Dates: 04/22/2014

 

webinar_icon_new2-140x106

Social software trends have changed dramatically over the last few years.  Organizations are no longer content with the basic features that social software used to offer.  Their requirements are no longer limited to document collaboration and centralized conversation.  As organizations adapt to the new social paradigm where work productivity is now heavily related to the way we communicate and interact with each other, the needs for more specialized social software is becoming more predominant.  
 
Organization leaders are being tasked with finding tools that their employees will choose to use, not those that have been enforced upon them.  Do you enforce your email system on your workers or do they choose to use it because it is necessary for them to use in order to be productive?  What are the critical capabilities of social software today and how do you go about finding the right solution to ensure user adoption?

Recent trends have shown that businesses must embrace a new generation where employee engagement is crucial to the organization’s success.  We must now foster a technology-driven work environment that closely mimics the social experiences that employees have outside of work.  As employees are empowered to share their knowledge, build relationships, execute on work in the way that works best for them, and act as community leaders and key contributors, businesses will begin to see that engaged employees produce more value.  They identify with corporate goals and care about business results. 

How do organizations align with this new trend without introducing risks commonly associated to a behavioral shift across the workforce?  Organizations from all over the world are looking for Enterprise Project and Social Work Management platforms that support their diverse teams and promote collaboration and efficiencies across the business. These platforms offer a broad set of functionality allowing users the ability to create, organize and share information, as well as find, connect and interact with each other.

webinar_icon_new2

During this week’s Technical Tuesday webinar, we’d like to take you inside EPM Live to show you how data flows from one place to another. Specifically, we will explain how data gets populated into several project fields such as Project Start, Project Finish, Project Work, Project Percent Complete, etc. 

EPM Live offers two project update methods: Manual and Schedule Driven. Selecting one or the other for a given project makes a difference to the values of the mentioned fields above when you publish your project schedule. This webinar will clear up questions like, “Why is it, that after I publish my project schedule, there are some visual discrepancies in my Project Start and Project Finish dates?”

We will explain why you might use one separately or in conjunction with the other. Join us for thisTech Tuesday where we will demonstrate how we use both project update methods available in EPM Live.

webinar_icon_new2

During this week’s Technical Tuesday we’d like to take you inside EPM Live to show you how to use the Software Development App (Agile)! EPM Live makes selecting a work management approach easy. A key distinction between Agile and the more traditional waterfall approach to project management is all about flexibility. So which is better – the Agile or Waterfall methodology?  Both are very different approaches used to achieve a product in the end. Really understanding how your organization and management team functions is the key to selecting the right work management approach. Whether you are using the traditional waterfall method or the Agile method, EPM Live makes using one method or a combination of project management methods possible. If your organization is using or considering using Agile then EPM Live offers a simple yet powerful solution.

EPM Live also provides the platform for and easy integration between portfolio management, project management, and Agile management. By integrating EPM Live’s Project Portfolio Management App with the EPM Live Software Development App you can easily manage your software development projects using the waterfall approach to project management and/or the Agile iterative planning method to effectively keep track of all your projects, tasks, issues, backlog tasks, user stories, bugs, etc. You can build your own projects using the EPM Live Project Planner, Agile Planner, or Microsoft Project.  With EPM Live by Upland, you can do the right work and do the work right with whichever project management method is best for your organization.

So how do I begin? EPM Lives’ Software Development App makes using the Agile approach to software project management simple, yet powerful.  Join us August 13th during our Tech Tuesday where we will demonstrate how we use the Software Development (Agile) App.
