North Highland, an Atlanta-headquartered management consulting firm, has acquired UMT360, a Bellevue, WA-based provider of software and services in strategic portfolio management.

Strategic portfolio management (SPM) is a framework for planning, funding, and overseeing all discretionary investments – combining strategy execution management with business and enterprise architecture to help organizations connect and align all execution with strategy.

UMT360’s SPM software helps organizations plan and manage their work and drive business agility. Its features include: standardizing demand and innovation management; resource capacity planning; benefits and outcome management; roadmapping and release management; and what-if scenario modeling.

UMT360’s software was part of Gartner’s first-ever Magic Quadrant for SPM, which released this year.

The company also provides related consulting services in work management consulting and transformation office/project management office optimization.  

UMT360 has 160 employees listed on LinkedIn and has offices in Bellevue, Vancouver, and Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
