Gartner® Market Guide for Value Stream Management Platforms (VSMP)

According to Gartner, by 2026, “80% of organizations will use value stream management to align their software delivery priorities with business objectives.” This Market Guide states that “VSMPs help software engineering leaders identify and quantify opportunities to improve software product performance by optimizing cost, operating models, technology and processes.”

With a VSM platform, business and engineering stakeholders can work together to effectively fund, schedule, track, and manage work throughout its lifecycle from investment planning to execution. This alignment leads to a significant reduction in waste and inefficiency, as well as better software quality and a faster time to value.

This report provides a overview of the current VSM platform market, including the following Key Findings:

  • As pressure mounts for organizations to deliver more digital products faster, they need data-driven insights to prioritize, optimize and adapt to changing customer needs.
