Program and Project delivery in IT is becoming increasingly complex and challenging with the dispersion of project teams across geographies, multiple vendors, dynamic changes in scope, and stakeholder expectations of faster delivery at lower budgets. PMO function plays a crucial role in managing this complexity and overcoming the challenges.

PMO Operations

While the value of PMO to successful project delivery is well established, the budgets for PMO keep shrinking year after year. Cloudbyz offers a cost effective shared service model that enables customers to realize higher ROI on their PMO investment. Under PMO operations, we provide support across demand management, portfolio management, governance, program / project administration, financial management, risk and issue management, reporting / dashboard and analytics.
