 San Jose, Calif., March 12, 2020 -- Wrike, the most versatile collaborative work management platform, has been named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape for Worldwide Work Management and Project and Portfolio Management (doc #US45940620, January 2020).  

According to the IDC MarketScape, the focus areas for this market include “work management–specific capabilities in the context of coordination with project and portfolio management functionality, with established, significant numbers of user deployments, intuitive access, and support of highly collaborative approaches across business initiatives, IT, and new product development.” Vendors assessed in the IDC MarketScape needed to demonstrate “deep, granular work management–specific functional capabilities available for excellence and/or partnerships to augment foundational project and portfolio management functionality.”

“Enterprises today are compelled to deliver innovation at the rapid clip of customer expectations,” said Wrike CEO Andrew Filev. “This calls for greater versatility into the way work is coordinated and complex projects are managed. A platform that combines the simplicity of a single source of truth with the power of automation and intelligence, is now essential to not only meet customer demand, but prime an organization for future growth. We’re grateful to be recognized by the IDC MarketScape for our efforts in this space.”

IDC MarketScape criteria selection, weightings, and vendor scores represent well-researched IDC judgment about the market and specific vendors. IDC analysts tailor the range of standard characteristics by which vendors are measured through structured discussions, surveys, and interviews with market leaders, participants, and end users. Market weightings are based on user interviews, buyer surveys, and the input of IDC experts in each market. IDC analysts base individual vendor scores, and ultimately vendor positions on the IDC MarketScape, on detailed surveys and interviews with the vendors, publicly available information, and end-user experiences in an effort to provide an accurate and consistent assessment of each vendor's characteristics, behavior, and capability.

"IDC sees adoption of work management solutions for dynamic execution and innovative decision making via automation to enable speedy responsiveness and invocation of dynamically changing initiatives," said Melinda Ballou, research director for IDC's Agile ALM, Quality and Portfolio Strategies service. "Complementing these capabilities, increasingly, we observe demand for collaboration, workflow, and highly intuitive interfaces for an easy on-ramp coordinated with sufficient project and portfolio management approaches for businesses and technology helping focus teams with targeted execution, cutting delays to benefit, and improving metrics."
