GitPrime overview

What is GitPrime?

GitPrime is a productivity analytics solution for software development teams which analyzes data from Git-based code repositories, including GitHub, GitLab, and BitBucket, to measure team productivity, understand individual work patterns, identify areas for improvement, and more.

GitPrime highlights each engineer’s recent work patterns, giving users an at-a-glance view of individual working practices and contributions compared to team averages. Each engineer’s commit risk can also be viewed, and work focuses are also visualized on graphs alongside team averages, covering new work, legacy refactoring, helping others, and code churn, giving users insight into how much work goes into dealing with technical debt and how much is immediately overwritten. Feedback aimed at specific areas requiring improvement is presented to users to be passed on to engineers. A global view of daily progress enables users to track progress made by all engineers across all repositories in a single view.

GitPrime allows users to map any significant organizational events against team productivity, to show the impact of events such as team growth, requirements revisions, and process changes on the average number of commits per engineer, codebase impact, or other productivity metrics. Users can also view a leaderboard which ranks engineers using a score calculated across 5 metrics, including efficiency, impact, commits per day, and tt100 productive (the amount of time required to contribute 100 lines of code, after churn). GitPrime can also deliver daily or weekly digest emails, which include details of daily or weekly impact, work focus, repository focus, pull requests, contributors ranked by impact, and more.

Real Metrics for Real Work!

Used weekly for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

We were trying to find a tool to capture the work being completed, how it was getting done, and by whom. On one hand there was a strict efficiency element to it- praise the rockstars, root out the stinkers. But there was another aspect- what are the trends on a team and individual level? And how do we foster the appropriate development and assignments for those teams and individuals based on their output, their languages, their trends, etc. The value of GitPrime grows exponentially as we get more data from it.

Pros
We can finally understand what the dev teams are doing, not as a function of closed Jira tickets but as actual work actually completed. GitPrime measures the actual work completed, showing patterns, language analysis (like angular vs react), and visualizes what is going in a less abstract way- because story points can only be so accurate. Basically, we are learning who is deploying, who is working, how they're being so successful, and identifying the weak links. When you have a collaborative team full of selfless introverts, it can be very hard to identify who isn't contributing and even harder to identify who your rockstars are. GitPrime solves all of that, and visualizes the trends and the metrics.

Cons
Price. It can definitely be a little expensive especially when you consider the suite of tools already being used for dev teams (security management, work ticketing, internal wikis, etc.). It does require ongoing management to get the most out of it, it would be more convenient if there were notifications/alerts or something similar.

Data. Period. Data that I can use to operate my teams.

Pros
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.

Cons
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.

Pros
GitPrime offers helpful visualizations that add transparency to the development process.

Cons
GitPrime's designed for management, so it's hard to convince actual developers to use it.

Great Developer Insights

Review Source: Capterra

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.

Pros
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.

Cons
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

Data and metrics on engineering team performance that aid in efforts to ramp up, develop, and retain engineering talent.

Pros
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.

Cons
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.

Benefits

Recent work patterns for each engineer are presented in an at-a-glance view, with specific feedback on areas requiring improvement.

Organizational events, such as team growth, process changes, and late-stage requirements revisions can be mapped on to charts and graphs to visualize how these events affect team productivity.

A global view of daily progress allows users to track progress across all repositories, as work moves through the development pipeline.

Digest emails are sent out on a daily or weekly basis, keeping users informed of work focus, daily/weekly impact, pull requests, most notable commits, and more.
