Changepoint Empowers PMOs to Connect Business Strategy and Project Execution at Leading IT Conferences

May 28, 2015, 09:00 ET from Changepoint

TORONTO, May 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Changepoint, the premier provider of Business Execution Management, including market leading solutions for project portfolio management (PPM) and professional services automation (PSA), today announced two of its top executives will deliver a special session next month on Empowering PMOs to Connect Business Strategy with Project Execution at Gartner's PPM & IT Governance Summit in Grapevine, Texas, June 1-3. The company is also sponsoring the Gartner Enterprise Architecture Summit that takes place the same week, June 3-4.

This year's Gartner PPM & IT Governance Summit examines how the digital transformation sweeping IT is quickly making much of traditional PPM and IT governance obsolete, even as it opens up new major opportunities. At the show, PMO, Program and Portfolio Management Directors and Managers, as well as IT executives and strategists will have the opportunity to explore new ways for developing metrics that demonstrate business value. They'll also hear from industry thought leaders on how they can reshape their business strategies and work management processes for greater adaptability in today's constantly evolving industry.

Changepoint was the only vendor included in both recently published IT PPM focused Gartner Magic Quadrants, which the company considers demonstrative of the breadth and depth of its PPM platform. It also sets the stage for this year's presentation at the PPM & IT Governance Summit from Changepoint's VP of Product Management, Eric Bergman and General Manager of Enterprise Portfolio Management, Paul Cramer, who will unveil how the marriage of the historically independent roles of PPM and Enterprise Architecture (EA) enables valuable cross-portfolio business execution management. They'll highlight how together PPM and EA offer a game-changing value proposition by allowing businesses to achieve real-time alignment of strategy, planning, and work management. The two will also provide attendees with valuable insights into how they can integrate these technologies within their organizations, ultimately extending IT's role in improving business performance and outcomes.
