Metrics for Kintana HP PPM Project and Portfolio Management
Deploy Metrics
blue_bullet Do you remember sitting in on the last PPM failure inquest meeting?

The ZDS Deploy Metrics data mining tool provides precise quantitative information on your HP PPM Deployment service levels.

It identifies the specific areas that need to be addressed to reach and maintain your service level agreements.

Motion chart animations show you what progress you're making on resolving the current top ten problem areas.

Try the tool out on the included sample logs. It will run very happily on your laptop and you can add your own logs.

Demand Metrics
blue_bullet Do you know if your PPM Demand workflows are working effectively?

The ZDS Demand Metrics tool quantifies precisely which of your HP PPM Demand workflow steps are bottlenecks, and which users are holding up decisions for the team.

You can use this information to design out workflow bottlenecks, figure out what users need to be re-trained or relegated, and establish practices for regular monitoring and deletion of aging requests.


Try the tool out on us. We've included sample data and an sql query you can run to plug in your own data.

Gotcha PPM Default Demand Workflow Gotcha!
You're upgrading a demand workflow. The request type now has all those shiny new fields, and the steps you've added to the workflow look all set to do cool things. You've done all the desk checking to make sure everything is good.

Time to push it off the edge and see if it'll fly. You create a new request and submit it. And it fails right out of the gate.

Gotcha! ...

Secure your Kintana System
Setting up a robust security access scheme is not as hard as it looks despite the formidable heft of the 140 page Security Model Guide and Reference manual.

The result is easy account administration and a simple to understand access scheme the Help Desk can communicate to the users.

Get yourself security that a SOX auditor would be proud of for Christmas.

Dynamsoft Corporation released SourceAnywhere for VSS 5.2 on September 27, 2007 in two flavors : a remote access version, and a VSS replacement based on MS SQL Server with a GUI very similar to the native VSS interface.

New tools from the international community are VssMon an alert utility by Ivan-Assen Ivanov (Sofia, Bulgaria), SourceSafe2Subversion by Kirit and Tai Saelensminde (FSL Technologies, London, England), and SQL to SourceSafe Scripter by Serkan Subasi (SBS Software , Istanbul, Turkiye).
