Virage Days was also an opportunity to discover the major trends in the Product Roadmap. In fact, two roadmaps were unveiled, one for each software product:

  • Project Monitor for project portfolio management
  • Perf Monitor for strategic and performance plan management

For Project Monitor ambitions are clear: to become the benchmark PPM platform in terms of user experience. Since profiles are varied, user paths will be personalized and dynamic. Each responsibility with its own specificities will be guided and equipped accordingly, whether as manager, PMO or project leader. And since projects are all about teams and arbitration, collaboration and decision-making data will also be key features of future developments.

For Perf Monitorthe announcement of the imminent arrival of a brand new version. The challenge is simple: to secure and accelerate the link between strategy and execution. ENGIE's feedback was eloquent on this point. The new version will provide the teams responsible for steering Performance Plans and Strategic Plans with a platform that will link objectives more simply and precisely with the actions needed to achieve them. The presentation reaffirmed our close relationship with our 250 customers in the development of our offerings. Their expectations and feedback are central to the design of our solutions.
