Earlier today we announced that we have signed a definitive agreement to acquire Tasktop, a pioneer in Value Stream Management (VSM). The combination of Planview and Tasktop enables business transformations that are faster, more efficient, and delivered with more confidence. We expect this union to drive even more value and extend more capabilities to you, our customers.
At Planview, our mission is to build the future of connected work – empowering our customers to accelerate the achievement of what matters most. Tasktop’s capabilities and expertise in VSM will complement Planview’s position as a leader in Strategic Portfolio Management, Project Portfolio Management, Enterprise Agile, Product Development, and Professional Services Automation. A growing number of digital transformations are being enabled by software development and delivery. Together, we can help our customers connect the business of software delivery by accelerating time to market, improving efficiency with unlocked capacity, and driving investment confidence, ultimately enabling you to transform your organization faster and with more confidence.
Existing agreements between Planview and our customers are not impacted by this deal, nor should you experience any change in our existing partnership, service, or support. Our product strategy and roadmap remain the same.
Subject to customary regulatory approval, we expect this acquisition to close mid-Summer 2022 and will provide you with more details in the coming weeks. Following the close of the acquisition, the Tasktop team will join Planview and Tasktop’s founder and CEO, Mik Kersten, will join the Planview executive team as Chief Technology Officer.
Planview and Tasktop have been strategic partners for more than eight years, and this is a natural evolution of our existing relationship - we look forward to formally welcoming the Tasktop team into the Planview family. If you have immediate questions, please reach out to your Account Executive or Customer Success Manager. Thank you for your continued support.
