Key challenges in today's organizations
 Providing executive staff with project health & resource
requirements
 Understanding the impact of new projects on the existing project
queue
 Providing improved resource allocation management
 Collaboration and communication across and within project
teams
 Addressing the organizational change that is required to meet
the vision of moving to the next level of project management
 Integration of existing project details into a new tool
 Task management and monitoring progress & closures

Pre-requisites for PPM
 Decide on a SDLC methodology
 Default SDLC methodology in PPM is IBM Rational Unified Process (RUP)
based iterative Software Development Methodology since RUP can be
applied to all types of projects universally. PPM is flexible enough to adapt
to other methodologies such as Agile, Test Driven Development etc.
 Simplify data loading
 Import project plans from CSV file format after creating phases and
iterations in PPM. VIVA team can help with manual data entry of project
data.
 Plan and implement a viable resource utilization strategy
 PPM provides resource leveling options for multiple projects. However, all
tasks of each project resource should be loaded in PPM, and resources
should perform tasks only in PPM.
 Update task/deliverable progress for reliable reporting
 The heart of PPM reporting is task level update. PPM gives real-time
reporting for status for each project at resource level and task level with
built-in timesheet management. Resources have specified roles and need
to perform task-level updates constantly for each project.
