Improvement Engine (LinearB) vs. Reports Collection (waydev)

Complicated reports full of passive metrics and basic alerting won’t deliver operational excellence or better business outcomes. Engineering teams looking to actively improve choose LinearB because it:
Highlights project delivery risk with leading indicator metrics
Quantifies engineering impact and alignment to business priorities
Reduces cycle time by an average 44% with workflow automation
Uses Engineering Benchmarks to show how your metrics stack up to the industry
R&D Leaders trust LinearB to improve the ROI of their investments

Top 5 Reasons People Choose LinearB Over waydev


Complex Reporting Won’t Help You Improve

The ability to “build complex reports” isn’t how you improve your engineering team’s efficiency or help them align to business priorities.  Those results are achieved with industry standard benchmarks, programmable delivery pipelines, and executive level resource allocation and cost capitalization reporting. LinearB provides those capabilities. waydev doesn’t. 

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.”
