HP Project and Portfolio Manager Software
HP Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) Center Mobility Access is an HP PPM Center solution that enables project and portfolio management process approvals from a user’s mobile or desktop e-mail.
IT executives and managers today need real-time visibility into the entire IT investment portfolio. Instituting better business process controls, improving portfolio prioritization, and implementing consistent quality practices—without breaking the budget or further burdening the staff—has become increasingly important in today’s economic environment.
HP PPM Center software helps you address these challenges. It provides IT executives with real-time visibility into IT investment activities under evaluation or underway at any given moment. Stakeholders have the ability to step back to see which projects and programs are truly aligned with business objectives and prioritize accordingly. Additionally, HP PPM Center takes traditionally manual project and portfolio management (PPM) processes and automates them within the underlying HP PPM Center workflow engine. This expedites and increases the accuracy of information supporting the completion of PPM processes.
While HP PPM Center automates PPM processes, some organizations need an even faster response time for approvals and rejections. For example, the ClO’s project teams need to make quick and effective decisions without being hampered by the physical location of key employees. This requires that IT managers and stake- holders have access to their own decision points at all times in order to move a project or critical decision forward. HP PPM Center Mobility Access software helps you and your project teams gain immediate access to decisions awaiting approval or denial—regardless of
With HP PPM Center Mobility Access, an HP smart add-on, users are alerted via e-mail that they have a decision to make. Within the e-mail notification, actionable buttons can be used to immediately approve or deny a process request just as if a user was working within the HP PPM Center application. This helps shorten business process cycle times and improve real-time collaboration for all stakeholders.
HP PPM Center Mobility Access has advanced security features yet is flexible, and it supports any standard e-mail client including e-mails accessed via smart phone devices. With no virtual private network (VPN) requirements for remote users, HP PPM Center Mobility Access provides true mobility on any smart device that has e-mail access to the Internet.
How HP PPM Center Mobility Access works
Robust security: HP PPM Center Mobility Access extends the workf low to a non-HP PPM Center environment with advanced security features. It does so by leveraging the native security and audit trail features within HP PPM Center. Only those users who have the permission to act on a specific workf low step will be granted access. It logs all e-mail notifications sent to users, tracks approvals at a user and field level, and preserves the user roles that are defined within HP PPM Center.
Standard e-mail support: HP PPM Center Mobility Access works out of the box with Standard Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP) and send-mail with POP3/ IMAP support in e-mail clients and mail servers. The solution supports Microsoft Outlook clients and Microsoft Exchange Server. It also works with Gmail, Yahoo mail, AOL, and other commonly used e-mail clients for laptop and smart phone devices. Standard text and HTML e-mail formats are supported. Providing your e-mail client and mail server are set up with POP3/ IMAP, no further configuration changes are needed.
HP PPM Center action buttons within e-mail: Upon receiving an e-mail, action can be taken by the stake- holder. HP PPM Center returns a confirmation message back to the requestor indicating the action was accepted by the system.
Complete workf low support: HP PPM Center Mobility Access supports all workflows and workflow transitions in any decision step in HP PPM Center. It enables the approver to provide comments and user notes associated with the action taken in the e-mail body. These notes are captured on the request in HP PPM Center as well, allowing for full traceability of actions taken on the specific request.
Additionally, the HP PPM Center administrator or project manager can configure steps within a particular workf low where e-mail approval functionality is required. It is as simple as selecting a checkbox “Enable Decision by E-mail” for that step. This provides flexibility for users to determine how they wish to receive and act on notifications throughout a business process.
