Polaris Product Fact Sheet

  1. 1. As projects grow in complexity, ensuring they are delivered on-time and on-budget has become more challenging. In order to meet their commitments it is critical that project, program, and portfolio managers not only have accurate forecasts but also that they can identify key issues before it is too late to take corrective actions to fix them. Successful project management requires integration of all three project controls disciplines—cost, schedule, and risk— not just in a set of slides reviewed once a month but in an analytical model allowing their cross-impacts to be calculated and analyzed. Advanced Project Analysis Using Polaris Booz Allen’s Polaris is a first-in-industry tool for integrating cost, schedule, and risk artifacts into a single model which can be simulated to predict cost and schedule growth, analyze its root causes, and identify tangible actions decision makers can take to mitigate future growth. Polaris’ RealTime Analytics simulation engine allows all this analysis to run in real-time. By bringing project analysis out of the cubicle and into the hands of the engineers and project management professionals, they are able to tackle the toughest challenges. Making Polaris Work for You Booz Allen built Polaris to help projects deliver on time and on budget. Some projects, however, may need more than a tool to help them reach their goals.
