GLMS: An Agile Leap - Project Management Solutions Powered By Microsoft Technologies
Project Online and Office365 have been instrumental in ensuring seamless operations across innumerable business processes. However, the incorporation of technology uniquely customized for the individual enterprise is crucial to Project success. “Our forte lies in understanding the Project Management needs of our clients AGILE or WATERFALL and providing the requisite delivery of Solutions to enhance their delivery maturity and thereby, the resulting profitability,” says Gordon Lewis, Founder of GLMS on his organization’s contribution to the Project Management realm.
GLMS offers its customers in the ecosystem, services to help them utilise the benefits of Office 365, Project Online, and Microsoft Project Server to achieve cost-effective and viable business solutions. Having excellent proficiency in these technologies, the firm is a trusted adviser to its customers, helping them achieve the best return on their technological investments. The organization assists Project Managers and PMOs by supporting the tool sets used in their respective enterprises and enables clients to gain visibility across projects, thus setting the framework for transparency and efficiency.
GLMS services the constantly evolving Project Management needs of both Small and Medium businesses, as well as large organizations. Based on client requirements whether they follow Agile or Waterfall based methodologies, the team at GLMS devises either an On-Premise or an Online Solution. Smaller organizations prefer Project Online solutions since they not only cater to their needs but are also relatively easier to implement and support. GLMS imparts its expertise to large organizations by providing Consultation Services as well as augmented or post-consultation support. These services include optimal education of newly appointed Project Managers regarding Enterprise Project Management tools and the fine-tuning enhancement of solutions to best suit the constantly evolving project management needs.

Mr. Lewis notes that the lack of know-how in organizations today, in utilising technology optimally for varied project management needs, is one of the causes for mediocre outcomes of project delivery hence effecting profit-earnings and business growth.
At Pre-Consultation, GLMS conducts a comprehensive research of the Clients’ organizational structure and goals. The GLMS team then provides an architectural direction that is aligned with the organizations strategy.
As an example the assistance provided to a leading Australian Healthcare firm turning them into the largest Health Insurance firm in Australia illustrates the capability of GLMS in bridging the gap between Enterprise wants and what they really require GLMS’ team of experts revealed a lack of alignment between the solution adopted prior and the organization’s needs impeded them in achieving the desired goals. “The client needed our assistance in guiding their PMO project managers and even wanted us to explore the possibilities of solution enhancements for the future,” says Mr. Lewis.
“Project management is a continually evolving, regenerating fresh landscape with limitless options. The key challenges of this sphere plaguing most organizations is availability of suitably skilled Resources and the adoptions of tools that assist in achieving the set organizational goals in the best possible way,” the GLMS Head adds. Although employment of new/ upgraded software over frequent intervals is ideal for efficient project management, it is not the one-stop solution. Hence, Gordon Lewis is of the opinion that the adoption of an Agile Operational Model is vital for an organization to progress by great strides. In fact, GLMS follows a ‘Hybrid’ Solution Approach, a result that supports Waterfall and Agile methodology models.
The team at GLMS is geared to take-off shortly, in the expansion of its Client Base and in the Addressing of Project Management needs of all sizes of Business enterprises. GLMS is also looking forward to continue collaborations with potential strategic partners as a part of its efforts to become a Leader in Project Management collaboration Solutions in the years to come.
