Requests & Business Case

Resources and Teams
Address your IT organization's resource challenges: define autonomous teams to carry out your project activities, while using resource forecasting to manage your organizations capacity in the mid- to long-term.
Ensure that key resources/skills shared by several teams are not overallocated and that the total time allocated to maintenance activities is kept in check.
Leverage Insights from Enterprise Architecture
Create connections between strategic planning, IT architecture, and project / product activities :
- Highlight short-term trade-offs and the impacts of project/portfolio decisions, with visibility into IT architecture assets such as applications, interfaces, technologies, and processes.
- Take "to-be" plans from Enterprise Architects into account at the strategic planning level when building roadmaps and budgets.
- Follow planning and delivery of changes to the architecture from projects or workstreams
- Demonstrate the value of architectural initiatives. Consolidate costs from both projects and architectural assets. Create visibility into actual savings against baseline and the IT budget.
Agile and Scaled Agile
Agile is now the de facto standard to deliver change for projects and teams. Large initiatives are increasingly managed using scaled agile methodologies such as DoD, Spotify agile, or the popular SAFe framework.
Improve collaboration and communication through social ppm, document management, and deliverable tracking capabilities. Use Planisware's workbox to keep track of everything you need to know, check, or do.
Above all, Planisware convinced us because of its capability to represent the role-based workflow we required. We made the conscious decision to opt for standard software and to strongly parametrize it in order to give the end user the best possible process support. This absolutely turned out to be the right choice.Christian Hess, Head of Project Portfolio Management, Raiffeisen
