What is Axify?
Axify is a platform to observe all the metrics that help improve development and delivery processes. Data is collected in real-time from tools already in use and aggregated in dashboards designed to inspire meaningful conversations to elevate teamwork and collaboration among developers.
The vendor states Axify was created in 2020 after a workload increase shed light on growing pains, notably the difficulty of having constant visibility on all projects, considering the large amount of data to be collected. Employee well-being was also a significant challenge to address. It was essential to maintain a great work environment where talented individuals felt empowered to unleash their potential and maintain a high level of motivation in each project.
So Axify aims to bring useful data and valuable feedback to software development teams and professionals who want to improve their delivery process:
- Scrum Masters
- Agile coaches
- Development teams
Problems Axify aims to solve
► Lack of trust in a team that affects delivery quality
► Feeling rushed at the end of an iteration
► Tending to work in silos rather than collaborate towards a common goal
► The number of bugs has increased, and there is not time to fix them
► The feeling that there is never enough value delivered despite a high WIP
► Meetings are unstructured and offer little value, especially the daily
► Workload does not allow a team to implement best practices or innovate
Axify is designed to help in these situations.
Many studies such as DORA (DevOps Research and Assessment) research and the SPACE framework showed that proactive observation is essential in predicting future performance in software development.
How does it work?
Axify is building off tools that teams already use, so that setting up Axify can take less than 10 minutes.
1. Connect integrations and invite team members
2. Axify can gather data along three axes proven to foster better software delivery
3. Discuss at-risk metrics and challenges as a team
Axify creates features for real-life dev team problems to give meaning to development metrics with actionable highlights.
► Integrates into the user's workflow
Users can continue to use favourite tools such as Slack, Microsoft Teams, Jira, Azure DevOps, GitHub and GitLab to gather metrics on team morale, processes, and workflows.
► Instant results
Axify starts gathering data and presenting dashboards as soon as its integrations are connected. The only exception is team morale, where Axify waits two weeks before generating the first report to ensure good data representation and anonymity.
► Increased transparency within the team
Includes a morale chatbot. It can automatically and anonymously, ask team members development-specific morale questions to quickly identify potential conflicts and foster vulnerability. Axify surveys contributors along five dimensions (stress, motivation, inclusion, security and alignment) with daily prompts to answer short and simple questions.
► No more “rush” at the end of the iteration
Software development is not deterministic, i.e. it is impossible to repeat the same experiment and always get the same result. So how can Axify predict software delivery? Its forecasting tool relies on multiple simulations based on the team's historical data to either predict how many items a team can deliver over a period of time or when a team will deliver a set number of items. And this happens in real-time.
► More collaboration towards a common goal
Provides an overview of everything going on in dashboards. Since Axify collects data in real-time, the user can stay on top of things and address issues as they arise. Plus, Axify focuses on team performance rather than individual wins to foster collaboration.
► Less bugs and improved QA
Axify's Technical Axis provides tools to analyze bottlenecks and areas of improvement in a Quality Assurance process. For example, are more Pull Requests being self-reviewed? Are bugs fixed quickly? Are developers leaving comments in their reviews? Axify provides answers to questions such as these.
► Deliver more value, more frequently, as a team
Working on many items at a time may sound great in theory ... but how many of them make it to deployment? That's where teams can deliver real value to clients and users. If a small team of developers is constantly working on big batches of items, it may be time to inspect WIP and work towards collaboration. As a side effect, items can get to Done quicker.
► Structured meeting that add value to the day
Axify's Daily Digest helps start off the day. Observe the state of a sprint at a glance and identify the most urgent tasks to discuss as a team. By gathering the data from the Process and Technical Axes on a single page, Axify helps inspire teams to have the right discussions during the meeting and thus maximize its efficiency. For those working with Kanban, the tool optimizes the workflow daily to help teams close tasks quicker.
► Implement best practices and innovate
Axify helps users to figure out where a team is in its processes so progress can be measured. In addition, Axify's Product Specialists and Agile Coaches are available to help find solutions.
