The Company Recognized Material Improvement in Positioning for Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

NORWALK, Conn., April 26th, 2023—Shibumi, a leading provider of strategic portfolio management software for enterprise customers, today announced that it has been included in Gartner’s 2023 Magic Quadrant for Strategic Portfolio Management 1 for the third consecutive year since the report’s initial publication in 2021. The company was recognized for its strength in Strategy Execution Management (SEM) and Enterprise Program and Portfolio Management (EPPM) use cases, as well as for its ability to provide all relevant strategic program information, across internal and external data sources, to stakeholders in a single application so they can maintain focus on performance.

Shibumi was recognized as a leading product for the SEM use case. Gartner highlighted Shibumi’s ability to integrate with 1,000+ external sources of truth via Shibumi Connect, released in late 2022, as well as Shibumi’s robust capabilities to define and track strategies, goals, objectives, and key results (OKRs), and link them to a variety of portfolios. Gartner also spotlighted Shibumi’s new Mobile App for Android and iOS, which enables stakeholders to manage strategic programs from anywhere, and use Shibumi in new business contexts. Through new partnerships with companies like Automation Anywhere, Shibumi is helping enterprises accelerate their transformation programs and scale their continuous improvement initiatives.

Shibumi views its 2023 positioning in the Magic Quadrant as recognition of the work the company has done over the past decade to help business leaders come together to drive measurable business outcomes. Shibumi takes a strategy-first approach to business transformation, helping CIOs, CSOs, CFOs, EPMOs, Transformation, and Operations executives set goals and objectives, then maintain real-time visibility into the status, risks and expected outcomes across a portfolio of hundreds of projects, programs, products, and initiatives designed to help achieve those business goals.

“Our positioning in the Magic Quadrant validates our 10 years of leadership in the SEM and EPPM markets,” said Bob Nahmias, Founder & CEO of Shibumi. “We have always been committed to helping business leaders identify which initiatives, programs, and products are going to drive the most value–and giving them a single source of truth to ensure that value is achieved. With Shibumi, enterprises are shifting from thinking about business transformation as a one-off project to an ongoing discipline of Continuous Transformation that underlies every part of the business.”
