Christopher Condo and Bill Seguin cites it as a strong performer in

Beyond naming Tasktop as a strong performer, it gave a differentiated
rating to Tasktop's VSM tool in the integration, vision, roadmap, market
approach and common data model criteria.

According to the Forrester New Wave, "VSM is an emerging tool category
that connects an organization's business to its software delivery
capability. VSM tools provide multiple roles — product managers,
developers, QA, and release managers — a view into planning, health
indicators, and analytics, helping them collaborate more effectively to
reduce waste and focus on work that delivers value to the customer and
the business."

The report also notes that "Tasktop is a best fit for companies that
want a best-of-breed DevOps stack. Tasktop aims to integrate and
coordinate value streams across your DevOps stack from ideation to
production, but it will leave domain-specific work to other specialized

"In supporting the digital transformations of Fortune 500 organizations
over the past 10 years, we recognized that Agile and DevOps were
critical, but not sufficient for success," said Mik Kersten, CEO,
Tasktop. "I believe that Forrester's call to elevate Agile and DevOps
with Value Stream Management speaks directly to the frustration that IT
leaders I work with are feeling around their digital transformations
failing to meet business needs. It is only by deploying a solution for
Value Stream Management that supports today's best-of-breed toolchains
that enterprises can scale their software innovation initiatives.
Tasktop is a unique Value Stream Management vendor as we focus on
integration and management across the many value-creation tools involved
in modern software delivery. We are honored to be in the company of the
other vendors in this report, many of whom we partner with, in order to
provide enterprises with both the value creation and the integration
needed to succeed with complex and multi-vendor toolchains. Tasktop's
strategy is all about end-to-end flow and feedback, and we are thrilled
to see this recognized as a critical component of Value Stream
Management strategy."
