Project Portfolio and Work Management is a necessity in today’s organizations. By deploying a PPM system, corporations have a better view of their business for smarter decision making. A true understanding of what work is consuming your most valuable resources as well as where you are spending the most dollars is essential if you want to succeed.
Many organizations are hesitant to invest in project portfolio management systems due to often lengthy and expensive deployments. Plus, end to end PPM and work management solutions must be available on one platform as well as additional lines of business (LOBs) systems in order to truly account for all work and projects within an organization. Finding one system to manage all work (projects, applications, services, products, etc.) has been difficult up until recently. EPM Live has made it possible to manage all this work in one centralized location. In addition, lengthy deployment cycles and necessary customization processes are no longer a roadblock when deploying PPM so all organizations can include all work within their business as well as the processes and methodologies that align to that work without breaking the bank.
EPM Live is the first build to order platform that extends project portfolio management (PPM) to all areas of the business regardless of work focus. Small to large organizations can apply cost saving disciplines such as delivering projects successfully, optimizing resource utilization, and selecting the right work to all business teams including new product development, IT, services, operations, sales and project management. The EPM Live platform significantly reduces time, cost and risk of a typical implementation of an Enterprise Project Management Solution. It comes complete with best practices and project management methodologies configured for various specific industries.

Here’s an example use case – A CIO from a clothing chain goes online and purchase EPM Live for retail. Upon placing the order he receives a personal support page that contains a build-to-order questionnaire. He provides answers about the way his stores and retail operation work, filling in department names, manager contacts and information about processes. When the solution is delivered its pre-configured for retail use and customized with specific store data. With EPM Live deployed employees can share information in collaborative online workspaces increasing productivity. Executives can centrally manage resources, perform analysis and standardize reporting processes across the organization. Industry specific tools right out of the box. Customization without consultants
