Value Stream Management Solutions
The disciplines of DevOps and continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) have helped transform the way that IT operations and software development are conducted. Value stream management (VSM) addresses gaps in these methodologies by asking the question: “Are the solutions I create delivering real value to the business, its customers, and its users?”
VSM providers offer specific techniques for data collection, process management, analytics, and visualization to improve visibility and refine focus on the value being delivered by teams. They go further to gauge how well organizations are supported to build and deliver more effective solutions while ensuring that engineering teams and other stakeholders can work productively and without undue stress. Ultimately, successful VSM solutions are business-enablement tools, rather than technical dashboards.
