AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Planview® has been positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of the 2014 Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Integrated IT Portfolio Analysis (IIPA) Applications, published November 18, 2014.” This marks the fourth consecutive year the company has placed in the Leaders Quadrant for its Planview Enterprise® product.
According to the Gartner report: “The IIPA software market consists of vendors providing the integration of individual portfolios – for investments, projects, assets and IT services – to present a more holistic story regarding the true state of the IT portfolio. Integrating these views enables IT leaders to see the cost, effort, technical complexity, feasibility and interrelated effects of a proposed IT change or initiative.”¹
Planview Enterprise has native capabilities to manage investment, project, application, services and product portfolios. This integrated portfolio approach helps IT leaders optimize the use of their constrained people and financial resources in support of business goals. The at-a-glance “ribbon” in the product gives IT leaders access to interactive tiles that provide visual, direct access to the metrics, notifications, and analytics that are critical to any portfolio as well as the ability to see across portfolios.
Planview extended these portfolio views to the applications and services portfolios in the most recent release of Planview Enterprise, helping IT leaders make more informed technology and business decisions.
“As the Gartner report states, IT organizations are maturing in their approaches to IIPA, facilitated by software that provides an integrated view of IT silos,” says Patrick Tickle, chief product officer at Planview. “Planview continues to lead the way in helping technology and business leaders understand how a broad range of portfolios – including products, applications, investments, and services – come together to drive business results.”
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).
Regarding the specific criteria for the Leaders Quadrant, the Gartner report continues: “Leading IIPA products can interweave IT portfolios and IT scenarios by identifying the interrelationships and interdependencies among the elements within and across them. Product features of Leaders often include detailed organization, modeling, and what-if planning and other scenario planning to map IT’s planned physical response to directives that are handed down as part of the overall business strategy and the proceeding IT strategy.”
