A recent report initiating coverage of UMT360 by 451 Research asserts that strategic portfolio management (SPM) is key in helping organizations “capture what success looks like, understand current and future states in terms of architectures and business capabilities, and align different stakeholders to get there.” The report examines UMT360’s ability to deliver SPM capabilities to clients, and the importance of its recent integration of powerful business and architecture tools into its comprehensive strategic portfolio management software.
Key analyst firms all agree
UMT360’s powerful software has been recognized by other analyst firms, including Gartner and Forrester. The main thread that connects all of this coverage is UMT360’s comprehensive approach to strategic portfolio management, and its focus on providing clients with both the strategy execution and governance capabilities missing from most adaptive work management platforms and the enterprise and business architecture tools that organizations need to break down disparate silos across the enterprise.
It’s all about business agility
Most organizations striving to achieve business agility face two significant challenges. The first is an inability to map the organization in order to break down silos and connect them with each other across the enterprise. The other is an inability to continuously align all that activity with strategy. Unless those two obstacles are addressed, the organization will never be able to drive the agility required to respond to the inevitable disruptions that are now simply a part of business
Strategic portfolio management is the key
What’s clear is that most organizations are missing the processes and tools to help them overcome these obstacles. UMT360’s strategic portfolio management solution provides those missing capabilities, along with a proven approach to help ensure that the organization deploys those tools to truly deliver on the promise of driving business agility. Indeed, one of the key differentiators cited in 451’s recent report is the fact that UMT360’s solution delivers a “top-down approach to improve how organizations function, combining EA and strategy execution to help businesses become more connected and aligned and ultimately more agile.”
