Database Projects

Enterprise database is accomplished through projects. Whitemarsh supports their efficient accomplishment. The key to successful data projects is quality project management. Whitemarsh's project management focuses on deliverables production and measurement in support of earned value reporting. This stands in stark contrast to a time accounting form of project management, which only accounts for project accomplishment through time consumption rather than deliverables produced.

Whitemarsh project management is supported by metrics, work breakdown structures, and project templates. The Whitemarsh project management system employs work breakdown structure and deliverables templates so that work can be repeated, and so repeated work can be contrasted and measured. Whitemarsh thus conforms to key requirements of SEI Level 5.
