Maximizing the Value in Value Stream Management with DevOps

Presented by: 
Apptio Target Process logo

Value streams provide organizations a much more nimble approach to software development and product delivery, with more focus on improving the flow to the end product. The funding of value streams, however, is quite different than a traditional project-based approach which puts more emphasis on up-front planning and hinders productivity and morale. Moving to a lean budgeting model introduces a new way of thinking about budget guardrails that allows for more autonomy and creativity from development teams. This requires more clarity and transparency in order to communicate the value back to business leaders and executives.

Join Mark Des Biens, Solutions Consultant with Apptio Targetprocess, where he will showcase:

  • How the work teams are doing can be rolled up to program and portfolio level views that speak the language of business value
  • How Targetprocess can integrate with common DevOps and agile tools
  • Dashboards and reports that help in prioritization of value streams
