Daptiv and Customer Interoute to Present at 2008 Project & Portfolio Summit Europe

Europe's Largest Network Provider Interoute to Share Insight From Project Management Selection Process and Business Impact

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - December 1, 2008) - Daptiv, the on-demand leader in collaborative business software, will participate in the upcoming Project & Portfolio Summit, December 3-5 in Vienna, Austria. The Project & Portfolio Summit is the premier event in Europe for business decision makers interested in understanding the impact of better portfolio management practices. Daptiv will be delivering a case study with customer Interoute, Europe's leading telecommunications and network provider with the largest network in Europe.

Interoute will present lessons learned from evaluating two dozen project portfolio management vendors in order to find a solution that would allow its distributed team to collaborate more efficiently. Usability, rapid implementation and Web delivery were all crucial requirements for Interoute, with time savings in project coordination as the primary driver.

"We were looking for an easy-to-use, easy-to-implement, on-demand solution. Daptiv satisfied all of those requirements with significant additional benefits," said Madonna Swanson, PMO program manager at Interoute. "We use Dynamic Applications within Daptiv PPM to instantly create custom apps to capture virtually any type of information, without needing to know anything about IT or coding. Daptiv's Work Intelligence capabilities have been invaluable, allowing us to easily schedule automated, real-time reports on any information within the Daptiv system in a fraction of the time it took with previous methods. Collaborating with people in Germany, Sweden, London and Prague is now so simple with Daptiv, it's like we're all in the same room."

"We have learned so much, I'm sure the Interoute experience will be helpful for other organizations going through the vendor selection process," said Swanson. "I've developed and managed many business integration programs before and never has it been so easy to coordinate all the cross dependencies between the projects as it has with Daptiv. I only wish I had Daptiv five years ago."

The Project & Portfolio Summit 2008 brings executive-level IT and corporate decision makers together with a dynamic range of vendors to discuss PPM product and service solutions and hear presentations led by Gartner analysts and other industry experts. During the three-day event, the focus will be on strategic business interaction between vendors and decision makers via private boardroom appointments, the insight and expertise of industry-leading Gartner analysts, and a host of networking events.
