Real-Time Insight Into Project Performance

Adeaca Project Business Automation™ (PBA) brings company leaders the real-time project insight they need to transform their companies into high-performing enterprises in their industry.

Controlled processes yield reliable metrics

For project-driven organizations, the single most important objective is the successful and profitable delivery of projects. This requires close management of a wide range of KPIs across business regions and project portfolios, and it demands a high degree of visibility into real-time status at any level.

Holistic Project View

To generate meaningful project analytics, you need to incorporate operational as well as financial performance indicators. Unlike most mainstream project and ERP solutions, Adeaca PBA lets you manage project financials as well as project operations within a single solution, providing holistic project intelligence in real time.

Reporting hierarchies

The built-in reporting hierarchies allow you to easily identify potential problem areas at enterprise or portfolio level and subsequently drill down into projects and planning structures to identify root causes. All metrics originate from a single integrated solution, are governed by enforceable best practices and backed by a full audit trail, resulting in reliable and actionable KPIs.

Trends and benchmarks

Raw KPIs aside, Adeaca PBA also provides the tools required to identify performance trends and benchmark your performance against company goals and industry standards. Because there is no data translation or time-lapse between source transactions and visualization. The intelligence is available in real-time, enabling you to make timely and informed business decisions.

Early Detection Prevents Escalation

In the world of projects, it is not what you know but when you know it that really matters. What senior management needs, but rarely has, is a way to easily and instantly recognize changing conditions and risks. Slight but accelerating budget overruns, minor but multiplying issues, or early erosion of scheduled slack are a few of the many common problems in the project life cycle, and all are challenges that can be resolved by timely detection and intervention.

Adeaca PBA™ does all the data mining for you and ensures warning signs are flagged immediately and well before they deteriorate and significantly impact project performance.

Reduce Risk with Adeaca PBAâ„¢ Project Insight: Capabilities

Enterprise Performance Index™

The Adeaca PBA Enterprise Performance Index™ (EPI) rolls up KPIs into a hierarchical index so you can always tell how your company is doing with just one number. Raw KPIs are normalized into index values and evaluated against company goals or industry standards. You can use this insight to set goals for company divisions and track progress against those goals.

  • Color codes make it easy to identify performance variances.
  • Trend indicators illustrate improving or deteriorating indexes by analyzing your performance over time. 
  • Drill down to portfolio and portfolio group levels.

Built-in KPIs

With more than 50 predefined project KPIs, Adeaca PBA provides a real-time holistic overview of project financial and operational processes.

Measure anything

  • Budgets
  • Actuals
  • Commitments
  • Variances
  • Progress
  • Productivity
  • Margins
  • Over/under billing & contingencies
  • Schedules
  • Milestones & deadlines
  • Pipeline
  • Cash-flow
  • Capacities
  • Risks & issues

Portfolio Analytics

Based on user-defined reporting hierarchies, portfolio analytics provide an overview of project and portfolio performance with drill-down capabilities from portfolio groups and portfolios to projects and into planning structures (CBS & WBS). Project KPIs are seamlessly consolidated in a range of project business dashboards including graphical representations of core metrics via traffic light sensor points, bubble charts and other graphic controls.

Sensor Points™

Adeaca PBA's Sensor Points™ are used across financial and operational disciplines to automatically monitor project events, flagging deviations and trends. The sensor point system provides a real-time in-depth view of potential problem areas without having to manually data mine the project. Manage risks in real-time across your project portfolio.

Earned Value Analytics

Based on recorded progress indicators, actual costs and planned execution of a project, the earned value analytics framework computes schedule and cost performance indexes by deducting the delta between planned value, earned value and actual costs. EVA is computed against the cost breakdown structure with performance indexes calculated at every level.


Workspaces are designed to support the execution of specific tasks, for instance, month-end close, managing scope changes, or following up on project schedules. For ease of use and navigation, workspaces feature a reduced menu structure and dataset pertinent to the individual user.

Additionally, BI artifacts highlight important project intelligence relevant to the user and counter tiles summarize your current workload ensuring that work items are not missed.

Adeaca utilizes Microsoft Power BI to give you access to flexible real-time project and portfolio analytics. Here are just a few examples.
