The Gnosis Business Suite 2010

  1. 1. The Gnosis Business Suite 2010<br />Business Intelligence<br />Save Money & Deliver Success<br />© ManageVision, Inc.<br />
  2. 2. The Same Problems<br />Every business, no matter the size or industry, encounters the same, repeated problems with respect to project execution, management and delivery, costing millions of dollars per year.<br />A 2006 Forrester Study of top companies in finance, utilities, manufacturing business services, telecom and IT services in the United States, Europe and Asia revealed a common opinion surrounding the major cause of project failure:<br /><ul><li> 57% of responders cited a breakdown in communications
  3. 3. 37% reported a consistent lack of planning
  4. 4. 35% cited poor quality control and governance
  5. 5. 20% reported a mismanagement of progress after a good start</li></ul>Whether you manage a PMO, manage a client or lead a technical team, these core problems affect the bottom line. Every time. Every year. In every organization.<br />© ManageVision, Inc.<br />
  6. 6. The Value Behind The Gnosis Business Suite<br /><ul><li>The Gnosis flexible governance model creates more efficient project management leading to more “on time”, “on budget” projects, thus significantly reducing costs around projects that go out of control.
  7. 7. Every change and update in the Gnosis Business Suite is logged with user information, date & time-stamp and visible to anyone, at any time from any location. Every level of management knows what’s occurring with each project in real time ensuring complete accountability across the spectrum of teams.
  8. 8. All details from task items to progress reports are available to anyone. Senior management looks at the same information the project team does. There is no opportunity to “spin” results. Transparency is consistently assured at all times!
  9. 9. Everyone is connected to a single repository that includes project documents, message boards, tasks, schedules action items and reports. With a consistent, central location for all data, no one is ever “out of touch” with progress. With automated notification and integrated e-mail, effective communication is never in question.
  10. 10. Because the Business Suite uses a single set of standards, nomenclature and values, uniquely defined by each organization, project & program information is not lost in translation. The governance model ensures each project follows the same guidelines and the audit capabilities satisfy all levels of SOX compliance. Proper governance is never a concern again. Auditors love this!
  11. 11. With the opportunity for senior management to instantly “drill down” and isolate problems, there is greater opportunity to provide corrective action and project control early, when it is most effective. </li></ul>© ManageVision, Inc.<br />
  12. 12. Cloud Computing<br />Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is not a new concept; it’s been around for years, but is now a rapidly growing model – and a central part of the strategic direction – for more and more businesses across the globe. <br />At the March 2009 Directors ‘09 conference in Boston, IDC’s Chief Analyst, Frank Gens, described the benefits of cloud computing. His remarks included one point that is directly relevant to IT failures.<br />© ManageVision, Inc.<br />
  13. 13. Gnosis Is Built For SaaS<br />The Gnosis Business Suite is a Web 2.0 suite of applications that work together to solve the most common project related problems affecting every major organization around the globe. Utilizing the Software as a Service (SaaS) model companies can immediately reduce costs while addressing the most serious problems. <br />These tools were built by business managers with real-world experience successfully managing multi-million dollar projects and global teams for Fortune 500 companies. <br />The Suite provides unique business intelligence that responds to the most critical business challenges affecting every major organization today. <br /><ul><li>Reducing Costs
