World-class engineering teams rely on Cortex
Our customers do amazing things every day. We’re grateful to play a part in supercharging their already talented teams.
The system of record for engineering teams
Cortex integrates with all your critical tools to serve as a one-stop-shop for your whole team to understand, operate, and build new software.
Build a culture of continuous improvement
Find owners, share context, and eliminate hurdles to engineering excellence with the only IDP that answers both, “What should we do?” and “How did we do?”
Centralize service and resource ownership info
Score & Assess
Define minimum requirements and assess where services fall
Prescribe next steps
Define paths for improvement and templatize best practices
Take easy action
Incentivize developers to take recommendation actions
Deliver experiences tuned to each developer and reduce overhead
Align your team and drive accountability
Scorecards enable teams to drive what matters most to them – including service quality, production readiness standards, and migrations.
Tracking service quality on spreadsheets?
That’s a thing of the past.
Always up to date ownership
Never be surprised by an orphaned service. Assign ownership of services and Cortex will automatically keep it up to date by syncing with your Identity Provider.
The most extensible out of the box data model
Cortex’s unified data model was built to inherit the entities and relationships you’ve already defined, so you don’t waste time re-writing logic that connects your IdP, security, monitoring, and other tools. Use logical defaults to ensure consistency, or adjust to suit any use case.
A trusted partner for every phase of your journey
Whether you’re focused on developer self-service, or just want to know who owns what, our team of experts is ready to accelerate your journey towards engineering excellence.
"Prior to Cortex, it was impossible to track what services aligned with best practices we defined. Incidents would be caused by assumptions that standards were followed—which was rarely true."
Completely customizable with plugins
Bring data from anywhere including internal tools, expose custom metrics like cost insights, and trigger actions like deployments right from the Cortex UI.
Loved by entire engineering teams
Cortex is loved not only by platform engineers but also across the entire engineering organization, including SREs, security engineers, DevOps, infrastructure and platform teams, and leadership.
"Cortex lets all our engineers see the quality and reliability of a service they own in one single place, helping us drive best practices across our organization."
“Cortex was a critical piece of our Log4j mitigation effort. The ability to easily identify owners and correlate Snyk reporting really allowed us to focus on getting patched instead of managing spreadsheets and lists.”
"One of the biggest improvements we’ve seen since implementing Cortex is in our Mean Time to Restore—which we reduced by 67%. Being able to quickly find service information is a small operational change that has enormous impact.”
"Cortex helps unite our organization in defining cross-cutting standards of excellence. We plan to share our learnings about best practices here to help the whole community reach new levels of software maturity, security,and reliability.”
What’s new in our blog
Introducing Cortex Eng Intelligence
Today’s methods for measuring engineering efficiency have not proven effective in improving team velocity (or morale). Cortex’s latest product seeks to flip the equation on how engineering metrics are used, starting with where they’re collected.
The only way to measure developer productivity without causing a revolt
In this post I attempt to summarize the productivity debate to date, and offer my take on what’s missing—not how we measure productivity, but where.
