PMO & Portfolio Manager

Project Managers drive initiatives forward by applying knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities toward realisation of Board and/or Sponsor approved business outcomes. A significant part of IT Strategy revolves around the progress in realisation of already approved digital business outcomes which then guides / informs the next iteration of forward-looking strategic intentions. Few CIOs succeed in articulating a technology vision and future against a backdrop of underperforming portfolios of projects.

While PPM tools help Project Managers with effective, centralised definition, scheduling, management, and execution monitoring of programmes and projects, Xirocco focuses on richly communicating the overall performance, status, health etc. of portfolios of projects from an IT Strategy viewpoint, using purpose-built dashboards designed to help Management Boards and executive business leaders assimilate this information easily and make critical investment or go/no-go decisions.

Xirocco natively offers a set of foundational PPM features for organisations with moderate Project Management needs that have not have or made investments in specialised PPM tools. With Xirocco, Project and Portfolio Managers can:

  • Communicate portfolio visually: Operate Xirocco’s functionally deep, visually rich, and interactive IT Investment Roadmap and Portfolio Dashboard.
  • Align Business and IT: Link portfolios of projects to strategic business objectives, demonstrate progress and overall realisation of strategic business objectives.
  • Achieve 360-degree portfolio view: Link projects to other aspects of an IT Strategy beyond strategic business objectives, to achieve a 360-degree view.
  • Manage project data: Bulk upload and maintain a rich set of project data. Federate data ownership and individually update each project, directly in application or via Excel template. Note: Xirocco currently does not have WBS and Gantt capability, as this is not usually a level of detail required for IT Strategy.
