Datree, the first Git-Centric Operations Management Platform, launched today and announced $3 million in funding from venture capital firm TLV Partners.
Datree, founded by Israeli developers Arthur Schmunk, Eyar Zilberman and Shimon Tolts, addresses the challenges of modern software development by cataloging an organization’s whole development stack, automating Git tasks and blocking dangerous changes to applications and infrastructure. Datree has secured design partners such as HoneyBook, SimilarWeb and PlayBuzz.
Agile and DevOps deconstructed software companies into small autonomous teams using different programming languages, multiple repositories and microservices. But this autonomy comes at a cost. Software teams sometimes have no idea what code components other teams are using or who’s working on what; company standards become optional, because there’s no way to enforce them without excessive control; and CIOs, Software Architects and DevOps Managers have lost visibility into the company’s stack because it’s so distributed.
Companies can have hundreds or even thousands of Git repositories, linked by a complicated network of dependencies, with automated processes building and deploying them into applications in ways that nobody fully understands.
Datree solves this problem. First, it scans all of a company’s public and private repositories to build a catalog of the entire company’s ecosystem: all the code components (packages, infrastructure as code, cloud services and more), as well as people and repositories.
Then, datree’s smart policy engine helps developers work within an organization’s best-practice guidelines. Developers get real-time information and insights pushed to their existing work environment via the command line, Slack and GitHub dialogs, to help them make informed decisions. Datree checks every pull request against user-defined policies, and blocks risky code components, unstable versions, and and unauthorized changes to ‘infrastructure as code’ and Git configurations.
