Jama Positioned in Gartner Magic Quadrant for ADLM

This week Gartner released its 2013 “Magic Quadrant for Application Development Life Cycle Management (ADLM)” research report, and Jama Software has been positioned as a Niche player. We’re pleased to be recognized for our specialty focus on tackling the challenge of complex product delivery across the enterprise.

According to Gartner’s research, “the breadth of use of ADLM tools is expanding in organizations. Last year, we saw that 58% of use was for multiple roles on a project or team level. This year, that level has dropped to 43%, while enterprisewide adoption has grown from 37% to 52%.”

These findings strongly support what we hear from our enterprise customers: product delivery is not confined to development teams. To manage the complexity of today’s products, organizations need to align everyone invested in the outcome around what is being built and why.

According to Gartner: “Organizations are under pressure to accelerate the speed of delivery of increasingly complex applications, while improving overall productivity and quality.” We could not agree more. The challenge of delivering great products has never been greater, nor has it ever been more important to iterate and innovate quickly to meet the needs of customers.

We believe our placement in the Magic Quadrant is reflective of Jama’s focus on delivering customer value through collaborative, easy-to-use solutions that actually get adopted and used. The Jama Product Delivery Platform enables companies to deliver better products, better connect all stakeholders across teams and help companies cut development costs significantly.
