Blueprint Case Study

New York Life Insurance Company


This case study of New York Life Insurance Company is based on an August 2017 survey of Blueprint customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“The average projects 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.”

“Centralization of process and rigor, allowing for a level of delivery standardization that our business partners previously were not accustomed to receive.”


This is a list of the business challenges that led the profiled company 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
  • Remove bottlenecks at the front end of the development cycle
  • Manage changes required by the business
  • Stay ahead of regulatory and compliance issues

Challenges Solved

Blueprint solved the following challenges created by using Rally alone:

  • Lack of intuitive, understandable product view to be reviewed with business stakeholders and large development teams
  • Lack of a permanent system of record of what has been delivered
  • Lack of complete documentation of what has been delivered
  • Difficulty for business stakeholders to 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
  • Difficulty managing key business imperatives like compliance and non-functional requirements (such as performance, security, usability)
  • Difficulty tying development and testing efforts back to business objectives


The surveyed company achieved the following results with Blueprint:

  • Completes projects more than 50% faster when using Blueprint.
  • Complete the requirements and user stories of an average project with 41-50% less effort since using Blueprint.
