ADM - Building a global, resource focused decision-making process
ADM Global technology had been using Planisware for 18 months when they decided to make a push for the Resource Management capabilities of the tool. At the time of the initial implementation, ADM Global Technology realized that Planisware Enterprise was going to be the main recipient for all their portfolio-level data. From that step, ADM built their processes around the Resource Management capabilities of Planisware, facilitating the collaboration between teams (Portfolio Management, Resource, and Project Managers) and increasing the alignment towards the goals by improving tracking and reporting. ADM was able to accelerate delivery and visibility in their PMO, centralize financial and resources data to improve prioritization, as well achieve more visibility for their executive teams and business partners, enabling more informed decision-making.
Navistar - Enhancing their program forecasting and change management business processes
Navistar R&D were facing requests for added functionalities from areas such as finance, PMO, and product planning. During this time Navistar was using P5 version of Planisware’s Enterprise solution, which couldn’t support the requests being made. While workarounds were in place, it was becoming increasingly labor intensive to keep up to date, and knew an increase to capabilities, data accuracy, and productivity was necessary. Their solution: enhancing their program forecasting and change management business processes, fully supported by E7. A phased approach was created to generate short term wins and set the stage for improving maturity over the long term. Phase 1 included resource planning and integrated timecard and Phase 2 included integrations with other systems, and customized reports and change request processes. Since going into production with E7, Navistar’s user base grew from 1,400 to 2,500 users and the organization achieved a 40% improvement in efficiency, accuracy, and productivity

An initiative sponsored to assess core R&D Operations capabilities across Project Management, Resource Management, Financial Management, and Portfolio Management identified data quality improvement opportunities in Project Planning. A collaboration between Project Management, Project Planning, and Business Capabilities was created as the Project Planning Center of Excellence (PPCOE) to define good planning practices, standards and definitions in order to utilize ePlan(BMS implementation of Planisware) as the “One Source of Truth” for the R&D Book of Work (BoW).

Amgen - For establishing a cross-functional truth with Project Mercury
When the question “what was the launch date for a particular program” was asked, it would take give days to get different answers from various program leads across the country. Additionally, executive staff would spend time collating this information into static documents for leadership to view. For Amgen, establishing a single cross-functional truth was necessary for their drug portfolio. Project Mercury was proposed to anchor all PPM and PPM-adjacent data from Planisware Enterprise into a single Data Lake, then the data surfaced through a single set of Tableau dashboards accessed by leadership. Change management was executed for company alignment on data ownership and that the data was authoritative. Additionally, other functions developed complementary analytics using Mercury data instead of competing ones. Having an established cross-functional truth with Mercury reduced the time it to took to answer questions, plus monitor and improve the speed of development of their drug development portfolio.
