Software development, meet big data. That’s why Harpreet and I are starting Launchable.
As the creator of Jenkins, I had the unique privilege to go see many software development teams around the world. And a consistent theme has been emerging. Data is making a profound impact to all kinds of businesses, where gut and instinct-driven decisions are replaced by quantifiable metrics and models, which enables a whole new angle of process/efficiency improvements. Yet in the software development field, we still largely seem to be driven by our individual experiences, beliefs, and instincts. Quite simply, this IS the obstacle to the launch of your new software, hence the name “Launchable.”
