Aptage History

At the time of acquisition, Aptage was a technology leader and pioneer in the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) to portfolio management and work management. Aptage’s expertise in data science was combined with unique domain knowledge in the economics of development spanning Agile and project methodologies.

The company’s technology and IP was focused on the application of AI/ML to enterprise software, offering customers early insights and visibility into anticipated value and delivery risk across traditional project management and agile methodologies.

Founded in 2016, Aptage’s proprietary IP was designed to accommodate the small data characteristics of Agile and traditional projects to continuously learn, predict, and provide actionable advice throughout the strategy to delivery pipeline.

Scaling AI/ML technology to portfolio and work management

Aptage’s technology has been proven with early adopters and is ready to scale to the mainstream market with Planview. For Planview customers, this ultimately means more accurate project outcome forecasting, regardless of work methodologies and processes used to get work done. Aptage’s innovative AI/ML technology creates insights into project value and delivery risk, improving and strengthening the strategy to delivery pipeline. Planview will be embedding the Aptage AI/ML IP across the Planview product portfolio.
