent wasteful engineering work

SEI helps users manage engineering resources effectively by providing visibility into resource allocation. It gives users a detailed breakdown of how time and resources are being used across different projects and initiatives, allowing them to ensure that resources are being used in line with business objectives. By identifying any misalignment or inefficiencies, users can take corrective action to optimize resource usage and eliminate wasteful/unplanned engineering work.

Drive engineering improvements in a well structured way

SEI helps drive improvements and excellence in a structured manner. It helps leaders create a plan for improvement using clear goals and agreed-upon steps, which supports a data-driven approach to decision-making within the team. This enables teams to achieve their goals in a methodical and efficient manner.
SEI's architecture is designed to integrate seamlessly with common CI/CD tools (e.g., Jenkins, CircleCI, GitLab, Azure) and currently provides 40+ popular third-party integrations (e.g., Azure, Jira, GitHub). This allows enterprise companies with heterogeneous environments to fetch data from various DevOps tools and gain centralized visibility into their SDLC process.
