Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) recently released their research, Next Generation IT Management Radar Report, where EPM Live was included and awarded for their advancement in fully integrated IT Management. The Radar Report outlines the industries top platforms who have successfully integrated support, project and service management on a common architectural platform with integrated resource management and time tracking capabilities.  

“EPM Live has notable strengths as a vendor, in terms of its vision, market recognition, and channel partnerships. In terms of vision, EPM Live tackles the key IT portfolio question very directly in recognizing the existence of service, application and project portfolios and the need to govern work across all three,” noted Charlie Betz, EMA Analyst. “Of all the vendors, EPM Live perhaps best exemplifies the EMA framework of “Demand/Supply/ Execute. They correctly note that ‘the ability to manage project tasks alone is no longer enough. In order to get a true picture of project performance, all work that affects a project portfolio must be considered. The need to maintain disparate systems to manage various types of work such as applications, products, projects and services, is no longer required. Work management brings all projects and all work together for true reporting and maximum efficiency.’”
