Changepoint Announces New Business Execution Management Platform

Today is an exciting day for the Changepoint team as we officially launch our new Business Execution Management™ (BEM) Platform, which allows customers to connect strategy with execution, become more agile, and improve organizational performance. We designed this platform with the understanding that technologies, industries, and organizations are ever-changing while most business processes are unable to keep up with new challenges and needs. In fact, the 2014 Society for Information Management IT Key Issues and Trends Study reported that business alignment and agility are among the top five IT management concerns. Therefore, BEM was created to be flexible enough for executives to keep strategy and execution continuously aligned throughout organizational changes.

The technology behind this platform connects the robust solutions you’re already familiar with to provide new levels of visibility and strategic insight, including project portfolio management (PPM), enterprise portfolio management (EPM), and professional services automation (PSA). Rather than viewing and managing projects and initiatives independently within silos and spreadsheets, customers using the BEM Platform are able view real-time status updates for their technology, business, project, human capital, and other portfolios in one comprehensive view.

One of the many key benefits BEM provides is support for strategic planning and analysis. BEM does this by providing users with the strategic oversight and insight necessary to realize the downstream impacts of decisions, updates, and changes going on in separate departments. To do this BEM uses key EPM functionalities to develop a map of the enterprise, while connecting IT and business for real-time analysis of project, resource, and asset performance, as well as the interrelationships that exist across portfolios.

To learn more about the other three major benefits of this platform, and to hear what one of our customers has to say about it, check out the official press release.

Daptiv Is Now Changepoint!

ChangepointToday I am very excited to announce that Daptiv will be joining Changepoint to bring unmatched project portfolio management (PPM) and professional services automation (PSA) solutions to the market. Changepoint has acquired Daptiv as a very strategic step in building a strong future for the new combined
company that will truly benefit the customers, employees, and partners of both organizations.

For those unfamiliar with Changepoint, it is a Toronto-based based company that provides on-premise and hosted PSA and PPM solutions to businesses around the world. Like Daptiv, Changepoint is a Gartner Magic Quadrant Leader, but the solutions serve different markets within the space and together create a highly robust, complementary and non-competitive portfolio of world-class PSA and PPM solutions.

Now that the acquisition has been announced, I want to assure you that none of the Daptiv products and services you’ve come to know will skip a beat. It will be business as usual and all services will be supported throughout and beyond this acquisition. This acquisition creates a broader portfolio of world-class solutions, making Changepoint the only company to have recognized market leading solutions in both PSA and PPM with complete customer delivery flexibility, including on-premise, hosted, and pure SaaS. 

This is great news for Daptiv customers…

  • Changepoint’s acquisition of Daptiv is focused on investing in and growing the business to continue to provide customer value.  This new organization will be stronger and better positioned to innovate and lead in the industry.
  • Our customers are critically important to us. We greatly value your business and will work hard to make sure the transition is seamless and the acquisition creates added customer value.
  • We will continue to fully support, maintain and invest in both the Changepoint and Daptiv solutions.  We know many of you are currently deploying and/or expanding Daptiv and we will work hard to ensure your businesses see positive near and long-term benefits from this acquisition.
  • Finally, we will keep the lines of communication open and make every effort to answer all of your questions. We will make sure your account managers and our executives are available for you to answer any questions you might have.

We look forward to working with our now vastly expanded customer community to find new ways to encourage communication and sharing of ideas, best practices and product direction. The quality and breadth of services you’ll have access to will only expand with this acquisition.
