New Relic Brings Error Tracking into Atlassian Open DevOps Solution

New Relic | August 10, 2022 | Read time : 02:50 min

New Relic
New Relic , the observability company, today announced it has joined the Atlassian Platform Partner Program as part of the Atlassian Open DevOps solution that integrates Jira Software with popular DevOps tools. New Relic has integrated errors inbox with Jira Software to empower developers to easily access and set up full stack error tracking and software performance monitoring from inside Jira Software, Atlassian’s issue and project management tool. With this integration, developers can create Jira Software issues directly within errors inbox, the New Relic platform functionality for error tracking. This announcement coincides with the launch of the Jira Software toolchain page, which helps developer teams to discover and install DevOps tools to improve DevOps practices across their software development lifecycle.

“As applications grow more complex, developers need a system in place to proactively fix errors before the customer experience is impacted,” said Peter Pezaris, SVP, Strategy and User Experience at New Relic. “Errors inbox for Jira Software, which builds on the strong history between New Relic and Atlassian, makes developers’ lives easier by allowing them to get to the root cause faster with full error details — including stack traces — and alerts whenever a critical, customer-impacting error arises. Ticketing is made easier, too, as teams can instantly create Jira Software issues with all the right information, without leaving their error management workflow.”

Key benefits and capabilities of the New Relic and Jira Software integration include:
  • Track, triage, and resolve errors in one place: Errors are grouped and displayed on a single screen for visibility and easy triaging. Tackle errors across the full application stack with APM, RUM, Mobile, and Serverless (Lambda Functions) data tracked.
  • Resolve errors before impacting customers: Proactively review and triage errors before they affect customers. Get to the root cause faster with full error details, including stack traces and logs in context, provided in the error inbox.
  • Collaborate across teams: Squash bugs as a team with shared error visibility, shared comments, and an integration with Slack.
  • Create Jira Software issues with a click: With the new integration, set up templates and quickly file Jira ​​Software issues containing error details, associated issues, and direct links to the stack trace and entities in New Relic for easy debugging.

“Atlassian and New Relic share a vision to improve the developer experience by meeting users where they are and allowing them to use the tools they know and love. “We are excited to include New Relic errors inbox as an app in the Jira Software toolchain page, which makes it easier for millions of users to discover and connect DevOps apps used throughout the software development lifecycle to fill gaps in the toolchain as their DevOps practices evolve.”

Bryant Lee, VP of Partnerships and Developer Experience at Atlassian

“We have been really impressed with how New Relic errors inbox offers a single place to track all the errors for the entire stack," said Mudit Mehta, Software Engineer II at Postman. "Errors inbox helps developers save time instead of looking and jumping through multiple tools for cloud-based or external error tracking. With the integration for Jira Software, I can quickly view an error and notify the right team members by filing a templated Jira Software issue in seconds without even leaving the New Relic platform.”

The Jira Software toolchain page is the latest collaboration between New Relic and Atlassian. The integration builds on the recent launch of the Bitbucket quickstart in New Relic Instant Observability, which gives engineers visibility into the health and performance of their Bitbucket pipelines to continuously improve and optimize their deployments. Developers can also connect Jira Software to New Relic alerts to help the right teams get the right information in the software development life cycle.

Errors inbox for Jira Software is available for free to all New Relic full platform users and Jira Cloud users. For more information, visit www.newrelic.com. Additional integrations for Atlassian’s Connect applications with errors inbox and other capabilities will be available later this year.

Inworld AI Closes $50M Series A to Populate Video Games and the Metaverse with Interactive AI-Driven Characters

Inworld AI | August 24, 2022

Inworld AI, a developer platform for creating AI-driven virtual characters, founded by conversational AI pioneers Ilya Gelfenbeyn, Michael Ermolenko, and Kylan Gibbs, today announced the close of its Series A funding round. The company has raised an additional $50 million to bring richer social interactions to immersive worlds in gaming, metaverses, entertainment, and brand experiences. Section 32 and Intel Capital led the round, which also included investments from Founders Fund, Accelerator Investments LLC, First Spark Ventures, Kleiner Perkins, BITKRAFT Ventures, CRV, Microsoft’s M12 fund, Micron Ventures, LG Technology Ventures, SK Telecom Venture Capital, NTT Docomo Ventures, and The Venture Reality Fund. Inworld brings characters to life for gaming, metaverse, and business applications. While virtual worlds have become more immersive, realistic, and open, interactions with characters have remained relatively static, relying on scripted dialogue and behavior. Ilya Gelfenbeyn, Inworld CEO, said, “In the last year, we’ve seen research that shows that online relationships can be as meaningful as those formed in real life. With Inworld, you can create gaming NPCs (non-playable characters), native populations for virtual worlds, virtual influencers, brand representatives, in-world guides, and digital humans that can forge relationships with users and unlock deeper engagement. This is the future of entertainment–stories that are told through characters with a rich inner life, that audiences are invited to participate in, and take immersion to the next level.” Inworld uses advanced AI to build generative characters whose personalities, thoughts, memories, and behaviors are designed to mimic the deeply social nature of human interaction. The Inworld platform features a no-code studio that makes the creation of AI characters accessible to writers, designers, and creators. Integrations with the most popular game engines, like Unreal and Unity, make it easy for developers to deploy characters into game environments. “Inworld’s AI platform removes the complexities of developing intelligent virtual characters with the potential to unlock a variety of new online experiences. “Applications for Inworld’s platform transcend what’s possible in gaming and the metaverse alone, and enable enterprises to deliver rich, on-brand experiences with AI-powered virtual characters capable of delivering memorable user experiences.” Andy Harrison, Managing Partner at Section 32 “The demand for immersive content and experiences is rising, ushering in a thriving creator economy and unlocking opportunities for individual developers,” said Srini Ananth, Managing Director at Intel Capital. “Inworld has quickly become a trusted resource for developers, who are flocking to the platform to create AI-powered virtual characters with human-like speech, facial gestures and body language for immersive realities including the metaverse, VR/AR, games, and virtual worlds.” Since Inworld’s founding in July 2021, the company has raised a total of approximately $70 million, which includes the $50 million Series A, following pre-seed and seed rounds totaling nearly $20 million. Since closing its seed round in March 2022, Inworld released its beta product, hired Academy Award winner John Gaeta as Chief Creative Officer, and was selected as one of six companies to join the 2022 Disney Accelerator. This year’s Disney Accelerator class is focused on building the future of immersive experiences and specializes in technologies such as augmented reality (AR), non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and artificial intelligence (AI) characters. Inworld has broad applications outside of gaming and metaverse, and can also be used for entertainment, sales & marketing, and training & education. About Inworld AI Inworld AI is a developer platform for creating AI-driven virtual characters for gaming, the metaverse, VR/AR, and immersive experiences. Inworld’s founders pioneered conversational AI platforms and generative models at API.AI (acquired by Google and now known as Dialogflow), Google, and DeepMind. The company continues to build its talented team, with experts in generative language models, emotions, speech synthesis, multimodal interaction, design, and 3D animation. Inworld is funded by investors including Section 32, Intel Capital, Founders Fund, Accelerator Investments LLC, BITKRAFT Ventures, First Spark Ventures, The Venture Reality Fund, Kleiner Perkins, CRV, Meta, Microsoft’s M12 fund, Micron Ventures, LG Technology Ventures, NTT Docomo Ventures, and SK Telecom Venture Capital.
