Tasktop Again Named Leader in Value Stream Management
Tasktop's Radar rankings included the highest scores possible for value-based measurement, value stream portfolios, decision dashboards and flexibility/usability among others, as well as overall ROI/TCO. Only two companies-Tasktop and IBM (News - Alert)-occupy the Leader's circle.
Tasktop's use of real-time dashboard/roll-ups that show Flow Metrics and business results for each product portfolio, measuring end-to-end flow and identifying where work is slowing down, is highlighted in the company's profile.
According to Jon Collins, analyst with GigaOm and author of the report, "The tool can map people to value streams, enabling decision makers to improve flow velocity and time to market, and it offers a comparative view of value streams, which is useful fo prioritizing and rebalancing investments."
Software delivery has long been riddled with too many metrics and not enough results that tie back to the business. By focusing on five simple and understandable Flow Metrics in its VSM platform, Tasktop provides business and technical leaders a common vocabulary and a scorecard by which to measure the effectiveness of their software delivery. Tasktop's value stream management platform sits above the entire software delivery toolchain, integrating all the underlying tools, objectively measuring flow and identifying the biggest bottlenecks in the delivery value stream. This view of the way an organization delivers value via its software allows the organization to implement changes to reduce or eliminate those bottlenecks, improving the efficiency and speed of its software delivery.
"Being named the leader in GigaOm's VSM Radar Report, coming on the heels of the recognition of our leadership position in both the Forrester Wave for VSM and Research in Action's Vendor Matrix, validates what our customers already know: Tasktop's value stream analytics provide immediate and quantifiable improvements to the process of delivering software from ideation through delivery," said Neelan Choksi, president and COO of Tasktop. "Business and IT leaders can make better decisions based on accurate, up-to-date metrics while having the flexibility to create a best-of-breed toolchain with seamless workflows that maximize efficiency."
Tasktop has enabled numerous traditional enterprises across sectors such as telecom, healthcare, automotive and finance to deliver great customer experience through smart and efficient software delivery.
