Kanbanize Enables Instana To Accelerate Growth And Improve Value Delivery Across Distributed Engineering Teams

Sofia, Bulgaria, November 12, 2020 – Kanbanize, a digital Kanban platform solution for Agile project management, and Instana, a leading provider of Application Performance Monitoring (APM) and Observability solutions for cloud-native and microservice applications, today announced that Instana’s global engineering team accelerated growth and achieved process stability through applied Kanban practices powered by Kanbanize.

In search of a method to increase visibility across Instana’s more than 15 engineering teams in the U.S. and Europe, Instana was attracted to Kanban’s evolutionary process improvement approach to achieve organizational sustainability. The introduction of Kanban and Kanbanize gave Instana instant visibility into global engineering operations. Furthermore, it enabled the teams to achieve process stability, focus on value delivery, and institutionalize continuous improvement efforts. Instana also:

  • Transformed processes into pull systems which allowed teams to gain control over their workflow and helped stabilize demand fluctuations, resulting in improved process predictability.
  • Managed to unburden teams from manual tasks and focus their resources on delivering customer value through process automation.
  • Enabled the introduction of data-driven continuous improvement efforts and established necessary feedback loops with Kanbanize’s reporting and analytic capabilities.

“If it is just about visibility, you might get away with any task tracker, but if you want to take it seriously, close the feedback loop and help teams make informed data-driven decisions, then Kanbanize is the obvious tool,” said Nils Wloka, Director of Engineering at Instana.

Instana is currently evaluating the option to expand Kanban adoption along the entire value chain with a goal of achieving better fitness for purpose on an organizational level.
