Plandek provides the metrics and analytics to improve R&D ROI within portcos

The Plandek analytics platform is used widely by portco CTOs to increase the productivity of their delivery teams and accelerate the delivery of value to their customers.

  • CTOs use Plandek to better understand the end-to-end software delivery process and build a world-class delivery capability
  • Plandek answers two key questions for the CTO: is our technology resource correctly focused on our strategic priorities? And if so, are we delivering as efficiently as possible? If the answer two both questions is ‘yes’ – then we are optimising R&D ROI
  • Plandek’s highly customisable dashboards and metrics are adopted across the delivery organisation from the teams upwards, to drive productivity and accelerate value delivery
  • Plandek is super-easy to install and plugs seamlessly into existing DevOps toolsets​
