ADLM Leader is Trusted Partner for Driving Agile Practices into Businesses Around the World

BOULDER, Colo., Dec. 2, 2013 - Rally (NYSE: RALY) is named a Leader in Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant for Application Development Life Cycle Management.”¹ The November 2013 report evaluates 16 solution providers against 15 key criteria that focus on completeness of vision and ability to execute.

“Our leadership position in Gartner’s ADLM MQ closes out a banner year for Rally. For over 10 years, we’ve honed our Lean development approach to introducing new functionality and evolving our products to achieve true business agility for Rally and our customers,” said Rally’s CEO Tim Miller. “Rally enables businesses around the world to reduce time-to-market, continually innovate, and stay competitive in today’s complex marketplace.”

Rally Pioneered Agile

Rally was founded with a vision to provide a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) subscription that uses Agile practices to eliminate waste from the process of developing software. Today, companies around the globe rely on Rally’s Agile ALM SaaS platform, Agile Portfolio Management solutions, and transformation consulting services to align everyone across organizations with short, efficient delivery cycles that drive innovation and customer satisfaction. Rally’s SaaS infrastructure provides secure access to data spanning the complete lifecycle - from development to portfolio management - from anywhere in the world.

Rally Is A Leader in Both Ability to Execute & Completeness of Vision

Gartner Magic Quadrants provide a wide-angle view of the relative position of the market’s competitors by rigorously analyzing vendors in two categories: Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision.

Gartner explains its criteria for Ability to Execute:

  • “Product execution is critical in this market, and Leaders are able to deliver new functionality at a consistent pace with consistent user interfaces.”

  • “Therefore, leading execution means delivering intuitive tools with a consistent delivery cadence with strong integration capabilities, and using innovative pricing models.”

  • “Responsive companies are able to pivot effectively as the market shifts.”

  • “Operations are key because they tie in to responsive companies and the ability to actually deliver software. For SaaS companies, it is the ability to scale, to be stable and to deliver cost/price advantages.”

Gartner explains its criteria for Completeness of Vision:

  • “Because of the strong relevance of agile, we placed the most emphasis on how vendors are driving agile vision in the areas of collaboration, scale (both in size and roles supported), and connection to portfolio management and application release. These elements feed the scoring for a vendor’s innovation abilities.”

  • “Vendors without an understanding of market trends in practices and the evolution of delivery platforms will slowly find themselves pushed into a corner. Once a vendor has a solid understanding, the ability to innovate (which creates differentiation) in technology, as well as the offer strategy, are critical.”
