As a product owner, you work with different systems, documents, etc., whose data are all related to each other, and in their entirety provide information about the current status of the product, control where the journey should go, and what the path there looks like. The problem is that it is precisely this totality of data that provides the overview, and the totality of tools that covers the activities that a product owner must perform in order to align the product with the vision, and to steer the development accordingly. There are the customers and the products and versions they use, the customer requirements, ideas for new features, calls for tenders, monitoring what is happening in the market, the bugs that are reported, the Maintainability Index, which provides information about the health of the product, and of course the roadmap, the backlog, the sprints, etc. The product owner is responsible for all of this.
Databoxx offers the possibility to bring all these things together and to do all tasks in one application, in a uniform, specifically tailored UI. Stakeholders who only use one of these systems can continue to work in their familiar environment, such as the developers in Jira. At the same time, all stakeholders work with up-to-date data at all times, as the systems are only virtually connected to each other and data and changes are distributed in real time within the entire application network.
By combining the data from the different systems and creating new features through databoxx, completely new possibilities suddenly arise. And all through just a little configuration.
Directly from the feature list in Confluence, user stories can suddenly be created in Jira practically at the push of a button, while the original requirement remains linked to the resulting user story or epic, so that you can go back to the original requirement at any time. Requirements can be automatically aggregated from different systems and given a frequency of how often the feature was requested, e.g. in tenders and customer enquiries, by filing these documents and including them as a data source. In addition, these requests can be assigned to the product strategy and automatically prioritised. By looking at the matching rate of the requirements to the product strategy, the product strategy can be evaluated against what is happening in the market.
These are only examples of the many possibilities. The databoxx can become the centre of your Data Driven Product Management. All you have to do is configure your existing systems as data sources in the databoxx and put together a UI by connecting widgets to the data sources and placing them on a screen, if necessary establishing relationships between the widgets. And you are ready to go.
Make better decisions and track their effectiveness. Align your product and strategy better with the market. Increase your efficiency in product management by making your UI more relevant, and thus more focused on the tasks at hand, or by automating previously manual processes.
Become data driven in other areas of your company as well. Let us inspire you!
