Software development should always aim to maximize customer or business value delivery—but how do you identify inefficiencies in that delivery, and how can you course-correct value when you do? GitLab’s Value Stream Management helps businesses visualize their end-to-end DevOps workstream, identify and target waste and inefficiencies, and take action to optimize those workstreams to deliver the highest possible velocity of value.
In The Future of DevOps Toolchains Will Involve Maximizing Flow in IT Value Streams,” Gartner recommended that "infrastructure and operations leaders responsible for selecting and deploying DevOps toolchains should: drive business ability by using DevOps value stream delivery platforms that reduce the overhead of managing complex toolchains."1 By providing an [entire DevOps platform](/solutions/devops-platform/) as a single application, GitLab is uniquely suited to provide end-to-end visibility throughout the entire lifecycle without the “toolchain tax.” As the place where work happens, GitLab can also unite visualization with action, allowing users to jump from learning to doing at any time, without losing context.
