DevOps Insights: New Item Charging Metric

By Ming Gong

IBM Cloud DevOps Insights to change the way it charges for usage in December

Since its inception, IBM Cloud DevOps Insights has unified the application release test, build, and deploy experience into a single tool. So far, our users have tracked analytics across hundreds of applications within Insights, and as the Insights team continues to release additional features, our customers will also gain analytics on other parts of their DevOps pipeline.

Starting in December of 2018, IBM Cloud DevOps Insights will change the way it charges for usage. Instead of charging by Application, Insights will use the term Item. By charging for items within Insights, we will be able to scale our value across future feature sets.

How will this impact existing customers?

Items and Applications work on the same principle: by count. When the change is complete, we will charge for the total number of Items instead of Applications. Usage will not be affected by this. All items will be charged on a monthly recurring basis and they will not be prorated.

Billing will not be impacted.

We see this as a label change that will not impact existing Insights usage or the way service usage is billed.

Where will this change appear?

This metric change will only appear in our terms.
