Minnesota Smith and the Temple of Unrealized Dreams
the search for automated, integrated, enterprise-wide project management
…in which Our Hero attempts to discover whether the dream of a utopian, all-inclusive system, one that ties all project-oriented data together in one integrated process, really exists. EPM is an all-inclusive system—one that would tie all project-oriented data together in one integrated process. It would even reach out to include nonproject data. The system would be robust enough to support vast numbers of users and oodles of projects. It would be open, yet secure, satisfying the CIO. On the other hand, it would be so user-friendly that casual, infrequent users, with limited project management and/or computer savvy, would have no difficulty. And, somehow, it would also support the needs of project managers.
