London – 22nd May 2003: PlanView, the leader in integrated portfolio, project and resource management and processes web software is the only vendor to receive “strong functionality” across all categories of comparison in Giga Information Group’s recent report on project portfolio management (PPM).

The report Processes and Tools: The Nuts and Bolts of Project Portfolio Management by analyst Margo Visitacion, covers the 14 top PPM vendor's tools in its comparison. The tools are assessed for the most vital functions required for a successful PPM implementation including: inventory, tactical analytics, strategic analytics, integrated budgeting, resource forecasting, graphic reporting, configurable metrics, integrated PM planning, and integrated methodology.

The report also provides advice on getting the most benefit from PPM, and the process of PPM.

According to Margo Visitacion she states, Giga believes that companies placing equal or stronger emphasis on PPM will reap greater benefits, with cost savings of 25 per cent to 45 per cent, by reducing redundant work, making better informed decisions and allocating resources more efficiently.

Commenting on the report, Andrew Miller, Managing Director UK & Ireland said:
“Giga’s findings are testament to PlanView’s vision. Our portfolio management solution gives managers accurate information to help them prioritise work, identify resource capacity, quickly re-deploy resources, optimise return on investments, and support investment decision making.”
