Socratic is now open to all

Brad Hipps


It’s been 523 days since we announced Socratic’s private beta. Today, I’m happy to announce that Socratic is available to everyone.

In the days since, we’ve worked closely with our early users and design partners to rethink task management from the ground up—this time built around AI. The whole aim of Socratic is to provide actionable intelligence that helps teams work easier, faster, and better, without all of the usual digging and querying and spreadsheeting required by legacy task tools.

You shouldn’t have to write JQL queries.

You shouldn’t have to buy BI tools, or git analytic tools, or plugins.

You shouldn’t have to hire more headcount just to build and maintain reports.

You shouldn’t have to buy separate product planning tools to make business sense of what’s happening in your task tool.

With Socratic, you no longer have to. You can focus on building great product, and let our AI-powered intelligence show you how well you work, and why.

As you plan and build, Socratic harnesses that work activity to create a single, real-time view into health and progress for any body of work. No querying, no manual rollups, no wasted effort.

Using data to work easier, faster, better

With today’s release, we’re also publishing our Guide: How We Build Socratic.

Here, we lay out how the right kind of data—actionable, plainspoken, consequential—changes the game for software and product teams.

We consider how the Jira-Agile industrial complex has resulted in lots of jobs for Scrum Masters and Jira architects, but somehow hasn’t made engineering’s life much easier.

If this resonates with you, if you’ve been looking for a better way, look no further. You’ve come to the right place.

Try Socratic for free, including all features, with as many team members as you like. Tell us what you think, and what you’d like to see added. See how Socratic works for you—and remember, the current intelligence in the product is just the tip of the iceberg. Our data science is unlocking new insights as I type…

The past decades have been largely about engineering automation (DevOps, etc.). This decade will be about engineering intelligence. Here’s that beginning.
