About The Event
“Digital Transformation” is the buzzword of the age, and for modern PMOs this means they are busier than ever. Gartner cites a whole range of Hot Topics for PPM, such as Demand Management, Resource Management, Programme and Portfolio Management, Reporting & Dashboards, Strategy realisation and so on. Yet many PMOs are still held back by inefficient manual processes, disconnected data sets and the ever-ongoing struggle of engaging stakeholders.
What Microsoft cloud services help us digitally transform the PMO?
For any organisation already invested in Microsoft cloud, there is an obvious path: apply the platform you already own to the challenges of the PMO. This event will help you make sense of Microsoft services so you can make a start. The modern Microsoft Project is at the heart of this, and so are services like Teams, Power Apps, Power Automate and Power BI. An amazing platform to unite all your data in one place, as the basis for collaboration, automation, integration and great reporting.
What you will learn from this event:
- What are these "digital transformation" tools in the Microsoft platform
- Why do they make a unique business case for your PMO
- What is the "art of the possible"
- What are the real-world considerations when undertaking a tool implementation in this platform
- How can you make a start with very little budget
Expect to see plenty of practical demonstrations of real-world applications, including our highly functional PMO application Power Framework, built in the Microsoft Power Platform.
