A growing demand for project managers and a skills shortage in this field has seen many project managers take on increasing workloads, with only 15% of project managers managing one project at a time, according to a recent study by Ganttic. To keep pace organisations must future-proof their project management processes and unlock efficiencies through the introduction of modern technologies such as low-code design and development.

With many low-code platforms on the market, Microsoft’s Power Platform is one of the top contenders having been named a leader in Gartner’s 2023 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms for the fourth consecutive year. Storm’s partner Projectum has created Power PPM, a future-ready project management solution built on Microsoft’s Power Platform. Microsoft has been a major player in the project management software space with the Microsoft Project solution stack for many years and with the rise of Power Platform and increased appetite for the flexibility it offered, Projectum created Power PPM to deliver a modern solution that offers advanced functionality and additional flexibility options based on organisation's needs. This solution is allowing project managers to take advantage of low-code in a way that will help transform their working day.

Below we explore some of the key capabilities of Power PPM.

Project & Program Management

Power PPM acts as a central space for users to manage projects with all critical project data information available in a single place. Project information from the project timeline, KPIs, financials, stakeholders, and risks are available on demand empowering project managers to stay on top of projects with a user-friendly central system.

Portfolio Management

Power PPM allows organisations to create and manage portfolios from the top down. Staying on top of all programs, projects and initiatives helps users to balance investments and overall objectives in line with project execution. All this information easily available helps businesses to make decisions based on the most up-to-date data and generate what if scenarios too.

Project Timelines

Power PPM provides users with powerful roadmap planning and timeline capabilities creating transparent and easy project planning. Gantt representation and visualization can be tailored to suit the needs of each organisation. The Power PPM timeline can also be added to any work entity from projects, programs and workstreams to monitor cross-project progress.

Resource Management

Projectum's Team Planner module helps simplify resource planning and capacity management. Team Planner allows users to allocate and request resources, view and manage capacity and monitor all demand and allocation scenarios. Team Planner allows for real-time transparency between project mangers and resource managers helping to prevent any capacity issues.

Seamless Collaboration

Power PPM optimises team collaboration with native Microsoft Teams integration. Project team members can update progress on all work items from tasks to risks without having to leave the Microsoft Teams application. This makes it easier for team members to collaborate with a specific project team too delivering an enhanced user experience.

Easy Reporting

Streamline reporting with Projectum's Power Hub. Harnessing the capabilities of Power Platform, Power Hub creates data baselines and snapshots from any historical point in time and provides trend and AI analysis for reporting. Power Hub also brings together data from different sources for deeper analysis of business data to empower data-driven decision making.
