Apache Incubator welcomes DevLake: a data development platform for developers

Booming open-source DevOps technology DevLake joins Apache Software Foundation’s incubator to empower developers with transparent data.

We are honored to have DevLake join the Apache community, bringing transparent and personalized data to the lives and careers of developers, it’s a big step forward in making development data accessible everywhere.

SAN FRANCISCO, California, USA, May 18, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Merico, a development analytics startup backed by GGV Capital, Matrix Partners, Miracle Plus, Legendstar, OSS Capital and Polychain Capital, is honored to share today that the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) has voted to make DevLake an officially supported Apache Incubator project.

What is DevLake?
Launched in December 2021, DevLake is an open-source developer data platform that ingests, analyzes, and visualizes fragmented data in DevOps tools. Since December, it has become one of the top new open source projects on GitHub.

DevLake takes on a major challenge in software development. The development process is complex, requiring many tools and processes that create a storm of data scattered across many tools and formats, making it difficult to organize, query, and understand. DevLake makes it easy to aggregate and understand this rich data and translate it into actionable insights. Since its launch in December, DevLake has grown rapidly with thousands of downloads from developers around the world.

What is DevLake:
– DevLake collects, unifies and processes DevOps data across tools providing end-to-end visibility into tools such as Jira, GitHub, GitLab, Jenkins, etc.
– DevLake provides the most powerful data unification models combined with out-of-the-box metrics and customizable dashboards.
– DevLake provides developers and project managers with the tools to aggregate, query, view, and report on their entire software delivery process.

Why Apache?
First and foremost, Merico strongly believes in Apache’s principle of “Community over Code” and “The Apache Way”. We also believe that the Apache community has one of the strongest ecosystems for data-driven open source projects.

The Merico team and contributors look forward to building a vibrant, inclusive and diverse community under the guidance of our mentors throughout the incubator’s journey.

In the months leading up to DevLake acceptance, our mentors provided critical advice and suggestions to make this important moment a reality. We want to take this opportunity to thank and thank them:

– Willem Ning Jiang: DevLake Champion; ASF Member & Administrator
– Liang Zhang: Founder and CEO of SphereEx; ASF Member, Founder and PMC President of Apache ShardingSphere
– Lidong Dai: member of the ASF; Apache Chair DolphinScheduler PMC
– Sijie Guo: ASF member, PMC member of Apache Pulsar; Founder and CEO of StreamNative
– Felix Cheung: Member of ASF, PMC on Spark, Superset, Yunikorn, Zeppelin, Pinot and Incubator. SVP of Engineering at SafeGraph.
– Jean-Baptiste Onofré: ASF Member, Karaf PMC Chair, PMC on ActiveMQ, Archiva, Aries, Beam, Brooklyn, Camel, Carbondata, Felix, Incubator, and many others.

What’s next for DevLake?
– Improve system scalability and performance in large-scale data scenarios.
– Integrate more data sources and tools (JIRA, GitHub, GitLab and Jenkins are already supported.)
– Enable support for OLAP databases, giving users more choices.
– Provide out-of-the-box dashboard templates more specific to each use case, reflecting best practices and well-known methodologies to improve usability.

We invite developers and data-driven engineering enthusiasts to “dive into the lake” with us to develop and scale the world’s most powerful, transparent, and customizable data solution for developers.
