What is DevOps?

DevOps is the union of people, process, and technology to continually provide value to customers. DevOps breaks down the traditional silos to bring products to customers better and faster.

Why DevOps?

Increased developer productivity

Reduce cycle time

Faster time to market

Improved system stability and reliability

The DevOps Lifecycle


Teams define and describe their work using product backlogs, Kanban boards, and dashboards. Making work visible is a key element and measuring lead time and cycle time can provide great insights into the velocity of work.


The process of deploying to production. High-value results are driven by automating this process which makes it scalable, repeatable, and efficient. Lead times are greatly reduced and time to market improves.


Code is developed, along with all the testing and reviews that take place. Using automation and DevOps platforms, innovation can happen with both speed and quality. Continuous integration and automated testing are essential to the process.


Systems are actively monitored for issues, performance, and improvement opportunities. Teams seek to identify and troubleshoot issues before they happen and mitigate quickly. Rich alerting mechanisms are in place to ensure response times remain low. Improvements are cycled back into the product backlog for prioritization and execution.

Your DevOps Jouney

There are a lot of elements that go into a full DevOps ecosystem, and it can be overwhelming. No matter where you are in your DevOps journey, we’re here to help.

What is VSM?

Value Stream Management is the next generation of DevOps. It is a way of working that seeks to organize, map, measure, manage, improve, govern, and accelerate the flow of measurable value to the customer.
While delivering value has always been at the heart of the DevOps movement, VSM allows organizations to center around the products and services they offer and ultimately the value they deliver to their customers.

Why VSM?

Measure and visualize flow from idea to production

Gain insights into how to accelerate flow

Collaborate on the end-to-end product / service lifecycle

Satisfy customer demand for value outcomes at optimal speed

The VSM Roadmap


Set the vision and goals of what you want to accomplish.


Identify the value streams in your environment. A value stream delivers a product or service and always has a customer at the end.


Organize the people responsible for every step in the value stream. If your organization is functionally siloed, there are very good chances this will span many different areas.


Map the end-to-end process from idea to production. Determine touch time and wait time to understand total cycle time. This mapping exercise is critical to understanding the current state of value flow.


Connect your value streams to your DevOps and VSM platforms to produce real, measurable insights on flow velocity, time, efficiency, load, and distribution.

Inspect and Adapt

Using the data and learnings from the value stream maps, work to continually optimize the flow of value to your customers.









Your VSM Jouney

Think about the area you lead or work in. What are the products/services it provides? Who are its customers? What value do your customers receive from those products/services? How long does it take for value to be delivered? Where are the bottlenecks?
If you have a hard time answering these questions, we’re here to help. We help organizations understand VSM as it relates to their industry and help implement it properly.
