Efficient and agile Project portfolio management with Jira Software

Project portfolio management (PPM) with Jira gives you a complete overview and real-time data about your Jira projects. Recognize at an early stage whether projects are contributing to the company goal as well as potential risks and resource bottlenecks. This supports you in making data-based decisions and reacting agilely to changing customer and market requirements.

Features of our solution for project portfolio management (PPM) with Jira

Project portfolio management with Jira provides you with a valid basis for optimally managing project budgets and resources and ensuring that all projects are aligned with the company's goals.
PPM in Jira offers the following features:

The PPM overview board provides valid real-time data

The PPM overview board provides you with an illustration of the relevant key figures that you need for sound project portfolio management. The data flows automatically from the individual projects in Jira into the portfolio overview, which means you always have the current status of resource utilization, capacity limits, project progress, etc. at your fingertips.

Workflow automation between Jira projects and the PPM overview board

Benefit from the automated transfer of data from the individual projects to the higher-level PPM overview board. This eliminates the need for project managers to enter data manually, which would be necessary with a separate PPM tool. The quality of your PPM data is also significantly improved as the risk of manual errors is reduced.

Integrated solution for resource planning including an approval process

Do you work with resource releases for your project planning? Resource requests can be created and released directly in Jira. This seamless integration not only enables efficient resource management, but also the transparent release of resource requests.
