Top 10 Project/Portfolio Management Systems

The Forrester Wave: Project/Program Portfolio Management, Q4 2012, "How The Top 10 Providers Stack Up in a Newly Divided Market", by Margo Visitacion and Phil Murphy (December 20, 2012) was a very timely and useful read. Margo and Phil well capture our environment: organizations migrating through strategic analysis, supported by portfolios that are comprised of agile and waterfall projects.

They analyzed PPM (project/program portfolio management) tools that fall above the dividing line "Strategic Planning" and below the line "Work Execution". Margo and Phil highlighted the vendors that shine in both areas and commented on their wide range of capabilities. The reader will see how there is a dividing line in PPM tools and the need to consider a layered approach to mirror organizations that adopt multiple management practices.
