With a presence around the world, Planview®, a leader in enterprise-wide portfolio and resource management (PPM), reaffirms their commitment to further expand its presence in Australia through education and regional marketing efforts. Planview is sponsoring several local events to educate companies about the benefits of portfolio and resource management software as a means to improve performance and inspire innovation in IT.
Earlier this year, Gartner rated Planview a “Strong Positive,” the highest rating possible, in the 2013 MarketScope for IT Project and Portfolio Management Software Applications. “Providers receiving a Strong Positive rating in this MarketScope demonstrate a strong global market presence, depth and breadth of IT PPM functionality and integration to complementary IT software systems, and a strong commitment to cloud hosting that required these providers to make significant internal changes to accommodate a new business model without disrupting current operations.” ¹
“The Australian market is growing rapidly, and with businesses striving to improve processes, increase visibility, strengthen their brands, and drive innovation, we are making solid investments to inform companies about the benefits PPM offers,” said David Davies, APAC regional director at Planview. “With our continued commitment to the portfolio management discipline as well as to the region, we are excited to move forward with new business opportunities in this area and create new relationships.”
