Watch this short video to familiarize yourself how DevRev helps you bring your Devs closer to your Revs.

Core concepts#

DevRev bridges siloes by connecting three core objects: identity, work, and parts. By connecting work to parts and parts to customer and developer identity, we bring Devs closer to their Revs.

Identity#

  • Dev refers to you and your team.
  • Rev refers to your customer.

Parts#

Part is a related piece of a product and can be made of Rev Parts and Dev Parts

  • Rev Parts relate to how a product is consumed by your customers, with three main types: product, capability, and features.
  • Dev Parts are the code, service, or components built or used by the developer.
  • Rev Parts, such as features and capabilities are often served by one or more Dev Parts.

Work#

Work is anything that requires activity to be performed by a human or machine; it requires an owner and some level of effort

  • Conversation: A conversational work item that may be escalated to a ticket.
  • Ticket: A work item created by the customer or consumer.
  • Issue: A work item created by the builder or maintainer.
  • Task: A work item typically used to break down larger work.

Trails#

One of your first experience in the app will be in DevRev Trails. Build your Trail, create Rev and Dev Parts and connect them to enable your teams to be product-led and customer-centric. Learn more about creating parts and trails here.

Import issues#
