Gartner Recognizes Clarizen as a Leader in 2015 Cloud-Based IT Project and Portfolio Management Services, Worldwide

Evaluation Based on Ability to Execute, Completeness of Vision

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - May 27, 2015) -  Clarizen, the leader in enterprise work collaboration software, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Based IT Project and Portfolio Management Services, Worldwide. After evaluating the field of project management software vendors, Gartner analysts placed Clarizen in the Leaders quadrant based on ability to execute and completeness of vision.

According to the report: "Demand for IT PPM software continues to grow. This is due in part to an increased pace of change, as well as a change in the nature of change, driven by digitalization." The report notes: "Digitalization, however, is not exclusive to IT. It is business, and it crosses siloes, be they within or between organizations."

The report also states: "Organizations are simultaneously demanding greater project collaboration capabilities to deal with more challenging projects and improved portfolio analytics to better manage portfolio risk."

"Gartner's designation as a 'leader' is an important milestone for Clarizen. We believe it reflects our mission to help enterprise customers continuously innovate and execute against moving targets, to get work done faster," said Avinoam Nowogrodski, CEO, Clarizen. "We've worked diligently to build Clarizen as an extensible, enterprise-grade, collaborative work management platform to help our global customers deliver efficiency and transparency in their organizations."
