ValueBlue Named a Niche Player in the 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Enterprise Architecture Tools

ValueBlue recognized for completeness of vision and ability to execute for the fourth year in a row

NEW YORK, Dec. 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — ValueBlue, creators of the BlueDolphin agile business transformation platform, today announced the company’s inclusion as a Niche Player in the latest Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Enterprise Architecture Tools. We believe our inclusion in the Magic Quadrant™ is the result of adding new capabilities to BlueDolphin that optimize digital transformation and drive measurable business value for customers.

Per Gartner, “as part of our evaluation process, we used five key use cases that we believe are important to enterprise architects, as well as senior leadership that vendors need to support to maintain relevance in the EA tool market:

  • Supporting change, transformation, and optimization
  • Assessing and managing an evolving IT portfolio
  • Capturing, structuring, analyzing, and presenting models
  • Innovation and sustainability
  • Enterprise architecture (EA) management

“For us, the Gartner® Magic Quadrant recognition is a testament to our success at democratizing EA and ensuring it drives value across the business,” said Wilko Visser, Founder and CEO of ValueBlue. “The features added to BlueDolphin promote closer collaboration between IT and senior management and enable truly agile business transformation. We feel Our increase in market recognition is a direct reflection of the power of BlueDolphin.”

ValueBlue’s BlueDolphin platform also has been recognized for speeding time-to-value for customers. BlueDolphin features a short learning curve, interactive user onboarding, an accessible user interface, and a real-time data repository. BlueDolphin also simplifies collaboration between enterprise architects and business stakeholders, including visualizing business processes.

“BlueDolphin makes it very easy to discuss EA and portfolio management with the business, to collaborate with architects and stakeholders, and to visualize business processes and target states,” said the IT Director at one ValueBlue customer company. “It’s much easier to use than other EA tools I know, especially in organizations with little expertise in EA.”

ValueBlue continues to gain market awareness and build sales by investing in trends that directly address customer concerns. The company has seen 43% of business growth in 2022 from outside its home market in the Netherlands. BlueDolphin is proving valuable to customers, with 93% saying they would recommend the platform in the 2022 Gartner Peer Insights™ report.
