Planview Customers Inspire Convergence of Work and Resource Management in New Product Release

Innovative user experience for core PPM capabilities streamlines interactions and improves productivity

Reading, UK - May 20, 2014 - Today at its Horizons Customer Conference in Berlin, Planview® announces its newest product release, Planview Enterprise version 11.2. Working with a 130-member customer advisory group focused on core work and resource management capabilities, Planview designed the release to meet the needs of today's portfolio management professionals across the enterprise and span a broad range of end-user maturity levels from novice to expert.

Rendered through the product's new user experience (UX) introduced last year, the release includes a wide range of enhancements beyond the new work and resource experience, including Microsoft® PowerPoint-embedded interactive portfolio analytics, and enhanced application and service portfolio management. In addition, the release includes an updated version of Planview's ideation management solution and more than 220 other upgrades.

The Convergence of Work and Resource Management

Historically, many organisations have separated the project management and resource management disciplines, and many PPM products have evolved to support this model. In today's business climate of constrained resources, resource management is becoming central to project execution and requires seamless integration. Because customers want to manage projects and people in the same view in line with how they work, Planview has combined the two in this release.

"In designing any new UX there are basic fundamentals to be followed. Building a breakthrough product takes those fundamentals and infuses them with the domain expertise of a wide range of customers. That is what our customer advisory process is all about and the results are very exciting," said Patrick Tickle executive vice president of products for Planview. "Our customers drove us to merge work and resources, and the Planview team took that feedback and created the innovative pivot that brings the convergence to reality in an elegant fashion."

The pivot is a single click, seamless interface that allows users to switch from work to resources in a single integrated view. Users can now more easily create work plans and assign resources with real-time visibility to existing commitments. They can monitor all resources on their projects in a consolidated view to better identify and resolve conflicts. In addition, they can easily adjust task schedules and effort profiles on their projects in one place and pivot back and forth between screens easily.

"The more intuitive user interface in Planview Enterprise 11 provides a better user experience for our project managers," said Jason Vogel, information services manager, J.B. Hunt Transport Services Inc. "I am excited to see this same approach applied to the work and resource management areas of the product. Often, our project managers and resource managers are the same person so integrating project and resource management functionality into the same screen will be a huge win for our users."

Live Data to Microsoft PowerPoint

Planview Enterprise provides organisations with the data needed to make informed portfolio and resource management decisions. While many visualization tools exist, the reality is that PowerPoint is the most common medium used to present information to make portfolio decisions. To that end, Planview Enterprise 11.2 allows users to embed new live interactive analytics and reports directly into PowerPoint presentations, including dynamic charts, multi-paged dashboards, and tabular reports. Meetings and presentations come to life with interactive analytics with immediate access to underlying data, allowing for collaborative decision making and scenario analysis.

Enhanced Portfolio Management for Applications and Services

Planview has extended the at-a-glance ribbon and configurable tiles to applications and services portfolios. Now, enterprise architects and portfolio owners can more easily access the key metrics, KPIs, notifications, and financials they need to make more informed decisions about the applications and services that support the business.

Ideation Management
Planview Enterprise Ideation Management has enhanced dynamic navigation, making it easier to access, implement, and collaborate on ideas across the business. New dashboards give administrators the ability to monitor the number of ideas along with the number of votes and comments. The new interface enables users to add images, documents, and comments to an idea.

The release will be available later this quarter for both SaaS and on-premise customers. For more information, visit http://www.planview.com/planview-enterprise-11/.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.

Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
