In fact ,cloud computing is responsible for the growth of Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings in almost all applications, allowing organisations to subscribe and utilise a hosted, online service for a variable number of users, who may also be distributed across multiple locations.
By going the SaaS route, companies are spared the, often considerable, expense of purchasing software licenses and the required hardware and infrastructure to run these applications. In addition, the time and effort involved in maintaining and upgrading the software and hardware are no longer necessary. Instead, these concerns become the exclusive responsibility of the service provider.
As a result of this shift, a growing number of businesses are now using online task management software in order to manage and run their projects. Through the innovative use of this technology, much of the planning, management, tracking and reporting on project tasks can now be handled efficiently online with the aid of this task management software. The virtual workspace now offered by some service providers supports a broad portfolio of services from which the user may select those most relevant to his or her operational needs.
As a virtual task management tool, Project Portfolio Office includes a wide breath of functionality. It was designed by project specialists with an in-depth knowledge and experience of the collaborative needs of a project team when successfully running and delivering projects. Despite the powerful functionality, the task management software is exceptionally user-friendly and its intuitive interface is simple to use.
While allowing individual team members to work on their own specifically assigned tasks, the application provides continuous oversight so that the actual status of both individual and collaborative efforts can be precisely determined at any time. This enables existing resources to be re-assigned or additional resources to be deployed timeously in support of those tasks that require changes.
In managing a project, the combination of a powerful application, used and accessed remotely, clearly provides a far more cost-effective solution when compared with a capital purchase. In fact, as a subscriber to Project Portfolio Office (PPO) you are required to pay only for the actual subscription to the service, adding immense flexibility. In addition, the thin client structure serves to reduce the load on network and hardware resources making this enterprise-wide task management software service doubly valuable to all organisations worldwide.
