If software matters, the efficiency of software delivery matters

Delivering software and services at the speed the market demands requires teams to iterate and experiment rapidly. They must deploy new versions frequently, driven by feedback and data. The most successful development teams optimize efficiency by adopting a modern platform engineering culture and practices, embracing automation and value stream management, and assembling toolchains from best-in-class tools to unleash their productivity.

Help developers stay creative and become more efficient by adopting automation, allowing them to deliver software more frequently.

Developers want more automation (2:24)
Ensure DevOps automation value

DevOps automation should add value and give access to the software delivery value flow data to all stakeholders. Efficiency depends on automation technology and an executive culture willing to invest in improving efficiency.

Maturing software delivery is a journey that requires data (2:45)
Measure the flow of value through your DevOps lifecycle

Efficiency blockers in DevOps are impacted by processes, skills, manual intervention, change requests, environment setup, tool usage and decisions. Close theloop in each phase of the application lifecycle through visibility, collaboration and observability of the flow assets.


Most DevOps toolchains are perceived as being inefficient (2:28)
Reduce your carbon footprint

Modern businesses are trying to balance what they can do to reduce their impact on the planet with their need to continuously develop, deliver and run software solutions.

Organizations are ready to minimize the environmental impact of software delivery (1:25)
Test efficiently and effectively

Find defects and calculate the change failure rate or the mean time to detecting and resolving issues. How your team performs against these metrics shows how efficiently problems are being fixed. Minimize the impact of testing and quality problems on the overall software release by visualizing activity metrics in the value flow, highlighting both quality and speed.

Quality is an essential part of the software delivery experience (2:40)
Move to data-driven DevOps

Understand your current level of DevOps automation maturity and potential in order to plan your journey to high-performing, continuous delivery of reliable and secure software. Speed digital transformations and improve return on investment (ROI) on DevOps automation tools.

Teams want help to identify efficiency blockers (1:52)
Use cases Plan

Achieve efficient planning, change and issue management with low-code or no-code workflow automation. Customize and enforce consistent development processes and consolidate data across projects and programs. Increase productivity with notifications and alerts for stakeholders when action is required.
