“With the roll-up reporting capabilities of BrightWork, we feel we’ve developed a very powerful tool to make IT Project work visible to the rest of the organization. It’s a point and click type operation with no programming required. Today, to update a project status takes 2-3 minutes; to create a new project for tracking in the system takes less than 5 minutes.”
Matt Kennedy, IT PMO Manager, Children's Hospital Boston
Children’s Boston wanted a system to get a “snapshot” of PMO project status that: integrated with SharePoint, was intuitively obvious, could be updated in less than 5 minutes, enabled roll-up reporting, graphical charting, and required no programming.
Using a combination of Microsoft SharePoint together with BrightWork, Children's Hospital Boston successfully developed and deployed an Information Systems Project Tracking system that is used to track and monitor all IT projects. With this system, anybody in the organization with a web browser can quickly and easily access this intuitive system to review the portfolio of projects and see the status of each project.
