Prerequisites: Contact Ivanti Professional Services Organization (PSO) to obtain and install Neurons for PPM, part of the Neurons for ITSM Enterprise paid enhancement package.

Neurons for PPM offers several enhancements to the out-of-the-box (OOTB) PPM features for 2023.1:

Resourcing: PPM Managers can now assign Project Tasks to the right person (Resource) with the right skills and available capacity. They can also manage Effort around a Project and have insight into Resources to avoid exceeding capacity, limit assignment outside of job scope, and assign the right skills to any given Task.

Program Workflow and Hierarchy: Programs allow managers to group projects into logical groups or to a specific initiative within the company. Program is an optional "layer" between Portfolios and Projects.

Automated Project Tracking: Project Managers that are managing multiple Projects can track progress and Completion for each Project with the Completion % being based on updated Task data and pre-defined weightings. Instead of having to manually enter a Completion % for a Project with no calculation or automation defined, Project Managers can set their own weights against completed Phases and roll that up to the total Completion % of a Project for a better estimated view of Project progress.

New Business Objects

One new business object is included with Neurons for PPM for 2023.1:

Program: A new business object called Program forms an additional optional layer between Portfolios and Projects.
