Catalog and manage demand for new IT initiatives.

Project Request Management

IT Governance needs two basic functions to be effective — real-time access to all the demands placed on IT and the ability to analyze the value of those demands and the resources available to meet them.

Project Request Management is an integral part of Innotas on-demand IT Governance and lets you:
  • Capture project and work requests directly from your customer base

The Project Management function in the Innotas on-demand IT Governance solution gives you 100% visibility into every aspect of every project. Innotas gives you the ability to:
  • Manage schedules, resources and issues all in a single location
  • Manage virtual teams and provide global collaboration and real-time access
  • Define and schedule project plans or interface with MS Project to import and export projects

Portfolio Management

The Portfolio Management element of IT Governance is vital for IT leaders faced with too many initiatives and the challenge of satisfying the needs of multiple business stakeholders.

With the Innotas on-demand IT Governance solution, your IT organization can access the information necessary to avoid wasting money and resources on the wrong efforts and gain the ability to:
  • Understand each project at every level, from objectives to costs
  • Identify projects that don't warrant investment

Gain full visibility into resource supply and demand.

Resource Management

Gain full visibility into resource supply and demand.
 
In all organizations, IT personnel are pushed to the limit and are under non-stop pressure to deliver on initiatives that support business growth.

The challenge in this environment is to balance the limited supply of IT personnel with keeping IT teams focused on the initiatives having the most business value.

Innotas on-demand IT Governance delivers the vital and instant visibility into your resource capacity and demand. It lets you apply resources appropriately, analyze the current utilization of resources, and revise utilization based on what is most productive for your organization.

Complete initiatives on time and on budget.

Financial Management

Complete initiatives on time and on budget.
 
Time is money, and how you manage time for your staff and resources has a major impact on the financial performance of the IT department and the business itself. Without real-time views into the time and expenses associated with IT initiatives, you might miss opportunities to charge back for billable services, or, worse yet, risk budget over-runs.

The Innotas on-demand IT Governance solution delivers effective tracking of the time and expenses associated with each project and allows you to:
  • Track time and expenses for both billable and non-billable activities
  • Report on and export data into ERP or financial systems
  • Integrate with existing financial systems, which supply required data such as labor cost rates for roles and individual resources

Web Services Application Programming Interface (API)

Seamlessly integrate IT Governance with other essential applications.
 
Because no IT solution stands alone, Innotas on-demand IT Governance integrates with CRM, Service Management, HR, ERP and Business Intelligence and other applications to give you the ability to:
  • Enhance resource management by sharing resource attributes between Innotas and Oracle® PeopleSoft or other HR applications
  • Feed service requests from popular help desk systems such as Remedy, Peregrine, and others to feed service requests into the Innotas Request Management System
  • Synchronize account and contact data between sales and delivery teams through easy integration with Salesforce® and other CRM apps
