Microsoft EPM Portfolio Optimization
For most organizations, scarcity is a reality, and the number of project requests received by management often exceeds the organization’s budget and resource constraints. In an unpredictable economic environment, the importance of recommending and selecting the right projects to undertake becomes even more critical. Project Server 2010 includes a portfolio optimization engine that helps analysts model different scenarios to identify the optimal project portfolio under various constraints.
This powerful what-if analysis tool uses sophisticated optimization algorithms and embedded best practices to help executives quickly determine the optimal project portfolio under a variety of budget and business constraints. In Project Server 2010 the Cost Constraint Analysis view provides steering committees with a single decision-making portal.
