Kanbanize Enables Instana to Accelerate Growth and Improve Value Delivery Across Distributed Engineering Teams
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.

Disruptive Tech Asean Comments That Semiconductor Industry in China Eyes on a New Beyond the Manufacturing Of 7nm Chips3.12.2020 13:00:00 EET | Press release
Disruptive Tech Asean learnt from Li Ke from China Semiconductor Industry Association (CSIA) that an integrated circuit industry is vital for developing modern industries, and China is therefore imperative to localize chip industry supply chain and develop homegrown-core chips. Li Ke believes that China will have the ability to fully mass-produce its own 28nm chips in one or two years, as well as having a completely domestic industry chain and independent chip manufacturing capabilities. According to Gartner’s forecast at the end of 2019, the global semiconductor market would grow by 12.5% in 2020. Yet, with devastating impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the forecast was revised to a decline of 0.9%. According to Andrew Norwood, Research Vice President at Gartner, “COVID-19 has distorted supply chain and manufacturing operations across the world and will lead to a drastic drop in consumer and enterprise spending across most areas with a few exceptions.” The US-China trade war has also c

Measuring What Matters: A New Approach to Assessing Sovereign Climate Risk3.12.2020 11:23:00 EET | Press release
Moody’s affiliate Four Twenty Seven today released a report analyzing the future exposure of the global population, the economy, and agriculture to a range of climate hazards, exploring both global trends and findings by country. Leveraging new analytics developed by Four Twenty Seven, the report assesses exposure to floods, heat stress, hurricanes and typhoons, rising sea levels, wildfires, and water stress and is based on the only known global dataset matching physical climate risk exposure to population location, GDP Purchasing Power Parity (PPP), and agricultural areas within countries. “This novel dataset provides a detailed view of the exposure of key human and economic assets around the world. Understanding exposure is critical for investors and credit institutions to price climate risk, but also to help direct finance flows towards adaptation and resilience where they’re most needed,” says Emilie Mazzacurati, Global Head of Moody’s Climate Solutions in Moody’s ESG Solutions Gro
