SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Realization, a company dedicated to improving project management, today announced that it has entered into a partnership with Fujitsu Systems West in which Fujitsu will offer Realization's Concerto software as a service to the Japanese market. The service is immediately available.
Traditional project management methods are failing today's organizations, resulting in high costs, missed deadlines and unmet objects because they rely on Gantt charts, a century-old paper-based project management tool that was never intended to be used with large, complicated projects. Making matters worse, the application of computing power has enabled project managers to transform these simple, paper-based plans into an unwieldy morass of tens of thousands of tasks with multiple layers of dependencies. These project plans are not only difficult to understand, they are impossible to use in execution because of the inevitable changes and uncertainties that arise during project execution. As a result, people end up working from a haphazard assortment of spreadsheets, to-do lists and emails. Teams get out of synchronization, priorities become unclear and, especially when unforeseen problems arise, no one knows how to get the project back on track.
Concerto empowers organizations to take control of execution and rapidly adjust to unforeseen challenges through the use of Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM), a methodology developed by the late Dr. Eliyahu Goldratt. For more than a decade, Realization has helped organizations like ABB, Amdocs, BHP Billiton, Dr. Reddy's Laboratories, L&T, Medtronic, NASA and the U.S. Air Force speed project completion by up to 50 percent and collectively realize more than $4 billion in additional cash and profits.
"Realization has already proven itself in Japan," said Isao Nakae, Director, Global Solutions Department at Fujitsu. "Daiwa House, Japan's largest homebuilder, has used Concerto to complete a large SAP implementation project not just on time, but ahead of schedule. We look forward to giving our customers the opportunity to enjoy similar project success through Concerto."
The market opportunity is large, and Fujitsu Systems West projects that the Concerto offering will generate 250 million yen in sales by the end of fiscal year 2015.
"The global opportunity for project management solutions that actually deliver project success is vast," said Sanjeev Gupta, CEO of Realization. "With Realization and Fujitsu Systems West, Japanese organizations can finally enjoy the kind of project success that previously may have seemed completely out of reach."
