Power PPM is an end-to-end PMO solution, built on the Microsoft Power Platform, that serves organizations with an overview of their initiatives, programs, and portfolios. The primary objective of Power PPM is to maximize the benefits a company accrues from the initiatives it undertakes. This is achieved by providing the PMO with an end-to-end, top-to-bottom overview by “drilling down” to other data entities.
This release has enhanced user-friendliness. The experience of creating new tasks has been given an update and native views now show standard filters e.g. soft dependencies. Pre-defined filters have been added to the Gantt view as well as creating new cost elements in Power Financials.
On top of this, two new features are introduced for the Portfolio Manager: Power Roadmap and Power Board.
The biggest update in this release is Power Roadmap.
Power Roadmap helps users understand how strategy is connected to execution through a timeline overview, and has been created eventually to eliminate the manual creation of timelines in PowerPoints etc.
Power Roadmap works by enabling users to connect any work item towards strategic areas, that is OKR’s, Portfolios, Programs, Products etc., into one timeline and thus create a real-time overview of the chosen activities. As a result, Power Roadmap provides a way of communicating plans and progress towards the strategy in a high-level overview. This feature will be available to all Power PPM users and will further support our methodology of “Controlled Agility”.
“With Power Roadmap, we’ve created a brand-new solution to solve some of the most complex problems in the era of hybrid and product portfolio management. We are basically bridging the gap of roadmaps, timelines, and release plans, something often found in hand-held Power Points.” Peter Kestenholz, Partner at Projectum.
Power Board is another new feature that is being introduced in Wave 2. A built-in Kanban-style board that supports the process of scoring and prioritization Ideas and new Initiatives.
