Planforge, a leading vendor of integrated project and portfolio management solutions, has been selected by leading IT analyst firm Gartner as one of the companies included in their June 2012 "Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Based PPM Services". The new research report evaluating vendors was published by Daniel Stang and Robert Handler and is available for purchase from Gartner's website.
Planforge focuses on integrated and easy-to-use project management solutions that are used by both IT people and non-technical knowledge workers. While originally only providing a SaaS hub in Europe, Planforge recently also launched a new US-based cloud infrastructure that is intended for customers in the Americas. Planforge's development focus for 2012 is to further enhance portfolio and risk management, an even tighter integration of resource management functionality, and two-way syncing with Atlassian's JIRA. In addition, Planforge plans to add a number of practical social project management features as well as integration with Confluence later this year.
Planforge Enterprise Server and Planforge Enterprise Cloud are available for on premise and on-demand/SaaS deployment respectively. Planforge is licensed on a per user and role model providing optional modules such as risk management, program management, a formal project controlling-cycle, and agile planning based on the Scrum framework. Besides being known as an easy-to-use project management solution that can be deployed with little effort, Planforge is also one of the few PPM systems offering rich, integrated resource management functionalities.
"Being named as a 'Visionary' in Gartner's latest research effort makes us being a small software vendor very proud," said Gerald Aquila, founder and CEO of Planforge . "Together with our new HTML5 user interface we are thrilled to make it even easier for users to get started with 'real' project management in the cloud."
