Platinum DB Workshop and Webinar Series
In conjunction with SAP America, Platinum DB is facilitating a series of workshops and webinars featuring education content and customer case studies with a view to providing valuable knowledge and thought leadership on a range of high priority Enterprise Project and Portfolio Management topics. This webinar focuses on Capital Project and Portfolio Management and will be delivered on April 9, 2015 at 2:00pm EDT
Webinar Theme – “Idea to Project Closeout”
Capital assets can take the form of bricks and mortar, a manufactured product, consumer packaged goods and even IP protected services. While assets are infinitely variable - the selection, planning, execution and monitoring of the projects that control their creation and ROI are not. Cross-functional collaboration is essential for effective Capital Project and Portfolio Management (CPPM). However, success can be compromised when it is too difficult for users to provide or consume project information.
We’ll explore common practices and techniques used in the end-to-end process “Idea to Project Closeout” that will facilitate greater visibility to the portfolio, improve use of capital and increase project success. Learn how you can ensure adoption of the CPPM process improvements that you plan to implement by aligning UX with the differing roles of your users.
This webinar will also feature SAP’s latest enhancements and user experience innovation within the applications that comprise the SAP Enterprise Project and Portfolio ecosystem.
There is no cost to attend, but advanced registration is required as space is limited. Reserve your place today.
