In this webinar hosted by Software Test Professionals, Tasktop Sr. Solutions Architect, Matt Angerer, will discuss the fundamentals to calculating how effective your team is at finding bugs in your software. Using ServiceNow and Micro Focus ALM to demonstrate, he’ll show you how to automate the flow of information between your ALM and ITSM tools to monitor DDP in real time.
Mastering large-scale software delivery will define the economic landscape of the 21st century, just as the mastery of mass production defined the landscape in the 20th. Unfortunately, business and technology leaders are woefully ill-equipped for the Age of Software because they are using management paradigms from past technological revolutions. While technologists adopting DevOps and Agile have already made the transition, the gap between modern technical practices and the business has only widened in the process. A new approach is needed.
During this webinar hosted by SD Times, Dr. Mik Kersten will present the Flow FrameworkTM – a new approach to software delivery spanning the language of the business with the language of technology and enables the transition from project to product.
To visualize and optimize the business value of your software delivery, you need to find a way to measure business outcomes. To do that, we need flow metrics. During this webinar, Dominica DeGrandis presents five key flow metrics that reveal trends on desirable business outcomes – such as faster time-to-market, responsiveness to customers, and predictable release timeframes – and explains how to implement them to measure and improve the impact and value of software products on your business.
Agile has provided a framework for shortening iterations and adapting to ever changing requirements. DevOps established practices for automating the software delivery pipeline. While these methods are becoming standard practices in building software, scaling these concepts is problematic. That’s where Value Stream Management (VSM) comes in.

First it was RTC. Now it’s Jira. The truth is, you can’t migrate all the specialist stages of enterprise software into one tool. Plugging too much workflow into Jira (or any one system) will undo its productivity benefits and undermine the effectiveness your end-to-end software delivery value stream.

Using ServiceNow and Micro Focus ALM to demonstrate, we’ll show you how to automate the flow of information between your ALM and ITSM tools to monitor DDP in real time. Synchronizing incidents to your defect tracking tool is imperative if you want to perform root cause analysis to identify what regression test case “should have” trapped the defect during your last round of regression testing and trace it back. Learn how this integration allows you to:
To check on the health of your processes you need to be constantly tuned into your source code, artifact management, continuous integration, delivery and deployment, static code analysis, security analysis, monitoring health, infrastructure, and test automation, just to name a few. In addition to monitoring the health of your release pipeline, you also need big picture metrics that can measure the value you are delivering to the business and highlight where your current bottlenecks are.

Inspired by Matt Angerer’s trials and tribulations as a Program Testing Consultant, watch this presentation for a no-nonsense action-packed roadmap to understanding how VSI can revolutionize how you deliver and protect software quality for lasting results.
Agile and DevOps are about delivering value to the customer and for the business. However, if your teams are wasting time on non-value-added work, such as manual entry from one tool to another, then you’re not being Agile, nor properly practicing DevOps. Watch our webinar with partner, ReleaseTEAM, to find out how your organization can deliver on the promise of Agile and DevOps.
Mind the Gap: Bridging the Divide Between the Business and Agile/DevOps Teams with Value Stream Management
Software delivery organizations have transformed the way they develop and deliver software, adopting Agile and DevOps practices to help them achieve ambitious business targets. But as more teams see success with these methods, they’re finding that there’s a disconnect keeping them from reaching their full potential.
Watch as featured guest Chris Condo, Sr. Analyst at Forrester discusses findings from their recent research on value stream management and how organizations are bridging the gap between the business and their Agile and DevOps teams to maintain their competitive edge.
Increasingly, DevOps is encouraging organizations to think holistically about the value streams of delivery. Make work visible and look to reduce waste. But agile and Scrum has taught us that complex problems require teams to self-organize, to 'scrum' to make progress. Does that mean that the value streams are continually changing? Does that mean that when you introduce value streams you remove the ability of the Scrum team to self-organize?
In this talk, Dave West Product Owner and CEO of Scrum.org and Mik Kersten CEO of Tasktop discuss the challenges of introducing value streams to a Scrum world and how you can balance flexibility with the structure to enable better flow and deliver more value to customers. They will discuss how to avoid Value-Waterfall-Stream to make sure your stream doesn't become a waterfall and provide a list of potential warning signs for when the process of value streams has become a way of re-introducing traditional waterfall thinking to your product delivery process.
The increased collaboration required by DevOps can sometimes bring an unwelcome guest: meetings. An exchange of mutually critical information is essential, but a day crammed with back-to-back meetings results in time theft. Are you losing precious time trapped in meeting misery? Dashing from meeting to meeting allows sparse time for people to finish important work and contributes to low employee satisfaction and poor performance. Getting buy-in to change meeting madness is tricky – but it can be done!
In this webinar, Dominica addresses the too-many-meetings problem and provides actionable takeaways to help you optimize your time. Come learn how to influence the boss and get buy-in to improve your team’s capacity to get real work done.
In an analysis of over 300 software delivery organizations we found that high performing IT organizations realize the value of end-to-end process automation beyond the CI/CD pipeline.
Join us to learn:
We’ll share the results of an analysis of 1,000 tool integrations, including how IT organizations are putting in place sophisticated integration infrastructure layer to automate the flow of work from ideation to production.
By enforcing one specific methodology or tool across teams, organizations hinder their ability to deliver customer value. In this webinar, Steve Adolph, addresses the challenges organizations face when adopting Lean and Agile methodologies and presents a three-element model that enables organizations to create a consistent and flexible culture that motivates practitioners to embrace change for faster delivery of business value.
Join Gene Kim and Mik Kersten as they discuss their favorite talks from DevOps Enterprise Summit 2017 and the ways we’ll see the DevOps movement grow in 2018.
Hear how the focus on value stream thinking, the dismantling of the monolith and transformational leadership are shaping the future of DevOps as it permeates throughout the enterprise.
Lean practices for software delivery are critical to digital transformation and innovation, and the failure to execute on them opens the door to disruption. Software investment and staffing decisions are made anecdotally, using static and stale slivers of data. But what if we could take an fMRI (Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging) of the organization and see the flow of business value in real-time? See evidence of bottlenecks and use them to prioritize IT investment? Join us as we introduce the concept of Value Stream Networks and explain how to create a modular framework enabling end-to-end business value flow, at any scale.
Global leaders from all major industries, especially automotive, require many different teams, departments, and suppliers to develop software products at scale. Not only is there a dizzying combination of companies working on any given project at the same time, but also a complicated mix of toolchains and infrastructures that inhibit effective collaboration. In this webinar, we'll discuss how your organization can boost collaboration between teams, minimize budget and time waste, and ensure fast delivery of high quality software by:

Watch this webinar to explore how to make Testing the hub of organizational quality. You’ll learn integration strategies that accelerate testing, increase team productivity, and optimize decision-making across the DevOps pipeline by:
From Dev to Ops, all teams within an IT organization should be working towards the same goal -- fast delivery of value to the customer -- and the benefits of Agile can help them get there. But this is not possible with a disconnected toolchain. Agile must impact the whole end-to-end workflow. In this webinar with Leankit, we'll discuss how your organization can enable scaled Agile success by:
Test and build automation are important pieces of your DevOps toolchain, but these tools need to be integrated with your issue trackers and test management in order to optimize your software delivery. Join us for this 30 minute webinar demonstrating how to
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:
They’ve adopted Agile and DevOps practices. But particularly for large organizations with complex application portfolios or compliance pressures, these practices have yet to fulfill the promise of enhancing an organization’s ability to continually deliver customer value. Agile has improved development and test; and DevOps has streamlined getting code into production. But these advances have been localized improvements; to get to the next step software delivery leaders must take a more holistic approach to improving the entire lifecycle.
In this webinar guest speaker, Forrester Senior Analyst Christopher Condo will present his analysis of practices used in modern application delivery and will describe how creating an integrated value stream can help organizations regain their focus on the delivery of customer value.
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:
