Recognized for the second consecutive year, Gartner has positioned Blueprint in the Visionaries quadrant this year based on its ability to execute and completeness of vision.
TORONTO, Canada - April 22, 2019 – Blueprint today announced it has been named by Gartner, Inc. as a Visionary in the 2019 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Agile Planning Tools.
Blueprint offers Storyteller, an enterprise-class platform purpose-built to create unparalleled alignment between strategy, execution and delivery throughout software development cycles.
The result is faster delivery of high-value and compliant product releases, at vastly reduced cost and exposure to risk.
“To thrive in today’s digital market, modern organizations must focus on providing customer value faster than the competition. This requires a flexibility and responsiveness that only comes from robust alignment between strategy, execution and delivery so that companies can deliver better products at a faster pace, while maintaining their ability to adapt to customer needs, as well as regulatory and market changes,” said Daniel Shimmerman, CEO at Blueprint. “We are extremely proud to be recognized as a Visionary in our second inclusion in a Gartner Magic Quadrant. To us, this is truly an honor to be shared with our amazing customers, partners, and team.”
According to the report, “Agile adoption has traditionally been driven from the bottom up, and enterprise-class agile development is a natural evolution of project-level agile to support the needs of large-scale software management. Often, the needs of the agile teams themselves have differed from those of their management, which has led to the use of a variety of tools. Top-down, strategic adoption of agile is now growing, however, driven by digital business initiatives that demand quick delivery of solutions to new types of problems.”
Designed to support scaling from the bottom up or the top-down, Blueprint’s Storyteller platform pairs enterprise capabilities with ease-of-use to unify and enable teams at all levels across the organization to envision and deliver great software. By providing real-time visibility and collaboration, end-to-end traceability, and robust automation, users are empowered to quickly access the information most relevant to their day to day work and align with the organization’s broader strategy.
Recognized by Gartner for the second consecutive year, Blueprint’s placement as a Visionary is an exciting migration from their previous placement as a Niche Player.
