TORONTO, Sept. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Changepoint, a leading provider of project portfolio management (PPM) solutions, today announced it will unveil the integration between Daptiv PPM, Changepoint's leading on-demand PPM solution, and BMC Software's Remedy IT Service Management (ITSM) solutions, at BMC Engage in Las Vegas, NV on Sept. 8-11, 2015. Daptiv PPM's customer-driven integration with BMC's Remedy solutions brings together best-of-breed software solutions to empower businesses to strategically prioritize and execute projects. Combined, these technologies enable customers to streamline communication between users of both systems to eliminate repetitive data entry while increasing efficiency and accuracy.
BMC Software, the global leader in software solutions for IT, named Daptiv PPM its preferred PPM solution in March 2014. Changepoint has since integrated Daptiv PPM with Remedy to create two-way enablement that allows users to create, assign, and manage tasks within one product while also sending and receiving status reports from either. This comprehensive solution leverages the strongest capabilities of each solution to support a full spectrum of project management and ITSM processes, such as service, change, and release requests while providing complete transparency to users on either end.
"Since forging our partnership with BMC Software, we've dedicated ourselves to building and maintaining a one-of-a kind integration that provides both sets of customers with unmatched PPM and ITSM support and capabilities," said Jim Shulkin, Vice President of Marketing at Changepoint. "This integration answers the PPM needs of BMC Remedy customers, providing users exclusive benefits that no other ITSM solution can deliver."
Daptiv PPM and BMC Remedy customers benefit from a lineup of features designed to increase efficient and accurate data entry, streamline communication and processes, and enable strategic decision-making around project and request prioritization and execution, including:
- Service Request Integration – Allows BMC Remedy users to create service requests, which are then seamlessly translated into project requests within Daptiv PPM. Project managers are able to prioritize, approve, and manage requests within Daptiv PPM while providing updates to the BMC user without ever needing to access or insert data into additional programs.
- Change Request Integration – Enables project managers to initiate change requests within a Daptiv PPM project, which are received by an IT manager through BMC Remedy. IT managers have the ability to prioritize requests and assign the most appropriate IT resource to complete them, while keeping project managers updated with valuable data and status reports.
- Release Request Integration – Transfers project managers' release requests within Daptiv PPM to IT managers using BMC Remedy. IT managers then identify top priority requests and assign IT resources to complete them. Daptiv PPM project managers are in constant communication with the IT managers, and receive status updates on their requests within Daptiv PPM.
