Over the last several years, my relationship with my work and technology has changed significantly. Before, I would arrive at work and know exactly my role for the week, even month. Now, I arrive at work, I wear a different hat with different responsibilities for multiple projects that I juggle on a daily basis. Instead of being tied to a single, company-issued PC, my work activities extend to my smartphone, a tablet device, and even my own personal computer.
Fat client software is the problem. The old rules and solutions based on fat client solutions no longer apply to knowledge workers.
Polarion’s industry leading browser based software is a game-changer, a secure life line, with a focus to supporting me and my colleagues to drive innovation. Don’t give me a manual the size of an encyclopedia and expect me to read it, don’t take me off-line for weeks of training, don’t force me to use a dumb fat client application.
Polarion provides the flexibility and the freedom of convenience to be productive and competitive by using true browser based software with instant updates, workflow, and collaboration.
My budgets are flat or being cut, yet my organization is expecting more from me and my teams; my teams are distributed across the country and globally with multiple projects, roles, managers, and priorities. There is increasing demands for compliance, risk analysis, performance improvements, and quality delivered reliably and consistently.
Silos of data with clumsy integrations is the problem. The old methods and processes based on fat client solutions no longer provide the results I need in order efficiently manage and deliver today´s expectations.
Polarion´s industry leading browser based software is unified by design since first release in 2005. Everything I and my teams require is managed by one UI and one common repository of data that is open and flexible to share with any other application or team of workers. I can securely manage all users, all projects, all work items, from any web enabled device, from any location.
Polarion simplifies project management efforts and reduces my team´s costs and workload, while improving the product quality, accelerating delivery, and the end-user experience.
Revenue growth and cost optimization, driving innovation, talent attraction and retention, government and industry regulations, partner trust and cooperation. Before Polarion:
