Project Management Software Accelerates Revenue Growth

A report from Computer Business Review highlights the ongoing growth of project management software. In 2020, this type of software enjoyed an accelerated revenue growth of 11 percent and $1.65 billion.

A report from Computer Business Review highlights the ongoing growth of project management software. In 2020, this type of software enjoyed an accelerated revenue growth of 11 percent and $1.65 billion. A research director noted that the expansion is global and expected to continue next year.

Computer Business Review points out that the project management software industry is enjoying growth in North America and Europe. Although the market is global, these two areas are seeing most of the accelerated revenue. More companies are beginning to rely on this type of software as management becomes a bigger focus.

Despite the growth, a recent article from the Bellingham Herald provides a perfect example of how the lack of project management software can actually create more problems for organizations. Government databases in the state of Washington are outdated and rely on technology that leaves them vulnerable to hackers. The lack of management software has created "more than 100 redundant components, ranging from single Excel spreadsheets to stand-alone systems." Security problems are also addressed by Genius Inside, a project management software company for IBM Lotus Notes, in a recent blog post. It notes that collaboration tools still require strong security to keep data safe from hackers. Genius Inside points out both internal and external threats have to be considered because project management often involves sensitive data that may need to be restricted to select members of an organization.

Project management software is being embraced by many businesses. While the improved work flow and management abilities that come from the software are known aspects, some organizations are still resisting the change. The Bellingham Herald's review of the shortfalls created by outdated technology in the state of Washington provides examples of how sensitive user information can become prey for hackers if security is not part of software considerations. In addition, the lack of a single cohesive system creates more opportunities for breaches.
