Systemcorp this week will begin shipping PMOffice, a Java project-management tool that gives users collaborative, real-time access to project information over the Internet.
PMOffice's strengths include its repository and its ability to scale, says Melinda Ballou, an analyst at Meta Group. "More companies are trying to more effectively manage their multiple projects, including year 2000, euro currency, and Web-extending their applications," says Ballou. "This product helps to manage that."
PMOffice is modeled after processes and procedures recommended by the Project Management Institute, a nonprofit professional association. It will be available this week, starting at $33,000.
