Planview Announces Strategic Acquisitions of Clarizen and Changepoint to Accelerate Strategy to Delivery for Enterprises

Share

Planview, a global leader in Portfolio Management and Work Management, today announced the company has entered into definitive agreements to acquire Clarizen and Changepoint, leading enterprise Project Portfolio Management (PPM) providers.

Across industries, enterprises are transforming their businesses to be digital-first. This shift has only accelerated during the COVID-19 pandemic, and what’s emerged is a new and enduring way of working that’s flexible, highly distributed, and digital. As increasingly dispersed teams embrace new tools and processes to meet the evolving needs of their customers, visibility and connectivity across the enterprise have never been more critical. The market demands a comprehensive software platform that can connect strategy to delivery across siloed workstreams and disciplines – capabilities best provided through PPM and Agile.

The combination of Planview, Clarizen, and Changepoint creates a unique platform enabling organizations to better collaborate, deliver, and thrive in this new world of work. Backed by TPG Capital and TA Associates, the combination harnesses the capabilities of three leading providers to deliver customers an unmatched level of expertise, IP, and resources to ensure their most important outcomes are delivered with efficiency, urgency, and transparency.

“In today’s environment, enterprises are looking for partners with the vision, expertise, and scale to help them navigate and excel in our all-digital world,” said Greg Gilmore, CEO of Planview. “Planview, Clarizen, and Changepoint are all leaders, and together, our customers create an exceptional community of PMOs, PPM and Professional Services Automation (PSA) practitioners. Collectively, there is no better platform to drive innovation and fuel the transformation of strategy to delivery.”

Since inception, Planview has focused on partnering with enterprises to help them re-imagine the ways they plan and manage work. With Clarizen and Changepoint’s leadership and category expertise, Planview will provide customers of all sizes with a robust community and end-to-end offering that enables them to meet their unique business goals and drive better business outcomes. In addition to leading Enterprise Agile Planning and Kanban from Planview, Clarizen and Changepoint customers will benefit from the expanded resources that Planview delivers.

“We’re thrilled to be joining forces with two organizations that share our core belief of putting customers at the heart of everything we do,” said Matt Zilli, CEO of Clarizen. “By bringing together these companies, customers will have access to a portfolio of industry leading solutions from three world-class companies, as well as new innovation as we focus on providing even more value to our customers.”

“In order to achieve meaningful business outcomes, organizations need to be adaptable and nimble while ensuring alignment from strategic planning to delivery,” said Matt Scheuing, CEO of Changepoint. “We look forward to working with the Planview and Clarizen teams and believe the combination of exceptional Portfolio and Work Management solutions, practitioners and experts will enable our customers to continue to succeed in an ever-changing business environment.”

Upon completion of the transactions, the Clarizen and Changepoint teams will join Planview as distinct business units, led by Matt Zilli and Matt Scheuing. Zilli and Scheuing will report into Planview CEO, Greg Gilmore. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2021. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
