We have large and small Canadian customers using QualiWare as their Project and Application Portfolio management solution. Very flexible and comprehensive solution that can be easily configured to meet your needs. Simple browser interface for maintaining and analyzing the content. Bonus: ties directly into overall corporate EA initiatives and content so management can see costs, impacts, risks, etc.

Hi, @Cheryl Joseph Micro Focus Project and Portfolio Management solution could be a good candidate, see my review on this product, or if you may need more information to drop me a message. 


You can check the strategic portfolio planning solutions, like aangine with AI roadmap planning featuresthat can start to bring value in the short-term and can be entry-point to any PPM solution, unlike long investments that happen with PPM solutions deployments.

Hi @Cheryl Joseph ​Looking at the crossover between Project and Portfolio management with EA, then Planview could be a good choice. If looking at Portfolio Management from an EA perspective then LeanIX and Ardoq could be interesting alternatives.


Of course many of the traditional EA tools such as MEGA, Bizzdesign, etc. also provide portfolio management support, but in my opinion, they are not as comprehensive as the ones I mentioned above.

The real question is: what type of Project/Portfolio Management system do I need?  The Trello, Asana, and Monday.com types of products tend to be a bit more lightweight. Sometimes, they lack the structure that a more robust system such as Project Online or Project for the Web can offer.  If the organization is small(er) and or only a few individuals will be utilizing the system, then the former may work well. If a large(r) organization and many PMs /Portfolio Managers, compliance issues, etc., a more mainstream Project? A Portfolio Management approach may be needed. Look into a bigger player in the market.  Take a look at the Gartner reviews for additional suggestions as to what level and type of system may be the right one for your organization.

A lot depends on the size of the organization number of Projects that need to be migrated, the number of Project Managers, Programs, Portfolios, and so on.

Cybersecurity had been recognized as a Fifth War Domain a while back: Land, Sea, Air, Space, Cyber.  As such, planning for war is important since it provokes managers to THINK.  While the plans that these managers develop are mostly useless since these plans become mostly irrelevant when the Cyber Battle ensues. Preparedness, counterintelligence, logistics, skills, adaptability, and distributed decision-making become more important as compared to PMI principles and best practices ( 'the disciplined agile' should be included and focused on as part of the adaptability;-)).
