With the industry wide movement towards DevOps, the need for companies to be able to rapidly adjust, make strategic decisions or change the direction of their software development based on rapid feedback (Feedback Loops) and metrics/measurement. The problems many companies run into is that they are they have no feedback loop or metrics/measurement in place.
At ATF we suggest that our clients start by integrating SonarQube into their architecture in order to have what we like to call “super-radiator” of reporting. Companies who adopt SonarQube quickly find that it brings value to all of the stakeholders involved in software development. One of the advantages of using SonarQube is its ability to show only relevant information in the correct context and also shut off the noise to facilitate investigation and decision making.
DevOps brings the level of metrics and measurement to a completely different level through its extensive use of monitoring tooling, with some advanced companies even running tools such as Chaos Monkey to purposely try and break their production environments.
