HCL Accelerate Features
HCL Accelerate is the first-of-its-kind tool for value stream management. It brings your data together once and for all, and empowers users to extract actionable, meaningful insights about the status and efficiency of your stream.
Visualize your process
HCL Accelerate visualizes workflow to help you spot and eliminate bottlenecks, rethink daily standups and prioritize developer work.
With this unprecedented view into your DevOps data, you can make better decisions for budgeting, timelines, and staffing.
Instead of using cumbersome, text-heavy reporting, HCL Accelerate provides easy-to-understand, visual representations of your DevOps data.
Get a birds-eye view
HCL Accelerate shows you data from all your fragmented pipelines at once, so you get a complete view of your organization's development work.
Automate governance & compliance
HCL Accelerate offers an advanced level of governance with intelligent gates and audit tracking so you can manage risk and improve quality.
Manage stage actions
With HCL Accelerate, you can deploy immediately, schedule deployments, or join releases to move quickly through lower environments and protect higher environments.
Risk & Governance
Avoid catastrophic incidents by catching security, compliance, and other risks earlier in the lifecycle.
Cost & Stability
Minimize re-work, reduce defects, and improve change success rates.
Revenue & flow
Dramatically reduce time from idea to production capability while increasing productivity.
Dots are what we call the visual representation of work items in the value stream. Each Dot represents a unique work item, and the symbols inside the Dot tell you the status of that work item.
HCL Accelerate offers full traceability through the history section that shows you who did what and when for each work item.
Each Dot represents key components of the value stream with different symbols. For example, a square with a red outline represents a pull request that has an alert on it.
Using the Swim Lanes view, you can see who has too much on their plate and who needs support. Team leads can use this info to redistribute work and offer help to team members to reach business goals.
The Swim Lanes view reorganizes your original value steam based on assigned user. You can use this view to identify who owns specific work items and how far along these items are in the Value Stream. Take your agile ceremonies to the next level by being able to spot who needs help or which items might be stuck.
Dashboards full of data
Dashboards give you a broad overview of your key metrics by showing you trends over time so you can spot problem areas and opportunities to drive business agility. You can download this data as a csv or excel file to share outside of HCL Accelerate.
HCL Accelerate really shines in the insights section, where you'll find Dashboards and Reports that aggregate the data from your DevOps tools to produce meaningful metrics and guide data-driven decisions.
Metrics that matter
Jump start your Value Stream journey and use HCL Accelerate's out-of-the-box metrics or customize your own for your business's unique needs. A few of the standard metrics are:
- Lead Time
- Production Deploys
- Open Vulnerabilities
- Open Defects
Reports to dig deeper
Reports go a level deeper than Dashboards by analyzing your data and creating visual representations of the metrics that matter most to your organization. HCL Accelerate offers out-of-the-box reports for things like deployment audits and sprint status. You can also build custom reports that deliver information tailored to your team’s needs. These reports are auto-generated and delivered via email for easy sharing with stakeholders throughout your business.

You can't manage what you can't measure. HCL Accelerate solves this with comprehensive reporting that is meant to be shared outside the development team. Use this data to measure ROI and to make more strategic decisions on allocating resources.
Once development teams start using HCL Accelerate, work runs more smoothly. Remove bottlenecks, improve the balance and management of work, and enhance your scrum ceremonies. With the power of DevOps data, collaboration is a breeze.
With everything in one tool, release managers have visibility like never before. See what's going into the release, where the release is in its life cycle, who's involved in the release, and more, all in one tool.
