2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant for Strategic Portfolio Management

See how SPM vendors are evaluated (and how they help with IT change).

New business and workplace demands are requiring us to rethink and redesign our technology strategies. New working paradigms, Agile development methods for digital business, ESG-motivated business strategies and increased cyber threats—these initiatives call for the ability to quickly adapt the IT portfolio while ensuring business alignment and architectural soundness. And to do it right, you need the right platform.

Now in its third year, the Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Strategic Portfolio Management evaluates ten SPM vendors on “Ability to Execute” and “Completeness of Vision.” The report looks at what each platform offers and helps you find the SPM vendor that is right for you.

Out of the ten vendors, Software AG is positioned as a Leader with the highest “Ability to Execute."
