Anaxi Enhances Development Intelligence Tool, Helps Maintain Delivery Schedules with Added Support for Atlassian Jira

November 15, 2018 GMT

App provides greater reporting and analysis capabilities

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Anaxi, maker of software that helps engineering organizations gain control over the development process, announced today its iPhone app has added support for Atlassian Jira Server and Cloud versions to its current support for GitHub, giving engineers and managers increased visibility and intelligence on their software development projects and processes.

“By aggregating data from different tools, we’re able to provide metrics that provide a holistic view of the development process -- not piece parts,” said Marc Verstaen, co-founder and CEO of Anaxi. “Now, for the first time, there is a system of record for software engineering to better control the process and keep development schedules on track.”

Anaxi’s app now integrates data from both GitHub and Jira, the leaders in code versioning and issue tracking, respectively. The company intends to expand the number of tools it supports in the coming months.

The Anaxi software development intelligence app analytics include productivity reports on individual, as well as team performance, providing more transparency and delivering actionable insights.

Currently, Anaxi offers a free version of its app for the iPhone that is available on iTunes. The company is planning to make available in the coming weeks a beta version of its web app followed by an Android version. The company’s plans include a paid version for users who want premium reporting and communication features.

The newly added capabilities for the Anaxi free app on the iPhone include the following.

-- Issue and Pull Request Metrics Users can look into their pull request and issue data to better understand how their projects are evolving. Users can use any filtering and sorting options to surface the items of interest to them and save them as new reports for quick access. Also, Anaxi created an evaluation of complexity for pull requests, as an additional consideration for users in terms of assessing which pull requests to review first.

-- Productivity Metrics Analysis of project commits provides metrics on individual and team productivity, including a breakdown of the effort in terms of code added and removed, refactoring, code churn, and more on a weekly basis.

-- Project Management From their iPhone, users can edit their issues and pull requests. All edits are synchronized back to their GitHub and Jira projects.

-- Data Confidentiality To protect the need for confidentiality and access to users’ GitHub and Jira accounts, the Anaxi app is designed to connect directly to the users’ GitHub repositories and/or Jira projects. Then, the app builds the reports using the data, which remains secure and inaccessible, even from Anaxi itself.
