Planview has experienced significant momentum in Asia Pacific region helping organizations leverage portfolio management to weather tough economy

Financially speaking, the implementation cost of Planview Enterprise solution equated to a mere ¾ of 1% of the estimated $50 million project portfolio investment over the following five years

Planview®, the leading independent provider of enterprise-wide portfolio management solutions, will speak, exhibit and sponsor PMOZ, the leading Project Management Conference in Australia, 10 - 12 August 2009. Simon Wild, Business Process Consultant, David Davis, Asia Pacfic Business Development Manager, will speak about balancing resource and financial capabilities with demand in the Effective Enterprise PMO track on Wednesday, 12 August at 13:30.

The company will also exhibit in Booth #28 of the National Convention Centre Canberra, where they will showcase a case study from Cuscal, a leading provider of wholesale and transactional banking services to specialist retail financial institutions in Australia. "Financially speaking, the implementation cost of Planview Enterprise solution equated to a mere ¾ of 1% of the estimated $50 million project portfolio investment over the following five years," said Charles Lassiter, portfolio manager at Cuscal. "The payback period was estimated at less than two years and ROI over 160%. I'd call that a strong financial return on investment."

Planview has achieved significant momentum in 2008 and 2009 within the Asia Pacific region. Tough economic conditions have seen organizations focus on ensuring that every dollar and hour spent is contributing to the right business initiatives. As a result, there has been more interest in project and portfolio management, and a sharp rise in the number of customers purchasing Planview in the past six months, particularly in state government and the financial services sectors. "In many organizations the threat of recession has sharpened the minds and desire to look at portfolio management solutions, and we are seeing a large increase in opportunities and new customers" says David Davies, Business Development Manager for Planview Asia Pacific.

About the Presentation
Traditional project management techniques alone are no longer enough to effectively manage today's fast moving, technology-oriented service organizations. To remain relevant, the PMO must go beyond project or even portfolio management to embrace changes in demand as it relates to capacity - both organizational and financial - across all types of work and throughout the enterprise. Only then can an organization achieve a total view of the people, funding, and work needed to meet objectives.

Wild and Davies will be speaking on the subject of balancing resource and financial capabilities with demand, and will discuss the basic relationships of supply and demand in an enterprise portfolio environment. Their presentation will look at how inbound demand can be managed regardless of work type, how to take a broader view of managing resource and financial capacities, and how the specific dynamics behind today's evolving business environment impacts the supply and demand equation.
