At the heart of the Lifecycle Sleuth is our web-based service, Waste, Opportunities for Improvement, and Risk Engine (WORE), that analyzes the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) of a given application for optimization. The WORE provides real-time analysis based on data driven rules influenced by Agile Principles & Values, Lean Thinking, eXtreme Programming (XP) values and techniques as well as DevOps concepts and practices like Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery / Deployment, Continuous Testing, and Continuous Monitoring.
A Disruptive Approach to Software Delivery
Simply put, the WORE is a revolutionary tool for organizations seeking to adopt a true Agile / DevOps SDLC because it removes much of the judgement and biasness from people responsible to optimize processes. There is no other tool that we are aware of that systemically provides opinions and considerations for SDLC activities as well as those missing or likely sequenced improperly into an actionable plan.
Because of the tools uniqueness, we have loosely coupled the WORE service from the Lifecycle Sleuth so that organizations have an opportunity to exploit it with their own software. To learn about using the WORE service please go to the RESTful API page.
Finally a Tool to Quantify Agile / DevOps SDLC
Currently, the WORE can identify over 500 risks and over 1,000 opportunities for improvement.
Enhancements at No Additional Cost!
As the WORE is completely data driven we continually identify and add logic to auto-identify waste, opportunities for improvement, and risks at no cost to our customers. Another advantage with the WORE is that as new tools, processes, regulations, compliances, etc. are introduced we can accommodate.
