UMT360 Strategic Portfolio Management Software for Microsoft PPM

The missing strategy execution capabilities you need for your Microsoft work management tools.

Whether they are used individually or together, Microsoft productivity tools lack the powerful project and portfolio management capabilities needed to align execution with strategy. UMT360 can seamlessly integrate those missing capabilities with Project Online, Project for the Web and Azure Boards to help you establish the top-down project portfolio controls needed to accelerate business transformation.

Top Down or Bottom Up – Strategic Portfolio Management for All Work Styles

Managing projects and work has been the traditional domain of execution-oriented professionals, and is by its very nature bottom-up. But regardless of the tools and techniques used, a variety of stakeholders need the top-down controls to ensure all work is align with strategy. Microsoft work management tools lack many of those capabilities, and that’s where UMT360 Strategic Portfolio Management comes in.

Get Started with UMT360 Accelerators for Microsoft

UMT360’s Strategic Portfolio Management Accelerators are discrete, targeted solutions that address some of the critical capabilities lacking in Microsoft’s work management tools. Packaged with the same best practices – based on years of client engagement success – found in our comprehensive enterprise offering, these specific capabilities can be switched on in days, not weeks or months.

Roadmapping

Roadmaps are powerful tools to help ensure that all investment decisions are clearly understood across the organization. By visualizing and communicating key dependencies enterprise-wide, roadmaps serve to help harmonize decisions and track progress across all investments.

Resource Planning

Resources must now be managed across agile, waterfall or even non-project-orientated work systems. Gaining visibility across all resources – and optimizing utilization and capacity planning – is a critical challenge for any organization hoping to fully realize its business strategy.

Portfolio Analysis

Generating what-if scenarios and modeling potential outcomes based on ad-hoc questions used to require teams to stay late and manually crunch numbers. But what if you had the tools to respond to any possible question about any portfolio with just a few clicks?

Demand Management

You never know where project requests might come from. But one thing is clear, to do more than simply choose the best from a bad list of ideas, you’ll need a robust demand management solution to provide enhanced visibility across all work.

Seamlessly Integrate Portfolio Management with Microsoft Work Management Tools

Whether you use Microsoft Project, Azure Boards or some combination of tools, UMT360 can quickly and easily integrate the critical portfolio management capabilities your enterprise is missing.

Microsoft Project Online

If you’re using Project Online and are focused only on project execution, you’re ignoring the second P in PPM – portfolio management. UMT360’s Strategic Portfolio Management software ensures that your organization has both the top-down and bottom-up capabilities you’ll need to go beyond just project management by introducing the portfolio management processes and capabilities to help you truly orchestrate all transformation across the enterprise.

Azure Dev Ops + Azure Boards

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to work management. The reality is that a variety of approaches – from traditional waterfall to Agile and back-of-the-napkin – are all used in various combinations across most enterprises. From simple task management to the strategic business capabilities that drive better decisions making, there are a myriad of capabilities that must work in concert to harmonize all work across the organization. Strategic portfolio management is what helps bring it all together.
