Each year is a box full of new challenges and new opportunities and 2022 was no stranger to the fact. At Hatica, we can definitely call 2022 as the launching pad of all our goals, and commitment to the cause we stand for- helping engineering teams pursue excellence without hassle.
A few years ago, when I was brainstorming engineering analytics with Haritabh, my co-founder at Hatica - we had only imagined the idea and the product to be super useful for engineering teams across the globe. And why not! There had been no such thing that could give an engineering leader a holistic perspective about their teams, projects, progress and its success!
We realized patterns within engineering teams, independent of size, or product they were building- The leaders were struggling to keep their developers happy and satisfied, and on the other side, devs felt alienated from their own work. We hit the market in 2020 and our product has been an instant hit with the engineering teams since Day1. Engineering leaders starting their day with Hatica dashboards and we love that!
No wonder, Hatica bagged the High Performer title under the G2 Winter Report 2023 (read more here) with #1 rating for Likelihood to Recommend in the Software Development Analytics tool category. And what makes me beam with happiness is the Users Love Us badge (that we received along with) - a direct testament of our product capabilities and how much users love using our product. Sigh!
But, let me tell you it’s not been a cakewalk. 2022 has been monumental in shaping who we are today, what we have achieved and where do we go on from here. Let me break this Year in Review into smaller sections to your interest:

The Cool Features Hatica Launched
From our early days at work (even before Hatica was conceptualized), we knew that developer happiness was a challenge, and every engineering team had some foundational bottlenecks to resolve. While we, as engineers, knew the pressing need of introducing developer analytics, there were not enough options in the market. That’s how Hatica came into the picture.
Hatica didn’t just address the elephant in the room- measuring developer productivity, or engineering blockers, but also helped set the narrative around developer analytics, and why every engineering team should be using them. Developer analytics is not just about running behind a single metric, be it PRs merged, or cycle time, but giving a 360 degree view of how things are moving in the software development life cycle.
This year, we added some super cool functionalities so teams have greater visibility into workflows, with data-driven actionable insights. With the Activity log and Cycle Time dashboard, engineering managers can get an aggregated view of not only work items, but the velocity at which the projects are moving.
