Demand Management

The Demand Management application consists of tools for capturing, centralizing, and assessing strategic and operational demands. It also provides a single location for managing all the demand information.

The ideation module, integrated with Demand Management, provides an easy way for users to submit ideas and for demand managers to assess before promoting them to demands. Ideation also helps track the progress of an idea as it moves through the demand life cycle (idea to a demand, to a project, enhancement, change, or defect).

The demand workbench provides a central location for viewing and analyzing business demands, starting with the Fuji release. Demand users can access an interactive bubble chart as well as demand record information within the workbench to collaborate on-demand assessment. Demand managers can approve demands and create projects and enhancements.

Basics of Demand Management
  • Set up the application: Plan, create stakeholders and assessment categories, and create bubble charts.
  • Assess ideas: Review and analyze submitted ideas before promoting ideas to demands.
  • Create and manage demands: Create, enhance by adding stakeholders and assessments, and evaluate and qualify demands.
  • Use the demand workbench (Fuji release) or the Demand Management application (Eureka release) to compare and assess demands, and promote demands to projects, enhancements, changes, or defects.
