UMT Consulting Group Receives “Best PPM Strategy Service Provider” Award

UMT Consulting Group, the Project & Portfolio Management Consultants, today announced it has been awarded the prestigious ‘Best Project & Portfolio Management Strategy Service Provider’ award for 2009. The award is a testament to UMT CG’s leadership role and consistent high quality delivery at Fortune 1000 client sites. The awards were presented on June 17th, at the Hyatt Regency Orange County in Garden Grove, CA.

The Project & Portfolio Management Summit brought together over 150 senior executives from the Project & Portfolio Management business community with Gartner analysts and leading and emerging vendors. The event focused on initiatives and issues specific to the buyers and sellers of Project & Portfolio Management solutions, with a business intensive format that included industry insight sessions from Gartner and UMT Consulting Group as well as Private Boardroom Appointments, a showcase of exhibits, and networking functions.

UMT Consulting Group was awarded the ‘Best Project & Portfolio Management Strategy Service Provider’ an award that is provided for excellence in implementing PPM solutions, including process and governance design, along with software implementation. According to Gil Makleff, “This nomination reflects a combination of high quality delivery, 20 years of successful PPM deployments, and a great partnership with Microsoft. The Microsoft Solution, this year’s recipient of the ‘Best Solution: PPM Technology’ Award, has made successful deployments possible by enabling the functionality and the collaborative environment needed for successful enterprise deployments. Although this award is a reflection of the current applications, the Microsoft roadmap seems to be extremely exciting with the 2010 product eliciting the clarification of ‘Cool’ from Daniel Stang, a leading Gartner Analyst”.

Seth Patton, Director of Microsoft Project Product Management Group added, “The high level of innovation and customer focus delivered by our partner community is a big part of what makes our customers successful. This award reflects the success and commitment UMT Consulting Group repeatedly brings to our customers.”
