GenSight Named as a Leader by Independent Research Firm for Portfolio Management Tools for the BT Agenda
March 27, 2015, GenSight®, the provider of an Enterprise Portfolio Management solution, is named as a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Portfolio Management Tools For The [Business Technology] BT Agenda, Q1 2015 report.
The independent report positions GenSight as a leader and gave the company the highest possible score (5 out of 5) for the Portfolio Management criterion in the Current Offering category. It was this score in addition to the highest possible scores also received in the predictive analytics, capability based best practices, and corporate strategy and life cycle support criteria that helped earn GenSight the placement in the Leaders category.
Specifically GenSight was cited as an example of strategic development tools that connect planning to execution: “Unlike traditional project-based planning tools, solutions such as GenSight enable organizations to take cascading goals from strategic planning to build portfolios that are directly traceable back to the strategic plan. Expanded resource and performance reporting enables portfolio managers to capture real-time data to monitor benefits.”
The Forrester Wave™ is Forrester’s evaluation of vendors in a software, hardware, or services market. This report focuses on Project Portfolio Management (PPM) and evaluates the nine top BT portfolio management vendors on the strength of their current offering and their strategy against key criteria. One of the data sources used is customer reference calls to validate product and vendor qualifications.
Selection criteria for this report required vendors to demonstrate a significant focus on cross organizational strategic portfolio management, indicate market expansion with revenue growth exceeding 25% from the previous fiscal year and mindshare among Forrester clients.
