Value delivery can’t keep pace without Agile.

As the world demands more software, development teams from startups to enterprise are meeting the challenge by turning to Agile. Without Agile and Lean practices, value delivery can't keep pace. The entire business risks falling behind on customer commitments, the competition and the company's strategic roadmap.

“Rally's leadership rests with its breadth and depth of capabilities for Agile teams, combined with a strong and focused corporate strategy.”

Forrester Research, Inc. The Forrester Wave™:
Application Life-Cycle Management, Q4 2012

“Rally’s new project portfolio management solution is the most classically Agile project management tool in the evaluation.”

Organizational leaders are breaking down the walls between development and the business.

Traditional approaches to managing projects and portfolios focus too much on maximizing utilization and too little on the highest value work. Leaders in the most successful, market-satisfying organizations empower development to deliver the most important features first, and protect them from wasteful context switching.

“Rally's tools are optimized for Agile planning, project management, status reporting, and other actions that happen within and outside sprints.”

“Rally emphasizes project health but is strong on Lean portfolio management.”

Business agility demands fast feedback.

To outpace the competition, organizations have to see information as it develops: bringing agility to the whole software product lifecycle from planning to release. Business leaders must be able to respond when business conditions change frequently in this highly disruptable climate.

“Rally’s focus on Agile and Lean...has led the company to build top-notch planning capabilities into its tools.”
