Project and Portfolio Management

By: Collin Quiring


IDC completed a study on Portfolio Management at the behest of CA.  The study appears to have been about PPM (Project and Portfolio Management) and not specifically tied to software from CA.  That said, they found many interesting facts that I wanted to highlight.


The costs of operations were decreased, resource utilization increased and project redundancy was dramatically reduced or eliminated all together.  There are a number of comments that I can make about the benefits of implementing PPM but I think that the study itself shows numerous benefits so I will just highlight those for now.


Some of the interesting findings:

Time to Market in weeks                          33% improvement

Number of projects managed                   35% increase

Cost per project                                        37% decrease

IT staff productivity                                  14% increase

Payback time                                            7.4 months


This is one more study proving the value of PPM and in tough economic times I would argue that this is even more important than ever!
