Re: What does ITG Stand for?

Hi,

 

HP say on their website :

 

« It is HP PPM (Formerly called Mercury ITG, Kintana). »

 

ITG means « IT Governance ».

 

Maybe it is the answer...

Re: What does ITG Stand for?

IT Governance was the predecessor of PPM.

A rough version timeline: the product was Kintana up to 4.5, 5.0, and 5.5.

About version 6.0 Mercury was acquired by HP and it became ITG for a few versions.

Then HP changed it to Project and Portfolio Management about version 7.0.

Re: What does ITG Stand for?

Minor correction to the timeline: We started using the product when the latest release was 6.0 SP3. It was known at that time as IT Governance and was a product of Mercury. Mercury was bought by HP a couple of years later. I think they rebranded it as PPM when they released 7.0 but we never went to that level and my memory is a bit fuzzy on the specific timing of the change in names.

What Jim said is accurate.

 

HP PPM Center was named Mercury IT Governance from 2003 (when Mercury acquired Kintana) to late 2006 (when Mercury was acquired by HP).

 

One picture being worth a thousand words, I attached the HP PPM Center Timeline where you can see the different name changes (and releases) of the product.
