Here’s a case study that highlights why the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Water chose Project Hosts for their very own custom cloud EPM solution. Excerpts are below, the full case study can be found at this link.
The U.S. EPA Office of Water needed a better way to manage software development projects – to keep them on schedule and within strict budget guidelines. After launching Microsoft Project Server 2010 using a Project Hosts custom cloud, and with help from EPM consulting partner Innovative-e, they gained a highly customized online project and portfolio management solution. With this project cloud, the U.S. Office of Water was able to increase scheduling accuracy by half and save U.S. taxpayers up to $1.9 million in productivity.
Already being familiar with the Microsoft project solution, the department’s employees were able to begin taking advantage of the system’s capabilities almost immediately. They were able to save anywhere from six to twelve months that would have been wasted on training, navigation of governmental procedure, and granting access through the firewalls to contractors. By hosting Project Server 2010 with Project Hosts, the software was implemented almost immediately, and without issue.
