Launch of new Plandek SmartDelivery: your ‘Virtual Scrum Master’ to hit Sprint and Epic goals

Reaching your sprint and epic goals just got that bit easier with the launch of Plandek SmartDelivery – a virtual Scrum Master, for as little as £49.99 per month.

Today marks an exciting new chapter in Plandek’s journey, as we launch our brand new product, Plandek SmartDelivery. Working like a Virtual Scrum Master, SmartDelivery’s AI examines teams’ ticket history to identify anomalies and present ‘Action items’ that are potential blockers, including:

  • Ticket stalling: when tickets appear to stall at any point throughout the delivery process or exceed standard Cycle Times and require immediate action by the team 
  • Resource focus: identify carried over work; added work; and distractions outside the sprint/epic  
  • Development complexity: commit size/count, files changed and other parameters exceed the norm for tickets of similar size and complexity 
  • Pull request anomalies: when pull requests stall or indicate a higher than normal level of activity, suggesting a team is struggling to merge 
  • Build event anomalies: when the builds containing the related tickets fail or succeed 
  • Deployment anomalies: when tickets are deployed, or if the deployment failed and requires action. 

Plandek SmartDelivery gives users a real-time view across the end-to-end delivery process, combining data from Jira, code repos and CI/CD tools, to enable engineering teams to identify and remediate blockers across the entire SDLC.

As a result, SmartDelivery’s algorithms will spot risks and blockers that are often missed by busy teams, making the delivery of sprint and epic goals that bit easier. 

Plandek SmartDelivery is ideal for engineering teams of all sizes and prices start from just £49.99 per month for connection to one Jira Board, with unlimited repos. This includes: 

  • Data history and retention for up to 60 days 
  • Data connections to JIRA, GitLab, Github and Bitbucket 
  • Super-easy set-up with your own data connections, for immediate access to insights
