Bedford, Ma. — July 20, 2010 — Project.net Inc., the leader in collaborative Project Management and Portfolio Management (PPM), has been included by Gartner, Inc. in its "Magic Quadrant for IT Project and Portfolio Management Applications" research report. Project.net provides organizations with an enterprise-grade, customizable and robust alternative to expensive and proprietary monolithic applications.
"It's great that Gartner has recognized Open Source as a credible contender in this space that has historically been the exclusive purview of large software vendors," says Peter Winston, CEO. "We've long known that Project.net's open source approach is ideal for implementing effective, flexible, and affordable Project Management."
Long a leader in innovative project and portfolio management, Project.net is being downloaded from SourceForge hundreds of times per day and through strong international adoption is increasingly becoming Where the World Works™. The extensive Project.net community enables adopters of all sizes and capabilities to optimize the performance of their organization within Project.net's collaborative and comprehensive project management framework.
In addition to acknowledging that Project.net is "one of just a select few open-source/commercial PPM systems available" Gartner also notes Project.net's mid-market appeal and penetration, “In addition to supporting up to thousands of end users, Project.net can also support very small project workgroups." Gartner also acknowledged Project.net's extensibility with other packages that expand overall functionality and capability.
