Sponsored by Businesswire

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
