PMO Central® Offers Cost Effective Cloud PMO for Expert-Level Data Analysis

Métier, the industry innovator in project portfolio management (PPM) and portfolio management office (PMO) solutions, announced today a suite of enhancements to the service level agreement of their managed service offering, PMO Central®. PMO Central is the world’s first PMO cloud service wrapped around enterprise software to provide data driven insights and expert PPM consulting.

The increased demand for data analytics, combined with the shortage of necessary IT skills, has prompted a new wave of service innovation at Métier. PMO Central is the world’s first cloud service wrapped around enterprise software that provides expert PPM resources in an ultra-efficient SaaS model. The new PMO Central SLA allows organizations to receive unlimited support for PPM initiatives, including: best practices, training, process creation and refinement, maturity roadmaps, and high-end consulting on any project, program or portfolio management-related question.

Delivery for PMO Central is entirely cloud-based, which, for the first time, allows high-end consulting services to be delivered at a SaaS price point. PMO Central is comprised of subject matter experts in PPM, all of whom are certified by the Project Management Institute (PMI) as either CAPM® or PMP® professionals. Compared to outsourcing to a traditional consultancy or hiring and training internal resources to the same level of experience, PMO Central has been found to produce substantial cost savings.

"In today’s data-driven market, organizations need access to highly skilled analytics," said Douglas Clark, chief executive officer of Métier. "We founded Métier with the idea that PMO Central would be the first comprehensive cloud service driving improved project performance. We are able to supplement our advanced PPM software with high-end consulting from industry experts. Today, PMO Central proves its applicability in changing market conditions as it turns the strain of the IT skills shortage into an opportunity that empowers organizations to better manage and optimize their business."
