“EPM Live is one very strong example that SharePoint can be developed as a foundation for core, execution-level PPM applications and functionality. EPM Live acquired the EPK-Suite, another PPM application offering portfolio, resource and cost management capabilities. As a result, the combined features and functions strengthened EPM Live and WorkEngine as the “SharePoint answer” to PPM supporting a variety of PPM and project execution environments. The WorkEngine product can support execution-level PPM features for project portfolio reporting, resource management, cost management, schedule management, time management, task and work management, reporting services, and BI reporting and analysis. EPM Live can also provide WorkEngine in multiple deployment modes.”  Dan Stang, Gartner PPM Analyst
