Software Development Analytics

With lean development models, sprints, and globally dispersed teams, developers and programmers need more than ever to understand customer needs and find bugs as early in the development cycle as possible.

Track personnel resources, development roadmaps, and bug status in the office or on-the-go. Download the free trial, connect your own data, and see for yourself why the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) awarded Tableau the CODiE Award for "Best Software Development".

Software developers use Tableau to:

  • Understand where teams are spending time and balance workloads
  • Quickly pinpoint problems that affect release dates or quality assurance
  • Aggregate and analyze feedback from user testing
  • Communicate status to stakeholders in real-time interactive dashboards
  • Embed native HTML dashboards in your corporate Intranet or SharePoint
Manage Software Projects
Software development project management to help you track schedules, ship dates, bugs, and features

Software development project management is a difficult balancing act between people, projects and costs. It doesn't help when you are responsible for multiple software teams spread across the globe, who each have their own development schedules, ship dates, bugs, and features.

You need a real-time, interactive view where you can see the big picture and drill down anytime for details. And your executives and line-of-business stakeholders need updates without a lot of manual work by you and your team to make reports or PowerPoint slides.

In this sample dashboard, drill down for an individual region and filter by stakeholder and project priority. Click the Costs & Duration tab to spot outliers by project cost and timeframe. And when you or a stakeholder prefers to see details in a table, show the Cross Tab.

See Software Performance
Benchmark performance across time, workloads, and machines

Track adherence to quality of service (QoS) targets. Spot performance trends and outliers rapidly versus wading through reams of application and server log data. Share as interactive web dashboards on your corporate Intranet or SharePoint, or export to PowerPoint.

This sample dashboard shows 236,000 elapsed time results measured in sub-seconds. See granular details in the tooltip for individual marks. Select time of day to compare results for peak business hours versus overnight. Click the tabs to see your test data from different perspectives.

Track Bugs and Workloads
Track bugs and manage developer workloads

Anyone can track bugs more easily with Tableau. You can take data from Atlassian, BMC Remedy, Bugzilla, FogBugz or other issue-tracking software and publish bug-tracking dashboards on your corporate portal, wiki or SharePoint.

In this sample dashboard, see active bugs and each developer’s workload color-coded by priority. Filter by system. Compare reported versus resolved bugs over time.

One of your stakeholders wants an update? Don't waste time creating custom reports. Instead, share the web dashboard or export images to PowerPoint.
