Magic Quadrant for Application Life Cycle Management (Section 508 Compliance)
Tools in the ADLM space offer mixed support for Section 508. This is especially true for browser-based tools, which find challenges in the facilities exposed by various browsers and rich-client browser toolkits.

About Gartner’s Cool Vendors Selection Process
Gartner’s listing does not constitute an exhaustive list of vendors in any given technology area, but rather is designed to highlight interesting, new and innovative vendors, products and services.

Gartner defines a cool vendor as a company that offers technologies or solutions that are: Innovative, enable users to do things they couldn’t do before; Impactful, have, or will have, business impact (not just technology for the sake of technology); Intriguing, have caught Gartner’s interest or curiosity in approximately the past six months.
The Forrester Wave™: Application Life-Cycle Management, Q4 2012
ALM vendors have acknowledged the inevitability of integration with othercommercial and open source tools. Some vendors provide an application programming interface (API) with few or no prebuilt connectors. Others provide plenty of connectors, with perhaps a weaker API for custom-built integrations. The fact that small companies, such as Kovair has established themselves as third-party providers of ALM connectors is a testament to the weaknesses of the overall ALM market’s integration efforts.

The readers and editors of SD Times have selected Kovair once again in the list of top 100 software companies based on product innovations and industry leadership.
Each year the SD Times 100 recognizes companies, non-commercial organizations, open source projects and other initiatives for their innovation and leadership. It is not a product award. Judged by the editors of SD Times, the SD Times 100 recognizes the top innovators and leaders in multiple software development industry areas. Kovair is included in the list of not only the top 100 such companies but based on its domain focus, in the top 15 ALM companies. Read More→
Criteria and the thought process for the selections
The SD Times 100 looked for companies that have determined a direction that developers followed. Did the company set the industry agenda? Did its products and services advance the software development art? Were its competitors nervously tracking its moves? Were programmers anxiously awaiting its developments? Those qualities mark a leader.
We are very gratified to report that Kovair is mentioned in both these reports as an ALM Vendor along with others. This is a result of our continued efforts and belief in enhancing the ALM ecosystem with our own functional domains as well as our integrations with more than a dozen other best of breed tools
– Bipin Shah, CEO and Chairman – Kovair
When choosing the SD Times 100, we carefully considered each company’s offerings and reputation. We also listened for the “buzz”—how much attention and conversation we’ve heard around the company and its products and technologies—as a sign of leadership within the industry.
