Are you facing these challenges experienced by other tools team leaders?

Planview has helped other tools team leaders overcome these obstacles and drive business growth. We can help you too.

Is a complex, disconnected toolchain slowing down your time to market?

If you said yes, you are not alone. According to Planview’s 2023 Project to Product State of the Industry Report, only 8% of what Agile teams promise actually gets delivered. Before implementing Planview, our customers’ development teams spent hundreds of hours on duplicate data entry, tedious, repetitive tasks, manual rework, and complex handoffs. Their disconnected toolchains contained invisible inefficiencies that slowed down delivery and cost them market opportunities. With Planview, teams can leverage 60+ out-of-the-box no-code connectors to bridge silos and enable smooth collaboration. Model-based integration is scalable and easy to set up. A fully integrated toolchain eliminates duplicate data entry and complicated handoffs, speeding up flow and accelerating time to market.

Planview enables you to easily connect disparate tools and configure the automated flow of information between them.

Learn how BMW deployed Planview to accelerate its Agile transformation and enable its joint venture in China. This endeavor included replicating BMW’s quality processes and protocols, setting up high-performance computing clusters, rolling out relevant software, training local employees, developing new software, and, most importantly, enabling data supply from Germany to run the simulations. With Planview’s help, BMW was able to make their data flow seamlessly between sites and complete the project one year earlier than planned.

Are your top engineers wasting time on handovers, poor quality code, manual data entry, and complicated handoffs?

Most teams feel like they spend too much time on tedious, mundane tasks.  In fact, according to the Automation in the Workplace Report, 59% of respondents say they could save six or more hours a week by automating repetitive aspects of their jobs. Before implementing Planview, many of our customers had inefficient toolchains that required top engineering talent to perform manual, monotonous tasks, resulting in redundant efforts, and immense frustration. Planview connects tools, synchronizes data, and automates handoffs to take low-value work off developers’ plates so they can contribute where it counts most: creating customer value. With Planview in place, tool integration is seamless, and you can immediately see how much time your developers have been able to redirect into innovation and value-generating work.

Free up your teams’ capacity to work on customer-facing initiatives and measure the impact of integration on your business.

Planview’s ability to accelerate integration setup between CGI and clients across the globe resulted in profitability and productivity gains, including over 7,500 days per year of unlocked capacity and a net savings of 1-2 months effort at the start of every project. Real-time synchronization has eliminated common human errors and clients are reporting higher satisfaction levels.

Are you bogged down by weighty governance and audit requirements?

Security incidents, data breaches, and compliance are keeping everyone up at night. In fact, Forbes says that security testing, threat modeling, and governance are becoming embedded earlier and earlier into the software development lifecycle, making it essential to have automated requirements traceability at every level. Without an integration solution, our customers spent countless hours preparing for audits, searching for data in multiple tools, or reconciling out of date, conflicting information. Inefficient, disconnected toolchains made audits and reporting overly complicated. Using Planview, you can create automated traceability across the software delivery toolchain to simplify governance, regulatory requirements, and audits. When a new risk or compliance requirement arises, your teams can maintain agility and quickly incorporate it into their workflows.

At a glance, you can see how data is synchronized across tools to create traceability from requirement to code to test to release.

Learn how Planview allowed Panasonic to replace multiple in-house tools and manual compliance workflows. Planview Hub lets Panasonic comply with the stringent regulations required for automotive components by providing automated traceability from requirements to code. When regulatory requirements changed, Planview Hub allowed Panasonic to operationalize new traceability requirements in less than 30 days and automate status updates across systems.
