Companies have a lot of valuable data waiting to be discovered. What companies usually measure is just the tip of the iceberg. Analytics is the way of discovering insights from that data. An area where analytics is often not used to its fullest potential is for understanding Software Development processes.Continue reading “Bitergia Analytics: 4 steps to implement Data Strategy”
A new version of GrimoireLab is out. This post shows the major improvements from the latest GrimoireLab toolkit releases.
GrimoireLab is a 100% open source project maintained mainly by Bitergia developers and part of CHAOSS Software projects, one of The Linux Foundation projects. GrimoireLab’s main goal is to provide a software development analytics toolkit to analyze software development projects.
In our previous post about Cauldron, we introduced Cauldron as a SaaS solution for project managers, analysts, and developers to analyze the community and processes of open source software development projects.
Years ago, we developed a software development communities and processes analytics PaaS PoC based in GrimoireLab technologies. We called it Cauldron, and recently we have started working on a big update, that includes many new features, including Open Distro for Elascticsearch! Let’s see what’s coming…

We have been working for GitLab for some time, analyzing activity, community and performance in several of their projects like GitLab CE and GitLab EE. And of the questions they have asked has been: how many merge requests do we have open each week?. This workload insight helps to manage the effort spent in code review.
One of the last features we’ve been working on for Bitergia Analytics and GrimoireLab is called Panels Collection: A set of dashboards, aggregated in a unified structure with clear documentation for easy insights analysis and reporting.
One of the main problems community managers face when they want to measure project’s health, is related with the life-cycle of it. If community managers are able to identify whether the project is either in growth, maturity or decline, that can be used when making further decisions regarding the project and its developer community
Software development analytics plays an important role in decision making for many data-driven firms. Being able to provide support for a wide range of different data sources to measure any project (so you can aggregate more than just one type of data) and manage different identities and affiliations among several data sources, is something we believe that can lead to a better understanding of the project as a whole.
SortingHat is an open source tool that simplifies the management of project member identities and their related information such as gender, country and organization enrollments. It is one of the key components of GrimoireLab, daily used in Bitergia to track and visualize project members information.
Bitergia keeps growing as a software development analytics firm and nowadays, we are helping a wide variety of clients (project & community managers, engineering & development teams, HR managers, business analysts, etc.). Obviously, they’re not looking for the same goals in their projects, neither for the same metrics. So, how can Bitergia Analytics dashboards be customized for their specific needs?
