Octo’s Javana helps organizations start, manage, and optimize their Agile and DevSecOps deliveries in a fully automated and integrated manner – from the first user story to the final sprint.
Javana fuses CMMI-DEV Level 4 processes, tools, and templates with your existing artifacts and processes to help you create a seamless, scalable Agile program. There are three core elements:
1 / Processes
The Agile Knowledge Center (AKC) is a web-based repository designed to ensure consistent application of Agile practices across all of your Agile Teams. With roles-based guidance and templates tailored to your agency, your Agile Teams will know “what” to do “when,” and provide proper documentation at every step. Plus, any process or template changes are automatically propagated throughout the repository.
2 / Tools
OPTIC is a fully developed, ready-to-use DevSecOps pipeline that gives you the power to deliver high quality code in minutes. Yes, minutes. It’s a true “one-click” solution. OPTIC provides pre-configured infrastructure; containerized automation; source code management; coding practices; and testing, compliance, and deployment solutions, all with numerous built-in pre-connections. With OPTIC, you can integrate all of your Agile teams into the same workflows, snap in and out your preferred technologies, and evolve the pipeline as you go.
Instead of spending weeks to stand up tools and systems, you’re able to start delivering 98% defect-free code in as few as 30 minutes.
3 / Insights
Javana provides extensive performance insights via the Executive Dashboard. This highly customizable open-source dashboard delivers real-time performance metrics down to the team and individual levels. Binary indicators let you know when a team or individual is on or off track. Meaningful performance metrics – like Quality, Velocity, Technical Debt, and Shipping Cadence – are continuously available, enabling proactive risk mitigation as well as the replication of successful practices. You’ll see the Return on Investment (ROI) of each sprint and be able to measure and manage performance and budget for every team and program.
