Improvements to My Organization

This product helps some of our customers achieve agility and delivery effectiveness.

Room for Improvement

The overall installation architecture should be simplified. There are so many components involved in the overall installation and the starting process. They should be made internal, such as:

  • Enterprise Dashboard
  • Registry
  • Portal Broker
  • VSE

Instead of all these being manual and optional, they should be compulsory, internal processes.
