Improve efficiency and speed up time to market

with Planview Viz (formerly Tasktop Viz) value stream analytics software

Planview Viz enables CIOs, transformation and agility executives, and engineering and product leaders to measure value streams, uncover bottlenecks, and address dependencies in software delivery to become more efficient, predictable, and profitable.

Planview Viz provides value stream management analytics to help business, technology, and transformation leaders get to the root cause of:

  • Missed commitments and unpredictable delivery
  • Disappointing transformation results with low ROI
  • Inefficient development processes with poorly managed dependencies

  • Long lead times that impact financial performance
  • Overloaded and disengaged teams

Planview Viz features

  • Measure end-to-end value delivery from idea to outcome using Flow Metrics. The Flow Framework® connects all the activities of a value stream and translates them into a common language for both business and IT.

    • Un-Siloed Metrics

      For the first time, get a bird’s eye view of teams, tools, and departments. Understand how value flows, where it is constrained, and most importantly, correlate those metrics with business outcomes.

    • Rich Out-of-the-Box Dashboards

      Get meaningful visibility quickly with pre-configured dashboards that implement the Flow Framework®. No customization, no time lost.

    • Flow Time

      Measure how quickly value is delivered. Start the clock when work is committed and measure flow through all active and wait states, until customer delivery.

    • Flow Efficiency®

      Identify bottlenecks and dependencies by measuring the ratio of wait times in the end-to-end process.

    • Flow Velocity®

      Measure and trend throughput over time to determine if value delivery is accelerating, decelerating, or staying constant.

    • Flow Load®

      Monitor over and under-utilization of value streams, which can lead to reduced productivity. Flow Load helps balance demand with capacity.

    • Flow Distribution®

      Ensure a healthy distribution of work profiles: features, defects, debt, and risk. Prioritize specific types of work based on business priorities.

  • Make better investment decisions using data from all the teams and tools in your portfolio.

    • Portfolio View

      A single dashboard conveys a snapshot of your group, portfolio, or product line. Quickly identify high performers and those requiring attention in terms of agility, speed, and product health.

    • Project to Product Metrics

      Get instant visibility into the progress of the organization’s shift from project to product-based IT and identify how you’re executing against plans.

    • Business-Agility Metrics

      Identify where product teams are ‘doing agile’ but not ‘being agile’ and where the ability to respond faster to the market is at risk.

    • Dependency Insights

      Home in on value streams that might slow down overall delivery and jump in to proactively mitigate the risk.

    • Capacity Insights

      Prevent untenable workloads and unrealistic commitments. Understand when value streams will have the capacity for new work.

  • Manage your digital transformation with real-time analytics that incorporate tools and data from every step of the software delivery lifecycle: ideation, creation, release, and operation.

    • Neglected WIP Insights

      Spot overcommitted teams who have limited capacity. Surface leading indicators that will help you address excess WIP in your value streams.

    • Bottleneck Detection

      See exactly where and when your work is getting stuck and iteratively experiment to solve systemic issues like a lack of automation or resources.

    • Timeline Events

      Insert a timeline into your Flow Metrics to understand how changes to teams and processes impact Flow Metrics and business results.

    • Product Lifecycle Insights

      Compare the work being completed in your value stream to healthy Flow Distribution targets for products at any lifecycle stage, from Incubation to Maturity.

    • Digitally Rendered Value Stream Maps

      Your data builds a live value stream map of the workflow sequence, highlighting new, active, waiting, and done states overlaid with the relative time spent in each state.

  • Let people close to the work create, maintain, and adjust value stream configuration with point-and-click modeling.

    • Modeling at the Edge

      Point-and-click modeling lets subject matter experts quickly create accurate product value streams without dependencies on niche technical expertise or consultants.

    • Smart Modeling

      Smart modeling automates workflow mapping to the four flow states (new, active, waiting, done), so you can get to metrics faster. Users can fine-tune the auto-modeled data to accommodate nuance and context.

    • Support for Hybrid Organizations

      Create value streams that reflect your organization’s realities as you transition from project to product.

    • Flexible Workflow Modeling

      Configure workflows that reflect your organization’s technical ecosystem and shape complex value streams across teams and projects.

    • Common Data Model

      Define your own view of artifacts and model relationships across tools. Create conditions with metadata and easily update models as new states and processes emerge.

  • A purpose-built data, analytics and synchronization platform built on a massive proactive testing suite maximizes data fidelity and ensures your enterprise toolchain remains stable.
