Building Opsview Monitor 5.1- A New Approach
It's never easy building features for a new release as the tendency is to get carried away and attempt to build everything at once. We can all say we have been there and done that many times. Typically the release date slips, people get frustrated...you get the picture. For our latest Opsview Monitor 5.1 release, we decided to change our process and implemented an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) approach. A noteworthy example in which we took this route is for My Links, one of our trademark features for Opsview Monitor 5.1. Our latest Opsview Monitor 5.1 blog breaks down why the MVP concept was successful for My Links in particular and provides insight into how we can deliver helpful features quicker than ever before!
