The former name of the Planisware solution, today OPX2 is now referred as Planisware Enterprise. The change came in the year 2009 with the publication of the 5th version of the solution.
Initially, the name OPX2 was chosen during the initial development of the solution within Thales. In 1996, however a spin-off is decided and Planisware is created. At the time, the initial team decided to keep the name of the solution, as it was already known by a few customers.
However, by 2009, with Planisware increasingly successful on a variety of international markets, it was decided to align the name of the solution with the name of the company. In addition, many customers at the time were already referring to the solution by the name of the company, thus making the rationale for the shift even more obvious.
Initial development of the Planisware Enterprise solution
In the 90s, Planisware debuted OPX2, a revolutionary enterprise project portfolio management software designed to enable comprehensive vision and control over the entire organizational portfolio. From the very beginning, OPX2 offered unparalleled configurability and scale-up capabilities.
Throughout the years, OPX2 software rapidly evolved - expanding in both its operational as well as strategic portfolio and decision support capabilities, adding capabilities to address specific business needs, and incorporating industry leading practices, all while maintaining an intuitive interface.
