Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 18, 2014
Upland Software, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based enterprise work management applications, today announced its PowerSteering product for top-down program and portfolio management has been recognized as an Innovator for the third consecutive year in Info-Tech Research Group’s “Vendor Landscape for Enterprise Project Portfolio Management.”
Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscape reports recognize outstanding vendors in the technology marketplace. Assessing vendors by the strength of their offering and their strategy for the enterprise, Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscapes pay tribute to the contribution of exceptional vendors in a particular category.
The Enterprise Project Portfolio Management Vendor Landscape evaluated eight competitors and focused on those vendors that offer broad capabilities across multiple platforms and that have a strong market presence and/or reputational presence among large-sized enterprises. “PowerSteering is a well-rounded SaaS solution suited to IT PMOs, product development, and process excellence,” Info-Tech Research Group observed in the report. “Consider PowerSteering PPM if your organization is concerned with team adoption and accurate management of all work. With role-based UIs to drive familiarity and integration with APM and ITSM, PowerSteering's solution is more likely to be adopted and therefore contain current information.”
In addition to being named an Innovator, PowerSteering received the highest possible scores for Product Features and Vendor Strategy, and was recognized as an “Exemplary Performer” for its support of Portfolio Independence, defined in the report as the "Ability to conduct portfolio-level project planning and status reporting without team adoption to maintain timesheet and task data."
With this portfolio-level focus, PowerSteering brings a flexible, cost-effective PPM solution to businesses, allowing them to better manage a large number of projects and initiatives without requiring granular tracking of time, task, and resource details. Within an organization, there are often multiple portfolios, programs and projects that are managed by different departments, creating a challenge for executives and staff tasked with keeping up with it all. PowerSteering helps provide visibility into these efforts all in one place, allowing for optimized resource allocation, streamlined reporting and analysis, and better decision making. Combining the robust functionality & integration capabilities demanded by global organizations with the cost and speed-to-value benefits of cloud delivery and a high level of flexibility, it offers the capability required to manage programs, projects, investments, and resources throughout the enterprise.
"We are pleased to once again be recognized by Info-Tech Research Group for our innovative approach to Enterprise PPM,” stated Doug Riseberg, PowerSteering General Manager and Vice President of Client Services for Upland Software. "With this and other recent analyst accolades, we are continuing to see PowerSteering being recognized as a leading cloud solution for enterprise project portfolio management."
