Planisware addresses ad-hoc reporting and dynamic data analysis through a dedicated module, called Planisware Explorer.
Planisware Explorer enables the simplicity of building reports that come with standard BI tools - but bypasses the time consuming development needed to expose the Planisware data model in traditional Planisware-BI integration implementations.
- Reduced deployment time and cost
- With direct access to the underlying data structure within Planisware, use of the Planisware Explorer module accelerates the creation and maintenance of datamarts
- Reports created within Planisware Explorer can be embedded within built-in solution screens.
While specialized BI suites are great for focusing on the analysis of cross-system data, Planisware Explorer was built specifically to handle the manipulation of Planisware data and projects.
Dashboards are available directly in the system, while widgets can be integrated into third party portals.
Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
Planisware comes equipped with standard financial and non-financial KPIs, such as return on investment (ROI), net present value (NPV), expected commercial value (ECV), resource load, risks and more.
In addition to the extensive standard list of KPIs, users can add business-specific indicators to tailor the system to their specific needs.
By capturing KPIs routinely, Planisware is able to provide intelligence on trends.
Management by Exceptions
Planisware provides a framework to set and manage dynamic alerts: either automatically, when a specific trigger is reached - i.e. when a milestone slips, a risk is escalated or a budget threshold has been crossed, for instance - or manually, when a project stakeholder creates an issue.
The combination of threshold policies, alerts, and forward looking indicators help managers focus on the most pressing issues at hand.
