Cloud PPM is a Software as a Service (SaaS) based cloud approach designed for organizations to align projects and programs across the portfolio with strategic business objectives. It allows end-users to improve resource utilization, reduce resource gaps, increase project visibility, automate time and expense reporting, standardize project compliance with industry regulations, and facilitate real-time communication and decision-making. It enables organizations to identify potential risks associated with budgets, resources, tasks, timelines, and goals and use in-depth analysis to define what risks offer the most rewards. This helps organizations to proactively manage risks, allowing teams to persuasively estimate potential delays and put into place measures to prevent or mitigate those risks.
