We've long struggled to get a clear picture of what's going on in our engineering team and what obstacles stand in our way. I feel that Acumen will be a key part of finally getting us on track to achieve it.
Acumen helps us to identify error-prone components in our product, and continuously surfaces opportunities to improve our processes & productivity.
The ability to unify data from multiple systems and quality of insights make Acumen an indispensable tool to any engineering leader.
The Acumen platform has streamlined and improved the way we operate as an engineering org. With Acumen, we get more than just another data source – we get a continuous flow of highly relevant insights that help us avoid risks and continuously improve execution.
In the days of COVID lockdowns, Acumen helps us stay synced without any management overhead. That’s why I love starting my day with Acumen's daily update.
Anticipating risks matters more than ever when managing a remote team. Acumen helps me stay one step ahead.
Forget about salespeople (we don't have any), long time-consuming pilots, and over-committing to large budgets. Your engineering data will be analyzed within a day, so prepare to make the most of it within a week-long pilot
We understand the impact of incorporating data into the leadership decision-making process. So we save you hours of analyzing charts and spreadsheets by providing you with processed and actionable tips based on your engineering activity and KPIs.
Connect your project management tools and source control code. We handle the tedious data cleanup and data analysis for you and present all the information and insights you need to identify opportunities for improvement within your workforce and processes.
Keep track of your engineering performance against industry-leading benchmarks and DORA metrics. Improve your team's efficiency and productivity by monitoring your team’s performance, identifying bottlenecks, and blindspots, and getting them out of your way.
Optimize your engineering structure to get the full potential of your talent by easily identifying leading or lagging teams. Use your data to get visibility of your groups and squads' activity in areas such as PR efficiency, collaboration indicators, velocity, work distribution, and more.
A good engineering team relies on its contributors, make them shine! Take better human factor decisions by using activity tips about your top innovators, senior staff, engineering burnout, remote work efficiency, resource allocation, and more. Ensure they have the right plans to improve their personal and team performance.
Software companies spend billions on their talent, and need to deal with structural changes and make hard human factor decisions.
Dr Nicole Forsgren, one of the 3 contributors of the book Accelerate,* presented the SPACE framework, a guide for engineering leaders to look at their team productivity in a holistic way, considering 5 dimensions. The following is my take on SPACE in challenging times when business goals are aggressive and resources are limited.
Track the performance of your engineering team and drive business success with key performance indicators (KPIs). Explore the top five KPIs that engineering team leaders need to monitor, including utilization rate, cycle time, bug fixes, code quality, and innovation. Optimize these metrics to increase productivity and ensure that your team is operating at its best.
