While working with Microsoft’s Project Online and Power BI Project Portfolio Management (PPM) solutions, you may have noticed that your data often becomes static within the system. Information must be refreshed continuously to stay relevant, and it is difficult to visualize “what-if” scenarios and ideas. Hammerhead BI brings dynamic power to Project Online and Power BI by providing pre-configured dashboards and enhanced analytics capabilities – allowing users to say good-bye to rigid, Excel-based reporting.

Hammerhead BI offers:

  • A pre-defined data model so that you don’t need to build any external databases.
  • Complete integration with Microsoft Power BI so that you can stay within Office 365 and utilize its tools.
  • Pre-configured reports and dashboards to improve utilization and bring your Project Online data to your fingertips.
  • The ability to extend and modify information to meet your specific needs and requirements.
  • Extensibility into Projility’s Hammerhead Projects enterprise solution for PPM that includes a data warehouse for all your Project Online information.
Add Value to Your Project Online Data

Through a series of reports and dashboards, your Power BI experience becomes interactive with Hammerhead BI. Reports can be used as-is or tailored to meet your needs, pulling information from Project Online and other data sources into your unique data model. Dashboards highlight milestones, work, number of resources, and cost over time for each project, and are completely drillable so that you can dig deeper into your data.

Hammerhead BI also allows you to set certain metrics to refresh automatically, driving time-sensitive analytics and reporting from the back-end. It extends your data model to include more than assignments, issues, projects, risks, and tasks; Hammerhead BI presents data regarding engagements (i.e., pre-project requirements for resources), project baseline information, and resource information.

It Only Takes One Click

Using Hammerhead BI is simple. All you need to do is click on Power BI within Office 365 and Hammerhead BI will display on your screen. There’s no flipping between separate applications or windows to get to the information that you need.
