Your Business Challenges
The value that an organization derives from PPM information may increase, stagnate, or if not well managed, decrease over time. As organizations evolve and business needs change, the PPM data captured, reports and dashboards—as well as the reporting processes—can become misaligned to business requirements, product capabilities and user expectations.
In some cases, organizations are reluctant to discontinue once highly valued reports that now clutter their systems. In other cases, organizations haven’t yet adjusted to address emerging business needs using readily available PPM information.
Additionally, as an organization’s PPM maturity improves to support disciplines such as resource, financial and program management, their PPM information strategy should be reviewed and refined. Meanwhile, users expect greater employee self-service for direct and quick access to information.
These common situations present opportunities for vast improvements to address challenges such as:
- Low or inconsistent usage of PPM information across the organization.
- Underserved stakeholders who value better access to more valuable PPM information.
- Poor performance processing reports.
- Outdated report libraries that yield marginal value.
- Unnecessarily high administration cost and effort to maintain reports and dashboards.
