Benefits to Enterprise IT

Understanding the complete breadth of IT projects and project portfolios in an enterprise can be challenging. Legacy project and portfolio management systems can add a lot of overhead to tracking resources, time sheets, and planning. A dedicated project manager typically has to re-enter information from disparate systems, and it is often difficult for individual project contributors to share their knowledge. With ServiceNow Project Portfolio Management, IT can:

  • Improve Visibility Into Projects
    • Create personalized dashboards for executive visibility into projects and project portfolios
    • Maximize efficiency of project execution with easy organization of project steps into work queues and multiple projects into portfolios
    • Ensure that everyone knows what they need to know with Gantt charts, automated notifications and milestone tracking, and on-demand and scheduled reports
  • Keep Project Teams Informed
    • Consolidate work queues to help resources manage project work in parallel to their day-to-day operational responsibilities
    • Keep workers and managers in synch with consolidated work queues and an understanding of the status of every task, project and portfolio
