New PM Capabilities – Trend Analysis
This will be great news to many users as we know some of you have been looking forward to this. PIAB now takes your changes in property data and automatically creates a history of them. You can they use that history data to produce live trend analysis. You can also use trend analysis in reports at project and portfolio levels. There is a choice about the types of displays for reporting including timelines, status bars and value panes.
Other new PM capabilities in version 5.2
We have provided a new set of report templates so you can use trend analysis immediately. These 61 report templates therefore allow you to run off the shelf or to personalize for your own needs.
We know many of you have been taking a deep interest in the new Practical Scrum method. This is included in the release free for all active customers.
We have also provided other new capabilities in the security and integration areas. These are always popular with corporate customers.
