Viva Las Vegas: Tasktop at DevOps Enterprise Summit 2018

Viva Las Vegas: Tasktop at DevOps Enterprise Summit 2018

It seems like only yesterday that the Tasktop team was wrapping up DevOps Enterprise Summit London in June. Yet in less than two weeks, we’re back and ready to rock ‘n’ roll in Las Vegas once again to help attendees to accelerate the business value of their software delivery.

At DevOps Enterprise Summit Las Vegas 2018 (October 22-24, 2018, The Cosmopolitan), Tasktop (Booth 201) will explain why it’s time to go beyond CI/CD by adopting an end-to-end value stream approach to software delivery.

In terms of optimizing the “build and deploy” stages of software delivery, Agile and DevOps have been a success, enabling priority features to be built and released into production faster than ever. But what about what happens before and after a product has been built and deployed? By looking outside of DevOps/release stages, Tasktop can help organizations to:

  • Scale their DevOps transformations
  • Greatly improve their time to value (TtV) of their software delivery
  • Visualize flow to find bottlenecks/root causes of sub-optimal performance
  • Glean flow metrics for continuous improvement
