BEACHWOOD, Ohio, Jan. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading IT research and advisory firm Gartner has included ProSymmetry (http://prosymmetry.com/) in its 2015 Portfolio Project Management (PPM) Market Guide. The guide offers a glimpse of the most pressing resource management and strategy challenges, along with a discussion of what qualifies as a robust, effective enterprise PPM tool. Meanwhile, ProSymmetry has reproduced the guide – normally valued at $1,200 – in a recently published report available for free download here: "Achieve Strategic Success With Tempus Resource." A video exploring the power of Tempus Resource is available here: https://youtu.be/Gi7NX5lC4RQ.
"Companies in every industry face the same resource challenges," explains ProSymmetry Managing Director Sean Pales. "Those challenges stem from the increasingly global nature of markets, the continuous evolution of technology, and the unpredictable nature of modern geopolitics. The resource planning tools and processes of yesterday simply aren't working today."
The distinguishing factor of Tempus Resource is its capacity to answer the "What If?" questions that often haunt decision makers within organizations. The software's scenario modeling enables tactical readiness and effective resource management, which in turn allows a company to develop sustainable advantages as part of long-term strategy execution.
Available on-premise or in the cloud, Tempus Resource makes the connections between resources and strategy plainly visible to all decision makers. The software's functionality is driven by real-world experiences and feedback, rather than coming solely from an IT perspective.
"Regardless of the goal – innovation, transformation, growth, profitability – organizations must become efficient practitioners of resource portfolio management," says Vice President of Worldwide Sales Greg Bailey. "Tempus Resource provides the kind of specialized toolkit to help decision makers and teams make smarter decisions on the fly, rather than reacting to forces after the fact."
Resources are the lifeblood of every organization, as well as the most consistent challenge facing timely project delivery. From human and material resources to more abstract variables like time, effectively matching resource supply and demand is how organizations meet strategic objectives. Many organizations, however, do not recognize or fully comprehend the critical importance of how resources and strategy connect.
Written by Research VP Donna Fitzgerald and Principal Research Analyst Teresa Jones, Gartner's Market Guide underscores the reality that forward-thinking EPPM (enterprise portfolio project management) solutions must capture all of the interdependencies of the modern organization. Ideally, EPPM solutions are focused on knowledge rather than tools or features – they must be grounded in business processes rather than IT functions. In addition, Gartner identifies real-time insights and organic – not programmatic – strategy evolution as key characteristics of EPPM.
Tempus Resource meets all of the above requirements, helping decision makers at every level to contribute to strategy and model their activities, seeing their effects across the entire organization. This year, ProSymmetry will be attending Gartner PPM & IT Governance Summits in London and Orlando, Florida.
