SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - Jan 14, 2013) - Daptiv, the on-demand leader in project portfolio management software, today announced that Forrester Research, Inc. has positioned the company as a Leader in its December 2012 report, "The Forrester Wave™: Project/Program Portfolio Management, Q4 2012."
Forrester's 68-criteria evaluation of PPM solutions identifies the 10 most significant PPM vendors, analyzing and scoring them in the context of current market needs. Daptiv was among a short list of companies invited by Forrester to participate in the report based on their criteria, and emerged as a Leader. Daptiv had the highest score in the Market Presence category for both Above The Line and Below The Line solutions.
In its report, Forrester noted several key capabilities that placed Daptiv among the leaders. "These vendors provide robust top-down reporting capabilities. Organizations can perform critical alignment and value-based analysis based upon user-entered information as well as data automatically imported from third-party tools. Each of these vendors supports strategic, project, application, and service portfolios to varying levels."
Furthermore, the report highlights that, "While Daptiv has consistently been a Strong Performer in past evaluations, its investments in analytics, integration, and mobile have pushed the vendor into the Leaders category."
Daptiv's key differentiating factors that help customers in strategic planning and project execution are:
- Support for deeper analytic reporting by offering stronger Business Intelligence capabilities than just standard dashboard views
- Integration with other business applications such as Application Lifecycle Management, Enterprise Resource Planning, and Financial Packages is made straightforward due to its partnership with Pervasive
- Good use of HTML5 to provide solid and consistent mobile and web experiences
- Supported on every browser, Daptiv offers quick-start implementations and flexible configurations
"The increased demand for business agility with limited budgets is dramatically changing the PPM landscape. Organizations will need the flexibility to choose different methodologies depending on the type of project they undertake, while retaining the ability to report on key performance metrics in a unified manner," said John Baldwin, CEO at Daptiv. "We believe this recognition from Forrester reflects the strength of Daptiv's PPM offering and our continued commitment to developing and delivering solutions that will increase efficiency and reduce costs."
