Doing anything at enterprise scale call brings with it a whole new set of requirements. With potentially thousands of requirements across hundreds of applications and releases, it can be a daunting challenge to pull together all the DevOps activities across a large enterprise. This has given rise to the new term Value Stream Management (VSM.)
Like Salesforce for managing the sales pipeline, Value Stream Management is about IT seeing across all its initiatives, teams and projects. Are high-value requirements making it into production systems? Is DevOps making the expected impact at enterprise scale? Are VSM tools well integrated into the DevOps toolchain or are teams slowed by extra or unnecessary work. You must keep a handle on it all but we don’t want the medicine to be worse than the disease.
In this episode of DevOps Chat, we explore VSM with our guest Bob Davis, CMO at Plutora. Plutora tackles the VSM challenge at some of the largest banks, financial institutions, telecom and mobile carriers, insurance, hotels, and Internet technology companies.
