During this webinar, we will discuss issues related to IPM and best practices to streamline your IPM processes to overcome the negative effects of Interfaced Program Management.
The purpose of Integrated Program Management is to plan, analyze, and monitor your projects through an integrated system consisting of people, processes, and tools. IPM provides project managers integrated visibility to the cost, schedule, and technical performance of projects to better ensure profitability with fewer surprises and greater predictability. One recent trend in IPM is to integrate your Integrated Master Schedule with your cost accounting and EVMS requirements. Typical IPM processes require a coordination of multiple tools that are interfaced together to create this holistic visibility between technical performance, cost accounting, and scheduling. This interfaced program management approach has many drawbacks causing project managers to spend lots of time wrestling with data and data related issues such as data latency, data reconciliation, and redundant data entry. Thus, interfaced program management leads to a lack of timely and accurate project visibility, difficulty and delays in month end reporting, and auditability concerns. These inefficiencies are slowing down your ability to recognize and react to program issues and significantly impact project profitability not to mention negatively impacting program managers workload. Dassian and SAP can provide a true methodology to achieve integrated program management that will translate directly to your bottom line.
