IT Governance: Maximizing the Business Investment
Implementing information technology (IT) governance means using a structure of relationships and processes to direct an organization. Some project portfolio management (PPM) vendors have adopted the IT governance mantra to differentiate their solutions from those offered by the enterprise resource planning (ERP) industry.

NIKU: such as Computer Associate s Niku , ProSight , Pacific Edge , Augeo Software , PlanView , and Mercury Interactive , among others, recognize the value of positioning themselves as niche vendors in IT governance. In response to the strong billing and project accounting functionality offered by ERP and accounting vendors, these best-of-breed PPM vendors have focused their marketing efforts on IT governance to strengthen their offering. Defining IT Governance The differences between success and failure in

Project Portfolio Management for New Product Development: Tracking the Project Cycle from Idea to Launch
Resource allocation and phase-based processes are key features to consider when selecting a project portfolio management solution for new product development (NPD) projects. More importantly, NPD projects demand a best practices framework, like Stage-Gate®, for their success.

NIKU: the PPM vendors below. Niku s Clarity solution provides the tools that are necessary from the decision stage to the development and delivery stages of NPD. Niku provides reporting tools (bubble diagrams and histograms), as well as collaboration and decision support applications to support PPM for NPD and R&D projects. Key to Niku s offering is its People Powered Innovation concept, which provides companies with tools to facilitate collaboration and to gain increased visibility into people-related

Project Management Office: Framework Strategy
IT initiatives driven within silos, where each department maintain its own project management office, inhibits the overall cohesiveness and effectiveness of corporate strategy. This document outlines best practices to centralize and deliver a scalable and robust project management framework strategy.

NIKU: players such as Primavera, NIKU, PlanView, and more recently, MS Project with its continued enhancements. A product we are impressed with is the Business Propulsion Systems PPM product. The real time application capabilities built into the BPS product allows not only for near-real time reporting to executives (as opposed to waiting until the end of the month only to find projects are off track/out of scope), and its ability to provide the associated alerts and notifications based on user definable

Professional Services Organizations Automate their Processes
Major vendors are entering the professional services software market and small niche vendors are repositioning themselves to compete. This changing market is conveying mixed messages; however, users can navigate this space by separating market messages from vendors' functional capabilities.

NIKU: by Primavera ), and Niku (acquired by Computer Associates ), has driven PSA vendors to adopt a new banner— project portfolio management or PPM. So what does this mean for end user organizations? In this relatively new software space, professional services organizations are faced with the challenge of evaluating the changing faces of their vendors. PPM for Professional Services Today most PSA vendors categorize themselves as PPM vendors. Project portfolio management or PPM facilitates an organization

Lawson Software-IPO and Several Acquisitions AfterPart Five: Challenges and User Recommendations
Lawson has yet to show that its strategy and technology can

NIKU: PSA (e.g., Evolve , Niku , Changepoint , etc.) and HR players ( ADP , Ceridian , Kronos , Ultimate Software , etc.), single-industry software vendors (e.g., Retek , i2 Technologies , JDA , NSB Retail Systems , etc., in the retail sector) and those companies that offer a specific solution that directly competes with a portion of its more comprehensive product offering. Also, the functional gaps are narrowing by the day, as in the case of teaming up of Infinium (now part of SSA Global) and McKesson to

Lawson Software Means Business With PSA and IPO
By acquiring a leading PSA vendor and deciding to go public, in addition to the new functional and technological enhancements to its flagship lawson.insight suite due in August, Lawson Software continues to boldly challenge bigger competitors, primarily PeopleSoft and Oracle.

NIKU: native PSA players like Niku Corporation , Evolve , Novient , Portera and Business Engine that have already created market visibility. The scenario is somewhat similar to the CRM, SCM or e-procurement markets: pure PSA players will emphasize their relevant product completeness and depth with the appropriate price tag, their expertise in handling unstructured data, and will spread the FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt) about immature ERP/PSA offerings and the danger of buying irrelevant modules in an

PeopleSoft Building Muscles To Overcome The Rough PatchPart 3: Target Markets, Alliances, & Competition
In PeopleSoft’s case, the fact remains that it is still the best-attuned offering (in terms of pricing, vertical extensions, customizability, professional service approach, etc.) to the needs of large, service-oriented enterprises, or for ‘greenfield’ sites. However, to put things in the right perspective, one should bear in mind that PeopleSoft’s license revenue in 2001 was still less than the corresponding revenue in 1998, back when the company was only a HRMS/ERP player.

NIKU: such as Deltek , Niku , Evolve , Novient and Changepoint . Thinking vertically, in the healthcare space, it particularly competes with Lawson Software and Infinium , whereas in the higher education, it faces SCT , Jenzabar , and Datatel , on top of ubiquitous SAP and Oracle nemeses in all markets. This mind-boggling competition may remind the customers of the fact that PeopleSoft does not necessarily deliver the best value to everybody across the board. PeopleSoft 8, achieved through a radical rewrite of

Deltek Remains the Master of Its Selected Few DomainsPart Six: Challenges and User Recommendations
While we believe that the Deltek’s strategy to shore up its current install base and to target new related markets has been sound, one should never discount fierce competition given the market for enterprise application software has become a highly competitive and rapidly changing field.

NIKU: players (e.g., Evolve , Niku , Novient , SharpOWL , OpenAir , QuickArrow , Tenrox , Changepoint , Portera , Maconomy , Unit 4 Agresso, Business Engine ), emerging client relationship management software vendors (e.g., Interface Software and Time Matters ) and, companies offering specific solutions that directly compete with a portion of more comprehensive product offering. Likewise, the functional gaps are narrowing by the day (see Big ERP Players Courting Government Agencies ). Moreover, as Deltek
