IT toolstacks keep growing, with specialized tools that improve the efficiency of the business analysts, developers, testers, and service desk reps involved in the software delivery value stream. The problem is: NOTHING IS FLOWING!
Tasktop was no exception. We struggled with the lack of visibility, communication bottlenecks, inefficiencies and waste created by a disconnected toolchain. In this webinar, we’ll describe the problems we faced and how we’ve solved them with relative ease through automation across our value stream.
During this webinar, cPrime Agile Coach, Brian Mulconrey, and Tasktop Business Analyst, Rebecca Dobbin, present why leading program and project management officers are learning to love Agile program management because it provides powerful tools for tackling their five leading challenges:
With the fast pace of software delivery today, change is the only constant. Organizations are investing in new staff, tools, and processes to drive Agile, DevOps, and ITSM initiatives.
The problems that occur are not the changes themselves, but the disconnected nature of the changes. Many organizations are adopting new tools to improve collaboration within the individual disciplines (Agile planning, test automation, change management, etc.). However, the challenges that occur are often in the collaboration between the disciplines and productivity suffers from disconnected tools and poor visibility.
Change Requests are a key example of a process spanning multiple disciplines. It is essential to automate the flow of Change Requests and establish traceability with affected artifacts such as requirements, tests, and test results.
During this webinar Erik Parow of Tx3 Services and Mara Puisite of Tasktop demonstrate how to:
Integration is at the heart of value stream improvement. In software, your value stream spans different domains and tools, which makes integration unavoidable. You need a seamless flow of information between people and tools to refine your delivery process.
Integration can be complex, but the difficulty is compounded when you cannot see everything that needs to be connected. When you can actually see what’s flowing between systems in a simple, intuitive way, you are well on your way to being able to improve your value stream.
In this webinar learn how to:
For organizations going through Agile and DevOps transformations, quality automation is crucial. Sharing information between tools is no longer a competitive advantage but an essential part of an efficient value stream. Without quality automation, flowing defects, requirements, test cases, and execution results between tools and collaborating teams can be slow, onerous, and susceptible to human error.
In this webinar, Gernot Brandl, Senior Product Manager at Tricentis, and Dr. Tuuli Bell, Partner Account Manager at Tasktop, discuss and demo how quality automation and value stream integration can help organizations with their Agile and DevOps transformations by:
IT organizations are under continual pressure to develop and deliver high-quality applications – at speed - in order to provide key competitive advantage for their company.
Transformation to Agile at scale typically takes 1-3 years. There is a pattern of adoption that most companies go through that achieves initial gains, but tends to stagnate after the initial improvement.
Join Tasktop VP of Industry Strategy, Betty Zakheim, and Net Objectives CEO, Al Shalloway, to learn:
We won’t build your software for you, but we will transform *how* you build it, making your software delivery process better and faster.
Join us to learn how Tasktop allows your disconnected tools to act harmoniously by automating collaboration, traceability, and visibility from ideation to production, enabling your organization to accelerate its business value delivery.
Product Managers Cynthia Mancha and Trevor Bruner do a live demo to show you how Tasktop lets you:
Everyone is talking about improving software delivery using Agile and DevOps. They've had some success - but the secret nobody is talking about is that it's not really working at enterprise scale.
In this webinar, we'll discuss:
The adoption of Agile methods has made it more difficult for PMs to have full visibility into the software development lifecycle. The velocity of change is greater than in the past, and the information they need to get the full picture of status to report to PMOs, business units, and senior management is spread across different systems, often requiring manual collection. This information scavenger hunt makes it extremely difficult and time consuming to present real-time and accurate information.
A successful Agile transformation requires a combination of people, process and technology, but too often these aspects are treated separately. Organizations need an approach that connects the entire application lifecycle with tools that are tightly integrated and automated to support processes.
In this webinar Dave West, CEO and Product Owner of Scrum.org, and Betty Zakheim, VP of Industry Strategy at Tasktop talk about the success of Scrum in the enterprise and techniques that organizations can employ when they have a large IT shop.
Join us for this discussion of the successes and challenges of Scrum at scale, including:
Agile and requirements management aren't exactly a match made in heaven. But, in many industries, there is a practical reality that mandates some successful marriage between true requirements management and Agile. If you are writing surveillances for regulating Wall Street or building the software for a pacemaker or the automated brake system for cars that have to meet standards in different countries, you have to make them work together.
In these cases, you will want to examine three areas to ensure that you can successfully implement requirements management and still operate in a “SAFe” way.
This webinar will examine these three areas and provide guidance to aid in your implementation of SAFe with requirements management.
Transforming your fragmented software development and delivery capability into a highly efficient DevOps machine won’t happen overnight. To deliver customer value faster, you must go on a journey of continuous improvement to connect teams, automate processes and eliminate waste from the value chain. This requires you to:
Learn how our customers are using connected lifecycle data to guide their enterprise DevOps journeys.
Everyone seems to want more software developed and produced faster. Yet simply ramping up the number of individuals able to produce software is not sufficient; it is also important to improve the productivity of the software developers. But, what is software development productivity anyway? When do software developers consider themselves productive? What friction exists in software development that lowers productivity? In this talk, Gail Murphy will discuss recent studies about software development productivity from the eyes of developers and will suggest directions to improve software development productivity based on the daily activities of software developers. This talk includes joint work with T. Fritz (U. Zürich), A. Meyer (U. Zürich) and T. Zimmermann (Microsoft Research).
Artifact Relationship Management (ARM) lets you recreate the structure and hierarchy between your ALM tools; creating order instead of chaos. Have a parent-child relationship on one side? ARM allows you to maintain this parent-child relationship on the other side of your integration. Watch this webinar to learn why maintaining links between your work items across your ecosystem saves you time & money.
