NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Zycron Project Management Office Director Larry Wilson is currently featured on the Web site of Innotas, a worldwide leader in project portfolio management solutions, in recognition for leading a successful implementation of Innotas at the City of Memphis. He has also been named as a finalist for two technology awards.
Zycron’s Project Management Office introduced Innotas to the City of Memphis’ IT organization in the fall of 2008. The 12-member Zycron team uses Innotas on a daily basis to manage more than $8 million of information technology projects for the City.
Zycron implemented Innotas to help the city’s IT organization decrease the prohibitive cost of maintaining and upgrading its existing on-premise IT Governance and Project Portfolio Management (PPM) solution. Zycron also chose Innotas because it provided more functionality than the city’s legacy solution, and it met the city’s IT Project Governance requirements, including easily adapting to and supporting the city’s existing PPM methodology.
“Considering we manage projects for the parks division, police division, fire division, as well as the service requests wrapped around all of those activities, it was paramount we implemented a system that could deliver a comprehensive visibility into all our projects across the board,” said Larry Wilson, PMO director at Zycron, which manages the city’s IT organization and activities. “From a micro level, we also required that the solution more effectively manage resources, budgets, schedules and project artifacts, in addition to supporting executive reporting requirements. Innotas provides this and much more,” Wilson said.
Wilson is also the finalist for the Nashville Technology Council’s Innovator of the Year Award, a component of its inaugural 2009 “Feel the Beat” Technology Awards which recognize those individuals and companies whose success has helped grow Nashville and the surrounding areas into a hub for technology.
This project is also a 2009 nominee for InfoWorld 100, a national award that honors the top 100 IT projects of the year and recognizes companies that have made the best use of technology to enhance their business.
