i-lign is pleased to announce the release of version 7.4. Hosted customers will be upgraded during the evening on Sunday 8th of May. Release notes are included below, please get in touch if you have any questions or queries.

Value App

The new i-lign Value App prototype is the key offering in this release. 

The value management framework supports both decision-making and reporting and provides the critical evidence of organizational governance and performance.  Value includes ideas, business cases, prioritization, strategies, KPIs and benefits depicted in a range of reports and dashboards. Because it relates to any level of the business it becomes embedded into your organizational DNA.

Value is broken down by the following views:

Overview

 

You now have an overview of value at any level of your business.

Key dimensions here are cost and ownership of programs.

 

 

 

 

Investment View

 

You now have a single view of all potential new initiatives from any part of the business, their investment profiles and proposed benefits

This is about working on the right things.

 

Planning View

This view brings together existing projects and potential projects, and tracks the cost across  portfolios.  It supports approval of new initiatives within the context of existing work-plans.

 

 

Delivery View

This is a delivery overview - a single place to see programs, activities and projects.  It details all current work including projects with their latest status review and their timelines.

 

 

 

Benefits View

This view summarizes benefits attached to projects and programs.  It provides a single reference point to all benefits in the form of a benefits roadmap.
