BI for Project Management
Project Management - Monitor and Analyze; Choose and Transform
Even with an enterprise project management system or solution, consulting companies, internal project management teams and other businesses that provide project management services often fail to meet objectives. Without a meaningful way to establish goals and track milestones and project results, the enterprise cannot learn from its mistakes, forecast resources, predict revenue or improve its competitive position in the market.
Project management software and processes provide some data and information with which the team, project managers and executives can track and evaluate project success. However, these systems fall short of providing robust analytics, key security features, and flexible views to enable the business user to see information in a way that is meaningful to them. While some systems provide components of necessary features and functionality, they do not offer aggregated data to monitor or evaluate results or trends for teams, individuals, projects, or processes or performance over a time series, e.g., by month, year, quarter, or by region, manager, type of project or other categorization factors. Nor to these solutions provide automated alerts or personalised dashboards with the latest information, integrated from enterprise data sources to ensure that the user has the information they need to take appropriate corrective action and to understand the true status of the project, the team and every activity and interdependent task.
True Business Intelligence enables the project team and project manager to manage milestones and project timelines at the individual project level and across projects so that resource allocation, equipment, reporting and other project factors are optimised. Aggregation of project information enables the team to better manage multiple projects for one client or many clients and to drill down to information for an activity, task or individual team member. Project managers can share information, slice and dice, drill down with KPI for Project Management templates to determine the cause of a problem, establish strategy, and evaluate tactical and operational results at a summary level and at a detailed level for an individual task or contributor.
