The Forrester Wave™ for Project/Program Portfolio Management 2012 was recently published and HP PPM is thrilled to be ranked a Leader, in the most Strategic position no less!
For strategic portfolio planning, HP PPM’s new Application Portfolio Management capabilities and strategy for Integrated Portfolio Management were specifically called out as highlights. For managing demand and day-to-day work, HP PPM’s continuing integration with HP Application Lifecycle Management to achieve greater visibility into the entire project life cycle, and the “Project Management workhorse” to help break down the walls between developers and project managers, were noted.
If you’re in the market for a PPM tool, you’ll undoubtedly find this report helpful. The Forrester Wave uses 68 evaluation criteria to identify the 10 most significant PPM vendors – and they even give you the scores to compare, perhaps adjusting the weighting to your criteria. Already have a PPM tool? We expect you will still find the report good nighttime reading – Forrester comments on trends and drivers that may give you a different perspective on your existing implementation, and generate areas for your next ‘Return on Investment’ focus.

This year Forrester introduced an Above- and Below-the line concept: Above-the-line tools support strategic planning focused on value, risks, and benefits. Below-the-line tools focus on managing demand and day-to-day work. We think this is a super practical way to describe the domain (you know, when your Mom asks what exactly do you do again?) and could have implications for process design, implementation plans, tool selection, etc. Send us your thoughts on this new definition, and we’ll talk about them in our next blog!
