Companies are finding a competitive advantage by making a shift from traditional waterfall delivery practices to a more modern, agile approach. Agile is not only a methodology, it’s also a state of mind.
To make the most of this opportunity, teams are shifting from project to product development. The desired outcome is to increase speed to value realization. This can be achieved by deploying an enterprise agile planning (EAP) solution to comprehensively plan, track, and optimize the work across both waterfall and agile disciplines.
Driven by our dedication to help companies innovate to compete, we added Targetprocess to the Apptio solution suite a little over two months ago. It turns out we aren’t the only ones understanding the need for lean and agile development at scale.
Gartner has published its latest Magic Quadrant report for EAP, and we are extremely proud to see Apptio Targetprocess named a leader in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Agile Planning Tools for the second consecutive year.
In the report, Gartner describes several key attributes to support why the Apptio Targetprocess solution ranked above several products in the EAP market space:
- Targetprocess offers its solution for private, public, or vendor-hosted cloud and provides strong support for remote workers through collaboration tools. Targetprocess is a highly innovative company with leading support for product road mapping, OKRs, an automation rule engine, and many native integrations with other tools and platforms. Targetprocess also provides strong value stream/Opex support for financial management.
- Targetprocess delivers excellent visualization for both project and product portfolio management. It will appeal to organizations getting started with, or maturing, their agile capabilities and anticipating a shift from project-based to product-based practices. Targetprocess can deliver its portfolio-, product-, and program-management capabilities on top of Atlassian Jira Software and Microsoft Azure DevOps team-level solutions.
- Targetprocess supports scaling frameworks such as SAFe, Scrum of Scrums, Disciplined Agile, LeSS, Nexus, Spotify, and, notably, hybrid scaling frameworks. Targetprocess has solid integration capabilities, supporting both native and tool-enabled integrations with DevOps pipeline tools.
Gartner’s annual Magic Quadrant reports offer essential guidance to IT leaders evaluating technology solutions by helping to shorten the decision-making process. Being named a Gartner Magic Quadrant leader two years in a row is a great validator of our ability to deliver a world-class solution that enables IT leaders to support lean and agile development at scale.
We could not be prouder that Apptio Targetprocess was recognized as a 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Agile Planning Tools Leader.
