Sensei Report Packs

With over 30 reports and dashboards, the Sensei Report Pack Collection provides turn-key best practices reporting for Microsoft PPM. The solution focuses on highlighting variances and exceptions in the portfolio to enable executives to make better data-driven decisions. The goal is to provide automated portfolio status reporting.

Sensei Report Packs enable:

  • Best Practices for PPM reporting
  • Focus on Variances and Exceptions
  • Enable better decision-making
  • Automated Portfolio Status Reporting

Report Packs are aligned with industry standards from Gartner Group and the Project Management Institute (PMI®) as well as best practices from hundreds of Microsoft PPM deployments across multiple industries. Report Packs are available for both Project Online and Project Server.

Key Benefits

  • Reports are built to surface and highlight key variances or exceptions in the portfolio, which allows decision-makers to quickly take action
  • Project reports pull data from the schedule and SharePoint project site, and are then consolidated into portfolio reports and dashboards
  • Navigate from the top-level portfolio overview through to the individual projects, and all the way to the SharePoint project sites with drilldown reporting
  • Select reports are set up for distribution outside the Microsoft PPM environment and can be scheduled to automatically generate an e-mail with a report in PDF format
  • Key data is highlighted in Heat Maps, and relative sizing is displayed through in-cell Data Bars and supporting graphs to make it easy to focus on what is important
  • Clear and concise dashboards provide executives with visibility and insight into the project portfolio and the enterprise resource pool
