Ushering in a New Era of Work and Resource Management

WRM one year later

Introducing Planview Portfolios

For more than a year now, I have been talking about how project delivery does not equal strategic alignment. It is about transforming ideas into executable, strategic plans—from start to finish—and being able to take advantage of new opportunities and pivot as change occurs.

Organizations must embrace digital transformation—from the products they deliver to the business capabilities and technology they leverage to compete. They must innovate faster and create disruption in order to remain relevant and surface above the competition. With new technology and product advancements on the roadmap, organizations must breakdown walls to work together, because products, technology, and services are all interconnected. They must do all of this, often with the same amount of resources. It’s a more complex resource challenge—and work and resource management is at the core of strategic execution.

That’s why we’re very excited to unveil Planview® Portfolios. As the first enterprise solution to unify a broad set of work and resource management (WRM) domains, it’s designed to help organizations tackle these market challenges head on—by connecting strategy and delivery enterprise-wide. With Planview Portfolios, your business can orchestrate strategic execution across all work and resources. Watch the video where I explain the world of WRM and how to you can connect strategy and delivery.

Why is this such a game-changer? Think about how hard it is to quickly iterate and adapt to changing market conditions—especially when you’re weighed down by resource constraints. If you could orchestrate work and resources, you could accelerate your strategy-to-delivery process and more clearly drive market-changing products and technology. Right?

No doubt, digital transformation is happening at a remarkable pace—with or without you. Keeping up isn’t easy for C-level executives and their teams. They need to integrate their operations, connect their strategy, and deliver long-term profitable growth.

With Planview Portfolios, you can bring new strategies to life, advance digital transformation initiatives, and drive innovation. It allows you to make smarter, faster business decisions to deliver the most innovative products and services to your customers.

How are we making this happen? We’re converging Planview Enterprise® and Planview Troux® into a singular product line with a common user experience. This includes portfolio and resource management and capability and technology management—all rolled into one solution. In addition, we’re incorporating work collaboration to help teams effectively work together across geographical, cultural, and organizational boundaries. Plus, you get all this with a radically simplified pricing model too.

With Planview Portfolios release 15, you now can use this one great place to plan and execute all types of work with the introduction of iterative work management. We’ve also expanded how customers can leverage Microsoft Power BI across their implementation, included a Microsoft Visio-based modeling approach, and added a new enterprise node visualization with dynamic, configurable views. Imagine seeing work and resources like never before.

We call this a win-win for everyone. Planview Portfolios can help your organization connect strategy to delivery and beyond.
