Planview, a Portfolio and Value Stream Management specialist, launched Planview Copilot—a generative AI assistant for connected work—at its customer event, Planview Accelerate. Trained using a comprehensive data set, the solution accesses operational insights across Portfolio Management, Value Stream Management, and Agile Planning and Delivery to bolster insights and action data-driven, strategic decision-making through a conversational interface.

What is the market offering of Planview Copilot?

Combined with methodologies like Planview’s Flow Methodology and Agile Principles, this collective intelligence enables Planview Copilot to coach and mentor, identifying bottlenecks and offering solutions along the strategy-to-execution journey. Planview Copilot taps into an extensive ecosystem of operating data that other AI assistants cannot access. This includes:

  • Exclusive strategy-to-delivery data from across portfolio planning, enterprise agile planning, and delivery from Planview’s market-leading solutions.
  • Broader data from team tools involved in the delivery of project and product initiatives from Planview’s 60+ connectors in the Flow Fabric.
  • An organization’s current and historical initiative data.

Using natural language processes to interact with teams and individuals conversationally, the groundbreaking Planview Copilot solution simplifies complex data insights and provides clear choices and recommendations for decision-makers across all levels of the organization.

As an early warning system, Planview Copilot alerts firms to hidden insights to accurately identify and address potential failed initiatives before they become too costly, too risky, or at risk of missing key delivery milestones. Planview Copilot offers a more powerful way to understand and improve how organizations can bring ideas to impact, whether you are:

  • an executive leader looking for insights to achieve and sustain improved performance across an organization and forecast the financial impact of strategic initiatives,
  • a portfolio manager wanting clear guidance on the performance of investments based on detailed analysis of complex, connected operating data, or,
  • a team looking to optimize work and reduce waste with modern concepts like project-to-product, Value Stream Management, and Flow, but translated into everyday language.

What does the solution mean for enterprises?

Commenting Planview Copilot, Richard Sonnenblick, Chief Data Scientist at Planview, said, “Building the future of connected work starts with a deep, insightful understanding of how our customers deliver services, launch products, and successfully implement their strategies.”

“That understanding begins with client data: We apply AI and machine-learning methods to each client’s current and historical operational data to predict task completion, provide early warning about tasks requiring course correction, and highlight disconnects between strategic goals and in-flight activities. Through Planview Copilot, generative AI is the icing on the cake, offering an easy-to-use, conversational gateway to these sophisticated AI/ML insights.”

“As firms embark on a growing number of digital transformation initiatives while leveraging a plethora of tools to execute them, there is a huge opportunity to reimagine how smarter decisions can be made to bolster business outcomes,” said Razat Gaurav, CEO at Planview.

“The Planview Copilot solution leverages all the relevant data across project and product initiatives and brings insights, decision support, and actions through a simple, conversational interface. This is an important evolution in our journey from being a system of record to becoming a system of insights for digital transformations,” Razat Gaurav further commented.

Dr. Mik Kersten, Planview CTO and founder of The Flow Framework®, the blueprint behind Planview’s Flow Fabric, writes in his blog post, “The launch of Planview Copilot is the start of a step-function improvement in turning established organizations into digital innovators.”

The announcement comes on the heels of the company’s summer launch of Digital Products Insights, an industry-first convergence of Portfolio Management, Agile Planning, and Value Stream Management. Digital Product Insights is powered by AI sentiment analysis.

This feature crawls comments in the platform for positive, negative, or neutral language to provide a holistic view of plan performance. Together, Planview Copilot and Digital Product Insights further support Planview’s mission to provide proactive, data-driven decision-making and delivery predictability for Connected Work. Planview Copilot will be available in Q4 2023.
