on Tuesday, June 4, 2019 I San Francisco (CA), United States I Press Release

Planisware recognized for completeness of vision and ability to execute.

Planisware, a leading global provider of Project and Product Portfolio Management software solutions for new product development (NPD), engineering, and IT organizations, announced today that it has again been positioned in the Leaders quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Project and Portfolio Management by Gartner, Inc.*

Planisware’s latest placement has advanced in both execution ability and completeness of vision as compared to last year’s evaluation. A complimentary copy of the full report from Gartner is available here.

Planisware’s products and services are evolving quickly, including through its recent acquisitions of Network Quality Intelligence (NQI) and b-software. NQI’s Orchestra application adds a cloud-based, Collaborative PPM (C-PPM) product to the Planisware product line, supporting collaborative teams in agile organizations. In addition to addressing the C-PPM use case, Orchestra will bring Planisware to more IT PPM users.

Both Planisware Enterprise and Planisware Orchestra offer tailored solutions for NPD, Project Control for Engineering, and IT organizations. SaaS has become the preferred delivery option for most new Planisware customers. To support this transition, Planisware acquired its managed services partner, b-software and upgraded their SaaS hosting strategy.  

“As of 2018, Planisware has direct ownership of all of our SaaS infrastructure,” according to Pierre Demonsant, co-founder and CEO of Planisware.  “This dramatically reduces the time required to address client issues and changes, making our cloud offering one of the most adaptable on the market. We also invested in a redesign of our user experience across both products,” noted Mr. Demonsant. “The newly streamlined and intuitive UX/UI maximizes the benefit customers derive from the powerful tools in our solutions.  We believe that Gartner’s positioning of Planisware in the 2019 Leaders quadrant for PPM affirms the impact of our strategic moves and reflects the continued strength and versatility of our offerings in a rapidly evolving market.”

Gartner’s report evaluated 17 companies on 15 criteria in the PPM market. According to the report, “Continuous delivery is driving more PPM leaders to connect aligned strategic business investments with diversified, changing delivery focused on time to value. This Magic Quadrant evaluates PPM providers offering technology to support these endeavors.”

Planisware’s PPM software supports business processes across the enterprise, from strategy to planning to execution. Planisware is used by hundreds of thousands of users worldwide across a variety of major industries, including consumer packaged goods, IT, engineering, automotive, aerospace and defense, high-tech, chemical manufacturing, life sciences, and energy.
