GenSight Named "Cool Vendor" by Gartner, Inc.

GenSight, a leading provider of Portfolio and Resource Management solutions, has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the Cool Vendors in Program and Portfolio Management, 2014 report by Gartner, Inc., published on May 2nd by Robert Handler, Jim Duggan and Daniel Stang.

GenSight takes an interesting approach to portfolio management, compared to other traditional PPM vendors, by offering a complete solution including Business Process Design, Enterprise Software and Change Management to assist its customers in improving their Portfolio, Resource, Stage-Gate and Project Management capabilities. GenSight employs advanced analytics and data visualization to allow organizations to manage the complexity of the portfolio decision making process, including portfolio optimization and simulation, 3-D bubble charts, portfolio animation and multivariate portfolio models, to arrive at the optimal portfolio mix that will deliver organizational strategic goals, within their resource constraints.

GenSight’s solution ensures that organizational leadership have the right data at hand to answers two very important but often complex questions: 1) Do they have projects in the portfolio to deliver strategic goals and 2) Do they have enough appropriate resources to execute the portfolio. Research shows that these two questions are the principle reasons why smart managers find it difficult to make the bests decisions regarding project selection, and why organizations have been losing maturity in strategic decision making, while gaining maturity in project execution.

“We consider our inclusion in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner confirmation of our ability to align our client organizations around a systematic approach to strategic choice and resource optimization,” said Michael Menard, President and Co-founder of GenSight. “We continue to innovate while we execute on our product roadmap. With the recent release of GenSight’s Version 8.5 Enterprise Software, we have delivered a truly revolutionary product that is changing the face of the Portfolio Management industry, and has further enhanced our market position.”

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
All clouds are not equal.
