Daptiv Bolsters Leading IT Governance Solution to Deliver Business-Aligned IT Portfolio Management

Enhanced Portfolio Management and IT Quality and Performance Dashboards Enable CIOs to Better Align IT Services With Business Priorities

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - Jun 20, 2011) - Daptiv, the leading provider of on-demand PPM solutions, today announced enhancements to its industry-leading IT governance solution. The new release of Daptiv for IT Governance includes improved IT portfolio management capabilities that support IT service portfolios, quality and performance dashboards, and agile development tool integration.

CIOs are increasingly being tasked to demonstrate value for the money they spend and how their IT programs support business objectives and enable superior business performance. Daptiv's IT governance solution helps CIOs to formulate strategy, set priorities and monitor implementation of IT portfolio investments. By leveraging Daptiv's integration with leading ERP systems, application development, service desk and IT operations tools, organizations can strategically manage IT services, applications and technology infrastructure, and monitor service performance and cost across the IT lifecycle.

Daptiv's IT portfolio management capabilities are complemented by enterprise-class project portfolio management functionality, including project management, resource management, financial management, collaboration and business intelligence capabilities. This ensures alignment with IT planning and strategy and day-to-day execution to enable a "single source of truth" for IT decision-making.

"Enabling a total IT portfolio view of our costs, resources, and business outcomes is critically important for us to make the right strategic decisions for our business," said Susan Klein, senior director, IT PMO, Beam Global Spirits and Wine. "Daptiv's IT governance solution empowers us to make these decisions with confidence and their approach to IT portfolio management is both intuitive and grounded in real-world experience."

The new enhancements included in Daptiv for IT include:

  • Enhanced IT Portfolio Management. In addition to project portfolio management and application portfolio management views, IT can now create and manage IT service portfolios that better align with business-oriented services.
  • IT Quality and Performance Dashboards. New pre-configured reports and dashboards track metrics such as availability, utilization, latency, and maintenance costs. These metrics are available through both application and IT service portfolio views.
  • Agile Development Tool Integration. A new agile development tool connector allows users to integrate real-time project data from "best-of-breed" agile development tools and provides a reporting framework to enable transparency into agile project execution. Daptiv provides standard metrics such as project health, percentage complete, scheduled finish date, budget variance and scope changes in a dashboard that applies to both agile and traditional projects.

"Daptiv's new product suite for IT portfolio management is the direct result of our continued dialogue with hundreds of IT leaders who have been providing recommendations and feedback on our solutions over the past seven years," said John Baldwin, CEO of Daptiv. "Our customer-proven solutions help IT managers demonstrate technology's true value to the organization by integrating the planning, prioritizing and management of the entire IT lifecycle from capital spend and applications management, to services and operations."
