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 professionals, and leadership.
"Cortex has tremendously helped with the visibility and discoverability of service info.
It’s very easy for a new engineer to learn more about the services they own and their downstream dependencies. We can understand what a service is calling, who it’s owners are, and where the documentation lives in one single dashboard."

5 ways to measure the quality of your engineering culture
We’ve looked at five pillars of high-performing engineering organizations to show you how to standardize, quantify, and track your way to a better culture.
Three steps to a culture of quality
When it comes to working with microservices vs. a monolith, there are some cultural changes that every engineering team should consider. These three tips will help you avoid tricky sources of inefficiency and build better services.
Introducing the Resource Catalog
The Resource Catalog offers unparalleled visibility into your infrastructure, unlocking the ability for developers to manage and track these assets just like services. By promoting ownership and accountability, the Resource Catalog revolutionizes the way we see service architecture.
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.
A single source of truth for your services
Cortex’s service catalog integrates with the most popular engineering tools, giving teams an easy way to understand everything about their architecture.
