Mobile SDKs (software developments kits); love them or hate them, they're here to stay. They provide our apps with all sorts of functionality that would be incredibly time consuming to build, and they give us another means to monetize our apps. While it would be difficult to argue that SDKs aren’t useful, it’s also hard for developers to get a good idea of the amount of resources used by each SDK once the app is in production ...
Blueprint Software announced the latest release of Storyteller, its planning solution for large-scale agile transformation.
Blueprint’s Storyteller features new capabilities that enable enterprises in highly regulated industries – such as banking, finance, healthcare and pharma – to automate upfront planning activities, align business goals with IT, and support digital transformation.
As regulated enterprises seek to increase speed and drive innovation, they also must comply with complex regulations; modernize legacy applications; and scale Agile and DevOps best practices. These factors constrain development and impose risk. The latest version of Storyteller introduces greater automation before code commit, and enhances enterprise collaboration across a broad range of users, of any skill, throughout an organization.
The new capabilities include:
- Baselines: Manages and measures the progress of products and projects. Users can automatically create permanent, formal records of system states.
- Walkthrough: Visually represents an application’s user experience, through process modeling and mock-ups. This enhances collaboration between business and IT and provides a common understanding of what is being built.
“We work closely with our customers to gain insights into the top challenges they face along their journey to transformation,” says Ruth Zive, VP of Marketing at Blueprint. “By providing a visual and increasingly automated way to drive the success of IT projects, Storyteller helps to fill a gap by not only ensuring business-IT alignment, but priming the pump for Agile and DevOps best practices.”
