Projects and portfolios often struggle to deliver their desired return on investment. Many in the projects business don’t standardize project prioritization, planning and delivery. They select projects without knowing whether they align with strategy. They can’t establish real performance baselines. With these limitations, what result should you expect?
With EcoSys, we’ve always focused on project controls. However, we all know there’s no point controlling a project perfectly if it’s the wrong project to begin with. Similarly, without ensuring your contracts are managed effectively, you can’t really control all aspects of a project.
With the release of EcoSys 8, we are showcasing our expanded portfolio management and contract management capabilities to offer a complete solution for improving the full life-cycle of projects performance. EcoSys is now the first integrated platform in the industry for project performance spanning project portfolio management, project controls and contract management. This allows our customers to benefit from our strengths in project controls and helps them break down siloes that usually isolate portfolios and contracts.
Everything happens in one platform. Other vendors who provide solutions in all three areas really offer three technology products on three different platforms. Our three products – EcoSys Portfolios, EcoSys Projects, and EcoSys Contracts – are on one technology platform. They are fully integrated, so when you select a project from any one of the three products, you’re selecting it from the same list of projects. You don’t have to manufacture a data exchange between the three pieces.
An exciting benefit of this is the ability to recycle data. Project execution data can be recycled that back into EcoSys Portfolios to make sure that your estimates for future projects are that much more accurate through benchmarking.
Listen to this podcast featuring Mark White, senior vice president of projects performance at Hexagon PPM to hear more about the benefits of EcoSys 8, the EcoSys product vision and roadmap.
