SDLC Insights

Improve observability, predictability and efficiency

When Bloomfilter was founded, one of our first influences (and beta testers) was Myron Schram. Myron is an incredible thought leader in the world of software engineering efficiency and quality with a detailed and rigorous methodology for how software should be developed.

As Myron looked at the Bloomfilter platform, he put in our first two customer features requests:

  • Export the visuals to PPT images so they could be included in Exec team and Board level discussions
  • Export the visuals elegantly to a TV in kiosk mode so they could be on screen during daily developer standups

Myron grasped, before we did, that unifying the flow of information and perspective from the top to the bottom of a development organization could completely change the conversation around how software is developed.

As usual, Silicon Valley perfectly parodies the problem that so often happens:

When everyone is looking at different data and has a different understanding of the state of software development, it leads to terrible misunderstandings and missed commitments.

Myron gets this better than anyone, which is why it’s so fitting that we are able to tell Myron’s story at the same time we talk about the specific use cases of Bloomfilter:

Use Case 1: Stand Up Meetings: Fostering observability across teams

The daily standup is the lifeblood of modern software development. The meeting where the team syncs on key priorities, risks and issues. By giving an understanding of what’s happening across the SDLC, Bloomfilter’s process intelligence software allows your team to track progress and anticipate risks, all while aligning them with your engineering organizational objectives

Use Case 2: Sprint Review Meetings: Continuous improvement at it’s best

Assessing whether expectations were met during the sprint period is critical particularly when it comes to continuous improvement. Teams are using Bloomfilter in sprint review meetings to observe velocity for the sprint period measured against average velocity to uncover process enhancement opportunities. Gain transparency into project status with flow of work by phase to understand how work flows through your SDLC, allowing for data-backed prioritization and confident risk and opportunity management. 

Use Case 3: Quarterly Executive Meetings: Observing business priorities for success


Bloomfilter gives executives a quantitative baseline to begin forecasting planned work and team performance expectations. To understand the efficiency of your investment for any given project, relate velocity from the project page to build costs from the financials page.  Improve observability for all stakeholders with a shared understanding of expectations and commitments. 

Intrusion Case Study: Empowering productivity and collaboration

We’re also excited to share a real-life example of how all 3 use cases come together.  Let's examine how Intrusion is using Bloomfilter across their SDLC.  

Intrusion faces significant operating challenges in their engineering dominant culture. With complex product requirements and diverse team workflows, coordination and innovation became difficult. However, with Bloomfilter, they replaced manual processes with streamlined collaboration, boosting productivity. 

Discover how Bloomfilter empowered Intrusion's VP of Product, Myron Schram, to eliminate time-consuming spreadsheets and gain real-time insights into software delivery. Specifically, read how Bloomfilter's data visualization capabilities helped them make informed decisions, save time, and consistently meet targets. 

If you're seeking inspiration for upgrading your SDLC process, explore Intrusion's case study. 

And, if your organization is ready to save up to $1 million of process waste, schedule a demo with Bloomfilter today.
