Genius Inside Rated as 'Promising' Company in Leading Analyst Firm's Project and Portfolio Management Report

MarketScope Survey Finds Resilience, Steady Demand for PPM Solutions in Slow Economy

MONTREAL and GENEVA--(Marketwire - Jul 12, 2011) - Project management solutions provider Genius Inside has received a "promising" rating in Gartner Inc.'s 2011 MarketScope report for Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) applications.

The MarketScope, published by Daniel B. Stang on June 13, 2011, describes "promising" companies as "a mix of PPM vendors and products -- older, more established vendors, as well as newcomers with innovative thinking, lighter PPM footprints, interesting development strategies, or simplified PPM process automation overlooked by more established vendors in the market. Vendors rated as promising focus on different nuances associated with PPM environments." The report rated the entire PPM market as "strong positive," which means it has demonstrated a marked resilience, having grown when most enterprise software markets receded during the global economic crisis. MarketScope evaluated vendors across a broad range of criteria, including: customer experience, product strategy, product functionality, business model, innovation, market understanding and market responsiveness.

"It's very rewarding to be associated with the companies that are advancing the PPM market," said Christophe Borlat, managing director sales and marketing at Genius Inside. "We are an established company, but we're still innovating for our customers."

Genius Inside's Genius Project family of PPM solutions enables organizations to manage and prioritize product ideas; ensure that the best resources are working on the most promising projects; and facilitate on-time project delivery.
