Florida State University to Deploy TeamDynamixHE for Project and Portfolio Management

Industry-Specific PPM Solution Helps IT Staff to Align Efforts With Overall Mission and Goals of University

COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwire - Dec 13, 2011) - TeamDynamix today announced that Florida State University (FSU) has selected the company's Web-based project and portfolio management solutions to streamline IT governance and project planning and prioritization. Designed specifically for higher education IT organizations, TeamDynamixHE provides a convenient, web-based solution that helps to align the efforts of the IT staff with the mission and goals of the university, while facilitating team collaboration and increasing project and portfolio transparency.

TeamDynamixHE differs from more traditional PPM solutions because of its focus on meeting the priorities of colleges and universities, which are not the same as those of a commercial enterprise. Higher education institutions are driven by increasing retention, maintaining accreditation, political impact and building consensus support rather than ROI or net present value. For FSU, TeamDynamixHE is currently used by the university's central IT organization for a large multi-year project to implement the Oracle Campus Solution modules. It is also being used to track multiple smaller projects and production support tasks in FSU's IT/ERP departments.

"The fact that TeamDynamixHE focuses on the higher education market in product features and functionality is one of the main reasons why we selected TeamDynamixHE PPM," said Bob Wickham, project manager at FSU. "Rather than having to adapt our processes to fit a commercial application, we now have a tailored solution that is optimized for our environment, is easy to use, can be quickly deployed and is priced right. In addition to leveraging the application to manage project tasks and resources across a broad section of our IT organization, there has been interest expressed in using TeamDynamixHE in other areas of the university, including our medical school, large academic departments and telecommunications. TeamDynamixHE is a critical tool in our future IT plans."

"We are pleased to be working with one of the largest and most respected universities in the country," said Aaron Crane, Director of Client Services for TeamDynamix. "We receive constant feedback from our self-governing advisory council, which consists of industry experts, as well as the constant feedback of our growing list of customers who are anxious to support a solution that evolves and improves as more of their peers use it. TeamDynamixHE PPM is helping higher education IT departments across the country to improve their project success and align their efforts with university administration."

TeamDynamixHE PPM is specifically engineered for the consensus- and committee-intensive higher education environment and serves as the central location for all IT projects and planning for leading colleges and universities in the United States and Canada. TeamDynamixHE software and services enable campus leaders to focus on meeting institution objectives, funding IT, building organizational maturity, adapting to change and driving innovation. TeamDynamixHE also includes an intuitive and social working environment that increases user adoption and usability.
