Now say that 3 times fast Smile

Gartner recently released their 2013 report on ADLM.  I’m very pleased to see that, once again, they’ve placed us in the leaders quadrant.  And this placement doesn’t even consider the new capabilities we delivered in 2013 – it’s based on the 2012 wave of products.

While any assessment like this has to be carefully evaluated with your own requirements in mind, it’s very satisfying to be recognized for the hard work we do to try to create a great product for development organizations.  At the same time, I always feel like we’ve barely scratched the surface on everything there is to do.  We recently met with our Microsoft MVP group to review our plans for the next year and the primary reaction I got from them was that they were blown away by the amount of new value we have in the pipeline.  The fun never stops.
