Project & Portfolio Management Center Overview

HP Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) Center standardizes, manages, and captures the execution of project and operational activities. It provides critical information in real-time to help you make the right investment decisions at the right time.

Today's Project Management Organization (PMO) struggles with time, cost, and resource management challenges—particularly at the aggregate level. Given these daily challenges, it is difficult for IT executives to see which projects and operational activities they should be working on to find out how much is left in their budget, resource capacity levels, and alignment with business needs.

HP PPM Center software helps you overcome these challenges. It provides your PMO with visibility into strategic and operational demand as well as in-flight projects and programs. Financial management capabilities provide real-time visibility into the project lifecycle at the portfolio, program, and project level—giving IT the flexibility and transparency needed for challenging economic conditions."
