17 September 2013

Smarter.PMO Dashboard Application solution for programme and project managers to address their need to report from dial to detail on a timely basis. Supported by a Self-Service BI data centric QlikView GreenStack architecture. Offering accelerated time-to-report, time-to-decide, and time-to-value.

The Smarter.PMO application has gained substantial interest since its showcase at the UKOUG Primavera SIG, 23rd July 2013. Differentia Consulting have already begun to work with a number of the attendees who want to pursue the opportunity of deploying the application over their programme data. The Smarter.PMO solution, allows for deeper and broader insight into project information which in turn drives operational efficiency, improves the ability to anticipate risks and increases earned value. The Controlled agility of the application facilitates better understanding and allows users to anticipate and effectively act on changing project variables to improve quality.

The Smarter.PMO dashboard enables common understanding and collaborative improvement, having a single view of all project disciplines from safety to cost management & risk to project scheduling, enables individuals and teams to make the right decisions at the right time. The Smarter.PMO Dashboard Application encourages collaboration to manage current issues and more importantly empowers by providing the necessary information to make the required process changes to prevent issues recurring. Project disciplines can then be continually learnt from and their combined performance improved, whilst reducing time spent firefighting. The Smarter.PMO Dashboard Application allows for easy governance and control over programme structures and processes. It facilitates engagement with the stakeholders making accountability real. Structural anomalies are instantly identified for correction while externally driven changes can be managed by the Smarter.PMO minimising disruption to individual projects.

“The QlikView Smarter.PMO reporting application puts all of our project information in one place and has cut more than a week’s effort per month from our reporting cycle. The greatest benefits though are having integrated information across all project disciplines enabling us to quickly identify opportunities and issues and providing package level insight in minutes as opposed to days. Differentia Consulting delivered this enterprise ready solution in less than one tenth of the time of a comparable BI offering meaning we anticipate full ROI in under three months. ”
