"Traditional project management software is designed for a perfect world, one that does not exist," explains Realization Technologies Vice President of Marketing Shailesh Sood. "In reality, uncertainties are omnipresent in projects. Requirements change, technology fails, vendors do not deliver, work materializes slower than expected, approvals do not come on time and priorities change. In multi-project environments, these uncertainties multiply, wreaking havoc. Our software's Safety Engine(TM) enables companies to manage uncertainties, delivering more projects, faster, with the same resources."
