Sciforma 4.0 Software Earns "Positive" Rating by Leading Analyst Firm

(January 11, 2012)

LOS GATOS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/11/12 -- Sciforma Corporation, the Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) software innovator, today announced that its Sciforma 4.0 project and portfolio management (PPM) software has earned a Positive rating by Gartner. The Gartner report, "MarketScope for Project and Portfolio Management Applications," examined 30 key players in the PPM market. The research included analysis of PPM software products that can support many different PPM scenarios, including, but not limited to, PPM for IT departments.

According to Gartner, vendors that receive a Positive rating demonstrate strength in performance. Customers can expect a continuation of planned investments, and potential customers should consider this vendor as a viable choice for strategic or tactical investments. The criteria factored into the report include customer experience; product time-to-value as it relates to deployment, ease of use and adoption; pricing and contracts; product innovation and functionality that pushes the market in new directions; knowledge of the PPM market and responsiveness to the evolving marketplace. Sciforma's Positive rating is among the evaluations of other well-known vendors, such as Oracle and CA Technologies.

Additionally, Sciforma is included in three other Gartner reports:

  • "PPM Market Universe: PPM for New Product Development Market Roundup, 2011" -- This report details the latest trends in PPM for NPD and product management, and provides a list of vendors operating in the space.
