The upgrade from Mercury ITG 6.0 to HP PPM 7.0 entailed a much improved project management module. Project Management has been separated from the actual PPM workbench and is now available as a “zero client” over the web. The new Project Management Cockpit centrally integrates all project activities from modules like Portfolio Management and Resource Management. At a glance, the most important milestones, project status, project risks, scope changes, resource availability and issues show up. Project health or project controlling indicators like Schedule Performance Index (SPI) or Cost Performance Index (CPI) can be automatically calculated and graphically represented.
