Increases my ability to make confident performance decisions. A must have to data driven teams.
Kommentare: Data. Period. Data that I can use to operate my teams.
Vorteile: GitPrime increases my ability to make confident decisions about performance, and it allows me to do so much more quickly. I no longer have to rely on larger more abstract mechanisms or my gut only, now I can validate or invalidate it with data. The ability to drive after goals using team based data and/or individual based data allows me to customize how I want to use it across my teams. I also love how it easily and readily gives me coaching opportunities to take to a 1:1 with a team member.
Nachteile: It's impossible to include all business context into the algorithms GitPrime uses and I'd love a way to have a "journal" of sorts both for individuals and teams that allow documentation of that context over time. Additionally, goals coupled with notifications and updates on goals would be a great improvement.

Great Developer Insights
Kommentare: I'm trying to get better insight into what my developers are doing on a daily basis in order to make changes to reduce waste.
Vorteile: I like their overall approach to quantifying developer productivity. They measure activity, how many commits per day, what areas those commits are in and how long it takes for PRs to be reviewed. This gives granular visibility into each developer and the team as a whole.
Nachteile: Pricing needed to be addressed. Their pricing out of the gate is from 1 to 25 developers at a fixed price. I have fewer than 25 developers so this put their solution out of reach compared to a competitor that prices per developer. I ended up evaluating both products. GitPrime won on feature and functionality but not on price. The other product was good but incomplete (I wanted Jira integration) but the price was about a third of the cost of GitPrime. At the end of the eval I negotiated on price to something my budget would allow.

New Relic for An Engineering Team
Kommentare: Data and metrics on engineering team performance that aid in efforts to ramp up, develop, and retain engineering talent.
Vorteile: GitPrime peels back the curtain and exposes a wealth of metrics around the productivity and behavior of your engineering team. This allows everything from getting a great 10,000 ft view to diving into a specific team member. We've effectively used the tool to evaluate the impact (or lack of impact) of process/cultural changes, check in on team member performance and evaluate how new team members onboard and ramp up.
Nachteile: The metrics and charts only provide part of the picture. The software is best used in conjunction with your own intuition. For example, there may be non-alarming explanations for decreases in productivity (e.g. increase of PTO in the summer). Also I wish some of the charts had the ability to graph longer time periods.

Hard to drive adoption to engineering teams
Vorteile: GitPrime offers helpful visualizations that add transparency to the development process.
Nachteile: GitPrime's designed for management, so it's hard to convince actual developers to use it.

Fantastic tool for understanding you developer team's work
Vorteile: At my previous startup we were early users of GitPrime and it's fantastic to watch this product evolve. Although we were only a small team of 2-3, we got a lot of value from GitPrime's stats and analysis. It really helped us to see where we were spending our time and assess the effects some of our decisions had on our code base. We found it to be great for management and for personal development and analysis of our work patterns. The team at GitPrime were always super responsive to any feedback we had and even sought to understand how some of the product colours looked to me being colour blind..
Nachteile: I would like to use the product in some smaller projects as the stats are quite interesting and useful to assess how I'm working as a developer, but unfortunately the pricing isn't catered to this at the moment - hopefully soon!

Great tool for highlighting best engineering practices and setting goals on getting there.
Kommentare: Although expensive for small groups, fact-based conversations that result in better engineering is worth a lot.
Vorteile: It is all about focus. Choosing just 3 metrics to track (there's hundreds) fosters conversations focused on fixing work processes and doing the right things. It is hard to argue with facts. After a few cycles, select 3 new metrics. Take gitprime up on data walkthroughs, really helps navigate through the metrics.
Nachteile: Finding and tailoring 3 metrics for the team to track is sometimes challenging. Hard to benchmark against outside projects (apples vs oranges). Gitprime is awesome listening to new ideas though, and letting you know what's on the roadmap.
