Why do companies choose Typo?

Dev teams hold great importance in the engineering organization. They are essential for building high-quality software products, fostering innovation, and driving the success of technology companies in today’s competitive market.

However, engineering leaders need to understand the bottlenecks holding them back. Since these blindspots can directly affect the projects. Hence, this is when software development analytics tools come to your rescue. And these analytics software stands better when they have various features and integrations, engineering leaders are usually looking out for.

Typo is an intelligent engineering platform that is used for gaining visibility, removing blockers, and maximizing developer effectiveness. Let’s know more about why engineering leaders prefer to choose Typo as their important tool:

You get customized DORA and other engineering metrics

Engineering metrics are the measurements of engineering outputs and processes. However, there isn’t a pre-defined set of metrics that the software development teams use to measure to ensure success. This depends on various factors including team size, the background of the team members, and so on.

Typo’s customized DORA (Deployment frequency, Change failure rate, Lead time, and Mean Time to Recover) key metrics and other engineering metrics can be configured in a single dashboard based on specific development processes. This helps benchmark the dev team’s performance and identifies real-time bottlenecks, sprint delays, and blocked PRs. With the user-friendly interface and tailored integrations, engineering leaders can get all the relevant data within minutes and drive continuous improvement.

DORA and other engineering metrics

Typo has an in-built automated code review feature

Code review is all about improving the code quality. It improves the software teams’ productivity and streamlines the development process. However, when done manually, the code review process can be time-consuming and takes a lot of effort.

Typo’s automated code review tool auto-analyses codebase and pull requests to find issues and auto-generates fixes before it merges to master. It understands the context of your code and quickly finds and fixes any issues accurately, making pull requests easy and stress-free. It standardizes your code, reducing the risk of a software security breach and boosting maintainability, while also providing insights into code coverage and code complexity for thorough analysis.

You can track the team’s progress by advanced sprint analysis tool

While a burndown chart helps visually monitor teams’ work progress, it is time-consuming and doesn’t provide insights about the specific types of issues or tasks. Hence, it is always advisable to complement it with sprint analysis tools to provide additional insights tailored to agile project management.

Typo has an effective sprint analysis feature that tracks and analyzes the team’s progress throughout a sprint. It uses data from Git and the issue management tool to provide insights into getting insights on how much work has been completed, how much work is still in progress, and how much time is left in the sprint. This helps in identifying potential problems in the early stages, identifying areas where teams can be more efficient, and meeting deadlines.

The metrics dashboard focuses on team-level improvement and not micromanaging individual developers

When engineering metrics focus on individual success rather than team performance, it creates a sense of surveillance rather than support. This leads to decreased motivation, productivity, and trust among development teams. Hence, there are better ways to use the engineering metrics.

Typo has a metrics dashboard that focuses on the team’s health and performance. It lets engineering leaders compare the team’s results with what healthy benchmarks across industries look like and drive impactful initiatives for your team. Since it considers only the team’s goals, it lets team members work together and solve problems together. Hence, fosters a healthier and more productive work environment conducive to innovation and growth.

Typo takes into consideration the human side of engineering

Measuring developer experience not only focuses on quantitative metrics but also requires qualitative feedback as well. By prioritizing the human side of team members and developer productivity, engineering managers can create a more inclusive and supportive environment for them.

Typo helps in getting a 360 view of the developer experience as it captures qualitative insights and provides an in-depth view of the real issues that need attention. With signals from work patterns and continuous AI-driven pulse check-ins on the experience of developers in the team, Typo helps with early indicators of their well-being and actionable insights on the areas that need your attention. It also tracks the work habits of developers across multiple activities, such as Commits, PRs, Reviews, Comments, Tasks, and Merges, over a certain period. If these patterns consistently exceed the average of other developers or violate predefined benchmarks, the system identifies them as being in the Burnout zone or at risk of burnout.

You can integrate as many tools with the dev stack

The more the tools can be integrated with software, the better it is for the software developers. It streamlines the development process, enforces standardization and consistency, and provides access to valuable resources and functionalities.

Typo lets you see the complete picture of your engineering health by seamlessly connecting to your tech tool stack. This includes:

  • GIT versioning tools that use the Git version control system
  • Issue tracker tools for managing tasks, bug tracking, and other project-related issues
  • CI/CD tools to automate and streamline the software development process
  • Communication tools to facilitate the exchange of ideas and information
  • Incident management tools to resolve unexpected events or failures

Conclusion

Typo is a software delivery tool that can help ship reliable software faster. You can find real-time bottlenecks in your SDLC, automate code reviews, and measure developer experience – all in a single platform.
