With the upcoming change in administration, agencies must be better prepared to rationalize and justify their near and long term investment plans, and the portfolio management discipline provides the mechanism to do so.
Herndon, VA and Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 5, 2007
DLT Solutions, Inc., a value-added reseller of industry-leading IT products and services, and Planview, Inc., the leading independent provider of portfolio management solutions, announced a new strategic partnership through which DLT Solutions will offer Planview IT investment portfolio and project management software solutions to all U.S. federal government agencies through a variety of procurement vehicles held by DLT, including the GSA Schedule (#GS-35F-4543G) contract.
"DLT Solutions recognizes that more and more federal IT professionals are faced with the challenges of reducing the cost and complexities of managing their enterprise, while ensuring alignment with federal directives and regulations," said Rick Marcotte, president & CEO of DLT Solutions. "With the addition of Planview, and the Planview Enterprise product line to our technology solutions, we are able to offer agencies new and better ways to address these challenges with tools that provide superior visibility into IT investment cost, schedule and performance.”
Planview Enterprise combines portfolio management software and proven best practices to give agencies visibility into how their IT investments align across the select, control and evaluate phases as prescribed under CPIC, while also adhering to the guidelines established under OMB, FEA and other regulatory requirements.
"Most agencies in the federal government have some initiative related to portfolio management, and several federal laws and regulations are effectively requiring portfolio management processes to be implemented,” said Mark Homrich, Vice President Business Development. "With the upcoming change in administration, agencies must be better prepared to rationalize and justify their near and long term investment plans, and the portfolio management discipline provides the mechanism to do so.”
The fully integrated Planview portfolio management discipline for optimized planning, execution and IT investment management with an award winning government market leader such as DLT, will provide federal public sector IT organizations with unparalleled breadth, technical-expertise, and procurement options for managing IT from the perspective of the enterprise.
Furthermore, the partnership unites two industry-leading organizations. Planview has been recognized as a market leader by key analyst firms, and DLT was recently recognized by two elite government business award programs - the Federal Times Top 100 Contractors and the VARBusiness Top 100 Government Integrators.
