(Publicado en el blog personal de Ramon Costa, www.ramoncosta.cat)

During today and tomorrow, I’m attending to the Gartner “PPM (Programa and Portfolio Management and IT Governance” Summit 2010, in London, in behalf of Microsoft Innovation Center – Productivity Center (www.productivitycenter.org).

This morning, there was an interesting Panel Discussion (“PPM & IT Governance Trends, Best Practices and Future Scenarios – A view from the industry”), with the participation of CA Technologies and Microsoft

Donna Fitzgerald, from Gartner, proposed 6 questions and everyone of the participants answered to them.

Here are the questions and the answers:

  • Over the next 5 years “change management” is expected to become an important new component of PPM practice and will require support in PPM software
    Microsoft: Strongly Agree
    CA: Agree
  • Over the next 5 years the most significant element of web 2.0 that will be included in every PPM tool will be predictive markets
    Microsoft: Agree
    CA: Strongly Agree
  • As PPM matures over the next 5 years new features functions will be required. Improved support for finantial management in PPM tools will be the most important
    Microsoft: Agree
    CA: Neutral
  • Over the next 5 years the feature function that project teams member will demand is better workflow capabilities
    Microsoft: Strongly Agree
    CA: Agree
  • Customers would most like vendors to emphasize “better reporting and analytics” in the software going forward
    Microsoft: Agree
    CA: Strongly Agree
  • New customers will be buying software in the future. Specialized PPM products for each business area will become the norm.
    Microsoft: Strongly Disagree
    CA: Disagree

I think they are interesting, because are the opinion of the two main PPM solutions developers in the worldwide market.
