ServiceNow (NYSE: NOW), the leading digital workflow company that makes work, work better for people, has been named a Leader in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Agile Planning (EAP) Tools. This is the third consecutive year that ServiceNow was recognized for its IT Business Management (ITBM) product suite and first time positioned as a Leader.
Built on the Now Platform, ServiceNow ITBM delivers enterprise agility for better business outcomes, allowing customers to generate greater value from initiatives and enabling faster change across the enterprise. ServiceNow is the leading vendor to support both traditional project portfolio management and agile portfolio on a single platform, with a single data model. Enabling ServiceNow’s planning functionality across agile teams and tasks, including DevOps, allows organizations to monitor the impact of proposed investment decisions, while also clearly visualizing and communicating cross-functional plans.
“Gartner’s recognition of ServiceNow as a Magic Quadrant Leader in the enterprise agile planning tools domain is a great achievement for us,” said Yoav Boaz, senior director, product management, ITBM at ServiceNow. “ServiceNow is the only vendor to support both traditional project portfolio management and agile portfolios on a single platform. We believe we are ideally positioned to accelerate customers’ digital and agile transformation initiatives, and we are excited to continue this momentum and expand our industry leadership in IT business management.”
According to Gartner, “Enterprise agile is a steadily growing mainstream practice. Organizations adopting enterprise agile development are challenged to coordinate the work of multiple agile teams and adapt their governance and leadership processes to support agile methodologies. EAP tools help with this by providing increased visibility into the delivery of work.” 1
With Gartner’s recognition of ServiceNow’s ITBM portfolio, ServiceNow believes this validates its go-to-market approach for agile solutions in IT business management and confirms its strategy is on target.
