Demand management offers a unified view of all work in a central location. Its purpose is to quickly help organizations gain visibility into projects and operational activities; standardize and streamline data collection; enhance decision making; and subject initiatives to the appropriate governance controls throughout their life cycles.
The Microsoft® Enterprise Project Management (EPM) solution provides flexible demand management capabilities to help organizations accomplish the following:
Build governance workflows to subject different types of work requests—for example, a help desk ticket, or a project of any size—to the appropriate controls throughout the life cycle of the issue or project.
Standardize and streamline data collection by using configurable forms and business case templates.
Capture all requests in a central repository to enhance visibility.
The Microsoft EPM solution gives organizations the tools they need to help them define, standardize, communicate, and enforce governance processes to control all types of work, project and operational, throughout the life cycle of any initiative. A workflow platform that is both rich and flexible makes it easy to define the right level of controls in any organization. The unified project and portfolio management (PPM) capabilities of Microsoft® Project Server 2010 provide a flexible framework for capturing, selecting, and delivering all types of work, from simple tasks to complex projects and programs. Project Server 2010 extends Project Portfolio Server 2007 to create a solution that offers organizations a dedicated demand management interface, standardizes the collection of all work, and provides visibility and control across the organization.
