ConnectALL Is Named DevOps Dozen Finalist in the Value Stream Management Category
The award recognizes the value stream management tool that most effectively helps visualize the value stream, track metrics and measure improvement
ATLANTA, Dec. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ConnectALL, a leading provider of value stream management (VSM) solutions, today announced it has been named to the list of finalists for the DevOps Dozen Value Stream Management category. Only five firms were so honored.
This award comes on the heels of a strong year of rapid growth for ConnectALL, with 21 code releases and the debut of several adapters and enhancements, including the Universal Adapter, the Value Stream Visualizer, and Value Stream Insights and Analytics. The firm was also honored with recognition by vendors, analysts and industry peers.
“Being a DevOps Dozen finalist further confirms we are meeting our goal of providing a robust framework to give business leaders and their teams visibility into, and metrics-based reporting about, their value stream and related activities,” said ConnectALL COO Lance Knight. “It caps off a year in which we made a significant pivot and executed a strategic plan to accelerate our products and services into the future. While many other technology firms merely survived 2020, we thrived.”
Achieving a Pinnacle of Acclaim

A Year of Momentous Initiatives
ConnectALL’s development activity included new solutions and tools as well as significant software releases/enhancements, making the firm a standout among its peers.
New User Interface
In June, ConnectALL debuted a brand-new, more efficient interface that offered a streamlined navigation bar, a new visual layout, a new dashboard page, an Activity Monitor with a snapshot of real-time synchronization activity, and more.
Value Stream Visualizer
In April, ConnectALL revealed the Value Stream Visualizer. This powerful visualization tool generates an interactive diagram that traces the path of each integration mapped within ConnectALL, as well as additional elements and connections – such as manual steps, paper/physical artifacts, customers, and suppliers – to fully map and provide real-time visibility of the entire software value stream.
Value Stream Insights and Analytics
In November, ConnectALL announced support for Value Stream Insights and Analytics, which provided support for flow metrics and more. Value Stream Insights is a customizable, packaged framework of metrics, analytics, and visualizations designed accelerate the flow of business value throughout the software value stream. Value Stream Analytics is a vast collection of metrics visualizations that completely map the complex feedback loops generated by value stream activities. This extensive solution also included the Insights Adapter and Insights Data Model (released in September) as well as the availability of expert support services.
This fall marked the release of the Insights Adapter, which creates and populates the Insights Data Model for the purposes of the various dashboards in Insights Analytics. (The Insights Data Model stores important data items needed for the metrics dashboard.)
Earlier in the year, ConnectALL’s Universal Adapter reached patent pending status. The Universal Adapter enables bi-directional synchronization of information, automation of release-cycle triggers and comprehensive data capture and reporting between an infinite number of software tools.
“Even though 2020 was whirlwind year for us, it was truly exhilarating,” said Knight. “We look forward to leading the field in value stream management through continued innovation and excellence.”
