How It Works

1. Data Extraction

METRX’s algorithms check the Git repository’s metadata and the tech stack (programming languages, libraries, and frameworks).

2. Data Evaluation and Analysis

METRX analyzes your code and all its’ history from the repository alongside project and ticket based data from your issue tracking system. A comparative analysis is completed against individuals, teams and projects to understand your engineers’ activities as they stand today.

3. Review

The METRX team reviews all data with you for a thorough understanding of your team and further refines any reporting, instantly resulting in a customized view of your organization.

4. Resolve​

Once a review is complete, you’re in control of the following steps:

  • Resolve any bottlenecks by leveraging Gigster’s ten years of experience
  • Resolve any bottlenecks found using your internal resources
  • Continue to monitor your team’s progression every month

METRX reports

Every METRX report is tailored to showcase the specific information you need to understand about your organization.

Curious to learn more? Check these examples below:

Cost Per Product
(Executive Level Report)

What does it show:
The estimated cost of the development of products based on the developers code contribution and salary in the last year.

Why is it useful:
We can offer a highly accurate estimate of the engineering expenses for product development even without the use of time logging.

We can create the report on both commit/ticket/epic/project level.

" We got valuable feedback immediately how engineering dollars are spent between projects and who are the most expensive developers. We analysed those and understand how to avoid expensive mistakes. "

Feature Development Vs Maintenance Ratio
(Executive Level Report)

In an ideal scenario, bug fixing should account for less than 30% of the total workload.

Even without time tracking, we can assess the extent of engineering resources dedicated to maintenance, which offers a more precise measurement than merely tallying ticket numbers in JIRA.

" The biggest take away was developers could work only on the roadmap up to 50% of their capacity. We had to better distribute work between developers so they can focus more on important developments. "

Weekly Code Contribution
Per Team / Product / Org
(For Engineering Leaders)

- Gain insight into the extent to which teams contribute through the deployment of new code and code modifications.
- This aids in identifying teams facing obstacles in their code contribution efforts.

" Thanks to METRX we learned that one of our team had a declining trend in their productivity. Once we clearly saw it the team leader could jump in and started to remove obstacles. "

Weekly Code Contribution Per Developer
(For Engineering Leaders)

Understand team members’ contribution over time.

" Thanks to METRX we are able to measure how new developers are catching up. I helped us to optimize our onboarding and new hires started to be more productive sooner. "

Code Contribution By Product Per Week
(For Engineering Leaders)

Shows if the developers are working on the right products. Identifies how much efforts they put into each product. Helps to understand how development speed changes per project over time. Works without time-tracking.

" We realized most of our engineering output was allocated to experimental projects and the real revenue-generating project was understaffed. "

Cycle Time
(For Engineering Leaders)

Ideally you want your cycle time to be short.
It enables your team to reach fast, get a short feedback loop and iterate fast.
Longer cycle time means there are bottlenecks in the SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle).

" Following the right metrix the team is now motivated to work on smaller tickets. That helped us to deliver faster smaller chunks of improvements and reduce the number of big risky deployments. "

Issue Status Flow Chart
(For Engineering Leaders)

Every SDLC has an ideal flow from the start status to the desired end status. However in some cases the issue has to go back into a previous status because of quality issues (failed code review, failed QA, etc.).
This reports shows how many times the tickets are failing or passing. This chart can be generated per project, developer for a selected time interval.

" First, we were happy our code review acceptance rate is 96%. After that it turned out our code review process has serious flaws. Even bad codes passed passed too many times. "

Your reports are priorized by your METRX Dashboard

Your METRX dashboard provides you with a user-friendly interface that seamlessly connects to your data sources. Your data analysis, visualizations, and insights are only one step away. Rest assured, your data’s security is a top priority.

METRX assesses the health scores of your team by considering:

Lead Time: The duration from issue creation to production.
Deployment Frequency: How often deployments occur.
Time to Restore: The period required to address critical issues.
Change Fail Rate: The percentage of deployments resulting in failure.
