The Plandek Next Gen Platform

Plandek the rapidly growing SaaS provider of end-to-end software delivery metrics and analytics, announces the release of the Plandek NextGen platform to new and existing customers.

The Plandek NextGen platform cements Plandek’s position as a global leader in the provision of end-to-end software delivery metrics and analytics.  The platform provides a range of capabilities not achievable with competing solutions, to make it the natural choice of enterprises looking to greatly increase visibility across complex, Scaled Agile software delivery environments.

Plandek NextGen works by mining data from toolsets used by delivery teams (such as Azure DevOps, Jira, Git, CI/CD tools and Slack), to provide end-to-end delivery metrics and analytics, to optimise software delivery forecasting, risk management, and process improvement.

Unlike competing solutions, Plandek NextGen solves the problem of “superficially interesting data”.  Instead, it provides actionable insight to enable hard-working software delivery teams to deliver higher quality software at higher velocity.

Plandek NextGen’s differentiating capabilities include:

  • a totally flexible data hierarchy to enable users to customise views to whatever organisational grouping suits, across highly complex Scaled Agile environments
  • deep drill down and filter capability to provide an extremely powerful analytics capability capable of answering specific questions posed by users g. “analyse issue type A, completed by Squad X, in week Y, in swim lane Z
  • configurable metrics offering the ability to define critical metrics in the way you want – e.g. define your own ‘Cycle Time’ to include the stages meaningful to your context
  • complete data transparency so users can see how all metrics and analytics have been calculated to build user trust.

Plandek NextGen underpins Plandek’s proprietary Insight-driven Agile Delivery© (IDAD) framework, used to help clients select metrics and embed them across their delivery environments, to drive continuous improvement.

Dan Lee, Co-CEO of Plandek comments: “Plandek NextGen really is a game-changer.  It offers a depth of functionality for enterprise clients simply not available with any other analytics solutions.”

Will Lytle, Customer Success Director of Plandek adds: “Plandek NextGen is the result of close collaboration with our customers.  It is designed to address the critical use cases that they experience – and so help them deliver software more effectively in the ‘new normal’ world”.
