PMIS – an integrated approach for the management and distribution of project information

a data modeling approach

All too often, enterprise project management departments generate a wealth of information and knowledge that many project professionals fail to adequately distribute throughout their organization, a task that--when done well--consumes a great deal of time. This article examines an integrated computerized information-sharing system that the pharmaceutical firm Glaxo Inc. uses to manage and distribute--throughout its international organization--information on its projects. In doing so, it discusses how this system--a project management information system (PMIS)--was developed and how it functions in relation to individual users, particularly in regards to electronic mail (e-mail), evolution of operating systems, and information flow between Glaxo's United States and United Kingdom headquarters.
