Fujitsu, ProSight Unwrap Playbook for OMB Business Cases

6/13/2003 - Fujitsu Consulting, the global consulting and services arm of $38-billion Fujitsu Limited, and ProSight®, the leading company in portfolio management software, launched the Fujitsu and ProSight Playbook for OMB Business Cases. The new offering is the most comprehensive software and services solution available for significantly improving government agencies' internal business case assessment and preparation, Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Exhibit 300 and 53 submissions, and the capital planning and investment control process. Fujitsu Consulting and ProSight will jointly provide consulting and implementation services for the solution using ProSight® Portfolios software.

New requirements for planning and budgeting have substantially changed how government agencies develop business cases for information technology (IT) projects to submit for OMB funding. The OMB now considers funding based on such elements as strategic alignment to mission goals, risk mitigation measures, enterprise architecture compliance, financial analysis and program planning.

Fujitsu Consulting and ProSight offer an integrated solution that will help agencies understand how their programs are likely to score against criterion in each category, how they will improve these scores over time and which programs are in the best state of readiness for OMB approval.

The Fujitsu and ProSight Playbook for OMB Business Cases and ProSight Portfolios software is an integral part of Fujitsu Consulting's Portfolio Management for US Government Agencies offering that includes the following services:

"Fujitsu Consulting has leveraged our strategic alliance with ProSight to develop a focused offering that will help agencies increase the success of their IT investments," said Rhoda Canter, Senior Vice President, Government Business Unit, Fujitsu Consulting.

"We add value by applying best practices to ensure that investments are well planned, cost-effective and support the mission and business goals of the organization."

"Automating Fujitsu Consulting's successful OMB methodology with ProSight Portfolios will enable government agencies to consistently collect and analyze comprehensive business cases in a much more efficient manner," said John Cimral, CEO of ProSight.

"In doing so, agencies gain access to the most comprehensive portfolio management software available, learn from the most experienced implementation and consulting teams in the federal market, and ultimately, ensure agency compliance with the latest requirements for OMB planning and budgeting."

The Fujitsu and ProSight Playbook for OMB Business Cases will be demonstrated in Fujitsu's booth at the E-Gov 2003 conference exposition at the New Washington Convention Center, June 11th & 12th, booth 1242.
