New Relic launches first-of-its-kind developer experience, joins forces with Microsoft

By Shannon Williams
Fri 29 Oct 2021

New Relic has announced the launch of New Relic CodeStream, a first-of-its-kind developer experience that brings observability and code collaboration into the most widely used Integrated Development Environments.

To deliver this new capability, New Relic has acquired CodeStream, a developer collaboration platform, and integrated it with New Relic One. 

New Relic CodeStream is an observability solution that connects application telemetry data directly to the relevant code inside the IDE, so developers can instrument, collaborate, and debug issues faster and more simply than ever before. The capability includes integrations with Microsofts VS Code, Visual Studio, Teams and GitHub, among other popular developer tools. New Relic is also announcing their new Core user pricing option, an affordable, accessible option to reduce barriers for developers to embrace observability.

"Whether connecting virtually, watching online entertainment or ordering groceries and other goods, the COVID-19 induced, rapid rise in demand for digital services and experiences has seen developers placed under more pressure than ever to create the best code possible, making them the unsung heroes of the pandemic," says Ben Goodman, SVP of New Relic Asia Pacific and Japan. 

"Our mission is to empower these innovators with the best tools and technology possible so that they can spend more time delivering the best possible digital experiences for their customers," he says.

"Thanks to the integration of CodeStream into New Relic One, engineers across the region will now have access to telemetry data and insights as part of the tools they use each and every day, making them more productive than ever."

Scott Guthrie, executive vice president, Cloud + AI, Microsoft, says developers are essential to helping organisations in every industry accelerate the use of new capabilities. 

"Our goal at Microsoft is to provide a wide range of services to address the real-world needs of customers," he says. 

"With partners like New Relic, it's exciting to see comprehensive integration support with New Relic CodeStream, spanning multiple Microsoft platforms and products: VS Code, Visual Studio, .NET, GitHub, Microsoft Teams and Azure DevOps, to name a few. 

"Tighter collaboration between development projects and improved connections between existing applications are just some of the benefits New Relic CodeStream will provide to the developer community."

Stephen Elliot, program vice president, management software and DevOps at analyst firm IDC, adds, "We believe that the world's professional developers need observability tools in order to accelerate innovation and build more delightful customer experiences. 

"There are powerful business opportunities in making observability a full software lifecycle engineering practice," he says.

"The companies who get it right are poised to not only multiply their total addressable market, but redefine the category with a developer-led approach."

Meeting Developers Where They Create

Developers own more of their applications' performance in production than ever before. However, their workflows to instrument, collaborate and debug production remain disconnected from the tools where they develop and spend most of their time. New Relic CodeStream addresses this opportunity by delivering a magical development experience which ingrains telemetry data and collaboration inside IDEs.

With New Relic CodeStream, engineers can now leverage the following capabilities directly from their IDE:

  • Instrument and Measure from IDE: Sign up for a free New Relic One account without entering a credit card and instrument their stack directly from their development environment.
  • Code Discussion and Reviews: Add inline code comments, trigger pull requests, request feedback and track issues directly from their IDE based on integrations with the most commonly used developer and communication tools.
  • Production Error Resolution: Jump from New Relic One into your IDE in a single-click to navigate, triage and action production errors in context of the specific code repository and lines of code.

"We founded CodeStream to transform how developers write, deploy and improve their code by building the industrys best collaboration platform, said Peter Pezaris, co-founder and chief executive of CodeStream. 

"With New Relic, we found a team and company completely aligned with our mission and values to accelerate our innovation and expand our reach to the global developer community. 

"I am proud to share the powerful new integration between CodeStream and New Relic with engineers around the globe, and Im excited about the continued innovations we will bring to market together."
