First there was software release management: software that handles the various configurations and processes around releasing software builds into various environments.
The next level up from release management would be software lifecycle management: software platforms that orchestrate and automate various software-related processes across the entire lifecycle, from design through development and test, and then onto release and management.
Plutora takes this progression to an even higher level: software value stream management. Value stream management uplevels the idea of lifecycle management by focusing on the value the software provides to the end-customers that use the software.
