This past week EPM Live exhibited at the Gartner PPM and IT Governance Summit 2012. Held at the beautiful Gaylord National Hotel in National Harbor, Maryland, it turned out to be another exciting show for EPM Live.
The exhibit hall opened Monday morning with a surge of attendees coming through the open doors excited about seeing all the PPM solutions being highlighted on the show floor. Immediately, the EPM Live booth became packed with attendees ready for demos of our product and loaded with questions.
EPM Live’s All Users, All Work, All Processes in one centralized location approach to PPM was an attractive concept to attendees. The EPM Live solution allows users of all maturity levels to collaborate and work at a level that is comfortable to them, increasing user adaptability within the organization. Bringing in all work and not just project tasks allows project managers to accurately understand which projects and types of work are consuming their most valuable resources and allowing them to effectively realign staffing plans based on changing priorities and budgets. EPM Live also supports Agile and Waterfall PPM methodologies as well as leveraging pre-built solution application templates for Application Portfolio Management, Professional Services Automation, New Product Development, and IT Planning and Control.
By far the most popular EPM Live edition at the Gartner PPM Summit was PortfolioEngine, our strategic top-down portfolio planning tool. Although our three editions build on top of each other creating a robust amount of capabilities for the user to leverage, some of the attendees favorite capabilities of PortfolioEngine, our top tier edition, was the Portfolio Management, Financial Management, Demand Management, What-If Modeling and Reporting.
And of course, it would not be an EPM Live event without an unforgettable grand finale! EPM Live closed out the event with a VIP after party at the world famous Bobby McKey’s Dueling Piano Bar. Gartner PPM Summit attendees as well as a little friendly competition all wanted in on the fun as they joined EPM Live for a night of dancing, singing and costuming! We look forward to seeing everyone again in the near future!
