I wonder if anyone knows of a software that can help track team metrics?
I would like to see historical trends in things like total bug count, average time from bug opening to fixing, code coverage, etc.
Basically an open system that can plug into existing bug tracking, continuous integration, etc systems, pull data and visualise it nicely.
Does anything like that exist? If not I'll probably consider creating one. :-)
I think you will have to write your own solution to collect data because every organization has specific needs and environments and thus different applicable measures. Just do not expect to sell it: this is probably a typical application in the shadow zone (1K-30K).

The shadow zone is an unfeasible price range: under $ 1000 consumers and possibly some small business can pull their card and directly buy/subscribe the product. Over that price you a sales guy that will cost at least 1 K per opportunity but usually much more. Considering a 10% win rate that will account **alone** for $ 5K. Add marketing and support cost and hardly you can sell a product for less than 20 K. Unless you sell some kind of expensive consulting to the client (for example which metrics to use and how to analyze them). In this case you can even give the product for free.
