PPM Reporting

I am new to PPM and work in the Project office. I have looked through a lot of the PPM reporting and do not find the types of reports that are needed on a week-to-week or month-to-month basis. For instance, managing BACKLOG so that you can meet future demands is a necessity yet I am unable to find a report that provides me with all backlogged tasks (incomplete tasks) across all project and requests.

The Reporting tools in PPM are cryptic and not easy to use.

Are there other recommended reporting tools (Crystal Reports, Jasper, etc) that are recommend to get what we need?

Re: PPM Reporting

Welcome to PPM reporting. :)

The direction HP is going is that reporting will be done in Business Objects, via Webi. This solution is available for 7.5 through PSO now, and is slated to be 'productized' and released (with an OEM BO platform & universe) with PPM 8.1.

Some folks do use Crystal/Jasper/etc. It's up to you, but you probably want keep the upcoming architectural changes to PPM's reporting in mind for your long-term planning.

Hope this helps!

Re: PPM Reporting

WebI.... are you referring to the SAP product or is this just a generic reference to Web BI?

Re: PPM Reporting

Yes, specifically Business Objects Enterprise XI 3.0 (last I heard).

Re: PPM Reporting

Do you know if all data fields will be available for reporting (I hope)? Right now we do a 'data dump' of all our needed fields from PPM to Excel on a weekly basis and run pivot tables and such from that so that we can get the information we seek. You might consider that for your immediate needs.

Re: PPM Reporting

I don't know for sure, maybe someone else in the forum (or any HP lurkers?) can shed some more insight?

We do a similar thing where we have some reports that query out to Excel rather than generating HTML.

Re: PPM Reporting

Hello Stephen,

Also there are 30+ reports ready to use. If u want to see the system I can provide user account on the test system that is open to internet for demo purpose.

Cemi,

I would also be interested in seeing what you have developed. We have Cognos here as well. I have seen BO XI in action in another Oracle database environment and was impressed. I am looking forward to the BO XI implementation within PPM.

Thanks...

Hello Cemi,
Don't want to bombard you with too many requests here :-) but we are currently exploring similar options with PPM 7.5 and Cognos and/or Crystal Reports as well. I wonder if it was possible to let me have a quick glance as well.

I am planning to join HPSU this summer in June and hoping that they will have some kind of demo on this as well.
Thanks.

Hey guys,

 

Seems forum moderator had removed all your Emai addresses. 

Why don't we use private message to ask Cem on this forum?
