Fujitsu Consulting Offers Enterprise Project Management with EPMSuite

10/24/2003 - Fujitsu Consulting, the global consulting and services arm of $38-billion Fujitsu Limited, launched EPMSuite, which the company believes to be the industry's most comprehensive enterprise project management solution available.

EPMSuite combines Microsoft Office Project Server 2003, the project and resource management element of the Microsoft Office System, with Fujitsu Consulting implementation services and project management methodology, ManagementSuite. The new solution is compliant with Project Management Institute (PMI) standards for practice, policy and process improvements, and is designed to help enterprises significantly enhance their project management capabilities while reducing IT costs and increasing productivity.

One of the key features of EPMSuite is that the solution links portfolio management and project management best practices in order to help enterprises achieve accelerated implementation of on-time, on-budget project delivery.

There are decreasing margins for error in decision-making and project management. The ability to consistently make right decisions and then executing on them well is separating market leaders from followers," said Doug Lynn, vice president, research analyst, META Group. "Portfolio management drives consistency, visibility, and quality into decision-making while project management ensures that downstream changes are optimally managed to proper completion and performance requirements."

"By synchronizing our PMI-certified training, implementation services, methodology and techniques with Microsoft Office Project Server 2003, we can help enhance the credibility of IT departments within enterprises, as well as help insure that organizations are obtaining measurable business value from their project management initiatives," said Ken McLennan, senior vice president, business and IT effectiveness solutions, Fujitsu Consulting."

"In today's global economy, businesses face intense pressure to complete critical projects on time and within budget," said Sanjay Parthasarathy, corporate vice president of the Platform Strategy and Partner Group at Microsoft. "Fujitsu is demonstrating its leadership in project management by capitalizing on the advancements in the Microsoft Office System to help clients manage projects effectively and achieve the agility required to survive and thrive in the marketplace."
