Ovum provides senior analyst coverage and detailed analysis of WorkOtter, the latest in SaaS project management and human resource management by WorkOtter.

ST. LOUIS, MO, November 27, 2010 – Ovum, Europe’s leading IT research and analysis organization recently completed a detailed audit of the newly upgraded WorkOtter for project, portfolio, and resource management. The WorkOtter is the latest in Internet Software as a Service (SaaS) tools designed to help manage company work and people thus allowing suppliers, clients, and employees to reach their full potential. Ovum subscribers can access the report from their web site and non-subscribers can purchase a copy for a fee.

“The SaaS model, whereby software functionality provided by a third party is accessed over the Internet as opposed to being installed within the user’s organization, has attracted high interest” states Tim Jennings of the Ovum. “Improvements in infrastructure, application design, and business models mean that in contrast to the flawed premise single tenant systems, SaaS has become a viable choice.”

“Although we have seen dramatic growth in our small business WorkOtter Express solution, our flagship product is still the WorkOtter” said Jeff Pupillo, co-founder of WorkOtter. “Many people see us as an overnight success but the truth is we started web-based project management nearly 10 years ago. Still it is validating to have leading industry analysts confirm many of the things our customers have been telling us since 1998. I believe it is an excellent piece of research and people will be enlightened by this report.”

“This is a great day for WorkOtter” said Nick Matteucci, co-founder of WorkOtter. “As a company not bankrolled by venture capitalists we can’t afford to advertise dollar for dollar with Microsoft, Daptiv, Planview, ChagePoint, or Computer Associates. For 10 years we have relied on better products and services to gain word of mouth references. Obviously, with this type of industry recognition our prospects now have another source of quality information from which to leverage in this important decision process.”
