4 Advantages HumanTouch Can Bring to Your Project/Portfolio Management

The HumanTouch Portfolio Management Solution has proven to streamline IT organization and deliver results. The Department of Defense (DoD) was struggling to track progress and access funding for over 1,000 projects. HumanTouch set out to implement an on-premise PaaS/SaaS that significantly increased productivity and was able to do so in 90 days.

This took the DoD's preparation for PMRS from a multi-month effort to a much more accurate one that takes less than two days. They are now able to dynamically generate quarterly internal review templates, and produce scorecard-based project portfolio assessments and reporting capabilities. 

In a similar effort, the HT solution was able to help the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) program and project managers streamline program costs, schedules and performance while providing senior leaders “near real-time” situational awareness of the programs’ status. 

Today, DISA continues to adapt and grow management information and decision-support functionality in monthly sprints driving new and enhanced capabilities to their users. The program will now save an estimated $2 million a year in salary costs related to managing projects and portfolios.
