Improvement Engine (LinearB) vs. Static Metrics (Code Climate)

Visibility is crucial to building an elite engineering organization, but without action it’s ultimately meaningless. Engineering leaders choose LinearB because its unique approach emphasizes “doing something” about improvement opportunities using:
DORA metrics: LinearB starts there, but goes much deeper into leading indicators
Resource Allocation: Quantify engineering impact and alignment to business priorities
Workflow Automation: Reduce cycle time by an average 44%
Engineering Benchmarks: Understand metrics better by seeing how you stack up to the industry
R&D Leaders trust LinearB to improve the ROI of their investments

Top 5 Reasons People Choose LinearB Over Code Climate


Our Improvement Formula:

Benchmark > Automate > Improve with LinearB

All Engineering Improvement Tools Are Not Created Equal

Alerts about long PR reviews won’t markedly reduce cycle time, automated PR routing will. And dashboards that only show devs assigned to projects won’t tell you how well you’re aligned to business priorities. With LinearB you can:
See metrics that matter most to you with customizable dashboards and standards like DORA
Automate improvement with tools devs love–like one-click ticket creation and code approvals
Show engineering ROI with Resource Allocation views that illustrate FTE effort and cost per project, epic, initiative, label, or custom field
Charts of Allocation by Issue Type and Time

We correlate data across your tools to identify bottlenecks and automate developer workflow optimization.

“It’s always been difficult to understand where work is stuck across JIRA and GitLab. LinearB shows us the big picture and democratizes the facts so it’s actually actionable.”
