According to Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Agile Planning (EAP) Tools, EAP tools help organizations to make use of Agile practices at scale to achieve enterprise-class Agile development. This is achieved by supporting practices that are business-outcome-driven, customer-centric, collaborative and cooperative, as well as with continual stakeholder feedback.
These tools represent an evolution from project-centric agile tools and traditional application lifecycle management (ALM) tools. The majority of products in the EAP tools market play into the overall ALM product set, acting as a hub for the definition and management of work-item tracking.
The 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Agile Planning Tools looks at tools specifically focused on the development of software through the use of Agile methodologies.
Agile adoption has become mainstream — Agile now accounts for more software development activity than any other type of methodology. Agile competency is growing throughout the industry.
Fragmented strategies — Most clients are still predominantly best-of-breed users of EAP and related tools, reflecting the fragmented tool strategies of many end-user organizations prior to adopting enterprise-class Agile development.
DevOps — The increasing use of DevOps and its extension into the business mean that parallel strategic commitments to agile development and governance are required.
Maturing Agile frameworks — As organizations apply Agile to larger software development efforts, Enterprise Agile frameworks are becoming more mature and more widely adopted, such as Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) and Disciplined Agile (DA).
Product management — The drive to provide continuous value has led enterprises to shift from a project-based software delivery approach to one that treats applications as products.
No matter what Agile methodology your teams practice, we want our tools to help you define and visualize your product’s core value, improve collaboration and alignment throughout your SDLC, iterate quickly and strategically, and release great software that your customers love.
