Planisware Primary Use Case

John Andrew Kossey
Project portfolio systems consult at a pharma/biotech company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Resource forecasting and demand planning. One can do both short-term and long-term planning. Generic resources and named resources can be structured according to corporate need. Using an integrated Organizational Breakdown Structure (OBS; sometimes called Responsibility) distinct from the Resource Breakdown Structure gives substantial reporting flexibility out of the box. (Of course, each company has to populate those structures with internal data.) A distinct advantage of Planisware Enterprise is that any given customer installation can respond to local priorities, such as scheduling or time reporting, then phase in other priorities in your application roadmap over time. Planisware Enterprise offers very practical dashboards and bubble charts that visualize integrated advanced analytics. KPIs include: resource load and risk levels; net present value; return on investment. Project data cleanly consolidates to portfolio views. Version 6.3 significantly improves data exchange and integration with Office 365 and Google Suite applications. Key project leaders can work productively from within Planisware Enterprise. More than a year ago, Planisware earned ISO 27001 certification. Multiple JIRA servers can connect with Planisware Enterprise 6.3.5. A project manager can select the appropriate mapping sprint for a given project. Please be aware that Planisware Orchestra is a "lightweight" integrated project portfolio management system designed for smaller organizations. It is completely distinct from Planisware Enterprise--the subject of the current review. View full review »
