Microsoft Business Intelligence
The PMWeb Business Intelligence platform is included across all Modules - built on Microsoft SQL Server with Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS), one of the world's leading Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms (See Figure at right). The 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms has only 4 global leaders – of these, Microsoft BI is a Leader for the 11th year in a row. Last year it was #1 for “Completeness of Vision” - and this year (2019) it is now the undisputed #1 in all Leader categories.
PMWeb's use of SSRS also facilitates ready connection with Microsoft Power BI, making the power of PMWeb's reports and dashboards available to key stakeholders without the need to hold a PMWeb licence.
Use of the powerful Microsoft tools for Business Intelligence allows Clients to tailor Dashboards and Reports to exactly what they require - accessing any data in PMWeb's unified database to create the most meaningful graphic representation of the available information - and with the ability to immediately drill down to the underlying data in real time. Some examples of PMWeb reports and dashboards are below.

ITO - Important attributes when choosing software
When choosing a portfolio, program and project controls system, we always recommend that 3 key factors are taken into consideration:
- How easy is it to put information into the system (INPUT)
- How do you monitor the status of that information (TRACKING)
- How simple is it extract information (OUTPUT).
PMWeb does an outstanding job of handling each of these areas through its easy to use interface, copy/paste capabilities with MS Excel grids, and lastly by its powerful Business Intelligence (BI) Reporting Engine.
