Organizations that can tap into the power of user feedback have seen enormous improvements in ROI over the past decades. It started with Agile via iterative deliveries of user value on a set cadence, usually every two to three weeks.

Enter DevOps.

Leaders, meanwhile, struggle to allow complete autonomy, fearing the sheer increase in variation between tools, processes and practices will make it impossible to collaborate and manage products across the organization.

“Coach, we’re not ready”, was what we kept saying, just a bunch of lowly high school rookie swimmers on our bus ride to the season’s first meet, the regional swimming invitationals. “Our times aren’t any good, we miss turns all the time, our goggles keep falling off on our starts”. We had tons of reasons but, underlying it all, was our fear of total embarrassment and failure.

Until recently, manual traceability has held back large-scale organizations from becoming software innovators. Now, enterprise toolchain integration is enabling heavily-regulated industries to trace all work from ideation to operation to provide them with one source of truth into how their software products are built and maintained. By connecting the toolchain and automating the flow of data between teams in real-time, you can systematically build out your end-to-end traceability across your software delivery value streams. The key is to start small and score some quick wins, before expanding until the whole end-to-end workflow is visible, dramatically reducing time and effort.

The time is now for organizations that want to survive and thrive in a digital first world. Tasktop gives you the ability to see through the black box of software delivery, align IT with business needs and accelerate time to market.

Over one million users employ Tasktop’s Value Stream Integration technology to transform software development and delivery. Tasktop not only unifies the software development and delivery teams, but also provides unprecedented visibility into the business critical processes of software delivery.

Built for Enterprise Scale:

  • Flow Modeling: Tasktop products are predicated on the concept of modeling, so the solutions can be configured by business users and easily scaled to the entire organization.
  • Tasktop's Flow Fabric provides the robust data capture layer, insulating your metrics and integrations from tool and environment changes.
  • The Flow Framework® provides the blueprint for practicing value stream management in Enterprise IT and shifting from project to product.
