Project Management and Risk Trends
Jason Kinder, Product Marketing Director, Deltek
As the old adage goes, “The only constant is change.” And, the same can be said for the project management industry. From increased competition, to new processes and opportunities, what are the top trends and challenges facing project professionals today? Join us for this opening session to find out.

Top Technology To Watch
Warren Linscott, SVP Product Strategy, Deltek
In an increasingly digital world, organizations must leverage leading-edge technology to respond to change, improve business processes and better serve their customers. During this presentation we'll review technology trends you can't ignore and how Deltek is utilizing them to drive innovation that powers customers' project success.

Choosing the Right “Cloud First” Option
Dean Edmundson, Chief Strategy Officer, LoadSpring
As cloud continues to take a more prominent role within the modern world of PPM, organizations across all industries are adopting and executing a “cloud first” strategy. With this comes many different options, but the key is selecting the right strategy for your organization based on the following; Security, Performance, Application Requirements, Internal Skills and Cost.

During this presentation we’ll review each of these considerations in more detail to help you make a more informed decision on which “Cloud first” offering (DCaaS, IaaS, PaaS or SaaS) aligns with your unique requirements and why.

The Business of the Modern Program Office
Tom Polen, Planning and Risk Specialist, Deltek

Dan Demangos, Cost Management Authority, Deltek
The Project Management Institute (PMI) Program Management Office Community of Practice describes the PMO as a “strategic driver for organizational excellence, which seeks to enhance the practices of execution management, organizational governance, and strategic change leadership.” When executed effectively, the program management office serves as the backbone of a successful PM approach at an organization. However, not all PMOs are created equal.

During this interactive session our experts will share insights and lessons learned from their project management careers as well as tips and tricks for setting your PMO up for excellence.

Empowering the Knowledge User of PPM Tools
David Moore, Director, Business Services, PrimePM
In a world that is becoming increasing self–service driven, how do you provide useful guidance to project controls personnel and help them learn to use project controls tools effectively? There is often an overabundance of process and procedure documents organized into a document library such as SharePoint. This helps, but misses the mark. It is difficult for people to find what they need at the right level of detail when they need it. An alternative is to establish an online knowledge base – a searchable authoritative source for guidance, requirements, and templates that is easy to access and reference – from process and workflow procedures to tool specific desktop instructions.

Join us for this session to gain an understanding of how to organize and transform current documentation into a single, authoritative source for guidance and how doing so helps personnel increase their proficiency with preferred practices, workflow procedures, and tools.

Automation without Customization: Using Out-of-the-Box Functionality for More Efficient Processes
Jessica Coral, Senior Manager, BDO
Deltek’s PPM tools offer a scalable solution for organizations looking to implement disciplined project controls as a way of staying ahead in today’s competitive market. As that system grows, the time spent processing monthly status and reporting is likely increasing as well. While complex customizations may be appropriate for some organizations, there are efficiencies to be gained without them!

Join us for this session where we’ll introduce several out-of-the-box features that can be leveraged to improve processing time, including loading actual costs directly from Costpoint, batch reporting, and PM Compass workflows – leaving teams more time to focus on the strategic aspects of their projects.
