HP PPM Center gains momentum across the enterprise

By Susan O’Connor, Senior Product Marketing Manager, HP PPM Center

Recently I was interviewed by Christina Torode, Senior News Writer at, about how HP PPM Center is bringing strategic and operational agility within and outside IT departments. Mark Kresge, acting director, IT Program management office at Mentor Graphics, a key HP PPM Center customer was also interviewed. Mark spoke about how his organization, along with help from Austin, TX systems integrator ResultsPositive, got HP PPM Center running within four weeks. The new system provided Mentor with critical visibility into project requirements, associated resources and tracked progress on each element of a project through the use of real-time dashboards. HP PPM Center is also driving value to business groups outside of IT. According to Kresge, “Our responsiveness has improved simply because of the level of confidence now have in us. They no longer try to cram every aspect of a project into a single request fearing that we’ll never get to another one of their projects.” Check out the article here!
