A wealth of information – at your fingertips

PPM Reporting Strategy.jpg

Remember the PPM 9.1 Reporting strategy,  where I described the 3 levels of the PPM 9.1 approach to provide information for all the organization’s stakeholders. 

Then in our other two previous posts, Richard described how HP Executive Summary and HP Financial Planning and Analysis  are integral to the PPM 9.1 reporting strategy.

Today, I want to explore how PPM 9.1 liberates operational data through the PPM Business Objects Universe.   Reporting and operational data has been a challenge throughout the PPM market, until now.

PPM 9.1 ships with an integrated Business Objects universe which is the foundation for operational reporting in PPM 9.1.  This new capability, gives you the power to analyze and query the underlying PPM data to discover actionable information about the performance of their portfolios, projects and processes.   The application of Business Objects creates a rich, robust reporting environment that supports ad-hoc queries in addition to prebuilt reports. 

The initial PPM Business Objects universe delivers several key dimensions of PPM data:

–       Resource Management

–       Financial management

–       Time Management

Future updates to the PPM Universe, will add additional dimensions to the universe.   Such as Project Management, Demand Management etc.  Look for future updates here about when these new dimensions are available.  

We’re very excited about the opportunity to deliver the depth and breadth of reporting capability to the HP PPM community.  With the addition of HP Executive Scorecard and Financial Planning and Analysis, the overall reporting story 

is complete.  Now, everyone from the CIO to the project analyst has the ability to access the information they need to understand and make effective business decisions.

Hopefully, these past few updates has helped to explain how the reporting innovations in PPM 9.1 can help you and your business.
