The 2021 State of DevOps Report is out and the news is troubling. A majority of organizations are stuck in their DevOps evolution, languishing at a middle level of DevOps capabilities for years. There are multiple causes for DevOps stagnation, including legacy architecture, organizational resistance to change and limited automation. However, each of these can be overcome by taking a different approach to navigating your digital transformation pathway.
Value Stream Management (VSM) helps organizations overcome these barriers to advancing their DevOps capabilities. VSM is rapidly gaining adoption across industries because of its success in helping organizations break through the software delivery patterns that have held them back. By bringing together digital value streams from idea to realization into a single source of truth, VSM delivers the visibility organizations need to make informed decisions that improve their software delivery.
In this webinar you will learn:
- The causes of the DevOps plateau
- Why VSM is the next evolution of Agile and DevOps
- How VSM helps organizations rapidly advance their DevOps capabilities
