Building your DevOps toolchain is like creating a manufacturing line: You need the right tools in place for each product to be able to create value for your customers efficiently and effectively. However, having different tools for different teams means they will no longer have visibility into what any other team is doing; this can spell trouble while managing dependencies as you decouple your architecture.
Aligning teams to value streams and implementing value stream management (VSM) solves this problem. With each team aligned to a value stream, VSM brings together disparate tools across value streams into a single platform for complete visibility. This empowers teams to create their own toolchains based on what works best for them while retaining organizational oversight and orchestration of activities to manage dependencies.
In this webinar you will learn:
- How to align teams to value streams
- How to choose toolchains for your pipelines
- How VSM enables tool autonomy through organizational visibility
