Raleigh startup Allstacks offers free live dashboard and benchmarking software development

RALEIGH- Allstacks will provide a live dashboard with industry benchmark data on its website at no charge.

The startup called it “industry first,” in a statement.

Here’s how it works: Anyone from any company can access Allstacks websitethen access real-time data.

The end goal, Allstacks said, is for the company to meet “internal continuous improvement goals by benchmarking the progress of its own software teams.”

Allstacks noted in a statement that with transparent data, software development can be reduced.

“This benchmark data is the first release of a larger strategy to put the engineering team in a better position to take a strategic seat in the boardroom and help drive predictable customer value and results. trading in a manner similar to the rest of the business,” Allstacks’ statement noted.

“We founded Allstacks to bring engineering a voice in the boardroom by building organizational trust through transparency and predictability. With a large population data set, we can confidently provide access to these top five key software development benchmarks,” said Hersh Tapadia, CEO of Allstacks, in a statement. “Tech companies have long demanded some kind of description of what “good” looks like in terms of software development progress. The wonderful thing about presenting live data is that our references reflect the state of the world in which we live. Few people could have predicted the impact of a global pandemic 18 months ago, and static benchmarks would struggle to give you fair comparisons. With live data, our benchmarks react to our experienced externalities.

The dashboard extracts and displays anonymized data, from the Allstacks customer population. The dashboard displays five benchmarks that the company says will help any company’s management “understand what progress looks like when it comes to the often misunderstood job of software engineering.”

These are, according to Allstacks’ statement:

  • How many days a week do benchmark teams write code?
  • What percentage of issues are planned versus unplanned for baseline teams?
  • What are the cycle times per issue type for reference teams?
  • What types of code do benchmark companies produce?
  • What is the average size of commitments for reference customers?
