IT toolstacks keep growing, with specialized tools that improve the efficiency of the business analysts, developers, testers, and service desk reps involved in the software delivery value stream. The problem is: NOTHING IS FLOWING! Tasktop was no exception. We struggled with the lack of visibility, communication bottlenecks, inefficiencies and waste created by a disconnected toolchain. In this webinar, we’ll describe the problems we faced and how we’ve solved them with relative ease through automation across our value stream.
