To deliver on their digital transformation goals enterprise organizations seek to deploy high quality code, faster and more frequently.

But they face a complexity of organization, process and technology that can hinder this objective, slowing throughput and incurring high error rates.

DevOps Flow is a methodology for implementing high performance, Cloud-centric software development, based on a science developed by pioneers like Toyoto to optimize factory lines and apply this to software engineering, and industry best practices such as The Flow Framework.


People, Process and Technology

Accelerating the rate of software engineering throughput requires addressing a holistic scope encompassing people, process and technologies.


The overall objective of moving to DevOps is to expand an organization’s capacity for Digital Transformation, speeding the delivery of new technology innovations.


The performance of deploying code can be quantified, measured and monitored, with steps taken to increase the throughput rate.


The right technologies and tools empower developers to be more productive and for teams to streamline their collective throughput.

Therefore a whole system DevOps methodology that addresses the organizational level is required, one that maps processes end-to-end and identifies the improvements needed to speed production across the entire software life-cycle.

DevOps Flow addresses this whole scope, providing a methodology for identifying issues and bottlenecks that can be found equally in how teams work and/or how technologies and processes interact.

Adidas use Business Architecture 'Capability Diamonds' to manage the complexity of a microservices architecture.

Enterprise Thought Leaders

DevOps Flow is based on insights from industry thought leader case studies and distilled into a repeatable best practice model, from enterprise pioneers including the US Air Force, Adidas, BUPA,, Deutsche Telekom and Vodafone and many more.

We document best practices through real-world lessons learned, supported by a regular schedule of tutorials, product news and peer networking webinars.

To achieve their goal of becoming the leading Digital Telco Deutsche Telekom undertook a challenge to modernize from monolithic legacy IT to a culture of agile DevOps.

Organizational models and process improvements for increasing DevOps capacity and quality.

Flow Recipes

Permutations of DevOps tools combined in a particular way to achieve a high velocity throughput.

Expert Practices

Multi-discipline teams can be rapidly assembled to address a diverse range of projects.

Value Stream Mapping

Chart and understand the critical steps in a specific process, quantifying the time and volume taken at each stage, to identify key constraints like slow hand-off interactions.

Flow Metrics

Performance can be optimized through Flow Metrics, measurements to model the entire system – end-to-end – to understand how value flows and where it is constrained.
