Daptiv Survey Finds Resource Management Is the Top Business Challenge for Senior Executives

67% of Senior Executives Identified Prioritizing Work to Fit Available Resource Capacity as Their Biggest Business Challenge

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Jun 18, 2013) - Daptiv, the leader in on-demand project portfolio management software, today announced the findings of a survey it conducted at the Gartner PPM and IT Governance Summit from May 20-22, 2013. Approximately 100 senior IT executives took the Daptiv survey, which was conducted to gauge and analyze the key business challenges faced by organizations in today's economy.

While 67% of respondents considered resource management as their top business challenge, 28% of them found it difficult to justify the value delivered by the Project Management Office. 22% stated that keeping track of time and money leakages was a concern. Only 5% considered delivering change without overburdening their staff as their main issue, which can likely be attributed to their usage of PPM software and resulting benefits.

"Gartner's PPM and IT Governance Summit is the premier event for IT executives and PPM practitioners, and their opinions and voices are an excellent barometer and representation of the market at large," said John Baldwin, CEO at Daptiv. "The results of this survey demonstrate that it is more important than ever for organizations to select the right PPM solution that allows them to not only address their resource management challenges, but also has the capability to support them with strategic planning, project execution, performance monitoring, and reporting."

Project Management Offices are increasingly seen as custodians of the resource management process within organizations, and this is validated by another study conducted by pmsolutions research -- "The State of the PMO 2012." The study looked at a broad spectrum of companies across the globe and found that the number one priority for the PMOs is to "Improve Resource Planning and Forecasting Process." Pointing towards similar findings, both the Daptiv survey and the pmsolutions' study reveal that overcoming resource management challenges will be vital for PMOs to justify their value in the future.
