Gartner, Inc. evaluated Oracle enterprise project portfolio management solutions in two reports recently.
The Gartner MarketScope for IT Project and Portfolio Management Software Applications, published in May 2013, gave Oracle a positive rating.
The IT project and portfolio management (IT PPM) products
included in the Gartner MarketScope address the challenges of portfolio,
program, project management office leaders; program/project managers;
and resource managers. The report says that these groups continue to struggle with selecting IT programs and IT projects, prioritizing
them, executing them at the right time, matching and/or balancing IT
supply with IT demand, monitoring and reporting IT project status and IT
expenditures to date, improving IT project execution efficiency,
proactively addressing emergencies on IT projects, and tackling changes
to the existing and planned IT projects triggered by shifts in business
direction. Read the full Gartner MarketScope for IT Project and Portfolio Management Software Applications report.
Also in May 2013, Gartner named Oracle a Leader in its Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Based IT Project and Portfolio Management Services.
The report noted that “IT project and portfolio management (PPM) leaders
are under extreme pressure to improve the speed, accuracy, and agility
of their project organization, while also managing risks and costs. They
are looking for software solutions that can support these seemingly
conflicting objectives. For years, the IT PPM software market
standardized on on-premises or traditional hosting for deployment of IT
PPM software functionality, but with the continued maturity of the
internet as an enterprise computing platform, on-premises and
traditional hosting have given way to another viable option—cloud-based
IT PPM application services deployment.” Read the full Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Based IT Project and Portfolio Management Services report.
