Have you heard the good news?
BiZZdesign has been named a Leader by industry analyst firm Gartner in its 2016 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools*!
As you can imagine, it has been an exciting week at BiZZdesign HQ; we’ve been celebrating with a glass of bubbly and lots of cake. But why exactly have we been acknowledged as a Leader in 2016?
Our leading qualities
Every year, Gartner evaluates vendors based on their ability to execute, and their completeness of vision. In their own words, “The Leaders in our 2016 Magic Quadrant demonstrate clear support for delivering business outcome-driven EA, modeling and analysis. The Leaders also demonstrate a clear vision of digital business today and in the future. The Leaders are responding to the needs of leading EA practitioners that Gartner highlights in its research.”
Before we elaborate, we’d like to point out that if you’re reading this blog, that means you’re currently on our brand new website, which we launched in April! If you haven’t already, feel free to click around the tabs above to discover what we’re all about!
We believe that our future-proof vision is one of our many leading qualities acknowledged by Gartner. At BiZZdesign, we really and truly do understand the challenges that your organization faces in today’s constantly evolving business environment. It’s not always easy to adapt when the only thing that is constant is change! At BiZZdesign, we want to help you to tackle those challenges, and help you achieve your desired business outcomes. We aim to do this with our (in our opinion) incomparable software platform, Enterprise Studio, and the support that comes with it. Now tell me that’s not a Leader-worthy vision!
In the last couple of years, we have implemented a detailed growth plan, which involved handing management over to a new team with the experience necessary to help us lead the business design market. We achieved record yearly results in 2015, including 80% growth of the new software license revenue. What’s more, in December 2015, Gartner also evaluated our product capability, from which we received the top score in the Making Smarter Decisions Faster Use Case, reflecting one of three Use Cases in its Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Architecture Tools** report.
We see our position as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant as the latest in a string of successes for BiZZdesign.
Looking to the future
This year, we have been focusing on improving our product, and defining our vision further to help make sure your organization is reaching its full potential. We’ve been hiring lots of new employees worldwide, and expanding our global partner network. Today, we offer business design solutions to over 1,000 customers on six continents. We’re now better equipped to respond to the needs of our customers.
We’re very proud of our result, but we believe we need to follow our own golden rule of being an adaptive enterprise. Therefore, we continue to look to the future; we will keep adapting to the times, improving our product continuously, and collaborating with new partners to ensure that we lead the market for years to come!
That said, there’s no better time to announce that the latest version of our software platform, Enterprise Studio, will be released in Summer 2016. Watch this space!
