Reading, Berks — June 18, 2008 — Planview, the leading independent provider of enterprise-wide portfolio management solutions, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the leaders quadrant in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for IT Project and Portfolio Management1. The annual report analyzes vendors and assesses product and service offerings within the project and portfolio management (PPM) industry. According to Gartner, the benefits of the PPM discipline in IT organizations and beyond have become apparent and technology providers continue to seek ways to support it with software and services. The full report may be viewed at www.planview.com/magic.

“Planview is proud to be positioned in the Leaders Quadrant in project and portfolio management solutions in the 2008 Magic Quadrant,” said Greg Gilmore, president and chief operating officer of Planview. “Our single focus and commitment to the portfolio management market allows us to uniquely partner with our customers to meet their business challenges.”

To evaluate the vendors, Gartner conducted surveys and vendor briefings, reviewed product demonstrations, spoke with vendor references, and ultimately positioned the PPM vendors based on their "ability to execute" and "completeness of vision.” Vendors were evaluated based on key categories including product/service, viability, track record, customer experience, operations, marketing, sales and offering strategy, business model, innovation, and geographic strategy.

Planview offers the broadest set of portfolio management applications, from strategic planning to execution in project and services portfolio management. In the first half of 2008, Planview introduced the latest version of its flagship portfolio management suite, Planview Enterprise 9.2, featuring Insight Analytics and new Planview OpenSuite integrations to BMC Atrium CMDB, the open CMDBf standard and Microsoft SharePoint.
