Sopheon’s Accolade Enterprise Innovation Management (EIM) solution offers proven methods and best-practice based capabilities that enable business leaders to align strategic decision-making and innovation process execution. The result is more efficient use of resources, fewer failed projects, and more high-value new products.
Accolade’s capacity for deep integration to Microsoft Project provides for new levels of transparency between executives, corporate project management offices (PMOs), project managers, and innovation teams, ensuring alignment between portfolio investment decisions and day-to-day project management activities. It also enables companies to derive greater business value from their use of Microsoft Project.
This paper focuses on the advantages and benefits of integrating Sopheon’s Accolade solution to Microsoft Project. In addition to reviewing the functional implications of such integration, it examines the fundamental orientation of each application on its own, and the business, process and organizational impact of bringing Accolade and Microsoft Project together.
