Promising vendors are a mix of PPM vendors and products… with innovative thinking, lighter PPM footprints, interesting development strategies, or simplified PPM process automation overlooked by more established vendors in the market.
Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) August 11, 2011
Automation Centre (http://www.Acentre.com), award-winning developer of TrackerSuite.Net (http://www.TrackerSuite.Net), received a “Promising” rating from Gartner Inc. in its recent report, “MarketScope for Project and Portfolio Management Applications.”
Gartner Inc., a premier information technology research and advisory company that delivers technology related insight to CIOs and senior IT leadership, developed this MarketScope report based on the current Project Portfolio Management software market, and how solutions within it support various scenarios for PPM, including those experienced by IT departments.
This report is intended for use by prospective PPM and Project Office software users to review vendors supporting processes for managing projects, resources and project portfolios. Its evaluation criteria included: customer experience, offering strategy, the product and/or services delivered, the organization’s business model and history of innovation, market awareness and responsiveness, and finally the track record of the organization.
According to Gartner, “… Promising vendors are a mix of PPM vendors and products — older, more established vendors, as well as newcomers with innovative thinking, lighter PPM footprints, interesting development strategies, or simplified PPM process automation overlooked by more established vendors in the market.”
“We are very pleased to receive a 'Promising' rating in this MarketScope report,” said Steven Birchfield of Automation Centre. “The marketplace for Web based / SaaS solutions for Projects and IT has exploded over the last several years, and to be recognized by Gartner as one of fifteen 'Promising' contenders within such a competitive market is not only an accomplishment, but we also believe it is assurance that our company’s vision is correct and that our product development is moving in the right direction.”
