With Microsoft Project Online, you manage projects schedules using its powerful scheduling engine. PPM Express works as an additional layer which integrates with Project Online so that you get the best of both worlds: utilize the full power of scheduling and resource management in Microsoft Project Online and use modern and visual experience for portfolio management and total visibility.
Your executive and project management team will mostly use PPM Express – a modern web application for lightweight portfolio management, designed to provide the best and the most comfortable user experience. Built with a strong focus on the data visualization, it uncovers the ‘big picture’ of portfolio landscape for executives and allows to make quick and grounded decisions.
While executives use PPM Express, all project managers will spend most of their time working in Microsoft Project Online – a platform of choice for millions of project managers, a gold standard for project management, schedule management, resource management, and collaboration. From Microsoft Project Online, all data will flow to PPM Express automatically for visibility, transparency, and advanced reporting.
We deploy the industry-proven Microsoft Project Online configuration to your PWA in 1 to 3 business days instead of weeks or months. Our configuration solution has been built using the best practices from over 100 Project Online implementations for the world’s leading enterprises. And we will do it for free.
PPM Express is designed for executives, PMO and project managers and addresses issues of portfolio visibility and status reporting, where management cannot see instant updates on the ‘big picture’ of how the projects are going. PPM Express helps executives to stop flying blind in making critical decisions that define project success, and start relying on the trustworthy, detailed and up-to-date information.
Hybrid and multi-platform project management is a new reality. Do your teams use Azure DevOps or Jira for agile projects? That’s great – as PPM Express supports all these systems and allows to run it in parallel with Project Online. We aggregate all the details in the PPM Express, no matter if it is waterfall or agile, scrum or Kanban. Connect Jira/Azure DevOps to PPM Express and see all projects across the organization, no matter where and how they are managed.
Most organizations use milestones and iterations to plan their projects, which sometimes can be counted in hundreds. There are multiple releases and complex dependencies between these projects, and at some point, mangers simply cannot oversee all these simultaneous processes without visual interpretation. Our visualization of release information helps manages to see an up-to-date release planning chart for all projects and identify which of them need attention at this particular moment.
Data visualization, business intelligence and reporting are cornerstones of efficient project decision making on all levels. PPM Express includes a ready-to-use Power BI pack with over 50 reports for portfolio, project, resource reporting. Just connect your PWA, Jira, Azure DevOps or Office 365 Planner and enjoy the Power BI magic turning data into insights, right decisions and successful releases.
