Quantum Metric recognized in Forrester Value Stream Management Guide

Post by: Christine Tran

This week, Forrester published an overview of 19 Value Stream Management providers, recognizing Quantum Metric as an important platform for application development and delivery professionals.

We love the recognition and appreciate the research that went into this report!

Value Stream Management (VSM) is an emerging software category which Forrester defines as:

Tools that enable users to map, visualize, and govern business value flow (including epics, stories, and work items) from end to end through heterogeneous enterprise software delivery pipelines.

Put another way, Value Stream Management tools help technical teams optimize processes and connect output back to business value.

Quantum was among 19 vendors included in the report, which range from standalone tools to discrete tools like Quantum, that focus on a subset of VSM functionalities like analytics, dashboards, and ROI correlation.

For technical audiences, the benefit of Quantum Metric is twofold: 1) We give engineering, site reliability, and IT ops teams the ability to work within the same platform that their business peers use, and 2) technical owners can connect the work they do back to business impact, e.g. on users, revenue, and other business KPIs.

Some of the things technical audiences love to use in Quantum Metric include:

  • Client-side performance monitoring: prioritized performance opportunities at a page or page group level
  • In-page network tab diagnostics: access to in-page network tab details within sessions for a waterfall view of network performance
  • Resource and page speed details: full breakdown and timings of page and resource speed measurements
