Improvement Engine (LinearB) vs. Developer Tracking (Sleuth)

Rigid, dev-focused reports won’t help with project forecasting, accelerating timelines, or business alignment. Leaders who want to drive operational excellence and business outcomes choose LinearB for its:
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% in first 120 days
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

Dev-Only Metrics Are a Blurred Picture of Engineering Health

DORA metrics and git insights are great, but they’re not the only things leaders need to understand the health and business impact of their engineering organization. To drive active improvement, impact metrics, automation, and business alignment are required–Sleuth doesn’t provide all of these capabilities. LinearB does. With LinearB, you get:
Foundational metrics like DORA for free (yeah…free!)
Industry standard benchmarking for goal and OKR setting
Data and KPIs used for predictable project forecasting
Delivery pipeline automation that reduces cycle time by 44%
Chart of deployment frequency

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