CollabNet hosted recently a “Value Stream Management Success” webinar featuring Diego Lo Giudice, Vice President and Principal Analyst at Forrester, and Eric Robertson, Vice President of DevOps Product Engineering and Management at CollabNet. They had a lot to share about the value of value stream mapping (VSM) to DevOps.
VSM is a method – similar to a flow chart – that analyzes all of the events and processes involved in taking a product or service through production and to the customer. This webinar explored how VSM is an effective tool for DevOps teams in industries facing varying levels of digital disruption.
In his presentation, Lo Giudice compared Agile and DevOps as complementary practices, shared insight into the essential elements for delivering excellence with DevOps, emphasized the importance of automation in order to deliver quality software at speed, and explained the need for clear metrics throughout the entire DevOps lifecycle.
Lo Giudice also highlighted the benefits of VSM to uncover and measure waste along the entire pipeline – from the initial customer request to value delivered.
Robertson further covered monitoring and measurement from DevOps toolchains to value streams. He highlighted the challenges that result from disparate teams and tools and explained how the CollabNet DevOps Lifecycle Manager (DLM) solution can ensure value streams are managed in line with business priorities.
Robertson also reviewed key features of DLM that are designed to help enterprise-scale organizations achieve DevOps success by delivering fast, high-quality software.
The Big Takeaway
In order to meet growing customer needs that stem from digital disruption, organizations must deploy software faster than ever before. VSM plays an important role in achieving modern software delivery needs by demonstrating business value and revealing software pipeline health, which ultimately leads to improvements that drive DevOps success.
