Los Gatos, CA (July 13, 2009). Gartner, the leading provider of research and analysis on the global IT industry, named Sciforma a PPM “Visionary” company. This announcement came in Gartner’s recently-released Magic Quadrant report on IT Project and Portfolio Management products. Altogether, these well-known Magic Quadrant evaluations help Gartner clients understand the relative positions of all vendors in a given market.
“We believe Gartner recognizing Sciforma as a PPM ‘Visionary’ acknowledges that we have moved far beyond our roots as just another software company,” Sciforma CEO Yann Le Bihan said. “Our mission is to provide customers with a complete solution encompassing technology, service, and support, while making it so powerful and compelling that, afterwards, they cannot imagine doing business without us.”
According to Gartner, “visionaries seek to enable PPM broadly as a business process, with IT processes and skill sets being only one area addressed… Completeness of Vision ratings can reflect innovative approaches in areas such as resource performance management, pipeline analysis, and preconfigured (but tailorable) portals for a variety of enterprise roles… Size of a visionary and financial viability may be compensated by innovative features and functions, as well as more-direct and/or responsive customer care and some influence over future product development.”
