Session 1

The iPPM Business Case

Learn about the financial returns and other benefits of the iPPM solution that are quantifiable, documented and have been featured on NASDAQ and MSNBC.

Session 2

Implementing iPPM
Within Your Organization

The second session is a high level overview of how the iPPM solution can be implemented within your organization. The SAP platform is leveraged for these dynamic PPM methods and processes and are piped to an organization’s general ledger. This makes the PPM solution truly quantifiable and ties to an organization's financials removing guesswork and the subjectivity that is all too common within portfolio and project management.
