* “Contributors” is defined as the number of unique people who have been active in the data sources over the last 90 days. It is limited only to the Jira boards, Azure teams, or repos being gathered by Plandek.
If you are gathering data from a workflow management tool such as Jira or Azure, your Contributors is based on the number of unique people active on the respective Jira boards or Azure teams over the last 90 days. Repo and CI/CD contributors are free of charge in this scenario, provided they do not exceed the number of Jira/Azure contributors.
If you do not have a workflow management tool integrated into Plandek, your Contributors will be based on the number of engineers active in the respective repos (e.g committers, reviewers, approvers).

Why users love Plandek
Head of Engineering, Alef Education
“After almost 2 years with Plandek, the conversation has shifted a lot among the leaders and many team members from ‘why’ to ‘how’. Although we have already seen improvements in our metrics, we are just now feeling a shift in mindset which will bear fruit in the future.”
VP Head of Delivery, Preqin
“The Plandek team supported us when we needed to make customisation and changes. It’s a very quick and simple tool to use. We can create custom dashboards, which focus on specific teams, but it also enables us to scale.”
Chief Product Officer, PEI Media
“If you want to know if engineering is running efficiently, Plandek gives you the complete picture. If I could take one product with me to a new company, it would be Plandek – and I did when I joined PEI Media.”
CTO, TalkTalk Group
“Effective technology delivery is a key strategic differentiator for our business. Plandek enables me to track and drive delivery effectiveness – putting intelligent insight in the hands of my teams and enabling me to communicate success better with my stakeholders.”
Senior Software Delivery Operations Manager, Skyscanner
“Essential tool to support teams in modern software delivery. Plandek helps teams to understand their areas for improvement in a way that the default charts in Jira don’t enable…”
Portfolio CTO, Hg Capital
‘We are here to help our portfolio companies accelerate their value delivery. The effectiveness of their technology delivery – and the ROI of their R&D – is a key piece of that jigsaw. Plandek enables our portfolio companies to track and drive their R&D ROI, as part of their broader value creation approach.’
Head of Digital, Ministry of Justice
“At the MoJ, we believe that data is the best way to drive continual improvement and build an effective delivery culture. Plandek has enabled us to focus our organisation on the delivery behaviours that drive the right outcomes whilst providing our people with a robust tool to support coaching and learning opportunities.”
CEO, TalkTalk Group
“Technology delivery was an area that lacked a ‘balanced scorecard’ of metrics to share with the C-suite. Plandek provides those metrics whilst also enabling the delivery team (from squad level upwards) to optimise around the metrics that I care about. As such it is tremendously powerful.”
Frequently asked questions
Plandek is ideal for organisations at any stage of maturity, but especially those just starting as having a baseline is critical for any team looking to demonstrate progress.
Teams at an early phase of agile adoption will focus on a simple set of metrics to highlight and track improvements over time (e.g. Cycle Time). As they advance, insights will reach deeper into specific behaviours and across different phases of your delivery lifecycle to enrich your understanding of how you deliver and where further opportunities lie to improve.
To help you assess how far you are in your Agile journey, we’ve created our Agile Maturity Assessment that lets you benchmark your performance against leading organisations.
Plandek has been architected specifically to address scale and complexity. You can connect all of your on-prem and/or cloud instances of tools, as well as a combination of those tools (e.g. Plandek can concurrently pull data from multiple on-prem and cloud instances of Jira, Azure, Bitbucket, Github, and many more).
Once ingested, data is standardised in Plandek so that regardless of the source, the data is able to handle a diverse set of workflows, statuses, issue types, and so on, and can be normalised so that you can look across a broad ecosystem of diverse configurations but the data displays in a simple, user-friendly way.
Yes, this is a key differentiator for Plandek, as we provide our Plandek customers with all the help that they need!
Our Customer Success Team provide a simple framework to help you select a hierarchy of meaningful metrics and to embed their use (via Plandek) throughout your delivery capability – to drive real performance improvement over time.
In addition, we offer paid professional services (PS) packages for more extensive coaching, implementation and change management initiatives if required.
Data security is critical for all our clients and we have architected Plandek from the ground up to be secure.
- Plandek is a SaaS solution hosted in the Google European cloud.
- Plandek’s key data sources are workflow management tools (e.g. Jira); code repos. (e.g. Git); and CI/CD tools (e.g. Jenkins).
- Plandek only stores metadata about the development process and avoids storing data that may hold sensitive IP (as such Plandek does NOT store data such as ticket descriptions, source code, commit messages, attachments or comments). Examples of metadata stored include transitions of issues, the time of commits and pull requests.
- All-access to your toolsets is performed over encrypted connections. Plandek uses read-only accounts and will never change data in the source systems.
- All-access credentials which are held are encrypted with Google Key Management Service, giving us the ability to monitor decryptions and revoke and rotate keys regularly.
Yes, customers can choose from a range of paid professional services packages to provide more extensive change management support to embed Plandek and help you create a data-led delivery culture. This includes our quarterly benchmarking analysis, which is available from our expert team of analysts.
