According to a recent press release, “More than 1.5 million organizations have 25 million active repositories (an average of 17 per organization) on GitHub, the world’s largest community for developers to share, and build better software — with no good way to keep track of everything. Anaxi, a startup co-founded by serial entrepreneurs and veterans of Apple and Docker, today launched an app that gives engineers and managers visibility on their software development projects and processes. ‘It seems every other discipline within an enterprise can be tracked, scored and improved empirically except the software development process,”’ said Marc Verstaen, co-founder and CEO of Anaxi. ‘Now for the first time, engineers and managers can see where and how bottlenecks occur — what is working and what isn’t — leading to far more predictable development schedules and product launches’.”
The release goes on, “That is more important than ever before in today’s digital economy – with the Internet, e-commerce, Internet of Things and mobile phones – when technology is viewed as a competitive advantage with every company developing its own software. ‘It was a huge challenge supporting the rapid growth of Docker’s open-source community in terms of structuring and managing the GitHub project,’ said Sam Alba, until recently the vice president of engineering, Docker. ‘Anaxi resolves this issue by providing a holistic view to help get better control of the software development process.’ Anaxi’s team conducted a Net Promoter Score (NPS) survey of 129 companies, assessing their satisfaction about the way priorities are handled in the engineering organization, and the results revealed very poor performance with scores of -25 for all companies, and -38 for enterprises. The main complaint was visibility.”
