ManagePro Ranks #2 in Value Delivered in Aberdeen’s Business Intelligence Axis Report
ManagePro beat heavyweights such as Cognos, Microsoft, Hyperion and
SAP for Value Delivered in Aberdeen’s Q1 2009 BI software review. We
were delighted that our value-add rated higher than all of the large
companies included in the review, placing 2nd only to Qlick Tech, a
reporting program that sits on top of SAP. When you look at who’s
on the list and compare the sizes of the relative organizations –
it’s a bit of the David and Goliath story.
Yes we deliver a lot of value in both the performance management and
project management areas, but here’s one of our secrets. We begin
by delivering primary core features, like one click access to progress
updates, details, todos, and scorecards, at a very simple, immediate level.
All the additional powerful features are there if you need them, but we
don’t want them to get in your way… when you don’t need them.
But beyond the software, one of the biggest value-adds is the way we
engage with our customer base, should they/you decide to participate.
We know that nothing is simple at work, and yet the best solutions deal
with complexity through simple basics, which we keep striving to deliver
to you via ManagePro and its business intelligence tool set.
I think a quote from Apple’s Steve Jobs says it very well,
“…when you start looking at a problem and it seems really simple with all
these simple solutions, you don’t really understand the complexity of the
problem. And your solutions are way too oversimplified, and they don’t work.
Then you get into the problem, and you see it’s really complicated. And then
you come up with all these convoluted solutions. That’s sort of the middle,
and that’s where most people stop, and the solutions tend to work for
awhile. But the really great person will keep on going and find, sort of,
the key, underlying principle of the problem. And come up with a
beautiful elegant solution that works.”
Or as Mark Rafter coined it – “Jobs is striving for the simplicity on the
otherside of complexity.”
