Echoes uses the data it collects from its integrations to produce activity reports.
Echoes is deliberately designed to present actionable data, and not the exhaustivity of things that can be measured as part of a software development flow.

- The alignment section gives a bird-eye view of how efforts in the teams (in line) are being allocated against your company goals and projects (in column). This view gives a very simple overview of how engineering budget is being used, in a way that can be presented to a CEO or a CFO.
