Over 1,000 IT leaders and professions gathered for a diverse slate of technology and professional practice sessions this week at BA World Toronto, May 27-30, 2019. Blueprint’s Chris Castle explored how defining your technology value stream helps ensure you deliver the right solution.
Traditionally, technology companies delivered products and enterprises delivered projects. From Blueprint’s perspective, enterprises have begun to embrace product-centric methods to reduce risk and time to value in technology delivery. The key lies in value stream mapping, a practice supported by Blueprint’s flagship product, Storyteller. Storyteller helps users visualize the process to help ensure you optimize the whole process, not just part of it. As an integrated tool in the delivery process for a value stream, it will help users automate and understand the effectiveness of their delivery teams.
Blueprint has a good grasp of how product delivery practices need to include visualization of how technology enables the business value stream. After all, there is no such thing as a process that isn’t enabled by technology. Storyteller provides features that enable you to visualize how technology supports your processes. However, the funding, business functionality, and technology is only the foundation for a value stream. Product leaders need to understand how the services required to operate the product ensure it delivers the expected benefits as well. We see our members embracing delivery models that integrate technology in the value stream with the services required to operate and ensure they realize the business and human benefits they expected.
