Tab navigation

ProjExec® Live combines effective social collaboration tools and professional project management tools and capabilities in a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) delivery model for cost effective ease and convenience. With no software to download or hardware to acquire, ProjExec Live eliminates many of the hurdles that can complicate project collaboration for virtual teams across organizational boundaries. Subscription-based ProjExec Live leverages the power of IBM social collaboration to enhance project communications and provide portfolio, resource and deliverable visibility in real-im.

ProjExec Live's extensive leverage of IBM's social collaboration improves efficiency for all project constituencies enabling project timeline compression by 20%-30%. The solution assists project/program managers to manage the entire project life cycle according to PM standard methodology and best practices. Social collaboration is organized around a formal project plan and enabled through the Project Wall, a familiar Facebook-style, multi-project activity stream for rapid social sharing of ideas, files and rich content. The Social Gantt enables project managers to have conversations about deliverables and manage deliverables right from the project scheduling tool.  It is a two-way, high fidelity compatible alternative to MS Project, but offers in addition powerful social and cognitive capabilities at a fraction of the cost.

  • + Business problem

    Project teams often consist of employees from one location, partners from another, and suppliers, customers and stakeholders scattered well beyond the enterprise with no time zone, geography or tool sets in common. Cost, complexity, and size can stand in the way of effective project collaboration across distributed teams. ProjExec Live delivers secure, reliable and affordable social project collaboration quickly and easily.

  • + Business opportunity

    Distributed project teams need a secure, reliable and affordable project management and collaboration platform that is easy to use and enables project teams and stakeholders to stay connected anytime, from anywhere. Many organizations today rely on a combination of home-grown solutions and tools such as e-mail, word documents and spreadsheets to conduct multi-enterprise project execution. These tools take time to assemble and require project managers to spend additional time identifying, assembling and locating information. Small to mid-sized organizations in particular lack the resources required to acquire, deploy and maintain comprehensive project management solutions. Readily available through the IBM Connections Cloud, ProjExec Live provides a state-of-the-art social project management solution powered by social collaboration tools from IBM and compliant with PMI standard methodologies and best practices. The risk and complexity associated with typical collaborative project management application is reduced. No learning curve, no lengthy deployments and no expensive on-going support, upgrades and maintenance. Just instant value. The flexible and affordable subscription plans offered with ProjExec Live include a tiered pricing structure to fit all types and sizes of organizations.

    ProjExec Live is widely used by product development and professional services organizations to collaborate on projects with clients and contractors who can be included in projects as FREE guests as long as the number of guests does not exceed the number of subscribers.
