Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) Podcast, Episode 63: Value Stream Mapping and DevOps

This morning on Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) podcast, we discussed how Value Stream Mapping helps organizations streamline their DevOps adoption — accelerating releases, optimize their pipelines and toolchains, and even transforms their culture.

In the IT value stream, success is all about the left-to-right flow of value to the customer — from development to IT Operations.

  • When starting out on your DevOps journey: How can Value Stream Mapping help your DevOps transformation be successful?
  • When it’s time to grow: How can it be used to scale DevOps across the organization?

DevOps and Continuous Delivery Effect at Urban Science

On another great talk at DOES16, Marc Priolo from Urban Science – who participated in today’s #c9d9 – shared how they used Value Stream Mapping and pipeline modeling to consolidate their processes and release pipelines, in order to create a centralized, on-demand, self-service Pipeline Solutions Catalog.

This initiative resulted in exceptional improvements at Urban Science – across release cadence, number of deployments, and a staggering amount of manual work hours that have been avoided, and could now be put to better use.
