Pluralsight Flow Expands Visibility Into Engineering Workflows With New Delivery Module Tool
Oct 14, 2020
SILICON SLOPES, Utah — Pluralsight, Inc. (NASDAQ: PS), the enterprise technology skills platform, today announced the introduction of Delivery Module for Pluralsight Flow, a new tool designed to help engineering teams proactively overcome roadblocks in the software development process and identify improvements to deliver greater value and improve time-to-market. Pluralsight Flow’s Delivery Module is the first tool of its kind to use data from Jira to measure the human interactions that occur during the software development process, so teams can understand how they’re progressing against their goals and identify opportunities to optimize collaboration and their workflow.
“Engineering teams need increased data and visibility into their workflows. Pluralsight Flow delivers these necessary insights, allowing engineers and leaders to see data on the constraints facing their teams and identify how they can best address them. Conversations and efforts can focus on where it matters most, helping teams make changes with real impact,” said Kathryn Murphy, EVP, Pluralsight Flow.
The Delivery Module offers a number of new features to help engineering teams use data to build team health and accelerate the development process:
Jira Integration - For the first time, Flow is now fully integrated with Jira and provides ticket-based analytics configurable to each team’s unique workflow. This integration gives teams the metrics about how Jira tickets move through their workflows, providing insights into where the time is being spent and where there are breakdowns in the workflow.
Retrospective Report - This new analytics dashboard aggregates metrics based on activity levels, ticket movement and flow efficiency from their recent engineering cycles to help engineering teams identify opportunities to improve their processes. In addition, the dashboard allows engineers and leaders to quickly compare the distribution of work (like bugs vs. new features) against expectations in order to align efforts to priorities.
Ticket Log - This report shows a team’s tickets alongside metrics like cycle time, backflow rate, queue time, and activity level so they can spot the high-activity or stagnant tickets so they can address issues earlier in the software development lifecycle. As a result, scrum masters, team leaders, and team members can see where the team is spending time and spot tickets that need the most attention.
Together, these new capabilities for engineering teams complement Pluralsight Flow’s software development and code review analytics to help teams unlock opportunities into their workflow, build strong teams, and deliver value to customers.
“Good leaders solve roadblocks and inefficiencies to empower their people. Pluralsight Flow’s Delivery Module broadens the view of the context landscape in a powerful way so we know where we need to focus to improve our workflow,” said Bruce Arnett, SVP, Engineering, PlanSource.
