Part 2: How to Improve Data Quality through Additional Metrics and Monitoring

In Part 1 of this two-part series, we discussed the what, the why and the how of Data Quality. We are now going to expand on that by giving you examples of metrics and monitoring that have been implemented by our clients on their Data Quality journey. The monitoring dashboard in PPO is a great tool to use to evolve your Data Quality metrics. The standard Monitoring Dashboard already provides some of the basic metrics to ensure that your users are logging in and updating PPO as required. We can help you take this further and tailor the metrics to support the monitoring that you would like to do

Part 1: Data Quality – The What, The Why, The How

Data Quality ensures that information on hand in PPO is up to date and relevant. It is a measure the PMO can use to ensure that reporting is thorough and regularly done. It is also a tool that the Project Manager can use to consistently manage their project professionally and according to the reporting standard of the project management office (PMO).

PPO enables project teams to see all of a project’s tasks in one place and is a great tool for the real-time reporting of project progress.

Introducing Conversations on Time Entries, Marking Items as Unread and Automated Emails for Unread Feed Items

So, we’ve added an improvement that will make your day-to-day life easier, specifically for capturing Time Entries. You’ll notice that when the “Items I updated this week” filter under Options is applied on the Time Entries page, your time sheet is pre-populated with items where you’ve started or replied to a Conversation, in addition to the entity updates.
