zAgile provides a comprehensive out of the box solution on a low cost subscription basis. The company’s business model utilizes viral adoption in order to tap into the global open source developer tool community and build the user base. A trial version of the commercial license subscription is easy to install with a 30 day free evaluation. A fully supported product offering is available starting at $2,495 for a single server license (< 20 seats). Over time, zAgile intends to up-sell its installed base with additional server and application products as well as support for proprietary applications and tools in typical environments.
zAgile unifies all applications within the software delivery environment, with a unified portal, semantically enhanced search, full collaboration, thorough knowledge discovery, methodology dissemination, and dashboard level reporting for all projects. Because of the breadth and depth of the offering, it’s difficult to directly compare zAgile to other players in the market. Some clearly offer Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) toolsets and suites. These are un-integrated, inflexible offerings that don’t solve customer problems. Others are better understood as Lifecycle stage tools. These are the components that are integrated into the zAgile portal. Thus, the competitive segments we’ve chosen to compare are not direct competitors, merely players in a similar market, many of which are go-forward partner targets for integration of their toolsets into the zAgile offering.
