Today, we’re announcing the general availability of Team Dynamics in IBM DevOps Insights.

Complex systems require developers to work together and problem-solve closely. To achieve this goal, developers must be able to easily read, understand, edit, or rewrite each others’ code.

Today, we’re announcing the general availability of Team Dynamics in DevOps Insights. Team Dynamics provides qualitative answers to software delivery team leaders about how their teams are performing. If you’re a lead developer, you probably have a good idea about who are your strongest coders and who’s great at debugging. You may even have a feeling about who’d be a potentially strong mentor for those new to your team. You don’t have to rely on intuition, however, because there are already lots of key social cues buried in your code repository.

Team Dynamics employs social coding analysis to identify the level of interaction between team members so that the team can fix unproductive practices. You will see how your team interacts based on real data, not guesswork.

IBM DevOps Insights

Earlier this year, we announced the general availability of IBM DevOps Insights, allowing software delivery teams to aggregate data from a variety of testing and code scanning tools to provide a comprehensive dashboard view of the risk profile of projects. Now, in addition to providing a single place for teams to access data about their projects,  IBM DevOps Insights Team Dynamics can help answer questions like:

  • Are team members comfortable changing each others’ code?

  • Are development responsibilities distributed equitably?

  • Who would be a good candidate mentor? Who could benefit from mentoring?

  • Are there signs that the project is at risk of being abandoned in the future?

With the help of the Social Coding graph in IBM Cloud DevOps Insights Team Dynamics, it’s easy to assess the dynamics of your software engineering team.
