Make data-driven investment decisions
Use data to make smarter decisions about where to invest and where to cut. With a window into the entire value stream, you can see exactly where different investment strategies will make a difference. With Tasktop Viz you can:
- Find system bottlenecks by analyzing data from ideation to production, know precisely where more resources will make a difference.
- Show reports the business can understand and facilitate more productive conversations.
- Connect software development work to business results, and show the ROI of transformation decisions.
- See where you might need to make tradeoffs, easily show that if feature velocity is slowing down and defect distribution is going up, and there’s no debt work being done, you’re headed for a product death spiral.
Tasktop Viz Capabilities
Leverage a single set of actionable metrics that can be understood by technology and business leaders. Get rid of the complexity that stems from too many metrics that no one understands.
Get a roll-up view of individual product value streams, providing insights into their performance, quality, value and impact. See which products are capable of rapid market response and which product teams need more help and attention.
Tasktop Viz plugs into your existing toolchain and allows you to create baseline metrics within days. Where data lakes and DIY solutions can take 12-18 months to set up, with Tasktop Viz you can build your dashboards in a few easy clicks.
Start speaking the language of the business, and get rid of confusing metrics like t-shirt sizes, story points and burndown charts. Tasktop Viz focuses on the types of work people will ‘pay for’ - features, defects, risks and debt, and combines them with business results - value, cost, quality and happiness.
By analyzing data from ideation to production, Tasktop Viz finds your system bottlenecks. Users can investigate and probe bottlenecks by drilling down on individual artifacts contributing to or being impacted by the constraint.
Flow Metrics and business results timelines can be decorated with meaningful business events such as changes to headcount, process, workflow, mergers and acquisitions, strategy pivots and more.
Tasktop Viz creates a live value stream visualization of your software portfolio so you can replace one-off value stream mapping activities with continuous Flow Metrics auto-generated directly from the tools themselves.
Large scale software delivery is complex, making it hard to align data with product lines. Tasktop Viz uses modeling to untangle that web and carve out the relevant data subset from each tool and abstract it into clear, crisp and consistent Flow Metrics.
Establish governance over what to measure and how to measure it, provide a clear unified approach to improving quality and velocity, and govern IT’s shift from a project operating model to a product orientation.
