The company also gains a "positive" rating in the MarketScape for Project and Portfolio Management Applications; is included in the PPM Market Universe: PPM for New Product Development Roundup.

Planisware™, the leading global provider of world-class project and portfolio management (PPM) solutions for new product development organizations was recently included in three of Gartner’s 2011 Market Universe reports: Magic Quadrant for Integrated IT Portfolio Analysis Applications, MarketScope for Project and Portfolio Management Applications, and PPM Market Universe: PPM for New Product Development Market Roundup. These reports provide an analysis and evaluation of vendors within the PPM industry worldwide.

Named a “Challenger” in the Magic Quadrant, based on completeness of vision and ability to execute, Planisware is known for the solution’s strong portfolio management capabilities and has made great strides in: features that enhance communication between the IT PMO and application management, APM support that includes application roadmapping, and its native service breakdown structure that defines IT services and maps their underlying components.

In addition to Planisware's placement in the Magic Quadrant, the company also appeared in two other studies evaluating varying capabilities of PPM tools: MarketScope for Project and Portfolio Management Applications and the PPM Universe: PPM for New Product Development Market Roundup. The solution received a "positive" rating in the MarketScope, which aligns with Planisware’s reputed ability to support a variety of project environments, strong offering strategy, and overall high quality of product and service, and was included among the list of PPM vendors that met the criteria to be referenced for the New Product Development Market Roundup.

"What this year's assessments say to us is that Planisware is among a small, elite group of solutions that extends the comprehensive feature set necessary to support the IT market," said Pierre Demonsant, CEO and founder of Planisware. "Additionally, we believe our inclusion in publications centered on NPD and PPM applications in general illustrates our strength on the business side and our ability to deliver solutions that empower organizations across several different types of industries."
