Jellyfish now assists software engineering firms in evaluating industry standards ...

Jellyfish, a software engineering management software company, has launched its first comparative benchmarking tool, which allows engineering leads to know how well their performance is compared to other companies.

When engineering teams opt-in to share their anonymized data with the broad pool, Jellyfish Benchmarks, which is formerly known, is based on the company''s own internal data.

Aligning goals

Jellyfishs'' core purpose is to focus on the work of engineering engineers and their industry objectives. This is accomplished by analysing myriad engineering signals, from developer tools such as issue trackers and source code management platforms, as well as project management tools. It''s all about establishing what teams are working on, monitoring their progress and how individual teams and workers are performing.

By ushering in aggregated, pan-industry engineering information, this improves the scope of the mix, permettant companies to compare and contrast internal figures with those from their peers across sectors.

What sort of benchmarks do Jellyfish now serve up? Users have access to more than 50 metrics, including time-invested in growth; issues resolved; deployment frequency; pull requests merged; coding days; incident rate and mean time to repair (MTTR).

At the time of writing, around 80% of Jellyfish customers opt-in to sharing their anonymized data into the benchmarking datasets. Only those who will benefit from this new product will need to give it. It''s all you need to do is get a little.

Customers onboard will receive the opportunity to leverage industry benchmarks built on anonymized data from other Jellyfish customers, according to Kannan. In the rare instances in which customers opt-out of this opportunity, their dataset will not be added, but they will not be able to leverage benchmarking as a feature.


While software development teams may have access to more engineering information than ever before, it''s not always possible to learn from these data how well they are working on an ongoing basis, although they are still exceptionally underperforming compared to other organizations. This is the ultimate issue that Jellyfish Benchmarks wants to address.

LinearB, a Jellyfish competitor, has given a nine-year engineering benchmark, which is based on a static chart on its website rather than incorporating it directly into the platform allowing firms to compare themselves against industry standards on a percentile basis.

Jellyfish is specially designed for dozens of metrics, which opens up the tools'' appeal to a wide spectrum of use cases.

Different teams are attempting to optimize different metrics depending on their product, stage, business objectives, and so on, according to Kannan. That''s why we have included benchmarking for the highest quality metrics we see.
