Blueprint included in Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Agile Planning Tools, recognised for its completeness of vision and ability to execute.
TORONTO, April 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -Blueprint, a leading Agile planning, requirements and compliance management software company, announced today that it has been recognized by Gartner in their 2018 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Agile Planning Tools*.
Blueprint believes that this recognition from Gartner validates their strategy of empowering companies to deliver successful products to market by driving innovation, collaboration, and alignment throughout the development lifecycle and positions them as an important disruptive force in a rapidly evolving market.
"We are extremely proud that Blueprint has been acknowledged by Gartner in this Magic Quadrant. To us, our recognition in this Magic Quadrant is great validation of our unique commitment to supporting enterprise organizations at all stages of their Agile transformation," said Dan Shimmerman, Blueprint CEO.
Blueprint is one of eleven vendors recognized in the Magic Quadrant.
Storyteller, Blueprint's EAP solution that is disrupting the market, is an enterprise-class platform purpose-built for scaling Agile development practices.
Blueprint believes that Storyteller's unique value in the EAP market, with its robust automation, collaboration and re-use features, arises from its use of visual models, which enable business and IT stakeholders to collaboratively define customer journeys, value streams, and business processes. This design-focused approach to development enables customers to focus on strategically defining the product they want to build from a customer-value perspective, rather than simply tracking the progress of their development work.
According to the report, "Toolchain-based DevOps practices are the norm, and EAP tools are becoming a part of that toolchain. This places emphasis on the ability of EAP tools to integrate with and consume data from other tools in the chain for planning, reporting and analysis. As enterprises are moving away from traditional project-based application development to product-oriented, continuous value streams, planning, budgeting and other governance activities are changing — demanding that tools change as well."
"We are extremely proud that Storyteller is resonating so strongly with the market," said Tony Higgins, Chief Technology Officer at Blueprint. "Blueprint's combination of best-in-class solutions, paired with some of the most experienced consultants in the industry, means that our customers are truly equipped to succeed in this next wave of Agile development and take their transformations to new heights."
