It makes us very excited about the future for OverOps.”
OverOps increases developer productivity and allows organizations to accelerate delivery of reliable software. Unlike any other solution, OverOps is present when an application breaks and collects a snapshot of the complete state at the point of execution for both known and unknown issues. This snapshot is used to speed investigation of critical production application errors and can also be used by other tools to optimize delivery of applications from development through production. This enables over 200 enterprise customers such as Comcast, TripAdvisor and Intuit to ship more reliable software. OverOps employs over 80 employees in its San Francisco and Tel Aviv offices.
