Planview Named a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Integrated IT Portfolio Analysis Applications
For the third consecutive year, Planview® has been positioned in the Leaders quadrant of the 2013 Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Integrated IT Portfolio Analysis (IIPA) Applications.”
According to the Gartner report, “The IIPA software market helps IT leaders link, monitor, analyse and communicate their activities on a single portfolio-level software platform, providing CIOs and other executives with holistic views of the IT portfolio while IT plans and executes in response to business and IT strategies.”¹
Gartner evaluates vendors on two main criteria: ability to execute (product or service, overall viability, customer experience, operations and sales/marketing execution) and completeness of vision (innovation, business model, market understanding, and having a strong strategy for product, marketing, sales, geography and vertical/industry).
Planview Enterprise® has native capabilities to manage investment, project, application, services, and product portfolios. This integrated portfolio approach helps IT leaders optimise the use of their constrained people and financial resources in support of business goals.
The newest version of Planview Enterprise features a new user experience and navigation that makes it easier to view and share metrics across one or more portfolios. Users receive tailored, line-of-sight access to the business drivers for any portfolio and an integrated visualisation capability to create charts and graphs of real-time data.
“Historically project portfolios and application portfolios have been managed as stovepipes,” says Patrick Tickle, executive vice president of products at Planview. “The point of Integrated IT Portfolio Analysis is to cut across the silos and understand the comprehensive IT portfolio and its business impact. Like Gartner, we believe this approach has great potential for our clients.”
