In the wake of COVID-19, businesses are focusing on reducing costs and shifting commerce and operations to digital channels. Business leaders are frustrated by the slow pace of their digital transformation which is due in large part to a lack of visibility into the business. As McKinsey recently reported*, ”While companies have had many digital pilots and initiatives in place, they didn’t add up to a coherent and integrated digital engine to drive the business forward.” Value stream management can help business leaders accelerate and realize real digital transformation by providing a unified view of business value streams that enable business and IT teams to collaborate in creating and delivering value.
“To thrive in today’s post-COVID-19 digital economy, enterprises with large software organizations need to reinvent their organization for speed with a value stream approach,” said Ashok Reddy, our CEO. “Our Intelligent Value Stream Platform helps enterprises to create, explore, and deliver profitable value propositions, such as secure digital experiences their customers love and trust. We are delighted to be recognized by Forrester as a leader in this market, and we use this opportunity to underscore our commitment to connecting business value streams to software value streams to truly scale digital transformation for enterprises.”
Powered by an AI/ML-driven analytics engine, our Intelligent Value Stream Platform provides a unified value stream solution, including enterprise agile planning with continuous delivery and release orchestration, continuous testing, and application security to help organizations align software development value streams to business outcomes.
