Top 5 Reasons People Choose LinearB Over Uplevel


Metrics Are Simply a Commodity

Many vendors try to differentiate their offering based on their “unique” views. But “unique” doesn’t necessarily mean helpful. LinearB provides holistic visibility into industry standard metrics that matter most to leaders–like DORA and project health. LinearB then takes it a step further by showing teams how their metrics stack up against industry peers.  Uplevel and LinearB provide some overlapping metrics for engineering leaders – but that’s where the similarities end.

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.”
