Hatica v3: Closing the Loop on Driving Engineering Productivity

Today is a big day for Hatica. Three years ago, Hatica started as a small team with a big dream – to help engineering teams leverage data to be more productive and efficient. Since Day 1, we have been working hard to figure out ways for data to be more easily accessible, meaningful, actionable, and not counter-productive for engineering teams. And we're thrilled to announce the launch of Hatica v3 which is one step ahead in the direction of building advanced Engineering Management Platforms for modern-day engineering teams. 

Hatica v3 brings a fresh approach to EMP with advanced analytics. It helps you see the big picture, monitor and measure developer productivity at individual, team, and project levels, set goals, and improve your overall engineering operations thereby establishing a constructive feedback loop for engineering teams.

Our advanced engineering analytics allow you to go beyond surface-level metrics and dive deep into the core of your engineering processes. By providing a holistic view, Hatica v3 enables you to identify patterns, uncover insights, and make data-driven decisions that drive real improvement.
With the Hatica v3 release, we are ensuring that the data doesn’t consume you rather you can consume data hassle-free with ease to drive engineering excellence within your teams. This update reflects our dedication to creating an advanced engineering management platform, with a focus on stitching together the four pillars of engineering productivity: team alignment, delivery velocity, software code quality, and developer experience. 

Let’s dive deep into what Hatica v3 brings to the table. 

We Listened to You!

Hatica v3 is built on the feedback from our customers, prospects, and engineering leaders. After speaking with 100s of tech leaders, innovators, and engineering managers we realized data availability alone is not the problem but how easy it is to access data, what meaningful actionable can be derived from that data, and how it impacts each individual in the engineering team matters as much. Hatica v3 is a huge leap towards bridging these gaps for engineering teams that are looking for reliable data to steer success!

We know data is only helpful when it tells a story. That's why Hatica v3 goes beyond plain numbers and vanilla navigation – it connects the dots, highlighting interconnectedness between various metrics (and indicators) giving you clear insights to make smarter decisions.

Every click inside the Hatica platform - with Hatica v3- delves into deeper insights unleashing information that otherwise would have always remained hidden and unfound.

Here at Hatica, we focus on four key pillars to help your engineering team succeed: Alignment, Velocity, Quality, and Developer Experience. These together are the cornerstones of our philosophy behind bringing this release to reality. This helps us map every single data point to its rightful place across the SDLC, identify what the actual pain point or blocker is, spend time and effort fixing the right things, and get you closer to your goals. 

In our conversation with engineering leaders, we asked them specific questions, and observed their working styles and how they run their engineering teams in order to understand:

  • How are their engineering teams structured? 
  • What are the key engineering metrics or KPIs that are quintessential to them?
  • How much data is available to them and how easily can it be accessed?
  • Are you able to find and navigate the data you mostly need?
  • How meaningful and actionable is that data?

After having talked to so many of them, we could identify the following:

  • Data accessibility is one of the key challenges. Most engineering leaders struggle to find the right data at the right time
  • A poorly designed productivity tool prevents them from navigating between dashboards and obtaining relevant insights.
  • Broken user journeys limit data exploration beyond a certain point thereby diminishing the use of data
  • Lack of guidance on translating metrics into actionable steps for improvement.

Ultimately, how can we ensure that engineering teams and leaders can leverage data to the best of their use in their day-to-day work and long-term planning? This is where Hatica v3 pitches in. 

Finding the right information shouldn't be hard. With Hatica v3, we've made navigation simpler and more logical. Dashboards are now grouped by projects, teams, and activities (more in detail later). This change makes it easier to get the insights you need quickly and efficiently.

Data That Makes Sense for Your Team

Every engineering team is unique, tackling problems in their own ways. In my experience, this is why a one-size-fits-all approach to data just doesn't work.

Hatica v3 is here to change that. With this release, we aim to democratize engineering management by simplifying adoption and increasing data utility as per the unique needs of each engineering team. 

Now, you can create custom dashboards that focus on the data that matters most to your team.

Think of it as building your personalized news feed, but instead of daily headlines, it helps you identify and address gaps within your engineering team. This targeted insight drives you toward building a strong and healthy engineering team, ensuring that your team’s specific challenges are met with the right data and support.

Here's What You Get with Hatica v3:
