After almost a year of work, Jeffrey Hammond and I finally published the Agile Development Management Tools Forrester Wave™ evaluation. So I thought I would share some of the observations from this report. Agile has changed the way in which development teams work, and this changed motivated the Forrester Wave. A change that has meant not only new ways of working, but also new vendors have entered the traditional application life-cycle management marketplace. The Forrester Wave focused on the following main areas:
The Agile Development Management Tools Forrester Wave evaluated ten tool vendors; MKS, IBM, CollabNet, Rally Software, Atlassian, HP, Serena, Microsoft, VersionOne, and Micro Focus.
Forrester’s evaluation of Agile development management (ADM) tools reveals a vibrant, competitive, and changing market. The merging of traditional ALM features with Agile project management highlights that the Agile program portfolio management (PPM) market and ALM markets are consolidating. Many vendors continue to invest in program and project management, and reporting and integration with development, test, build and deployment tools. The resulting solution provides a task-driven, Agile-oriented development management platform that consolidates planning, status and real project metrics in one place. It also provides visibility of requirements, defects, and change requests for a system or product allowing broader application life-cycle activities to be consolidated in this platform. Apart from reviewing the Forrester Wave, Application Development professionals should consider the following:
