Peritus.ai, the AI recommendation engine for developer self-service, has launched the Peritus Assistant for Slack to empower developers with rapid and informative responses to their most common questions on a wide range of cloud-native technologies including Kubernetes, Docker, Kafka, Elastic, MongoDB, and numerous open source projects.
In addition, Peritus has closed $3.4 million in seed plus funding, which was co-led by First Ray Ventures and Benhamou Global Ventures. With these two important milestones, Peritus is now ideally positioned to accelerate customer adoption of its offerings for cloud-native developers and communities.
With the latest $3.4 million seed plus funding, First Ray Ventures and BGV have joined existing investors IdeaSpring and The Hive. Peritus will use the funding to accelerate investments in go-to-market activities and expand the topics and technologies it supports in its recommendation engine.
To bring developers instant recommendations from all trusted sources as they work, Peritus has built a knowledge network of over 27 million questions, answers, tips from published content, and conversations on Stack Overflow, related community product forums, and GitHub for 25 of the leading open source and proprietary cloud-native technologies.
The Peritus Recommendation Engine uses machine learning and AI to source and rank all of the information by filtering the answers provided by over one million qualified community experts to help developers quickly find the best responses to their questions.
Previously available as a Chrome Extension for community forums, developers can now also tap into this comprehensive knowledge network through the Peritus Assistant for Slack.
The Peritus Assistant for Slack is available immediately in several options.
