TCS was one of seven new vendors added to the Magic Quadrant this year that evaluated 17 vendors. According to the report, “Tools in this category should enable the use of agile in the enterprise, which means supporting agile practices that span the organization and that encompass the largest software development efforts. Thus, the tools evaluated in this Magic Quadrant have capabilities for planning and collaborating at a team level, but also provide functionality that enables scaling across multiple teams…Successful tools will also function as part of an overall DevOps toolchain, serving as a hub for information that will be used for planning and creating measurements of value delivery.”

The product enables an enterprise to envision their IT initiatives in alignment to their core business objectives and subsequently equip project teams with the right set of tools, processes and controls to deliver value to their stakeholders continuously.

Jile helps multiple teams of teams plan and deliver large products. Distributed agile teams can manage synchronized, incremental delivery of large systems involving complex sub-products, across different technology stacks, each with its own product vision, roadmap, and release cycle. This way, Jile helps organizations that develop and manage large IT systems embrace Agile and DevOps at scale for their innovation, and gain business agility.
