Project and Portfolio Management
Advanced planning and management of projects
Project Portfolio Management (PPM) is a key management function whose success requires disciplined effort. To be effective, project managers must be able to continuously monitor projects, portfolios and programs to ensure that several key actions are taken. They need a tool that allows them to ensure that strategic investments are aligned with corporate priorities, delivered on time and on budget, and meet requirements and specifications.
Managing the above challenges requires project management capabilities that simply cannot be supported by pen and paper or first-generation software tools. Innovative project management solutions must be able to encompass all project team members and automate multiple critical management tasks. They also must provide analytical and alert capabilities to identify problems before they impact margins and customer satisfaction.
