Evaluations Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute
ATLANTA – May 3, 2017 – VersionOne, the leader in unified Agile and DevOps software solutions, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders Quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Agile Planning Tools.”
According to Gartner, leaders in this market have shown a combination of strong vision either in leading agile thought or the combination of agile with developer collaboration and DevOps. Leaders have broad market reach and adoption, as shown in client inquiries and survey data as well as their corresponding growth and market presence. Vendors in this category are safe bets for large-scale adoption and we expect them to have a continued solid market presence. Leaders tend to have established marketplaces that provide them with extended functionality via partners. All have strong integration capability. They have strong networks for training and implementation, and can operate well globally.
“We consider our positioning in the Leaders Quadrant by Gartner confirmation of our mission to help software organizations scale enterprise-wide agility,” said Robert Holler, CEO of VersionOne. “Our enterprise software platform for unified agile and DevOps enables teams at all levels–enterprise, portfolio, program, and team to accelerate software delivery.”
Gartner outlines top-level trends driving purchase decisions for enterprise agile planning tools including:
- Agile adoption is becoming mainstream; while still relatively low, agile competency is growing throughout the industry
- The increasing adoption of a DevOps strategy means that a parallel strategic commitment to agile is required.
They state enterprise agile planning tools are increasingly important with the global diversification of development teams, to aid with the collaboration and coordination of work. 88% of tool users have distributed teams, according to the agile adoption and user survey associated with this Magic Quadrant. Gartner also finds that changing culture still is the largest challenge to agile adoption.
