Planview Extends Integration into IBM Rational Product Line

Austin, TX — February 15, 2012 — Planview® today announced that Planview Enterprise®, its market-leading project portfolio management (PPM) application, is further extending its integration into the IBM Rational product line. This move will strengthen customers' ability to strategically plan with improved prioritization of projects and more efficient alignment of resources to corporate goals.

By enhancing cross-organization collaboration and efficiency, integration and partnership with IBM Rational, customers of both companies leverage the strength of Planview Enterprise portfolio management to drive innovation. The Planview and IBM Rational integration and approach works across three tiers to drive efficient alignment -- IBM Rational Focal Point, Planview Enterprise, and IBM Rational Team Concert. Planview OpenSuite interoperability products provide integration across those tiers to deliver cost savings through insight into how best to allocate resources, prioritize projects, and execute to success.

"We're excited to be working with IBM to further extend the benefits of Planview Enterprise with this integrated approach for our many users," said Patrick Tickle. "Planview customers will now have a whole new level of insight into how to best allocate their resources, prioritize their projects, and execute to success with Planview OpenSuite and IBM Rational."

IBM Rational Focal Point

Through the seamless integration of Planview Enterprise with IBM Rational Focal Point, customers are able to connect and prioritize projects with operational plans, share project status, enable business stakeholders and project managers to communicate in their own languages, and improve efficiency, productivity, and collaboration.

IBM Rational Team Concert

With the integration of IBM Rational Team Concert's collaborative lifecycle management solution, project and product managers now have a new line-of-sight into their developers' activities. Project leaders benefit from being able to easily connect the output of operational planning processes to project execution by an agile software team thereby aligning development work with program priorities.

As the strategy and execution engine, the Planview Enterprise portfolio management platform provides optimization of the pipeline by selecting projects and driving those projects' execution predictably with financial transparency into lifecycle costs.

Companies can use this three tier products set together to do initial prioritization of project ideas and proposals in Focal Point, and then use the power of Planview Enterprise to optimize those proposals further and do detailed resource and work planning while project details are simultaneously transferred to Rational Team concert to be used by the development team. To see the integrated solution in action, watch the recorded demo: Planview OpenSuite for IBM Focal Point and Rational Team Concert.
