Development and engineering organizations can have just a few Jenkins environments or can have dozens to hundreds. Having insights into the performance of the pipeline through those environments is critical.
Organizations are driving to create better products and deliver at a faster pace. This shift impacts all groups in the organization, pushing to be a high-performing one by creating more business value with fewer resources. Teams are adopting new business practices and tools to achieve higher performance and there is difficulty in measuring the quality of software products delivered with zero defects and creating revenue.

Jenkins is an industry known open source continuous integration/deployment tool which helps in the automation of software development through building, testing, and deployment with hundreds of plugin support. It is the most popular open-source continuous integration/deployment tool used in support of DevOps. Jenkins helps an organization to advance the software development process through automation.
What is Value Stream Management?
Value stream management is a practice that allows the organization to track and manage the flow of value from idea to delivery. Value streams continuously deliver value to customers through a series of steps, in order to drive value back to the organization.
Value stream can solve:
- Poor visibility of software delivery processes including lack of real-time performance metrics
- Incorrect metrics and static data measuring delivery capabilities
- End-to-end flow delays resulting from delays and wasted time
Applying value stream management will bring in process and flow improvements, increased management visibility, decreased deployment delays and errors.
Jenkins though provides great CI/CD delivery and automation some features cannot be fulfilled like end-to-end visibility, real-time metrics.
ReleaseIQ product gives complete visibility of the current status of each change in the pipeline, providing clarity of the current state in the workflow and action that has to be taken when a particular stage has failed.
ReleaseIQ team uses its product to develop and deliver changes to customers by helping to deliver well-tested features and improvements. Our teams developed a completely new look UI with work flowing from UX engineer to customer feedback various requirements, implementation, and fixes making every change tracked in the pipeline defined.
The pipeline composer has all the stage options which are used in large organizations covering the most widely used CICD tools and scenarios. The pipeline is a sequence of steps defined as per workflow across multiple teams and various environments including production roll-out providing the current stage of a change.
Each change is tracked giving complete visibility and stakeholders are notified if they have action items to be taken like approving a change or approving deployment to the production environment creating process flow and information flow. Value stream management solutions provide data and metrics that are reliable and one view across the infrastructure in order to report on how the organization’s DevOps performance is progressing.
The dashboard provides accurate data to managers and management executives to track the progress of projects, developers’ contributions, deployments, and more which gives complete visibility into the deliverables.
Value Stream Management for Jenkins Environments
Development and engineering organizations can have just a few Jenkins environments or can have dozens to hundreds. Having insights into the performance of the pipeline through those environments is critical. Value stream management empowers teams to continuously improve their software delivery to be able to deliver more value to their customers being able to incrementally improve product quality and process improvement with every sprint. Executive insights and actionable real-time visibility, value stream management platform deliver data-driven decision making improving business outcomes.
