Forrester evaluated 14 project portfolio management (PPM) vendors using 80-plus criteria and found that CA, HP, Planview, Oracle, and SAP led the pack because of versatile offerings combined with strong product and corporate focus. Differentiation is elusive in this mature market, making customer selection priorities more about value, partnership, and flexible implementation offerings. Vendors Microsoft, Planisware, PowerSteering, GenSight, and Métier all are showing individual strengths in key areas of methodology, strategic analysis, and customer support, while AtTask and Daptiv are well positioned to deliver high value for a reasonable cost. Compuware and Serena Software possess functional strength but would benefit from increased corporate focus to deliver the full value that they have in their solutions.
