Develocity enables EarnIn to cut build and test feedback cycles by 75%

The problem

Lack of observability into performance

  • Minimizing time wasted waiting on build and test feedback, both locally and on CI
  • Operating without any insights into the root cause of build, test, and CI failures, as well as limited build and test performance observability
  • Mitigating the negative impact on time-to-market due to difficulty in managing the growth of build and test cycles as the codebase grew
Develocity has been awesome at streamlining our build processes. It's also great at troubleshooting slow spots in building our services.

Develocity is a mission-critical component of our developer productivity strategy and an important enabling technology for our digital transformation strategy.

The solution

Comprehensive reports to provide observability

  1. 1
    Build Cache to reduce build times by enabling the reuse of unchanged build and test outputs that are unaffected by new code, and Performance Continuity to sustain the performance
  2. 2
    gains achieved by Build Cache
  3. 3
    Build Scan® to provide observability and comprehensive reports on all aspects of builds — useful in troubleshooting build failures and performance problems
  4. 4
    Failure Analytics to track and build and test failures—including flaky tests—for prioritization and resolution

The outcome

Rapid resolution of failures

  • In less than 3 months, EarnIn repaid their investment in Develocity
  • Build Cache reduced build & test feedback cycle times by 75%
  • Build Scan enabled more rapid resolution of failures and granular observability into all build and test processes
