Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 16, 2013
Upland Software, the world’s largest cloud provider of enterprise applications for project, portfolio, and work management, today announced the immediate availability of PowerSteering 10, the latest release of the award winning leading cloud project & portfolio management (PPM) application for top-down program and portfolio management.
PowerSteering is the only cloud PPM application designed as a top-down system. It enables executives in IT, New Product Development, Process Excellence, and PMOs (project management offices) to improve portfolio-level visibility and insight and without requiring the management of granular task and resource details. PowerSteering 10 introduces powerful new portfolio planning tools for understanding impacts and trade-offs when selecting projects, assigning resources, or making in-flight changes. Using the system’s highly configurable Visual Portals and Dashboards, executives can also readily gain insights into their programs, projects & initiatives just by tracking key high-level information, such as important milestones. Indicators & alerts can then be set to empower “management by exception” - highlighting any projects that are off track, over budget, or otherwise out of compliance. The result: improved business decision making and agility without burdening project teams with onerous data entry requirements that reduce productivity and hinder end-user adoption.
The latest release further extends PowerSteering’s class-leading capabilities in portfolio management and analysis by introducing numerous unique enhancements in this area, including:
The PowerSteering 10 release also includes dozens of additional new enhancements in many areas including Administrator Work Templates, API and SOAP Web Services Client Improvements, Oracle JDK 1.7 Support, and many others. The new release was developed from an established customer requirements process including an extensive and successful testing period. Existing PowerSteering customers have already been upgraded to release 10 and are taking advantage of the new capabilities with proven cloud based performance and reliability as well as simple and competitive licensing options.
“The new PowerSteering 10 release takes a giant step forward in portfolio planning capabilities compared to other project and portfolio management software applications,” said Doug Riseberg, PowerSteering General Manager and VP of Client Services for Upland Software. “PowerSteering 10 continues to demonstrate our commitment to provide the ‘Best of Breed’ cloud top-down PPM solution for our clients.”
