TechValidate Research on Blueprint


Blueprint Case Study

State & Local Government

Introduction

This case study of a state & local government is based on an August 2017 survey of Blueprint customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. The profiled organization asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.

“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.”

Objectives

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

Purchased Blueprint to:

  • Improve the success of product and application launches
  • Increase business visibility into development plans, designs and progress before the product is released
  • Increase maturity and agility of planning and requirements processes
  • Manage changes required by the business

Challenges Solved

Blueprint solved the following challenges created by using an ALM tool 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
  • The difficulty of tying development and testing efforts back to business objectives

Results

The surveyed organization achieved the following result with Blueprint:

  • Complete the requirements / user stories of an average project with 31-40% less effort since using Blueprint.
