Enterprise Project Management - IT Governance and the Program Management Office
Source: Software Spectrum
Organizations are challenged to track and measure the effectiveness of a large number of projects in various aspects of their work, and aligning Information Technology costs with business objectives is becoming increasingly important. Executives--especially those accountable for the success or failure of IT spending–would benefit from better ways to select the most promising projects from a batch of project candidates, efficiently allocate resources among different ongoing initiatives, and evaluate project success from a strategic vantage point. Recently, individual project management applications have begun to coalesce into integrated suites and complete Enterprise Project Management platforms, providing deeper organizational insight into all aspects of project execution both at the tactical and strategic levels. The Microsoft® Office Enterprise Project Management Solution provides a full set of capabilities for project teams, managers, and executives and delivers specific benefits for better IT governance and a higher-functioning Program Management Office.
