TORONTO, June 13, 2019 - SoftwareReviews, a division of world-class research and advisory firm Info-Tech Research Group Inc., has published its 2019 Project Management (PM) Data Quadrant Awards, naming five gold medalists in the space: 
·        Wrike
·        Workfront 
·        Basecamp 
·        MavenLink 
·        Deltek Ajera
Project management software tools, allow companies to become more competitive within their environments, optimising time, effort and keeping projects on track.  PM software is used for planning and managing time, resources and people, controlling costs and monitoring project progress.
Lack of upfront project planning can result in IT projects going over budget and time, resulting in poor stakeholder satisfaction and a widespread perception that IT is not delivering value. 
Matt Burton, Research Director, Project Portfolio Management at Info-Tech Research Group states, “Over the past two decades, the project management industry has become increasingly rife with best practices and formal frameworks for achieving project success.  However, this proliferation hasn’t changed the fact that most organizations continue to struggle at projects.  Indeed, statistics around project failure—especially IT projects—have remained consistently high since at least the mid-1990s, a time that coincides with the rise of the ‘best practices’ industry itself.  “ 
Effective PM is critical to ensure that the results meet stakeholder expectations, yet organizations resist project management due to the perception that it must be complex and require excessive effort and expense.
