Apptio Targetprocess Continues to be Recognized as an Industry Leader

Since being acquired by Apptio in 2021, Targetprocess has received multiple awards recognizing its status as a leading enterprise Agile management solution.

Apptio acquired Targetprocess to help customers accelerate their Agile transformation through effective portfolio management and financial governance. Since the acquisition, we have continued to invest in new capabilities, and industry analysts have taken note. Our innovations in 2022 alone include integration with popular team-level Agile management tools and simplified data sharing with ApptioOne to deliver real-time variance analysis, continuous forecasting, and labor capability management.

Analysts validate what our customers tell us — Apptio Targetprocess is an industry leader.

Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Agile Planning (EAP) Tools

Our customers adopt Targetprocess to scale out Agile practices beyond small autonomous teams. Every enterprise Agile planning tool wants to help you scale resources smartly (without duplicating efforts) and map objectives and key results (OKRs) to strategy.

According to Gartner, only a handful of tools are leaders in this space. For the third year running, Gartner recognized Targetprocess as one of those tools. Targetprocess supports digital and hybrid portfolios, product road mapping, objectives and key results (OKRs), investment and strategy dashboards, and budget tracking. It was commended for its strong value stream and capital and operating expenditure support for financial management and Lean portfolio management in SAFe.

Leader in the GigaOm Agile Reader Report

When organizations start spinning up (and funding) multiple Agile teams, they need to make sure these teams are demonstrably focused on the right work. Technology and business leaders must understand how Agile aligns or contributes to strategy at the enterprise level.

The 2022 GigaOm Agile Reader Report for Agile Planning and Portfolio Management identifies Targetprocess as a “comprehensive Agile planning tool that empowers business people and IT teams to adopt Agile and scale it across the organization.” Apptio Targetprocess’ strengths center around the end-to-end road mapping of products, with strong financial management integration providing costs and business value throughout the product lifecycle.

The report gave Targetprocess a high score for its platform flexibility (“The platform provides many out-of-the-box templates and frameworks to speed time to market and enables more complex organizations to customize to meet their needs”). With its integration with ApptioOne, Targetprocess “facilitates an organization’s transition from traditional IT funding for projects to a product-based Agile funding model.”

G2 Badge Leader: Spring 2022

Though many organizations accept that “every company is now a software company,” most have to walk it a little more slowly than they talk it. They want the benefits of product-led development (e.g., quick time to value, accelerated customer feedback loops). Still, they are burdened with trying to manage Agile with a poorly fit EAP or project portfolio management (PPM) solution.

One area our customers have found lacking in other EAP solutions is rough estimates for labor costs that do not compare with actuals. When our customers give us that type of specific feedback, we act on it.

Our naming as a Leader in the G2 Project and Portfolio Management Spring 2022 report reflects that ethos. This award was based on receiving high customer satisfaction scores and a large market presence. We believe our roadmap reflects the needs of our customers, and the G2 results provided data to validate our outlook. 100% of users rated Targetprocess at 4 or 5 stars, and 100% believe our roadmap is heading in the right direction. 91% of respondents said they would recommend Targetprocess.

Most organizations are living in a hybrid investment world. They’re running projects while looking to scale out Agile teams across the enterprise. Our customers, and the analyst reports I’ve called out above, show that Targetprocess is providing the right capabilities for the hybrid investment world.
