With that said industry experts are raising the issue of the lack of a single data-sharing platform that would allow business managers and executives to unify disparate financial, project, and operational data to collaborate effectively ado achieve the highest ROI. Specifically IT organizations are confronted with this challenge; is Integrated IT Portfolio analysis (IIPA) is the answer?

There are many benefits to implementing IIPA, it’s designed to help facilitate automated processes for one or many functional silos. IIPA gives department managers the tools to provide accurate information to stakeholders and executives so they can understand the current state of each department, allowing executives to make better strategic decisions and plan for increased business growth.

The capabilities of IIPA are desirable for businesses who view their IT function as a critical strategic component of the business.  IT can enable or cripple the ability to deliver projects and services to market and generate revenue.

IIPA is also for organizations that build products as the IT department serves as its core and requires regular technical changes to underlying components. IIPA can help these types of companies maintain and integrate the respective IT portfolio views required to fully understand and analyze the IT function before changes are made to it, reducing time, cost and risk.

Additionally, if you characterize your business as mainly operational, and IT is not typically viewed as strategic to your business’ success, IIPA will help you identify opportunities to modernize the IT function and reduce underlying IT overhead costs. Cost optimization is one universal benefit of practicing IIPA, but the additional use of IIPA to analyze IT change from a strategic perspective is a more powerful and compelling capability. 

In our newsletter featuring Gartner research, EPM Live presents our answer to IIPA with our latest product release, EPM Live 4.3 – a PPM Work Management Platform. Instead of your typical single solution software, EPM Live has created a platform that supports multiple business verticals with cutting-edge build-to-order technology that extends Project Portfolio Management to all areas of the enterprise regardless of work focus.  EPM Live brings all work together for true IIPA including project, products, applications and services. 

EPM Live’s App Marketplace, allows organizations to add on additional line of business (LOB) applications with a simple click of a button without the need for another platform investments. This allows organizations to build on their PPM solutions at their own pace to bring truly integrated work solutions to every team in the business including Sales, Operations, Application Teams, Product Development Teams, Service Teams and PMOs.   

EPM Live apps come in many forms:

  • Single Apps-  Add a specific feature to your PPM and work management environment such as timesheets
  • Bundled Apps- Add multiple features/apps such as service requests that include a service request planner and service request task list
  • Site Apps- Add full solution apps (LOB apps) that include all the tools, disciplines and methodology you need to manage a specific type of work for a specific area of business including Sales, Operations, Application Teams, Product Development Teams, Service Teams and PMOs

EMA Analyst Firm Names EPM Live a Next Generation Visionary Leader in IT Management

Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading industry analyst and consulting firm, recently released their Next Generation IT Management research paper, where EPM Live was included and awarded for our advancement in fully integrated IT Management.

The Radar Report outlines the industries top platforms who have successfully integrated support, project and service management on a common architectural platform with integrated resource management and time tracking capabilities.  

So what exactly is Integrated IT Management?  EMA calls it Next Generation IT Management (NGITM), platforms that are intended to support both project and service management on a common architectural platform, with integrated resource management and time tracking.

Until now there have been no direct answers to easily integrating IT portfolios with other business aspects in one system. Organizations have had to use separate lines of business and pull various data from different systems, a timely and often cumbersome task.  

EPM Live is one of the first organizations to answer directly to the Integrated IT Management issue.

This summer EPM Live released EPM Live 4.3, within this launch we introduced the EPM Live Apps Marketplace and our newest IT Management application, ITEngine. ITEngine is a complete solution that allows organizations to manage all IT projects and work in a single, centralized system and is our direct response to the Integrated IT Portfolio Management issue.

With ITEngine, users are able to funnel all work through a common governance and control structure.

Gain improved visibility for better decision-making, lower risk and higher ROI. With ITEngine, better utilize your best resources and better control your schedules by leveraging multiple scheduling tools and methods to optimize successful delivery of project, products and work.

Within the report Charlie Betz, EMA Analyst noted, “Of all the vendors, EPM Live perhaps best exemplifies the EMA framework of Demand/Supply/Execute. They correctly note that ‘the ability to manage project tasks alone is no longer enough. In order to get a true picture of project performance, all work that affects a project portfolio must be considered. The need to maintain disparate systems to manage various types of work such as applications, products, projects and services, is no longer required. Work management brings all projects and all work together for true reporting and maximum efficiency.’”

EPM Live’s platform is the first build-to-order platform that extends Project Portfolio Management (PPM) to all areas of the business regardless of work focus. ITEngine is one of EPM Live’s many Apps offered in its revolutionary app marketplace that is included when you purchase the EPM Live Work Management Platform.

IT managers are now looking to systems that unify the disparate financial, project, asset and operational views stakeholders need to communicate across IT silos. EPM Live has focused on this area for some time and is the first to respond. 

We recently launched our Integrated IT Management application for the EPM Live Platform.

EPM Live Transforms the Future of PPM Work Management- Introducing EPM Live 4.3

EPM Live is proud to unveil the future of PPM Work Management…….EPM Live 4.3  You have patiently waited and the time is now, the future is here!  We have all heard the term “Work Management” in the space for quite some time but once you dig into it a bit further, most vendors who have promised Work Management to organizations can only come through with new task types that are labeled after various types of work found in organizations today.  The truth is Work Management is much more than a task type, it’s work that affects your bottom line and in turn assumes resources, costs and time.  For that reason, EPM Live is the true Work Management platform that brings all this work together into one system.   This work is just as valuable as project tasks and requires the same disciplines to manage it.  Click here for the latest news on the 4.3 release!

EPM Live transforms the way organizations manage this work by applying key disciplines based on the area of work focus.   For example, if you have Service Management Requests, you will most likely have a process that surrounds them.  Assignments, reports, SLAs, work logs, workflows, and customer collaboration functionality must be introduced.  EPM Live brings the entire infrastructure of how Service Management Requests are handled within your EPM Live environment.  It’s not a task type, it’s a new line of business.  A new line of business that can be built, without coding, by your own resources, right on top of your PPM solution.  Now, image that power at your own fingertips including all the work found in most organizations today; the time for change is now.

EPM Live 4.3 is nothing short of a revolutionary movement.  This release is a game changer for the PPM Work Management industry for many reasons:

  • EPM Live officially transforms the way organizations manage projects and work by bringing all work efforts together on one platform without the need for integration. Imagine having one system for applications, services, projects and other work so your resources can focus on getting the work done and not tracking the work in multiple line of business (LOB) systems.
 
  • EPM Live is the first build to order PPM Work Management platform that allows organizations to build their own customized Work Management solution by adding and adopting functionality as they need it without the need for coding or additional consulting fees. Imagine the various needs you may have had to date to add various types of work to your PPM system such as service requests, timesheets, bug lists, etc.  Now you can, and with one click of a button!  Add it as you need it!
 
  • EPM Live is the first to bring the power of complete, integrated Work Management Apps to your Project, Portfolio and Work Management solutions.  EPM Live’s App Marketplace brings competitive advantage to all organizations by allowing them to efficiently and cost effectively bring PPM disciplines to every aspect of their business.  Build it as you need it and enjoy it for FREE, just because you are an EPM Live customer.  Imagine downloading functionality that may typically come with a price tag of 200 additional dollars per user and have it automatically integrate into your current PPM Work Management platform within seconds.  Sounds pretty amazing to me!
  • In addition to the above, EPM Live has many more new enhancements and features that make our daily workload easier to manage.  From new scheduling tools, to enhanced user community tools, to additional reporting options, to many more feature improvements, EPM Live is a powerful platform you will not want to go without any longer.  Try it Now for Free!

EPM Live Ensures PMs Never Lose to Scope Creep Again

Scope creep is the dreadful culprit of lost profits, disheartened resources, missed deadlines, and frustrated clients and stakeholders. When clients ask for one more tiny feature, and then another slight change, and then an extra hour here and there, as every experienced PM knows, it all adds up. The onset of little changes and delays sneakily drains resources, hours, and costs and before you know it, your project is in sad shape.  Poor scope management is the downfall of many project managers and can result in the loss of their credibility and even their job.  

However, this problem is completely preventable with the right tools and methods of communication. Never let scope creep ruin your project ever again! Here are a few ways to avoid the problem once and forever.

1-      Have a scope management plan from the beginning. Show your client or project owner what a change order form is, when and why you would use it, and what it looks like so they know what to expect if you need one.

  • Post the change order form in your documents library on WorkEngine or leverage WorkEngine’s out-of-box change request module to track your changes.  The fields can be customized to map to your current form if applicable. 

2-      Explain to the client or project owner that change control is the best way to make THEM successful. Having a paper trail of changes, reasoning, and resulting impacts provides the detailed information they need to explain any delays or changes to their management and external audiences. It also makes sure that everyone is on the same page as far as what is in scope or out of scope so there are no resulting misunderstandings.

3-      Talk to your project team about the importance of providing updates and alerting you if there is a problem or if a task is taking longer than expected.

  • Team members can update tasks in their view on WorkEngine and write a note to the PM about issues, concerns, time, risk, or scope. The PM will then be alerted of the change and can make decisions about next steps.

4-      Get in the habit of submitting a change order form for every request that results in a modification of scope, budget, resources, risk, or time. The form is not just for changes to costs or time. It’s all part of good PM documentation and clear communication.

5-      Submit a change order form and discuss any scope modification BEFORE you actually perform that change.

6-      Meet with your client or project owner on a weekly or more frequent basis. In this meeting, go over change orders in person and make sure to get an actual signature or written agreement before proceeding with additional work.

  • Again, keep track of change orders in the documents library in WorkEngine or use the out-of-box change request module.

7-      Update the project plan with each change and add a notes column to record details about why it was needed, the overall impact, and when it was approved. Create baselines and each scope change that affects the schedule should result with a new baseline to track the overall impact.

  1. Using EPM Live’s Project Publisher, changes made on the WorkEngine project site, can be easily merged back into the Microsoft Project file.

Using these steps will ensure that scope is well-managed and never creeps up on you again. To learn more about the ability to manage tasks, changes, alerts, and integration with Microsoft Project, review the information on EPM Live about WorkEngine, and Project Publisher

The Long Term Value of SaaS PPM Applications – An EPM Live Analysis

By now everyone has heard of  “the cloud” or “SaaS” (Software as a Service).  Its on-demand, flexible and can save you time and money. But information on the long term benefits of moving your business to the cloud has been less available still casting a cloud of doubt for many organizations. EPM Live understands the confusion surrounding cloud apps and in this article I will take a in-depth look at the benefits, the risks, costs and ROI for cloud applications.

Cloud applications continue to gain popularity in enterprise applications but there are still many questions surrounding the cloud, what are the benefits and what is the ROI for organizations who are leveraging them? I recently read a paper from Forrester on the ROI of cloud Apps. Forrester’s recent budgets survey showed that 51% of firms plan to increase spending on software-as-a-service, while only 9% plan to decrease spend.

Companies are attracted to fast deployment speeds, low upfront costs, and ongoing flexibility to scale up or down as needs change. Many SaaS solutions also offer a more user friendly UI than their on-premise competitors due to their more recent introduction or the providers’ ability to rapidly update the UI through automatic, seamless upgrades.

How do you know if leveraging cloud applications is the right move for your company? In the Forrester article they offered up their Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) model, four key questions to help companies determine the ROI of cloud applications.  

 1. Benefits – How will your company benefit from cloud applications?

2. Costs – How will your company pay, both in hard costs and resources, for cloud applications?

3. Risks – How do uncertainties change the total impact of cloud applications on your business?

4. Flexibility – How does this investment create future options for your organization?

Key Benefits of a cloud application include:

(In a recent survey, Forrester found that 26% of cloud subscribers plan to increase the number of cloud vendors they work with over the next year.)

· Faster deployment speed

· Reduced support needs (SaaS providers typically include a help desk in the subscription reducing or eliminating IT support)

· Simpler, more frequent upgrades

· Better user adoption

 

Key costs on SaaS Applications:

The primary cost associated with cloud applications is the ongoing rental fee for using the application, often per user per month or usage-based. Cloud applications require more focus on contracting, SLAs, and performance management. That being said, there is a significant reduction of other costs such as internal infrastructure and hardware requirements.  Many cloud applications don’t offer full suite solutions meaning firms often face a fragmented, multiple application landscape as they move more and more technology to the cloud. This multivendor environment means additional costs for areas like integration, provisioning, end user support, upgrade management, testing, and workflow.  EPM Live does offer a full suite of solutions including PPM, application lifecycle management, new product development, professional services automation, etc.  Overall, the cost of EPM Live’s SaaS solution is significantly less than an on-premise deployment. 

 

What are the risks?:

No new trend is ever without risk. Here are two key risks to consider; Vendor viability as the market shakes out, and Vendor lock-in. Vendor viability risks are increased as this early market moves at such a fast pace. Users can become “hooked” on user-friendly cloud applications. Business users may strongly resist switching from an application they like. Also, most vendor switches will require data migration and implementation costs to move to a new solution.  Businesses will always be faced with ongoing decisions such as upgrading, adopting new trends, and investing in the latest and greatest technology.  As mentioned before, every decision can result in a risk; however, to maintain competitive advantage and scale with the times, businesses will find that the benefits far outway the risks. 

 

The Cloud Business Value:

Forrester released a quantitative assessment of the economic implications of cloud applications. They evaluated the key drivers of benefits, costs, and risks for an organization moving from on-premise to the cloud. Forrester found that the Total Economic Impact Analysis for CRM cloud applications are 20% ROI payback between 12 and 24 months, for ERP applications a 6% ROI payback in more than 2 years, and for business productivity applications Forrester found a 27% ROI payback between 12 to 24 months.

In this early market of SaaS applications and with the highest ROI of the three business sectors analyzed in Forrester’s research it’s no wonder many companies are leveraging business productivity applications. At EPM Live we believe in the power and flexibility of the cloud and unlike many vendors on the market today our online solution is a full suite application for the entire organization. Besides our core Project Portfolio and Work Management solutions, EPM Live is also leveraged by many organizations for New Product Development and Professional Services. Our apps allow organizations to bring all work and all departments onto one centralized platform increasing productivity, viability and user adoption.
