Enterprise PPM Functionality, ‘Just Right’ Configuration and Scalability Highlighted

Cambridge, Massachusetts (April 16, 2008) – PowerSteering, the only On-Demand, Enterprise PPM software used to manage, Six Sigma, Information Technology, New Product Development and other strategic initiatives, today announced its coverage in Forrester’s “SaaS-Based Tools Lower Barriers to PPM Success” report, published April 10, 2008.

The report maintains that “flexibility and lower barriers to entry enable project portfolio management (PPM) across maturity levels.” It states “Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions have emerged as a viable option that boasts many benefits: lower cost, faster implementation, quicker time-to-value, no need for infrastructure investment or maintenance, and lower risk of adoption failure.”

“We’re very pleased to see the growing acceptance of SaaS software among CIOs who have become disenchanted with traditional installed PPM software that often gets relegated to time tracking only,” noted Stephen Sharp, PowerSteering’s Chief Executive Officer. “As the only SaaS Enterprise PPM provider with a true enterprise customer base, we’re delighted that Forrester recognized PowerSteering’s rich functionality, and ‘just right’ configuration.”

The report also acknowledged PowerSteering’s “easy-to-understand business-case-driven project creation, which enables informed prioritization…impressive list of customers…and ability to extend beyond IT into new product development, merger integration and Six Sigma.”
