The geographic growth of Blueprint’s sales and business development effort is part of a wider strategic plan to help large, enterprise companies deliver successful IT projects worldwide.
Successful Fundraising Fuels Hyper growth
In 2015, Blueprint secured $23 million in funding, led by US-based Centana Growth Partners.
With this injection of funds, Blueprint will focus on:
- Continued expansion into new, global markets
- Increased innovation to respond to evolving market needs and interests
- Enhanced services with Customer and Partner programs
Enhanced Functionality Improves Blueprint’s Industry Leading Software
Blueprint’s acclaimed requirements definition and management solution continued to evolve in 2015. New and enhanced capabilities to its industry-leading software help clients accelerate requirements delivery and improve software quality.
- Expanded packaged content to complement the existing Agile Accelerator - Blueprint launched its second content accelerator for Non-Functional Requirements, which integrates a catalog of more than 2,000 pre-defined elicitation questions of non-functional requirements into its software to jumpstart projects and reduce risk.
- Enhanced requirements traceability with Impact Analysis. This robust visual capability lets users quickly identify the potential consequence, or ‘impact’, of any proposed change to the requirements.
New Strategic Partnerships Expand Blueprint’s Impact
Strategic partnerships with other leading software and services companies means more organizations benefit from Blueprint’s industry-leading capabilities.
Blueprint partnered with both EIS Group and Majesco, leading providers of insurance software solutions. Both organizations will leverage Blueprint to help increase agility and speed-to-market, while reducing risk.
This year, Blueprint also established an alliance with NTT DATA Canada, Inc., which is part of the NTT DATA Group, a global IT services provider and innovation partner that delivers consulting, application services, business process and IT outsourcing, and cloud-based solutions. The alliance between Blueprint and NTT DATA will allow the organizations to deliver enhanced capabilities and greater value to their clients across most major industry segments.
Blueprint extended its offering in 2015 by partnering with Tasktop, the industry leader in Software Lifecycle integrations. This partnership delivers robust integration of Blueprint with other industry leading IT software solutions, like JIRA, HP, Rally, and ServiceNow.
Blueprint topped the list of a recent analysis of forty-five requirements definition and management tools across 28 criteria. Seilevel, a leading business analysis and requirements consulting firm, performed the research during the last half of 2015 and will release additional information on the study in early 2016.
