Release Insights

Release small, and frequent.

Now with Athenian you can’t only measure your release cycle time but also understand its frequency. In particular if you have a service based architecture that depends on multiple releases, understanding your release frequency per repository will be useful to help you understand the true velocity at which you’re moving and where potential bottlenecks are.
