HP Project and Portfolio Management (PPM): We Know How to Keep the Lights On

With 13 minutes 28 seconds to go in the third quarter and the 49ers in possession of the football, anticipation was building across the country…



The Super Bowl XLVII host,  the New Orleans Mercedes-Benz Superdome, may have not been able to keep the lights on, but HP Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) customers sure can. 


Many organizatinos are currently asking themselves if they should acquire a PPM soluion. They wonder if they should add yet another layer to increasing responsibilities; especially when they are being asked to reduce IT costs, not generate more.


The answer is that a solid PPM solution delivers precisely what IT executives most need:

  • Full visibility into all IT initiatives
  • The capability to manage portfolios
  • The capacity to determine priorities

IT executives are facing tough decisions during these equally tough economic times, and the impact of their choices can either bolster an organization or ultimately lead to its demise.


By using HP PPM to manage decision making, IT’s delivery of strategic projects and KTLO work is quantifiably clear. Management dashboards provide cross-project and cross-application visibility, allowing IT executives to make resource allocation decisions based on fact.This full visibility into all the work of IT is imperative to cutting unnecessary costs and optimizing resources.


Studies show that IT operations spend 70 percent of their time delivering sustaining work or KTLO activities. In other words, an organization must be able to keep the lights on first in order for it to be able to shift its focus to business innovation and technological modernization.


Keep your lights on with us and shift your focus to your business.
