Lawson Software announced that software industry veteran and noted analyst Jeff Comport has joined the company as senior vice president of product management. In his new role, Comport oversees product management for the Lawson S3, M3, Strategic Human Capital Management and technology product lines. He reports to Lawson President and CEO Harry Debes and is based in Saint Paul at Lawson's corporate headquarters.

Comport recently was with Gartner, where he was vice president-distinguished analyst responsible for defining and delivering Gartner's strategy and governance research. Comport spent 15 years at Gartner, beginning as a research director and continuing as chief of research and a member of the senior research board responsible for coordinating research themes and consistency across all areas covered by Gartner. Earlier in his career, Comport also held executive product strategy positions at Integral Systems and Criterion Inc.

“Jeff has extensive experience in the strategy, design, development, packaging, implementation and marketing of software products,” said Debes. “He has advised governments, businesses and software vendors throughout the world and has a great ability to simplify complex problems and situations. His portfolio strategist approach to product management will be of great benefit to us, and because cloud computing is a high priority for our future, Jeff joins at a great time to lead our cloud strategy and serve as our principal spokesman on our cloud opportunities. I expect him to work very closely with our group executives and with Guenther Tolkmit, SVP of product development, to deliver the products that best meet the requirements of our customers.”

“Lawson is taking the right approach by focusing on certain industries and meeting the specific needs of those industries,” said Comport. “That's where software functionality needs to go and where our customers want us to take it. At the same time, we have to develop synergies across all our product lines – S3, M3 and Strategic Human Capital Management – and manage the long-term strategic direction of our product lines. That's where my experience as a software portfolio strategist can help and I am confident in our strong product management team that will help me achieve these objectives.”
