Innotas Announces Expansion of Predictive Insights in its Cloud-based Project Portfolio Management Solution

New resource workbench and impact analysis capabilities enable IT and PMOs to “look around corners” for improved portfolio planning and resource allocation

San Francisco, 05/11/2016 -- 

Innotas today launched a new version of its cloud project portfolio management solution with expanded predictive insights to help improve portfolio decision making and resource optimization. At the core of this release are new resource workbench and impact analysis capabilities that enable PMOs to forecast the impact of their portfolio and resource allocation decisions. Innotas is a leading provider of Cloud-based Project Portfolio Management (PPM) solutions that offer a seamless way to manage project portfolios, resources and applications across the enterprise.

The Innotas PPM software provides IT, PMOs, and project managers with resource-centric tools for predictive portfolio planning, project execution, resource tracking, and measuring project portfolio outcomes.

New capabilities unveiled today include:

*Resource Workbench—Innotas PPM now provides resource managers with a new seamless, consolidated view into all resource assignments and open demand by roleenabling predictive insights into when to hire, who is overextended, where to allocate available capacity, and when to forecast resource bottlenecks.

*Impact Analysis - Innotas PPM provides a new visual mapping of how portfolio entities, such as a resource, application, or project, are connected throughout the enterprise. This new capability provides predictive insights into the rippling network effects of a decision by highlighting relationships, dependencies, and inter-connectedness of affected-portfolio entities. IT and PMOs are better equipped to develop impact assessments of any planned or proposed portfolio change, such as reallocating a resource, retiring an application, or replacing servers or infrastructure.

*Updated User Experience and Interface – Several visual updates have been consolidated into this release to provide a better overall user experience for all user types. This includes an updated look and feel to Innotas for mobile and timesheet approvals that saves navigation time, with improved (?) self-service administration and permissions setting screens for quicker configuration. These enhancements contribute to improving the overall user experience of the Innotas solution suite.
