enterprise project portfolio management (EPPM)

A higher-level, more integrated type of project / product portfolio management. EPPM may include different types of portfolios including new product portfolios, cost saving project portfolios, in-market product portfolios, technology portfolios etc. Because EPPM requires a comprehensive, end-to-end and real-time collection of information, the concept is most often discussed together with the strategic use and implementation of integrated PPM software (such as Planisware).
