Step 1: Get your data out of documents and organized into a structured format.
Step 2: Centralize data from each project phase (scope, plans, defects, tests, change requests, etc..) into a single, smart, structured repository. Important note: teams can still use their preferred tools, and simply integrate the data being generated by those tools into a project intelligence platform.
Step 3: Define the types of critical events that occur during a project that generate the intelligence your team needs to make smart decisions.
Step 4: Automate reports, roll-up dashboards, and trigger alerts to prescribe project intelligence when a critical event is identified from your project data.
Step 5: Grant executives, clients, project managers, consultants and any other team members access to customized views of the project intelligence so they can use it to make better decisions, without all of the manual effort typically required.
It's just that simple, You already have the data
