After a multi-year transformation effort including several acquisitions and a brand refresh, Changepoint today launched a reimagined platform of built-for-purpose portfolio management solutions to drive strategic alignment across organizations and enable better business outcomes.
The update brings new solutions, capability updates and user experience redesigns that will better enable customers to adapt to changing business priorities using enhanced visual strategic planning tools. This will improve an organization’s ability to align execution of key business objectives with strategic goals. Highlights include the general availability of:
- Changepoint Strategic Portfolio Management (SPM), an extension of the capabilities of Changepoint’s Project Portfolio Management (PPM) and Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) solutions. Changepoint SPM enables project-driven organizations to align projects, resources and execution with strategy using real-time analysis that ties investments to outcomes, evaluates initiatives based on common priorities, and improves cross-functional collaboration and transparency. The net result enables businesses to maintain alignment while increasing business agility as they quickly adapt to changing priorities.
- The 2020 release for Changepoint Services Automation (SA) with reimagined user experiences that now power the entire services engagement lifecycle. With new smart workforce planning capabilities resource allocation will be easily optimized across professional, managed and embedded services organizations.
- A new version of Changepoint Analytics, an embedded analytics platform across the Changepoint solution-base that provides easy-to-use, self-service and visual analytics for business users. Using AI powered by IBM Watson, executive-level dashboards with recommended visualizations provide a visual and natural language user experience empowering intelligent decision making across the business and helping leaders make better decisions, faster.
“Our singular mission has been to help customers achieve better outcomes through effective management of their resources and portfolios of projects, services and applications. We’re now expanding our focus to help them with strategic planning,” explained Changepoint CEO Matt Scheuing. “Customers have a growing need for speed, responsiveness and transparency. Better alignment of resources, projects and execution with strategy is key to enabling this for a business, and visual planning tools will make this work much easier and more successful.”
It’s no secret that businesses are under pressure to transform and be agile to the needs of customers. But the $1.2 trillion IDC expects businesses to spend on digital transformation annually is at risk, especially considering 70 percent of large, strategic change initiatives don’t reach their stated goals according to McKinsey & Company. This generally comes down to human pitfalls – employees aren’t engaged, leaders aren’t providing adequate support and organizations aren’t working cross-functionally. The reality is, it’s hard to keep people aligned and engaged to reach collaborative goals.
Customers can now use Changepoint’s new platform of solutions to transform project, engagement and application portfolios with adaptable, intuitive and intelligent experiences that are designed to keep an organization collaboratively engaged. This enables strategic transformation teams, project management offices, services organizations, and IT leaders to drive change, exceed customer expectations quickly, get the most out of project teams, and deliver more value to the business.
“Changepoint has streamlined our portfolio planning process by providing intuitive, collaborative experiences to visualize our projects, roadmaps and priorities. We can now make quick and informed decisions on resource allocation, in real-time,” said Jon Verson, PMO Director of Wi-Tronix, LLC.
New solutions will be deployed throughout the coming weeks. Visit Changepoint’s website to discover more about its platform and learn how to achieve better business outcomes today.
