GenSight Named "Cool Vendor" by Gartner, Inc.

GenSight, a leading provider of Portfolio and Resource Management solutions, has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the Cool Vendors in Program and Portfolio Management, 2014 report by Gartner, Inc., published on May 2nd by Robert Handler, Jim Duggan and Daniel Stang.

GenSight takes an interesting approach to portfolio management, compared to other traditional PPM vendors, by offering a complete solution including Business Process Design, Enterprise Software and Change Management to assist its customers in improving their Portfolio, Resource, Stage-Gate and Project Management capabilities. GenSight employs advanced analytics and data visualization to allow organizations to manage the complexity of the portfolio decision making process, including portfolio optimization and simulation, 3-D bubble charts, portfolio animation and multivariate portfolio models, to arrive at the optimal portfolio mix that will deliver organizational strategic goals, within their resource constraints.

GenSight’s solution ensures that organizational leadership have the right data at hand to answers two very important but often complex questions: 1) Do they have projects in the portfolio to deliver strategic goals and 2) Do they have enough appropriate resources to execute the portfolio. Research shows that these two questions are the principle reasons why smart managers find it difficult to make the bests decisions regarding project selection, and why organizations have been losing maturity in strategic decision making, while gaining maturity in project execution.

“We consider our inclusion in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner confirmation of our ability to align our client organizations around a systematic approach to strategic choice and resource optimization,” said Michael Menard, President and Co-founder of GenSight. “We continue to innovate while we execute on our product roadmap. With the recent release of GenSight’s Version 8.5 Enterprise Software, we have delivered a truly revolutionary product that is changing the face of the Portfolio Management industry, and has further enhanced our market position.”

GenSight has been a leading provider of a leading provider of Portfolio and Resource Management solutions across industries, including High-Technology, Consumer Goods, Life Science; including Pharmaceutical, Bio-Technology and Medical Device & Diagnostics, Chemical Manufacturing, and Energy. GenSight’s approach has been applied to New Product Development Portfolio Management (NPDP), Sustainability Portfolio Management, Information Technology Portfolio Management (IT PPM), Corporate Giving Portfolio Management and Business Portfolio Management to name a few. Additionally, GenSight is the fastest growing top-down portfolio management provider and is ranked #1, #2, or #3 by all industry analysts.

The explosion of connected devices / sensors is creating an ever-expanding set of new and valuable data. In parallel the emerging capability of Big Data technologies to store, access, analyze, and react to this data is producing changes in business models under the umbrella of the Internet of Things (IoT).

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add sc...
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
Data-intensive companies that strive to gain insights from data using Big Data analytics tools can gain tremendous competitive advantage by deploying data-centric storage. Organizations generate large volumes of data, the vast majority of which is unstructured. As the volume and velocity of this unstructured data increases, the costs, risks and usability challenges associated with managing the unstructured data (regardless of file type, size or device) increases simultaneously, including end-to-...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more.

The excitement around the possibilities enabled by Big Data is being tempered by the daunting task of feeding the analytics engines with high quality data on a continuous basis. As the once distinct fields of data integration and data management increasingly converge, cloud-based data solutions providers have emerged that can buffer your organization from the complexities of this continuous data cleansing and management so that you’re free to focus on the end goal: actionable insight.
Between the compelling mockups and specs produced by your analysts and designers, and the resulting application built by your developers, there is a gulf where projects fail, costs spiral out of control, and applications fall short of requirements.

Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data th...
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon...
