The leaders of project-driven companies need to think beyond their own department and incorporate the entire business into their technology plans.

SUMMARY:

Project Business Automation is a new category of enterprise software that promises to make standalone project and portfolio management applications obsolete. Project Business Automation (PBA) is an end-to-end system that manages and automates project-driven business processes, including operational project management, financial project management, project/portfolio analytics, and business administration (ERP).

PBA can provide value to any company that organizes most of its business activities in projects, or is a “project business” in short. These companies typically reside in project-driven industries, including construction & infrastructure, ETO manufacturing, industrial equipment, R&D, aerospace, defense, professional services, and architecture & engineering, among others. The category name, PBA is derived from the effort and focus to automate project-driven business processes, regardless of industry.

AUTOMATING PROJECT BUSINESS:

PBA’s holistic approach to project business naturally subsumes existing project software applications within its functionality, including project management, project accounting, budgeting & estimating, spreadsheets, project/program portfolio management, business intelligence and the ERP. It automates the connections and creates new process mapping between these functions in the transparent and transactional controlled environment of the ERP. It utilizes a single data structure that enables this automation as well as real-time analytics and company performance metrics.

This type of automation and real-time intelligence is simply unprecedented in project-driven industries, and that is why PBA renders these standalone project management applications obsolete. PBA can be compared to similar evolutions in other industries that concentrated functionality inside one system, such as ERP, MRP and Marketing Automation, among others.

Today, ADEACA is the undisputed leader in the PBA category. Its PBA solution leverages Microsoft’s ERP as the business platform, seamlessly consolidating all project related functionality inside Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. The people behind ADEACA have deep experience developing ERP systems and standalone projects systems, and have spent the last 10 years perfecting solutions to fulfill the ambition behind PBA.

“Project Business Automation integrates and empowers the entire project organization, breaking down barriers and creating a boundaryless company,” said ADEACA CEO, Daniel Bévort. “The leaders of project-driven companies need to think beyond their own department and incorporate the entire business into their technology plans.”

BUSINESS IMPACT OF PROJECT BUSINESS AUTOMATION:

With the onset of PBA, it does appear that traditional project management or PPM software cannot address the expanding requirements of the modern project business. Companies can no longer afford to look at the disciplines of project management, project financials, project/portfolio analytics and enterprise administration as distinct functions and expect to improve their productivity. Project Business Automation seamlessly synthesizes these functions into one system that automates connections and processes across them all, leading to significant efficiency gains.

Essential characteristics of Project Business Automation include:

  • One end-to-end system that runs the entire business so managers don’t have to manually manage processes across multiple systems and departments
  • Real-time insight on project and company performance to identify issues early and provide executives with the latest and best information possible
  • Aligned & automated processes for substantial efficiency gains ensuring that teams stay on task
  • Easily enforced policies and procedures because they are built into the system

Another benefit of PBA is that it enables project-based companies to move their workloads to the cloud faster and more easily. Since most project-based companies today deal with several major applications to conduct their business, it is difficult for them to move their systems to the cloud to take advantage of its many benefits, including lower costs, reduced IT footprint, better uptime & scalability, and a simplified operating environment.

ADEACA PBA, available as a SaaS application, consolidates all these applications into one system to make the move to the cloud much easier. Companies can retire many standalone applications at once.

ADEACA’s Project Business Automation is built on Microsoft Dynamics 365. Therefore, IT can manage the platform along with the rest of the Microsoft 365 application suite, including Office, from a single interface. This simplified structure enhances the burgeoning appeal of PBA, offering value to customers from many different perspectives.
