VeriPrism DevOps Integration

There is no question that the software development tool chain has expanded beyond the simple “what editor do we use” questions that used to be the rage. DevOps is now more than 10 years old and is putting new pressure on the processes. As companies accelerate their digital transformations, a new generation of analytics, AI, and machine learning will continue to disrupt.

The need to have integrated, intelligent analytics is driving success with the business. VeriPrism is designed around the acknowledgement that true success with analytics is rarely from a single data-source. The tool chain is just too robust and too fluid to make disconnected decisions. To really demonstrate the speed and business value that stakeholders expect, next generation tools need to integrate data to provide a holistic view of an ever-expanding and ever more complex IT environment.

One of the features in VeriPrism that we are most excited about is the “Correlate” process.  Correlate takes data from profilers, Agile tools, cost and time systems, automated testers, even some of our competitors and integrates that data with our Application DNA to provide insights tied directly to the code. Having all of your important application data in one place allows architects, coders, and management to make decisions based on a total picture of environment quality, performance, and results.

By receiving coherent data in a simple and timely manner, the right decisions can be made to cost-effectively deliver the continuous improvement demanded in today’s business environment.

VeriPrism integrates data to sharpen focus on the big questions:

How much development work was completed?

VeriPrism Intelligent Sizing Units (ISUs) replace outdated Function Point methodologies providing a deterministic means to explain activity at the right level for comprehension.  For companies using Story Points in the development process, ISUs provide a rational bridge from “what are we going to do” to “what was done.” ISUs also provide the means whereby performance measures in other tools can be assessed against the size and complexity of the measured code.

How much of my application has actually been tested?

VeriPrism has connectors available for performance testing tools such as Mercury Interactive.  When VeriPrism data is merged with testing data it is possible to demonstrate exactly how much of the application has been exercised. This ability to match test results with code maps avoids multiple tests on the “golden path” making teams more productive and effective.

Which modules perform badly?  Why?

Tools like dynatrace can show you where you have performance issues. Integrating that data with VeriPrism Application DNA data delivers the why.  Having targeted information with visualization of code interaction allows targeted remediation  without the expense of “let’s see if this is better” break/fix cycles.

Are the same modules responsible for all the issues?

Tracking change release to release, sprint to sprint gives insight into what is changing and by how much. ISUs help make sure that the data connects to reality and provide context to the data flowing from other tools.

What is “this” data telling me and how does it relate to “that” data?

When Application DNA reveals the structure of your code, and that is integrated with one or more testing or performance tool outputs, there is no more “this” or “that” and the relationships are rendered explicit.  The VeriPrism Correlate process makes it possible to visualize and explore these critical data points for more effective IT performance and enhanced business value.
