Top 5 Reasons People Choose LinearB Over Haystack
You deserve more than just metrics
Providing the same basic metrics to everyone isn’t the way to increase efficiency or make a bigger impact on the business. Different roles have different needs and care about different things. And no matter what anyone says, metrics and reports alone don’t get results. Measurable, sustained improvement comes from:
Industry standard benchmarking
Programmable delivery pipeline automation
Executive level resource allocation and cost capitalization reporting
LinearB provides those capabilities. Haystack doesn’t.
