Broadcom Announces Industry-First Value Stream Management Solution

by: Jean Louis Vignaud

Do you know how you’re funding key investments and how resource allocation affects business objectives? Unless your answer is a definitive “yes,” ValueOps from Broadcom can help. This post reveals how ValueOps puts the “value” into value stream management by delivering a single, integrated platform that unites business and IT.

As leaders of large enterprises look to meet their most critical imperatives, Agile and DevOps practices will remain crucial, but they won’t be enough.

While with DevOps, teams can break down silos, speed delivery, and reduce risk, teams will also need to ensure that what they’re doing ultimately aligns with strategic business outcomes. That’s where value stream management (VSM) has emerged as a critical requirement for enterprise-wide success.

Through effective VSM, teams can make continuous strides in increasing customer value and eliminating investment waste. To accomplish this, businesses need to move from focusing on optimizing separate tools, teams, and departments, and start optimizing the flow of products and services through entire value streams. These streams flow horizontally, across tools, teams, and departments—and for many organizations, that reality presents significant challenges.

Our ValueOps solution was designed to solve these challenges. With this solution, businesses can implement and manage an effective, efficient VSM strategy that enables teams to establish the internal horizontal alignment required. ValueOps seamlessly combines the proven investment planning features of Clarity™, with the advanced Agile management capabilities of Rally®—all in one integrated, easy-to-use, and flexible platform.

With ValueOps from Broadcom, executives can more effectively understand priorities, capacity, progress, and results within their organizations. The ValueOps solution enables every role within an enterprise to manage, track, and analyze unified value streams with a consistent value orientation and methodology.

The solution represents a major leap forward for both business and technical leaders. Following is more information on how the solution helps each of these key stakeholders.
