Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) December 21, 2009
PowerSteering Software is pleased to announce that has been recognized as a Leader among Project Portfolio Management vendors in a new report from Forrester Research, Inc..
“The Forrester Wave™: Project Portfolio Management, Q4 2009” (December 2009) evaluated 14 vendors against 80-plus criteria. Forrester assessed the relative strengths and weaknesses of each vendor under two distinct scenarios: one for managing internal IT-focused portfolios, and the other for managing business-focused portfolios. PowerSteering emerged as a Leader in both areas.
“PowerSteering has been delivering a solid PPM offering that offers an effective combination of feature strength and low barrier of entry,” observed the report’s authors. “PowerSteering has focused on bringing SaaS to the enterprise and is equally popular with both business-driven and IT-driven customers.”
Forrester’s rigorous evaluation process included briefings, live product demonstrations, and multiple customer references. Among the areas where PowerSteering received a best-in-class score of 5 (on a 1-to-5 scale) were Top-down investment planning, Product-lifecycle management, Resource management, Analysis, Global usability, Integration, and advanced functionality for Portfolio management and Financial management.
“We are delighted to be recognized as a PPM leader by Forrester following such a thorough and competitive assessment,” remarked Stephen Sharp, CEO of PowerSteering Software. “We believe these results confirm PowerSteering is executing on its vision of providing a uniquely versatile ‘Enterprise PPM’ solution that can address the distinct needs of managing both IT and business-driven portfolios.”
