Blueprint Case Study

C Spire

Introduction

This case study of C Spire is based on an August 2017 survey of Blueprint customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“The average project delivered using Blueprint products are much more aligned to our business and market needs.”

“Using Blueprint products has increased the automation of previously manual tasks in our development cycle.”

“Quick, professional generation of documentation from artifacts and a single repository for all project artifacts.”

Objectives

The business challenges that led the profiled company to evaluate and ultimately select Blueprint:

Purchased Blueprint to:

  • Increase maturity and agility of planning and requirements processes
  • Remove bottlenecks at the front end of your development cycle
  • Manage changes required by the business

Challenges Solved

Blueprint solved the following challenges created by using JIRA alone:

  • A lack of having an intuitive, understandable view of products to be delivered that can be reviewed with business stakeholders and large development teams
  • A lack of a permanent system of record of what has been delivered
  • A lack of complete documentation of what has been delivered
  • The difficulty of having business stakeholders understand what is being worked on, and what has been delivered in a sprint
  • Overall time and effort required to manually write and coordinate user stories and test cases

Results

The surveyed company achieved the following results with Blueprint:

  • Completes projects 41-50% faster when using Blueprint.
  • Decreased the number of defects and/or enhancement requests for the average project by more than 50% when using Blueprint.
  • Complete the requirements / user stories of an average project with 41-50% less effort since using Blueprint.

Blueprint Customer Satisfaction Rating

A Risk Manager at a Global 500 insurance company would be very likely to recommend Blueprint for this reason:

Under one application you can find all needed documentation, and depending on your role, various actions can be taken. It takes a bit to get familiar with how to navigate the system and it could be intimidating for a user who is not technical but, at the same time, it walks you through what to do/next steps.
