Hightec and BigPicture

It was a windy morning just before Christmas when we had a pleasure of contacting Mario Cupelli, a CTO at HighTec to discuss their experience with BigPicture. Mario told us about challenges that project management teams at HighTec run into as a consequence of growing product portfolio and motivation behind implementing BigPicture in their everyday work.

Hightec's Product Portfolio

Avoiding complexities

With their growing portfolio of products, teams at HighTec began to feel that the planning process, as much a masterpiece already, required so much attention that it was eating into time and resources needed elsewhere. When asked about the motivation behind implementing BigPicture into their workflow, Mario Cupelli, the CTO at HighTec said:

The need to synchronize development teams with business goals and to coordinate resources in right direction with right timing motivated us to look for an additional tool on top of our existing JIRA tool. We were looking for a tool that would smoothly integrate with our existing Atlassian infrastructure, and which would give us long-term planning capability together with project risk assessment. BigPicture represents the best fit to our project management needs.

And so, the adventure with BigPicture has begun. Product Owners, Project managers, and company shareholders at HighTec used it to prepare future work sets and coordinate ongoing activities.

The benefit of having it all in one

BigPicture offers all elements considered important in HighTec’s project management. By implementing BigPicture, teams at HighTec can easily:

All in one infrastructure which makes HighTec’s life easier. With BigPicture, they see much easier resource allocation shared among different product branches.

The plugin gives is a great support in their “big picture” planning sessions.
