Ah spring… the flowers start to bloom, the sun finally starts to make an appearance, people come out of hibernation, and patio brunches become the regular.
Oh, and it just so happens that one of our favourite events of the year takes place too, providing the perfect opportunity for the DevOps community to come together: The virtual DevOps Enterprise Summit, Europe (18-20 May 2021).
Tasktop at DOES Europe 2021
At our virtual booth and across various conference sessions, live demos and happy hours, we’re looking forward to continuing to help attendees make data-driven decisions that will help steer their unique DevOps and value stream management (VSM) journeys.
As our President and COO, Neelan Choksi, emphasizes in his recent blog for the Value Stream Management Consortium (VSMC): “A data-driven framework for measuring work across the entire value stream allows IT and the business to learn what’s actually happening in the software delivery process, to improve IT’s ability to deliver what the business needs and do digital transformations at scale. That collaboration across the entire organization is the real foundation of organizations that are going to survive this digital turning point and compete with digital native companies.”
Tasktop’s marketing-leading VSM Platform offers two independent but complementary VSM experiences to implement the Flow Framework® through Planview Hub und Planview Viz™. Business and technology leaders can begin their journey where their pain is most acute:
Planview Viz measures and analyzes flow in software delivery streams. Viz is where you go to see each product value stream’s software delivery metrics side-by-side with the key business results they need to achieve in terms of cost, value, quality and happiness. Its Flow Metrics dashboards combine value stream metrics and business results to truly bring IT and the business together in setting priorities and identifying areas for investment.
Planview Hub automates and accelerates flow through product value streams. Hub is a purpose-built integration solution for the software delivery toolchain. It flows the work to the practitioners effortlessly and plants traceable links between related artifacts to track work as it traverses complex collaboration networks.
Both products draw on live data captured from the software delivery toolchain by Tasktop’s Flow Fabric™ and utilize Flow Modeling to shape the raw data into meaningful and actionable information for the enterprise.
Stop by our booth to speak to our friendly team about these VSM experiences that are helping Fortune 500 companies and other large-scale organizations to accelerate the flow of customer value across your product value streams to adapt at a faster clip.
As you prepare for the virtual DOES Europe in the coming week, make sure you mark these events in your diary:
