Extend your DevOps analysis to CircleCI and GitLab data

Every company is a software company and every company wants to get better at it. That’s the reason we built Software Development Optimization or SDO. SDO helps you track siloed data across the DevOps toolchain. It normalizes and correlates data, provides you with DORA’s 4 key metrics and gives you deep insights into the velocity and quality of delivery across services and teams.

SDO brings the following benefits, just to name a few:

  1. Optimize builds and deployments - In a single view, know which builds and deployments take the longest, which fail more frequently and which teams deploy more often.

  2. Balance resources - Track issues opened, closed and reopened in a given period. See the breakdown of issues by severity or priority to ensure engineering resources are properly assigned

  3. Identify bottlenecks - Get instant visibility into the rate and status of merge requests, as well as associated pipelines. Be able to act on stalled merge requests or failed pipelines that are slowing work velocity.

Integrate GitLab and CircleCI with SDO

We are happy to announce that now GitLab and CircleCI customers can include their tool’s data in SDO’s DevOps performance analytics. Previous to these integrations, you could only integrate your GitLab and CircleCI data by manually building the data normalization rules for those tools. With these new supported integrations, the data normalization process is available out of the box. You can set up the supported integrations manually, or use the provided Terraform script.


Gitlab App

The Gitlab app showing deep analytics into how your teams are using Gitlab.

In addition to supporting GitLab and CircleCI in SDO, we also have released a standalone Gitlab app in your App Catalog. With the Gitlab app, you can gain insights into the health of builds, deployments, and more to quickly understand which teams and processes need help to increase velocity and quality. CircleCI customers can use the existing CircleCI application.

  • Builds and Deployments - Gain insight to understand the health of your builds and deployments across all teams, Know which builds and deployments take the longest, which fail most frequently, and which are deployed most and least often.

  • Issues - Track how many issues remain open, were closed in a given period, and how many were reopened. You can also identify which teammates get assigned the most issues and see the breakdown of issues by severity.

  • Merge Requests - Track the rate of merge requests being created vs merged vs declined. Monitor which merge requests never get reviewed

  • Pipelines - Track inefficient pipelines and pipeline stages. Monitor failed pipelines per project, team, or service.


We hope you’re as excited about these new integrations as we are. Give Software Development Optimization a try today and let us know what you think. If you’re a Jira Cloud user, also check out our SDO for Jira app, currently in beta.
