Plandek recognised again as a top vendor by Gartner

Gartner VSM Market Guide 2021/2022

Plandek is recognised again in Gartner’s updated Market Guide in November 2021, reaffirming global vendor leadership in end-to-end software delivery analytics.

Gartner published the revised edition of their DevOps Value Steam Management Platforms Market Guide in November 2021.

The Guide re-emphasises the importance of Value Stream Metrics in software delivery as organisations look to align their Agile DevOps processes around defined value streams.

Indeed, the Guide forecasts that by 2023, 70% of all organisations will be taking a Value Stream Management approach to agile software delivery.

The Guide notes Plandek’s unique positioning in the Value Stream Management space, providing end-to-end software delivery, agile, engineering, DevOps and Value Stream Metrics and related analytics. In particular, Plandek helps to identify the root cause of issues and facilitates optimised value delivery.

The key Plandek differentiators noted in the Gartner Market Guide include:

  • Plandek’s provision of end-to-end visibility and analysis of the delivery process across value streams to track and improve: time to value (through metrics such as Cycle Time and Lead Time); delivery efficiency (through metrics such as Flow Efficiency); delivery and engineering quality; pipeline management; and delivery team accuracy at sprint level.
  • Plandek’s provision of relevant, high-quality metrics, including the DORA metrics, flow metrics and a variety of other agile delivery, DevOps and engineering metrics.
  • Plandek’s flexible analytics hierarchy enables analysis by the organisation, value stream, program, project and team to enable use by multiple personas and to identify the root cause of problems.
  • Plandek’s provision of value stream insight for both teams and managers and its ability to provide custom dashboards and analytics tools for all key stakeholders from Team Leads to the CIO in Scaled Agile and agile environments.

Co-CEO of Plandek Charlie Ponsonby comments:

We are delighted that Plandek’s unique end-to-end delivery analytics capabilities are again recognised by Gartner alongside heavyweights such as IBM, CloudBees and ServiceNow in the exploding Value Stream Management space.

Charlie continues:

‘This latest Gartner Market Guide underlines the fact that Value Stream Management is the next big innovation in Agile DevOps – with 70% of all organisations forecast to adopt a VSM approach by 2023. And as a key global vendor, Plandek is ideally positioned to surf the rapidly growing demand for VSM solutions.’
