The Gartner Magic Quadrants are among the most frequently discussed and cited market analyses. In each of their analyses, Gartner looks at a complex market and positions the main providers in a diagram based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute. The Gartner report also offers a brief market analysis and quantitative analyses of individual market players.

Various evaluation criteria with tough demands on solutions
Gartner analysts evaluate the manufacturers’ products but also factors like general visibility of the company, market responsiveness, marketing strategy and innovativeness.
Gartner even sets these main requirements for an ADLM solution: definition and management of requirements in software projects, change and configuration management in software projects, software project planning with a focus on agile planning, work-item management and quality management including error management. Additional capabilities and functions include reporting, workflows, integration with version management, support of wikis and collaboration and integration options with other ADLM systems. In Atlassian’s case, the tracking and project management solution JIRA was evaluated.
Recognition of the investment in agility, collaboration and scalability
The Australian software manufacturer sees its position as an acknowledgment of its investments in agile software development practices, its collaboration support for companies and the proven scalability of its products in enterprise environments.
As one of the largest Atlassian Enterprise partners in the world, //SEIBERT/MEDIA wants to congratulate Atlassian on this fantastic evaluation from one of the most renowned global market analysis companies!
