PMO Functionality and Financials
Data providers are the foundation of a successful portfolio management process. But the PMO/EPMO staff and process are key to long term effectiveness and results. Among many responsibilities of the EPMO staff, two are critically important: ensuring data integrity and providing data analysis. This session will provide an introduction to features in the PDWare Portfolio desktop client that support the EPMO with respect to data integrity and portfolio financial analysis.
